Just 35 minutes from the airport, this wonderful hotel enjoys an enviable beachfront position on Barbados’ famous Platinum Coast. Holetown, with its good selection of restaurants and bars, is within easy reach, as well as Apes Hill Golf and Polo Club and Limegrove shopping mall.
Each of Tamarind’s 104 spacious rooms and suites feature a fresh and contemporary décor, cheerfully designed with vibrant tropical touches. The rooms feature a balcony or patio with spectacular views of the ocean or the lush landscaped gardens. The interconnecting junior suites are perfect for families.
Begin your day with a sumptuous breakfast of fresh fruit, pastries, local Bajan specialties or a visit to the chef’s egg station. Beachfront dining spaces invite you to enjoy your meal alfresco while you take in the gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea. In the evening, choose from fine Italian cuisine at Daphne’s restaurant or one of the exciting themed nights featuring freshly prepared and innovative dishes.
If you can drag yourself away from your pool lounger, there are plenty of activities to take part in. Take to the water with a water skiing or snorkelling lesson, or get the adrenalin-pumping with a banana boat ride. If you’d prefer to explore the island, there’s a fantastic range of tours and excursions to choose from, including the popular Rum Shop Crawl and the Scenic Island Tour. The resort even has a complimentary water taxi so you can enjoy the amenities of Tamarind’s sister hotels.
If you’re travelling as a family, the Flying Fish Kids Club is a popular choice, and older children will want to check out Club Tamarind, a teen lounge with computer consoles, table football, table tennis, air hockey, a pool table and flat-screen TVs. There’s plenty to keep the children occupied while you enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the pristine, white-sand beach.
