Barbados / The Sandpiper

A local institution, this cosseting family-run boutique hotel attracts a loyal repeat clientele who come back for its low-key attitude and laid-back informality – a rarity on the west coast.

The more informal little sister to Coral Reef Club, The Sandpiper is ideal if you’re among those who love to really get immersed in relaxed Bajan life and mingle with locals,  thanks to its location within strolling distance of many restaurants, bars and boutiques on the island’s upmarket Platinum Coast. It’s easy to see why this is a place firmly entrenched in the hearts of such a loyal crowd. The food is excellent, particularly the eclectic haute cuisine of Chef Christophe Poupardin and his menus that change five times a week; the service laudable thanks to Wayne and Karen Capaldi’s eagle-eye attention to detail; and the warmth of the staff charming, most of whom have been in place for decades – including island treasure, Harold, who has his own beach bar named after him.

Best room to lay your head? Beach House which can be booked as a three-bedroom villa if needed. This is push-the-boat-out-territory but worth the splash for its designer vibe, wraparound terrace and brilliant location.
