You know the moment the car pulls across the wooden platform, past the torches, that you’ve reached a singular Caribbean hotel.
It’s a feeling that pervades The House by Elegant Hotels, Barbados’ now-legendary adults-only oasis on the island’s tony Platinum Coast.
There are just 34 rooms at this boutique beachfront property, each with tropical-chic accommodations filled with all of the little details.
The House recently completed an extensive renovation project emphasizing a “beach house” vibe, one that transformed its bar and “living room,” while offering better connectivity to the adjacent Daphne’s, one of the island’s greatest restaurants. Just as importantly, the upgrades included the addition of a new spa.
What didn’t change? The House’s beloved champagne breakfast.
It all adds up to what is one of the Caribbean’s truly special places to stay — a romantic, luxurious, eminently relaxing place that feels like your own private club.
