Overview

This beautiful, all-inclusive resort has an idyllic oceanfront setting, perfect for a relaxing getaway. It boasts one of the most scenic locations on the entire island and offers a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. Suitable for all, the resort offers a wide selection of complimentary water sports, exclusive dining options and a tranquil spa complex. Plus, there are three swimming pools, including an adult-only relaxation pool.

Situated on the island's ritzy west coast, Tamarind enjoys a picturesque and convenient location on Paynes Bay. It’s close to Holetown (just over a couple of miles away) which is home to an array of unique boutiques, eateries and bars. The upmarket Limegrove Shopping Centre is of a similar distance (nearly two miles away) whilst Grantley Adams International Airport can be reached in just under a 16-miles. Head to Bridgetown (five miles distance) to admire the historical sites of the capital city. Buses and public transport operate frequently from Highway One, the west coast’s main road which runs past the hotel. Access the renowned golf courses of Sandy Lane Country Club, just, under a mile away.

The hotel offers an inviting blend of Mediterranean design and Caribbean charm throughout. All 104 rooms are contemporary in style and offer a private balcony or terrace, tea and coffee making facilities, mini-fridges and bathrobes. They are fittingly decorated with subtle touches of tropical, Caribbean colour which is evident in the floral artwork, colourful pillows and understated red and green patterned rugs. Most bathrooms are modern, equipped with fresh units, powerful showers and clean tiling. As you’d expect, Ocean Front rooms and Oceanview Suites enjoy spectacular views across the pristine beachfront whilst pool or garden views offer picturesque scenes of the manicured grounds. Deluxe rooms and Suites are slightly larger whist One Bedroom Suites are particularly comfortable for families who would like separate living and bedroom spaces.

Other facilities

There are plenty of relaxing spaces dotted around the hotel grounds. A wooden decking area is the perfect spot to enjoy the sea breeze whilst sipping zingy cocktails and there are three individual swimming pools which are surrounded by vibrant-coloured loungers and modern cushioned chairs and tables. The main pool provides great ocean views, whilst another has its own bar. The spa pool is for adults only and is nestled in a charming landscaped area – cocooned by tropical plants and mini waterfalls. Friendly hotel staff will frequently offer complimentary treats such as refreshing ice lollies, sorbets or exotic fruits.

Although the exquisite beach has undergone some natural corrosion in recent years, there’s still plenty of space to sunbathe under the sprawling palm trees and to enjoy the safe crystal clear waters. For a truly memorable experience, Tamarind’s wellness programme gives you the opportunity to fine-tune your mind, body and soul. Practice yoga or enjoy a Pilates session. Keep fit by attending an aqua aerobics class or gym session or pamper yourself with a treatment at the spa and on-site beauty salon.

Once you’ve had a chance to fully unwind, take pleasure in the wide variety of complimentary water sports available, including water skiing, banana boating, paddle boarding, snorkelling and sailing. Tamarind's dedicated kids’ club and Family Lounge builds new friendships and fun memories to last a lifetime. The water trampoline provides endless fun in the warm Caribbean Sea while the lounge includes table football, ping pong, TV, games and PCs. The hotel also offers family-friendly services such as children’s menus, baby amenities and the Tamarind Teens Den.
