A romantic hideaway nestled amongst swaying palms and vibrant tropical gardens, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados is ideal for couples seeking a quiet yet sophisticated sanctuary. The feeling at this luxury retreat is one of being a privileged guest in a private home, where colonial charm blends seamlessly with the modern comforts expected of an exclusive resort. The real draw here is the accommodation – the hotel is one of few in Barbados with rooms offering direct beach access. Step straight from your Beachfront Junior Suite onto the sand for a sunrise swim in front of your terrace or enjoy uninterrupted sea views from the glass-fronted balcony of your Oceanfront Room. Newly renovated for 2018, every one of the 72 bright and contemporary guest rooms and suites features innovative lighting technology, free WiFi and "chill-out spaces" with luxurious day beds for ultimate relaxation. Dining at Taboras restaurant is an unpredictable venture, with menus changing on a daily basis; regular evening entertainment is presented by local artists and the popular Sunday Brunch is accompanied by the lilt of steel pans. For romantic dining, reserve a top table at the acclaimed Palm Terrace Restaurant and savour haute cuisine and enviable sunset views. Relaxing days on the golden sand beach are enlivened by sets of tennis on floodlit courts, a few laps of the large freshwater pool, complimentary non-motorised watersports in the warm Caribbean Sea or a daily swim with turtles from the shore.

If you enjoy the British tradition of Afternoon Tea, then make sure you head to Taboras Restaurant to enjoy an elegant selection of baked scones with jam, butter and cream, cakes, biscuits and pastries; all washed down with a refreshing pot of the finest English tea. We recommend the Darjeeling.
