The Sandpiper Hotel is one of our favourite hotels in Barbados, a family owned property whose reputation has earned it membership of 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World'. Situated on the Platinum West Coast on a white, sandy beach, the exclusive hotel was named 'Barbados' Leading Hotel' at the 2017 World Travel Awards.
The Sandpiper is luxurious and secluded, surrounded by seven acres of lush tropical gardens filled with orchid and coconut trees and flowering bougainvillea. There are 50 elegant suites, each with individually designed interiors and a private balcony or terrace. Some suites have their own plunge pools, while the Beach House houses three separate one bedroom suites which can be connected to create a three bedroom house- perfect for a family holiday.
The hotel's award winning restaurant overlooks the beach and is open on three sides; it serves a fusion of European and Asian cuisine using fresh local ingredients and seafood. Al fresco lunches and cocktails are available on the beach from the charming Harold’s Bar, which has recently been enhanced and now features a large deck stretching out to the sea front.
The Sandpiper has two swimming pools – one lagoon pool which is tiled with mosaics and another 60-foot lap pool. These are nestled within the gardens along with a gym and a floodlit tennis court, with complimentary tennis coaching in the afternoons. Complimentary non-motorised watersports including sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling are also on offer.
For luxury spa treatments, guests are invited to The Sandpiper’s sister hotel, Coral Reef Club, which is located just a few minutes' walk away. This hotel can also offer scuba diving instruction for guests at The Sandpiper Hotel.

A favourite of not only myself, but also the many repeat guests who frequent this boutique hotel every year. All I can say is book your holiday here now, as I am sure that any family or couple looking for small luxury hotel with high quality dining, inviting rooms and privacy in a beautiful setting will not be disappointed. The warmth of the staff and friendly atmosphere makes you feel at home, the various relaxation areas such as the new boardwalk by the beach are peaceful, and the ambience of the restaurant with its first class food creates the perfect Caribbean holiday.
The Tree Tops suite has to be one of the most gorgeous suites I have ever been lucky enough to see, the décor is naturally subtle yet exquisite. Even if you aren’t looking for the top standard suite, don’t worry, all other room types here have been fitted with the same care and standard, and are also very well planned – with the gardens and architecture offering privacy and a gorgeous outlook. You can also dine at the hotel’s sister property Coral Reef Club, and make sure you also stop in at their Spa while you are there!
