A&K Top Tip

Stay in one of the Beachfront Junior Suites, with a private terrace and direct access to the beach, this is paradise.

Guest Testimonial

In Laos, the guide added trips to the morning market and an opportunity to attend a shaman ceremony she heard about when we were in the village. I've seen some events, but I'll never forget that. I gather it's pretty rare to see it - the guide had only seen it once before.

One of the earliest hotels on Barbados, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion helped spark the stately cruise-ship rush to the Caribbean in the 1940s but although it retains its elegant colonial style, pale pink façade and old-world grace, its current incarnation and recent upgrade sees the latest facilities, comforts and refinements blend into excellent beachfront surroundings creating a haven of peace and timeless elegance under the endless Caribbean sun.

In the wake of this thoughtful and extensive renovation programme The Fairmont Royal Pavilion's 72 luxurious guest rooms and suites take inspiration from a typical Barbadian house with hardwood floors, gentle interior tones and traditional furnishings. 24 newly built ground floor Beachfront Junior Suites are enhanced by a 250 sq. ft private residential styled deck and outdoor living area, with direct access to one of the islands finest beaches.

Dining at The Palm Restaurant treats guests to a dramatic, panoramic view of the sea with equally alluring cuisine and often light evening entertainment from local jazz artists. In the day time Taboras Restaurant offers a relaxed sea-front setting and open kitchen, while on Sundays, Toboras plays host to 'Steel Pan by the Sea', a delightful chance to enjoy the rhythms of The Sunset Steel Orchestra.
