The small boutique hotel of Little Good Harbour sits in a quiet fishing village in southwest corner of Barbados and exudes quaint Caribbean charm. A cluster of Bajan beach-style whitewashed cottages, traditional fishing boats, and light breezy terraces add to the picture of this delightful family run hotel.
Located right on the beachfront sits an old 18th century stone fort which has been carefully restored and now features the hotel’s restaurant and a few suites. Other suites sit in amongst lush gardens, or right on the beach and each is decorated with wood panelled walls in colours of cream and mint green and feature large wooden four-poster beds, a living room, kitchen and separate bathroom all furnished with Caribbean art.
Sit admiring the idyllic views from your French windows or chill out on your own private terrace, perfect for those romantic evenings with a rum cocktail and a starry night sky.
Honeymoon couples will receive a bottle of French champagne, as well as a free suite upgrade to the 2-bedroom Fort Suite, subject to availability on arrival.
Beyond the bedroom
Not only is Little Good Harbour known for its Caribbean charm but, it’s also famous for its Fish Pot Restaurant, reputed to be one of the best places to dine on the island. A stay here can’t be complete without sampling their baby clams in Creole sauce, pan fried lobster and scallops served on buttered fettuccine, or oven-roasted sea bass, looking out over the quaint palm fringed beach. Located in the small 18th century fort, on the water’s edge, the breezy and atmospheric restaurant is a great spot to relax and enjoy a romantic gourmet meal.
And if you’re looking for further relaxation then take some time to visit The Little Spa situated next to a pretty freshwater swimming pool and indulge in a seaweed wrap, a rosemary and lemon body scrub, or a traditional Swedish massage.
