Coral Reef Club Hotel, Barbados

Summertime, and the living was never easier. The Coral Reef Club embodies the spirit of relaxation and Barbadian hospitality – as well as encompassing five star facilities and service.

The fragrance of tropical flowers floats in the air. Towering palms cast a cooling shade. The beach stretches away to the horizon, the white sand contrasting handsomely with the ultramarine sea. This is the perfect spot in which to relax and absorb the island atmosphere. But it isn’t just the gardens that whisper ‘welcome to Barbados’.
