Barbados /

With a choice of lavish beachfront retreats lapped by gentle waves and an infectious tropical heartbeat, blissful Barbados has an endearing charm.

Tinged with celebrity and artisan chic, this small speck in the shimmering Caribbean displays a sophisticated soul along with dazzling stretches of star-studded coastline. Luxury Barbados holidays have long been considered the ultimate escape by many, and this is where the smart set parties throughout the winter and returns in summer with the family to relax…the coral sands, swaying palms and tempting waters only part of the appeal. Delicious Bajan food makes an exhilarating introduction to the West Indian way of life – a host of internationally acclaimed restaurants delivering unforgettable epicurean delights. Sip rum punch to the sound of the waves lapping the shore or join in an impromptu cricket match with the locals on the beach – the legendary warmth of the islanders is infectious. Barbados is famed, too, for its fabulous villas and stylish apartments – set in idyllic beach locations or alongside fine championship golf courses. Tucked away amidst vibrant tropical foliage, a unique collection of high end hotels lines the aptly-named Platinum coast, where yachts lie at anchor in mirror-flat waters. Colour rich and calypso filled, the island provides visitors with an intoxicating taste of the West Indies, and our luxury Barbados holidays allow you to fully immerse yourself in the vibrant culture in the most opulent settings imaginable. Carrier representative Avril Gittens, is based in Barbados and is always on hand, should you need any assistance during your holiday.

Barbados /When to go

Barbados is a year round destination with temperatures averaging 24°C-30°C, usually tempered by the cooling trade winds. The winter months between January to April are the most popular months to visit, characterised by warm, generally dry days. Whilst the summer months between June and October tend to be hotter and more humid, with regular showers and the possibility of tropical storms, visitors during these months will often benefit from quieter beaches and excellent offers at many hotels. School holiday periods are always busy, early booking is essential.
