Treasure Beach

Hwy. 1, Paynes Bay, , St. James, BB24009, Barbados

Quiet, upscale, and intimate, this boutique hotel has a residential quality. Many guests—mostly British—are regulars. Two floors of one-bedroom suites form a horseshoe around a small garden and pool. Most units have a sea view, but all are just steps from the strip of sandy beach. The super-deluxe Hemingway suite blends Caribbean and contemporary styling and boasts a huge modern bathroom with a freestanding tub and stunning ocean views from an enormous terrace. Two other equally luxurious suites—Hibiscus and Hummingbird—overlook the sea. All suites have comfortable sitting rooms with open-air fourth walls that can be shuttered at night for privacy; three suites have private plunge pools. The hotel's restaurant enjoys a well-deserved reputation for its fine cuisine and pleasant atmosphere. No children under 12 from mid-January through mid-March.
