Hand-Picked Hotel

Laid-back, all-inclusive resort located conveniently close to Bridgetown.

If you can picture yourself snoozing alongside an adults-only pool with a rum punch in your hand, then Waves Hotel & Spa might well be for you. This contemporary all-inclusive resort is on the west coast of Barbados overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The main part of the hotel lies beachside, while the smaller, adults-only section promises peace and seclusion and is just across the road from reception.

This is somewhere to lose yourself in spa treatments, snorkelling and sailing excursions before jumping in a water taxi and dining out at a choice of sister resorts along the coast.

Of course, you could always stay put if you’re after something to eat. The sashimi and sushi dishes at Shiso restaurant are tasty and refreshing, and you can’t beat Sunscape for tapas-style small plates on an open-sided terrace.

With a white-sand beach on your doorstep and the bright lights of Bridgetown just a taxi ride away, it’s easy to see why the Waves Hotel & Spa is a favourite with repeat guests.

Local Area

Barbados is one of those islands that lets you live life at your own pace, whether you're here for the water sports, the rum shacks or the luxury hotels with the all-inclusive ‘dine around’ programmes.

Situated on the eastern edge of the Caribbean, the island is fringed by white-sand beaches and pastel pink coral reefs. The interior, also, is packed full of vibrant colour, with green rainforests and botanical gardens filled with blooms.

Along the west coast you’ll find monuments and museums in historic Holetown, as well as boardwalks and yacht clubs in the capital, Bridgetown. Underwater adventures are in good supply, with sunken ships and artificial reefs turning Folkestone marine park into one of the hottest spots for snorkelling this side of St Lucia.

From Waves Resort & Spa, you can jump on the daytime water taxi to sister hotels on the west coast – Crystal Cove, The House, Tamarind, Treasure Beach and Colony Club. You’re also free to take lunch or dinner at any of these hotels (with the exception of Colony Club) and also at another hotel – Turtle Beach – down on the island’s south coast. The team at the front desk are happy to make your reservations and can also take care of any taxis.

Please note

  • Just so you know, the hotel is closed for extensive renovations to the adults-only wing of the property until 31 May 24. The hotel owners are undertaking similar programmes of renovations at Waves Hotel & Spa’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 29 July 2024); The House (from 01 July 2024 to 14 October 2024); Colony Club (06 May 2024 to 14 March 2025); Tamarind (15 July 2024 to 25 July 2025).
