Virgin Holidays View
This luxury complex will open on 15 June ’13 as an all-inclusive resort exclusively for couples. Set in lush, green gardens, against a spectacular ocean backdrop, it’s the perfect place to re-discover that romantic spark that brought you together in the first place. Choose between a spacious hotel room, equipped with all mod-cons or your very own suite, overlooking the gardens or the Caribbean Sea. When you can tear yourself away from the comfort of your private surrounds, take advantage of the vast choice of activities and amenities that await you. There’s complimentary scuba diving lessons, catamaran cruises at sunset, kayaking, sailing and even swimming with sea turtles – an experience you’ll both treasure. A guided Barbadian Green Monkey trail walk will help you get to grips with nature or do nothing more than laze by one of three delightful swimming pools, soaking up the sun. When it comes to dining, you’re spoilt for choice with 3 gourmet restaurants serving delicious dishes in an intimate atmosphere.
