Resort Details

Book your stay with Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels and prepare yourself for luxurious, suite-style rooms on an unbelievably gorgeous stretch of coast in Barbados. To be exact, this hotel comes outfitted with 32 basic suite options as well as three deluxe suites for those looking to take things to the next level. Basic suites are plenty spacious as-is and come with their own living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen amenities. The deluxe options expand on these features by adding plunge pools, full kitchenettes and spa bathrooms with whirlpool tubs, bidets and double sinks to the floor plan. It should be added that all rooms feature balconies, perfect for gazing out on the property, the impeccably designed pool area or the beach.

A daily breakfast is included with your stay but when guests are hungry throughout the day, there’s one on-site eatery, Kathy’s Restaurant, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner—not to mention a chic bar area perfect for sipping that must-have tropical cocktail—did we mention complimentary sundowner cocktail? There’s also a spa center just steps away at sister hotel Tamarind, with a full list of treatments available and a fitness center with weights and exercise machines on Treasure Beach premises.

Nearby Attractions

This impressive property places guests on a prime slice of beach in Barbados, and while the area surrounding the hotel is not particularly pedestrian-friendly, public transportation is easily accessible for getting around nearby sites. A short, five-minute trip will usher guests into Holetown, a small, tourist-friendly hub with restaurants, nightlife, a gorgeous oceanfront boardwalk and a shopping village worth perusing. Also within five minutes is the Sandy Lane Country Club Golf Course, offering 18 holes of challenging play, when guests are looking to get competitive.

For taking in the island’s natural wonders, the 20-minute drive to the crystal-lined caverns of Harrison’s Cave is a must, while those looking to explore other tourist hubs in Barbados will be remiss not to check out Bridgetown, St. Lawrence Gap and Oistins, where the weekly Friday and Saturday fish fry gets the weekend started on a festive note.
