The Sandpiper, St James, Barbados

With its stunning beachside setting, seven acres of exotic gardens and meticulous attention-to-detail, it’s no wonder this family-owned-and-run boutique bolthole has guests flocking back time after time.

​Days at The Sandpiper are about relaxing and unwinding. Strolling down to the beach for a morning sorbet or lying by the mosaic-tiled pool with a cooling tropical drink is what it’s all about.

It’s hard to believe you’re just a short drive away from the bars, boutiques and restaurants of nearby Holetown and 30 minutes from duty-free shopping and the harbour front restaurants of Bridgetown.

​As for accommodation, many a repeat guest is waiting to stay in one of the Top Tree Suites with open sundecks, plunge pools and beautiful, spacious interiors.

In the evening, weekly cocktail parties and regular live entertainment add to the atmosphere. Together with its superb service, you can see why The Sandpiper is a member of 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World'.
