Not a week goes by when this resort does not appear in the British press. The host of celebrities that frequent this palatial beach front hotel, ensure that the paparazzi are primed on their boats just a few feet from the shore, ready to snap the ‘who’s who’ of the glitterati. Don’t let this put you off though, as what this property has to offer goes way beyond the facade of today’s ‘celebrity’.
Your luxury transportation will meet you from Grantley Adams International airport and whisk you along Barbados’s west coast. As you drive past some of the most exclusive homesteads in the Caribbean, you can’t help but feel that as you approach the gates of Sandy Lane, the rum punch and reggae atmosphere changes. Sweeping down the mahogany lined driveway, a Palladian style building of cream coral stone shimmering in the sunlight appears in front of the sapphire waters of the Caribbean Sea – you have ‘arrived’.
Sandy Lane is the perfect romantic retreat with the most luxurious rooms and amenities. Forget minimalistic and contemporary, Sandy Lane is traditional and plush in every respect. The finest linens and highest thread count sheets adorn the super king size bed, which you will want to laze in all day, but instead why not take the indoors, outdoors to your outside room. Not just any balcony, but with all the comforts of a private lounge. Order room service, share some quality time together and take a stroll along the beach at sunset – what could be more perfect?
For those travelling with children the Treehouse Kids Club has a variety of activities for children aged 3 to 12. Daily activities include arts and crafts sessions, sports of all kinds, tours of the local wildlife reserve and Harissons Caves and even swimming with the turtles. All activites are comlimentary and for children under 3 there is a ‘Toddler Corner’ which they can use when accompanied by an adult. Teenagers are also catered for in their own ‘Den’ with the latest computer technology and table top games.
Above and beyond the extensive amenities and facilities at Sandy Lane, one thing that guests always comment on and remember, is the exceptionally high standard of service. To the staff, every guest is a VIP and they will address you by name – now that’s the personal touch.
