Our luxury breaks to Barbados line up a stellar crop of spa retreats and beach resorts. And each hotel is All Inclusive.

Head west to St James

Some say St James is nicknamed ‘The Platinum Coast’ for its white-sand beaches. But we reckon it’s because of the star-studded waterfront, where five-star beach hotels and million-pound mansions vie for attention. Hotel-wise, one of your best bets is the Club Resort Barbados and Spa. It’s adults-only, plus it deals out a trio of pools and swish suite rooms.

Swing south to St Lawrence

Lively nights and chilled days are the mantra in St Lawrence. The main strip — AKA ‘The Gap’ — is a real mixed bag of high-end cocktail bars and fresh fish shacks. You also get the full spectrum of hotels. If you want to splash your cash, go for the Turtle Beach Resort. Foodie-approved restaurants and a pool with a view are the highlights here. Plus, it’s close to the coral reef at Little Bay.

Shop till you drop

Holetown, in St James, is piled high with designer shopping malls. Louis Vuitton and Gucci are the stars of the show in the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre. And Chattel Village is the place to be for boutiques.
