Tamarind by Elegant Hotels

4.5* out of 5 stars

Barbados’ west coast is known as the ‘Platinum Coast’ for a reason, and Tamarind Hotel occupies prime position here, on a stunning crescent of white sandy beach. This all-inclusive hotel is ideal for both couples and families alike, and is known to attract larger parties and reunions frequently. Indeed, it is as much family friendly as it is an exclusive adult hideaway. Its 104 contemporary rooms and suites, luxurious spa and two tasty restaurants don't disappoint. Nor do its complimentary daily buffet breakfast, Flying Fish Kids Club, Club Tamarind family gaming lounge, beach ambassador service, three pools, complimentary motorised watersports, fitness centre and classes and free Wi-Fi in rooms and throughout the property.

The breathtaking beauty of the ocean view is enough to set this all-inclusive hotel apart from the rest. Should that not convince you, the extensive choice of facilities provided mean you will never be short of ways to fill your time. The three freshwater swimming pools are calm and inviting, a choice of golf courses are conveniently nearby, and the newly launched Elegant Hotels “Aqua School” offers complimentary water sports for all guests.

You may also benefit from a complimentary water taxi between select West Coast Elegant Hotels. For a truly authentic Bajan experience the resort offers a rum shop crawl tour in which guests learn to 'lime like a local' amid the picturesque scenery whilst sampling rum in its very place of birth. Plus guests can get to know Barbados on the coast to coast island tour. And why not take advantage of the hotel's dine-around experience including world-famous Daphne’s restaurant. 

The Tamarind Spa has an extensive menu of treatments guaranteed to make you feel both tranquil and pampered, and the excellent Kid’s clubs - one for children, one for teens - are jam-packed with fun activities for your loved ones. The rooms are spacious and beautifully designed, most offering a sea view. The friendly staff ensure your every need is met, with a concierge service on hand to help you plan your trip and daily activities should you desire.  A true gem on the island of Barbados, this hotel offers elegance, luxury and relaxation as standard.

Please note: The Barbados government has introduced a tourist levy of $19.25BD/$9.62US per room per night, payable locally at your hotel.
