An Exclusive Resort On Barbados For A Romantic Getaway

By: Andrew Watkins

Looking for a Barbados Luxury Hotel, a really exclusive resort with style, then check out the Coral Reef Club for your next romantic getaway.

Exclusive resort is a title claimed by a number of hotels in Barbados and the Caribbean, but investigation can prove that to be a little untrue. That is not the case for the Coral Reef Club a premier Barbados Luxury Hotel, which definitely can lay claim to be one of the most exclusive resorts on the island.

It is a twelve acre sanctuary of attractive and beautifully maintained gardens on the west coast of Barbados, and has been family owned and run for many many years, which gives a real personal touch missing in some modern resort complexes.

The Coral Reef Club has a reputation as not only being a very exclusive resort but also a real romantic getaway.

It is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, with just 88 rooms, cottages, and suites scattered throughout the colourful tropical gardens, and the choices of accommodation range from Garden Rooms and Cottages, to Superior or Luxury Junior Suites, to Luxury Cottages and Suites, to Two bedroom Units, Villas, and finally the Luxury Plantation Suites, so all pockets are catered for.

The top end accommodations are as good if not better than any you will find elsewhere on Barbados.

The elegant accommodations are all spacious, and have air conditioning, and the extras that you would naturally associate with an exclusive resort, and what is particularly appreciated is the fact that there is no charge for room service, something really appreciated by couples on a romantic getaway!!

The Coral Reef Club is closed throughout the summer of 2008 whilst a new Spa is added in the gardens, and this will only add to an impressive array of facilities, which already number three floodlit tennis courts, gym, windsurfing, hobie cat sailing, water skiing off the long stretch of sandy beach that fronts the hotel. By the way the Coral Reef Club has its own watersports set up.

You can play golf nearby, go scuba diving, snorkelling, even horse back riding, so if you are the energetic type of holidaymaker, there is plenty to do.

The original coral stone house is where the very good restaurant is housed, along with the bar and the restaurant, and not forgetting the open air views of the Caribbean, and the spectacular sunsets. The meals are amongst the best on this part of Barbados, and whatever you do, don't miss the Bajan Buffet on Monday evening after the Cocktail Party. Evening meals have an emphasis on buffets, and if you want to eat out for a change, then there are good restaurants to be found locally.

You can be the most exclusive resort on Barbados, and the Coral Reef Club must be very close to that, but it can all be undone by hotel staff who lack finesse. This is very much not the case here at the Coral Reef Club. Not only are the owners completely hands on, their staff really seem to care about their guests well-being, from the moment you arrive until you leave. To call them faultless wouldn't be an exaggeration

It is significant that there are a large number of repeat guests, many of whom are English, and although quite a few aren't in the first flush of youth, they do create a wonderful almost club like atmosphere.

You will find it hard to find fault with the Coral Reef Club, and it is undoubtedly a lovely small, caring, exclusive resort which sets very high standards and consistently maintains them.
