Sandy Lane Hotel and Golf Club Review
Few places in the Caribbean can compare to Sandy Lane's luxurious facilities and ultrapampering service—or to its astronomical prices. But for the few who can afford to stay here, it's an unparalleled experience. The main building of this exquisite resort is a coral-stone, Palladian-style mansion facing a sweeping stretch of beach shaded by mature trees. Guest accommodations, sumptuous in every detail, include three flat-screen TVs with DVD players, full in-room wet bar, a personal butler, and remote-controlled everything—even the draperies. The amazing spa, housed in a magnificent Romanesque building, is a vacation in itself. Add elegant dining, the Caribbean's best golf courses, a tennis center, a full complement of water sports, a special lounge for teenagers, incomparable style...even an airport welcome and transfers via Mercedes.
Ultimate Beach Retreat
Few places on earth can top the Sandy Lane's luxurious facilities and ultra-attentive service—or its astronomical prices. Indeed, for those who can afford to stay at this refined Barbados hotel (rates start at $1,445 a night), it's an unparalleled beach resort experience—the cream of the Caribbean crop. The exquisite centerpiece, a Palladian-style mansion facing a sweeping stretch of powder-soft sand, is paired with three golf courses that consistently rank among the region's best. And a day (or more) at the amazing 30,000 square-foot spa is a vacation in itself. Add elegant dining, a first-rate tennis center, a full raft of water sports, a special teenager-friendly lounge, and incomparable style, and it's an obvious candidate for a once-in-a-lifetime splurge.
