The Sandpiper Hotel
The Sandpiper Hotel Barbados is a real gem of a hotel and a true vacation hideaway on the desirable West Coast of Barbados. Both discrete and elegant, it has quickly become a favourite retreat for those discerning guests looking for the winning combination of intimacy, informality and privacy.
Owned by the O 'Hara family, who also own The Coral Reef Club Barbados located a few hundred yards further North. Over the past few years The Sandpiper Hotel Barbados has undertaken major renovations including the addition of the fabulous Tree Top suites and now has overall a more stylish look, just a few reasons for being a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World along with its sister hotel, the Coral Reef Club Barbados.
The Sandpiper Hotel Barbados is nestled amongst 7 acres of extensive manicured and very colourful gardens leading to the white sands of the beach. The interior is that of a subdued traditional Bajan theme with its pickled pine ceiling, curtains and prints of old-time Barbados.
Accommodation at The Sandpiper Barbados :
The rooms are located in separate buildings along the edges of the property encompassing the free form swimming pool and dining room in the centre. The buildings vary in style from Bajan coral rock, or stucco and wood, decorated to a theme of brown or black on white, with overhanging balconies. Guests receive a warm welcome, with a complimentary cocktail and flowers in their room on arrival.
The hotel re-opened in November 2015 following a number of improvements. The number of rooms available at Sandpiper has now increased to 52, offering a choice of accommodation, from standard rooms to Tree Top Suites.
The renovated rooms have calmer colours - light blue, beige and green, in place of the chintz, floral furnishings and traditional wicker, with now furniture brought in from the Far East. The latest addition to the accommodation are the Tree Top Suites, interiors British designer Helen Green and each has a private plunge pool.
