Coral Reef Club, St James, Barbados

Faultless, fabulous and not to be missed, the recently-restyled Coral Reef Club, a member of ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’, continues to reign as one of the West Indies’ finest hotels.

​Run by the O'Hara family for generations and big sister to The Sandpiper, the Coral Reef Club feels like a private luxury colonial home with a hands-on approach that ensures every detail is taken care of.

Interiors are stylish with wooden balustrading, fretwork and shuttered windows; wrap-around balconies and individual plunge pools which, along with the intimate ambiance, all add up to making this one of the finest hotels in the West Indies.

You’ll find activities galore here, including a dive school, catamaran cruises, two swimming pools, complimentary sessions with a tennis pro and two 18-hole golf courses just a few minutes’ drive away.

And to cap it all, there’s the new luxuriously-appointed spa hosting four private treatment rooms with their own gardens, a couples’ outdoor treatment pavilion, a hydro-pool with shaded cabanas for post-treatment relaxation and a steamy thermal suite.
