Barbados Has a New All-Inclusive Adults-Only Hotel

By: Andrea Perez - November 2, 2019

There’s a new adults-only, all-inclusive resort in Barbados.

Barbados’ popular Accra Beach Hotel and Spa in Barbados has added a new luxury property to its portfolio called “The Abidah by Accra.”

The resort, which first opened its doors this summer, is a beautiful addition to their existing portfolio, set on the south coast of Barbados in the area of Christ Church.

Interiors reflect a contemporary style, combining bold splashes of color with vibrant artistic textures.

In other words, it’s an all-inclusive in a chic, boutique style.

Accra Group General Manager Suresh Monickoraja told Caribbean Journal the aim of The Abidah was to create an “intimate, high-end” adults-focused experience.

The 44 rooms at the resort are stunning: each includes a split powder room and shower room concept and, most notably, an outdoor spa pool and private balcony.

“They allow guests to admire lush landscapes or breathtaking sunsets,” Monickoraja said during a visit on the sidelines of the recent Barbados Food and Rum Festival.

The property is a short drive from the bustling heart of historic Bridgetown, the island’s capital, and located in close proximity to the endless energy of the St Lawrence Gap, the nightlife capital of the south coast.

Monickoraja said the property uniquely featured amenities like paperless check-in, along with regular beach service.


“We’ve also adapted some of the best practices from other countries in the hotel industry, such as using hydro farming, which will help local farmers,” he said.

The Abidah complements the existing Accra Beach Hotel, which is home to 224 rooms nearby on Barbados’ Rockley Beach.

It’s part of what has become a thriving all-inclusive sector in Barbados, from Marriott’s recent entry to the destination to Sandals’ pair of luxury resorts on the island.
