Searching for the ideal accommodation should be one of the first things to check off on every travel checklist. This proves true when given the opportunity to visit exotic places like the beautiful island nation of Barbados. Whether you’re a bit finicky or visiting with family or a group, careful accommodation planning will make your travel experience more memorable and hassle-free.
The Internet offers every traveler the opportunity to find various attractive hotels online. Many travel guide websites offer information on the best locations for every budget, occasion, or mood. Barbados is among the most sought after tourist destinations, so it pays to know how to use such travel guides to determine when is the best time to visit and where to find the best accommodation.
Travelers who want more accommodation options, for example for a more intimate and private location in Barbados, can opt for attractive apartment hotels.
An apartment hotel in Barbados is perfect for group or family travellers, as most offer two-bedroom apartments that sleep up to four people. Group travelers can save a lot on accommodation costs as rates are relatively cheaper. They also allow travelers complete control over dining and personal comfort with their home-style settings, services and appliances.
Compared to hotels, these properties are usually smaller but nevertheless offer excellent services and high-quality amenities. A typical unit consists of a living room and dining room, with a separate bedroom (or two bedrooms). Each unit is also equipped with appliances such as a refrigerator, coffee maker, stove, and microwave, providing more of a “home away from home” feel compared to typical hotels.
Aside from this, visitors also have access to amenities like pool areas, spas and salons, in-house restaurants, and entertainment areas. To make visitors feel comfortable with the security of their stay, the apartment hotels also have 24-hour security, intrusion detectors and video surveillance.
A perfect example of a nice apartment hotel in Barbados is the St. James Apartment Hotel, a well-known luxury establishment located on the west coast of the island. Formerly known as “Beachcomber Suites”, it has undergone an extensive renovation and transformation into luxurious yet intimate Barbados accommodation.
Visitors will definitely delight in the elegance of St. James, both inside and out. The façade is characterized by elegant balconies and double French windows, and a sophisticated brown-beige color scheme. Unit interiors feature an elegant mix of wood and wicker furnishings and Italian-made kitchens.
St. James is situated next to world-class establishments such as elegant spas, restaurants, tennis courts and golf courses, making it an ideal choice for people who want a classy lifestyle experience in Barbados. For the more adventurous and nature-loving, St. James also has an additional unique attraction: visitors can swim with friendly turtles that frequent the blue waters in front of the property.
If you are in the process of planning a trip to Barbados, remember to choose the accommodation that fits your budget and best suits you and your group or family’s needs.
