An award-winning hotel and a gorgeous colonial-style resort, Fairmont Royal Pavilion dazzles with its majestic pink presence on the beachfront of Barbados, in St. James Parish. The hotel started its journey into the universe of some of the most exclusivist resorts in Barbados back in the 1940s when it was known as the Miramar Hotel and the first hotel built on the west coast of the island.
Following an extensive multi-million dollar renovation, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion has taken luxury hospitality to a new level and raised the bar for all the other luxury hotels in Barbados. The reinvented Fairmont Royal Pavilion has opened the newly restored guest rooms in November 2017 inviting guests to enjoy utmost comfort and relaxing beach activities.
Bejeweled with 11 acres of lush tropical gardens often visited by naughty green monkeys, the hotel creates an oasis of tranquility and charms with its casual luxury touches and understated elegance. The spa center moves into the guestroom, the hotel offering in-room spa treatments and experiences, such as holistic Swedish massage, soothing massage, hot stone therapy, aromatherapy, facials, body wraps, and chakra balancing with crystals. All you have to do is ask!
Guests feel at home due to the relaxing ambiance and the presence of a flawless staff that treats guests with courtesy and friendliness while paying attention to every single detail of their stay. From its 75 rooms to the onsite restaurant, everything is beachfront at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion, a resort that captures the natural and irresistible beauty of Barbados and pampers guests with a superb collection of complimentary services, such as weekly afternoon tea and manager’s cocktail, non-motorized water sports, and access to tennis courts.
Despite being located on the golden sand of the Glitter Bay Beach and offering direct access to the turquoise Caribbean Sea, the hotel has its own outdoor freshwater swimming pool and a heated Jacuzzi that can accommodate up to 8 people. The fitness room is open 24/7 although many guests prefer to take advantage of the complimentary use of racquets and balls and play tennis on the resort’s tennis courts, practice water sports like diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, and kayaking, tour the gardens or swim in the sea. One of the highlights of a holiday at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion is the chance to swim with the turtles that have found a home in the half-mile bay and nest on the beach.
The hotel welcomes guests with complimentary breakfast and half-board and full-board options. The dining options include an al-fresco Caribbean culinary and musical experience at the poolside restaurant Taboras that serves a la carte lunch and dinner and often integrates the catch of the day and Bajan cuisine specialties in the menu. The seasonal Palm Terrace Restaurant, recently renovated and embellished with contemporary elements of décor, garnishes every breakfast with magnificent sea views and the music of the waves caressing the shore.
For a relaxed lunch on the beach, the Beach Club is the perfect choice luring guests with beach-inspired light dishes and an exotic ambiance. The complimentary afternoon tea service is one of the highlights of the hotel. The special occasion offers guests the chance to combine the flavors of Britain with the Caribbean bliss. Romantic couples or guests who just don’t want to leave their gorgeous room can enjoy in-room dining, 24 hours a day, no questions asked. Add flavor and colors to your beach days with some of the many signature cocktails, rich wines, and fascinating local rums served at The Bar at Taboras from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
