There is no water clearer or sand softer than in Barbados — and Sandy Lane has brought top-class service and amenities to the island since 1961. The signature pink hue still reigns supreme; you can tell exactly where Sandy Lane is from the beach by its bright-pink pool umbrellas and towels. Relaxation is a top priority here; the 7,500-sq-ft-pool has a waterfall and tropical gardens where you can soak up the sun.
We love the Sandy Lane Suite for its homey feel; the grand living space opens towards the beach, and the open-air design ensures there’s always a warm island breeze flowing through the rooms.
Top suite: The Sandy Lane Suite from $10,000 per night
On the green: Golf at one of Sandy Lane’s Tom Fazio-designed championship courses, The Country Club or The Green Monkey.
