A Secret, Well-Kept October 7, 2013

The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados, is rather gorgeous. This Bajan beauty of a hotel is an ideal sanctuary for those wishing for rejuvenation and relaxation. Its authenticity makes it endearingly English, brazenly lush and luxuriously captivating. Located on one of the most blissful corners of the Caribbean shoreline, the ‘Platinum Coast’, it offers rooms and suites uniquely positioned on the beachfront and just steps away from the sea.

Surrounded by lush gardens, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion is more than happy to share its secrets by providing weekly garden tours, showcasing its cornucopia of tropical fruits and aromatic flowers. Alongside the flora, the fauna is not wholly inconspicuous. With monkeys loping across the tennis courts and greenback turtles nesting on the nearby beach, looked after by the hotels very own ‘Turtle Ambassadors’, guests are afforded a veritable array of unique close encounters.

This tropical paradise is a haven for families with little ones of all ages. A gamut of activities from exciting treasure hunts to thrilling watersports, tennis and kayaking lessons will certainly keep the kids shrieking with delight and even teenagers invigorated. At the end of the day when the family regroups, movie nights under the stars will create lifelong memories.

Encircled by clean, clear waters, there’s no surprise that the Fairmont Royal Pavilion champions Bajan produce, sourcing all fish locally. Guests can accompany fishermen on their boats to experience the thrill of the catch for themselves, hooking their own Snapper, Dorado or King Fish which the Head Chef will help prepare and proudly serve.

Barbados has a rich and varied landscape and if you want to venture further afield the concierge will arrange anything from a jeep safari to an underground tram ride through a labyrinth of caves and more. Secrets are meant to be kept, but the Fairmont Royal Pavilion is one secret worth sharing.

"Complimentary transportation is provided to The Spa at Coral Reef Club - we can thoroughly recommend the Signature Fresh Lemongrass and Ginger Rub; it’s definitely worth making the short journey."
