Famous faces at Sandy Lane

Sandy Lane goes straight to the top of the list when it comes to star treatment in Barbados. Frequented by the likes of Simon Cowell, Beyonce, Jay Z and Vera Wang, this resort is no stranger to the stars. The resort is nothing short of breathtaking, as you meander through the marble lobby you’ll glimpse the pristine beaches and famous turquoise waters. It's no wonder Sandy Lane is one of the most expensive resorts in Barbados, and we think it's 100% worth it.

The service is beyond exceptional, with staff catering to your every whim. You’ll even feel like one of the elite from the moment you land, as you get VIP Airport services too. This includes a concierge welcome on arrival and a transfer to the resort in an executive car. If you want to take your VIP experience to the next level, then check out our private jet charter options.

Once there, you’re made to feel like a celebrity with a welcome cocktail, fresh fruit in your room, and an in-room check-in (no pesky reception queues).

One of the most exclusive things about Sandy Lane is the golf course, noted as one of the best in the world and only available to guests staying at the resort. The course is carved from the natural terrain and offers the most stunning views as you tee off. 

Those looking for downtime can completely immerse in relaxation and luxury, either at the exquisite swimming pools with cascading waterfalls and lush tropical gardens or at the jaw-dropping spa. The spa is a spectacle in itself, with a grand staircase that leads you into a world of pampering and serenity.

The Bajan Blue restaurant is simply superior with immaculate views of the ocean as you enjoy delectable Caribbean and Asian-inspired bites.

You can spend your days relaxing by the sparkling pools and wistfully looking out to the Caribbean Sea. Or perhaps you’d like to rejuvenate at the spa, which is literally bought to your door.
