There’s another kind of feel on the south coast of Barbados; a different energy, a different light.
There’s a special dynamism down here, fueled by the St Lawrence Gap, then washed down by the waves.
It’s a special corner of Barbados and a destination within itself.
And tucked away here on one of the island’s most stunning stretches of sand is a very exciting new place to stay.
This is Ocean Hotels’ Sea Breeze Beach House, a relaunch (and transformation) of the old Sea Breeze that’s turned what was an old-school Barbados hotel and turned it into a chic, refined but effortlessly cool beach hotel.
And did we mention it’s all-inclusive?
The design is the first thing that stands out at the south coast’s newest addition, bright and colorful with the feeling of a surf resort — yes, it’s contemporary, but it feels right at home on the sand in Christ Church.
And while it has a boutique ambience, there’s a broad offering here, from six restaurants to three pools to five bars, with the signature Mahogany restaurant.
You’d never believe Sea Breeze, which is holding its grand relaunch in April, has a total of 122 units — it feels so much smaller, so much more intimate. This feels like the next hip hotel in Barbados — not an all-inclusive.
The rooms are great, too, with a barefoot-chic, airy look that is accentuated by the presence of a wave of local art from Barbados luminaries like John Farmer.
It’s part of what is a property-wide commitment to making things Bajan.
And then there’s the beach — 1,000 feet of it, in fact, making every day into the quintessential beach day — without the big crowds. It feels like a private beach.
Ultimately, it’s exactly what it says it is: an all-inclusive beach house.
And that’s a pretty cool combination.
