Opened in January 2015 after $65 million was spent renovating, reconstructing, and redecorating what had been the venerable Casuarina Hotel, this newest Sandals resort, the first in Barbados, has three distinct "villages" surrounding an 8-acre garden and lagoon. Crystal Lagoon Village offers swim-up suites on the first floor and upper-floor suites with soaking tubs on the balconies. Rooms in Ocean Village offer panoramic views of Turtle Beach (one of the island's best) and the sea beyond. Caribbean Village is convenient to the pool and cabanas. Choose among 11 dining venues (including Indian, Japanese, Caribbean seafood, English pub, regional Italian, French brasserie, and New York–style steak house) and endless activities, all included.
