Entering through the fort style gates, into the lush centre gardens with waterfalls trickling around me, I was instantly in Caribbean holiday heaven. If the surroundings aren’t enough to make you relax, every guest is treated with a post flight neck and shoulder massage. From here you can treat yourself to some daybed time on the beach, or a delicious meal at the attached well-known Daphne’s restaurant.
The House is designed in a U shape with a majority of the suites located on the beachfront side, with great views of the blue-green ocean, leading from the central garden to the beach is the dining, lounge and bar areas which have a chilled ambience. I loved the newly refurbished suites, which have a clean luxurious feel with the large feather topped beds, and the marble bathrooms.
If you are struggling to choose between a small intimate hotel and one with more facilities, book your holiday here, as you can also use the facilities such as restaurants, pools, activities of neighbouring sister hotel Tamarind along with the other Elegant hotels on Barbados, but don’t panic those guests cannot invade your holiday at The House as their facilities are exclusive to residents.
