Robert De Niro’s Caribbean Beach Club Is Open Again in Barbuda 

By: Alexander Britell - October 24, 2022

It’s been the hottest beach club in the Caribbean for the last year: Nobu Barbuda, Robert De Niro’s new hotspot on the breathtaking little island of Barbuda. 

And now Nobu Barbuda is back again, reopening Nov. 9 for the season with a host of new additions. 

It’s the only beachfront Nobu in the world, with sun beds, private cabanas, beverage service all day until 6 PM and a lounge bar, too, with Nobu-style dishes caught fresh from the Caribbean Sea. 

The cabanas themselves come with some outstanding perks, including beachfront massages available on request, selections of sushi and light bento boxes and personal hosts for the day. 

One cabana comes with its own VIP experience, lounge and private dining. 

And for the season, Nobu is adding several new bespoke experiences. 

That includes a lobster cookout, where you snorkel to the chef’s lobster trap, select a fresh Barbuda spiny lobster, bring back your catch and have it prepared by the Nobu chef. 

A new boat charter takes guests on a fishing trip for the day, one that culminates in a custom-prepared meal with your catch. 

There’s even a new sushi class, where you can learn how to “craft the perfect sushi roll,” with an education on sushi maki incorporating locally-sourced items like conch, snapper and lobster. 

That’s along with a “sunset omakase,” which includes a six-course Omakase menu right on Princess Diana Beach. 

Nobu Barbuda has also added a helicopter package for guests looking to the island, with trips for guests in both Antigua and St Barth that include an all-day experience at Nobu. 

De Niro and his partners are continuing the buildout of the highly-anticipated Nobu Beach Inn, the brand’s in-development hotel on Barbuda. 

The eatery has helped turn Barbuda into a new jet-set hotspot in the Caribbean, breathing new life into the destination after the devastation of the storms of 2017. 

Later this year, Barbuda is getting a major new international airport, too.
