Luxury with a Bajan Personality

Jun 25, 2019


Long hailed as the legendary luxury retreat in Barbados, Fairmont Royal Pavilion – after much anticipation – is honored to welcome guests after a multimillion-dollar renovation. Celebrate the rebirth of an icon, in which the much-loved colonial-style architecture has been preserved while a contemporary beach-inspired design celebrating Bajan lifestyle has been introduced.

The only luxury hotel situated right on the pristine Platinum Coast in the Caribbean, Fairmont Royal Pavilion has enhanced its facilities across the board. Seventy-two newly restored guest rooms all feature beach views, and the Three Bedroom Villa is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and offers garden views from the bedrooms and ocean views from the two terraces. The stunning new rooms and suites create a beach-inspired ambiance that blends seamlessly into the direct-view of the ocean. Outdoor decks have been redesigned as more of a comfortable chill-out space, now featuring daybeds.

Every inch of the property is artfully inspired, paying homage to the artistic heritage of Barbados, celebrating the island’s cultural traditions and natural beauty. The work of famous artists from Barbados is showcased throughout the grounds; from humorous and light-hearted works, to organic and abstract, to simple and elegant, the art adds an openness and friendliness that is reminiscent of the Bajan people.

You can just as easily make a full trip out of beach-bumming it, hanging by the pool, and enjoying the exquisite cuisine at the resort, but activities abound; enjoy early-morning yoga, catamaran cruises, seasonal swims with turtles, afternoon tea, Manager’s Cocktail Receptions, non-motorized water sports, tennis, and other experiences. You can also keep in shape on this getaway (and on your time) – the state-of-the-art fitness center is open 24-hours a day.

This luxury hideaway is ideal for your next spa getaway as well. In-room spa experiences give you the comfort and privacy of your guestroom while you enjoy rejuvenating spa treatments that include aromatherapy, hot stone therapy, holistic skin care treatments, facials, and a range of massages. The Sass Beauty Salon is one of the more prestigious salons in the region, recognized globally, boasting over twenty-five years of experience. Stop in for hairdressing and make-up services, and manicures and pedicures.

Fairmont Royal Pavilion presents a vibrant dining experience right on-site, helmed by Executive Chef Kirk Kirton. Using only the freshest ingredients sourced from the island’s farmers, the chefs have designed menus that highlight local specialties while also delivering on international favorites, all exquisitely plated and with aromatic and succulent flavors. These dazzling plates come with dazzling views, from the culturally-inspired Taboras Restaurant, to the Palm Terrace Restaurant, featuring the very best cuisine in season. In-room dining is also always available, 24-hours a day, so the best flavors of Barbados can be enjoyed in the privacy of your room.

Relax on the beach or get adventurous or a little bit of both in Barbados – with luxury as your backdrop. Contact a Travel Advisor to get started on your luxury retreat to the Fairmont Royal Pavilion.
