Tamarind by Elegant Hotels


Hand-Picked Hotel

White sands, swimming pools and a free water taxi to sister hotels on the West Coast.

This relaxed and friendly beach resort is on the west coast of Barbados, with a complimentary water taxi service to its sister hotels inviting you to get out and about to explore. Thanks to the all-inclusive ‘dine around’ programme, you’re also given the opportunity to eat somewhere different every night of the week.

When you’re not relaxing by the adults-only pool or on your private patio or balcony you can spend time padding on the soft, sandy beach or head into historic Holetown for some boutique shopping. Afternoons can be enjoyed at the Yin Yang Spa before you ease into an evening of live entertainment and themed nights as the sun sets.

Holiday location

Local Area

Barbados is nestled slightly to the east of the main chain of islands in the Caribbean, and filled with lush botanical gardens, historic sugarcane plantations and endless miles of white, sandy beaches and offshore coral reefs. The island’s west coast, especially, has become known for its upscale spa resorts and fine dining venues.

Tamarind is within walking distance to its sister hotels Treasure Beach and The House, and the complimentary daytime water taxi service will ferry you along the west coast to Waves Resort & Spa, Crystal Cove and Colony Club. For guests staying at an all-inclusive resort such as Tamarind, you also have access to a choice of dining options, at all the hotels name-checked above (with the exception of Colony Club) and also at another sister hotel – Turtle Beach – down on the island’s south coast. All you need to do is ask the front desk to make a reservation; they can also book taxis if required. Alternatively, you can get a glimpse of local life by heading into Holetown (just three kilometres from the hotel) or enjoy an excursion to the island’s capital, Bridgetown. Both have their fair share of museums and monuments as well as shops and bars.

From the limestone caverns and subterranean stalagmites at Harrisons’ Cave to the Mount Gay Rum Distillery and underwater adventures at Folkestone Marine Park; if you’re thinking that Barbados is only good for sun, sea and sand, here’s where you think again.

Please note

  • Just so you know, the hotel will be closed from 31 July 2024 until 30 September 2025 for extensive renovations.  The hotel owners are undertaking similar programmes of renovations at Tamarind’s sister hotels, during which time access to facilities (potentially including restaurants featured as part of the ‘dine around’ programme) may be limited or withdrawn without notice – Treasure Beach (until 30 November 2024); The House (from 15 July 2024 to 15 November 2024); Colony Club (03 June 2024 until 30 April 2025); Crystal Cove (01 February 2025 – 01 February 2026) and Turtle Beach (01 February 2025 – 01 February 2026).
