Alternative Stay in Barbados

Alternative Stay in Barbados

My wife and I will be staying at the Hilton Barbados for six nights, which is on Needham's point near bridgetown. We have an additional 4 nights we can stay in Barbados or somewhere near Barbados. Is there another area we could stay on the island that would give us a different atmosphere than being in or near bridgetown? Maybe something a little more "out of the way"? Or does anyone have a recommendation on another close island we could hop to for those several nights for a different atmosphere? We recently did a trip to Tortola and stayed 6 nights, then went to Jost Van Dyke for a few nights and really liked the change of pace it gave to our trip...anything similar we could do for this stay?

Thanks,

JL

Well, you could stay on the East Coast, which will give you that remote feeling without having to leave the island. Look at this place :

http://www.atlantishotelbarbados.com/ or the same owners have this place up the West Coast which is not quite as remote, but quite nice as well.

I highly second those two excellent recommendations by Chrisky. You really can't go wrong with either one to be honest. The only other place I'd throw into the mix is the Sugar Cane Club which is 5 mins drive from Little Good Harbour. Although it isn't on the beach, there is an efficient compliimentary service that ferries guests to the beach and back.

You could also fly to another island - Liat fly to St Vincent, St Lucia, Grenada amongst others. SVG fly to some of the smaller Grenadine islands that are just stunning.

We took a long weekend when in Barbados, flew to St Vincent, took the mailboat to Mayreau (tiny, lovely!!) for a few days, did a boat trip to the Tobago Cays, then mailboat back to St Vincent and flew back to Barbados, not overly expensive, and absolutely amazing!

No problem :O)

We stayed at a place called Dennis' Hideaway, it was relatively basic - depending on what you are used to, but we spent next to no time in the room, so no matter really!

If you are thinking of going there, you have to time it right as the mailboat only goes every few days, or alternatively, fly to Union with SVG and Dennis will pick you up from there on his boat!

there's a very exciting place at the Bequia Island (Grenadines) - Old Fort Plantation. Incredible views, great beach and a very nice island itself. There are many short flights from Barbados to Bequia
