The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, St James, Barbados

Wonderful as a honeymoon destination, a family escape – or something in between – this elegant patch of the beautiful Platinum Coast is a winning example of flawless Barbadian hospitality.

​Old English charm basking under a Caribbean sun, this much-loved, tranquil resort is ideal for privacy-seeking couples, and popular for families looking to really treat the kids.

Beachfront Junior Suites provide spacious living quarters that open out onto sand and sea, a dedicated butler, complimentary evening canapés and an airport fast-track service, plus a private terrace coming in at a roomy 250 sq ft, while the villas offer an even grander scale of living.

​And if you need a break from the beach’s warm waters and pale coral sands, the elegant pool offers refreshing respite – as do in-room spa services. Then there are the little things, like the package of complimentary services from non­motorised watersports to Wi-Fi and afternoon tea.

Meanwhile, the hotel’s Palm Restaurant – one of Barbados’ most in-demand culinary venues – has garnered an enviable reputation thanks to its picturesque beach setting and charismatic Caribbean-inspired menu.

Instead they remind us of our heritage with thoughtful touches and captivating traditions (afternoon tea anyone?) still the highlight of every day.
