The House by Elegant Hotels
Set on a pristine stretch of white sand on Barbados’ West Coast, The House is the beachside version of a hip downtown hotel. On a design front its combination of smooth lines of teak, crisp white love seats and ambient torchlights set a mood that is suitably exotic. Yet it’s a beautifully intimate place with plenty of privacy for romantic dining. For food lovers, The House itself may be one of the best hunting grounds on the island, because the most acclaimed addition to the Barbados restaurant scene is the adjacent Daphne’s. Located bang on the beach, this satellite of the famous London restaurant serves a metropolitan version of Italian dishes, with an emphasis on seafood and is regarded by many as better than the original. Let your Hotel Ambassador organise your complimentary jet-lag massage, a round of golf at nearby Apes Hill Golf Course, spa treatments in a beachside cabana, or try your hand at the complimentary water sports. The service extends down to the beach and The Deck, with complimentary afternoon tea and evening canapés. Why not take advantage of the new Romance Concierge programme, where a dedicated Romance Ambassador is on hand to customise a surprise romantic event you vision if you are celebrating a birthday, proposal, honeymoon, or, just because.
