Turtle Beach By Elegant Hotels
Turtle Beach by Elegant Hotels has an excellent location on Barbados’ south coast, just a short drive from the island’s capital, Bridgetown. The area known as St Lawrence Gap is within walking distance. At “The Gap” as it is known locally, there is a wonderful array of duty free shops and a vibrant nightlife featuring discos, nightclubs and bars.
The Turtle Beach gets its name from the sea turtles that come to lay their eggs on the beach on which the hotel stands. The turtles must be pretty clever because this 1,500 foot long dazzling white beach is one of the best in the area.
At the beach the hotel provides its guests with a range of complimentary water sports including boogie boarding, Hobie cat sailing windsurfing and kayaking. The beach is also a great place for swimming and generally having fun playing games or just simply lying in the sun acquiring a tan.
If you can drag yourself away from the beach the hotel has two swimming pools for you to enjoy along with a whirlpool and a kiddies paddling pool. Tennis players can brush up their game on one of the two floodlit courts where play won’t be stopped by the lack of light. The hotel’s beautiful tropical gardens offer the opportunity to really savour this part of the world in all its natural glory by taking a gentle stroll and taking time to stop and smell the flowers.
Younger guests will enjoy the hotel’s Kids Club which provides a wealth of games and activities for them, all supervised by qualified staff.
It’s fun to try out new things when on holiday and if you’ve neglected your fitness the Turtle beach has a well-equipped Fitness centre for you to have a go at. It’s ideal also for the fitness buff who wants to keep in shape and doesn’t want to miss a workout. As well as the usual gym equipment there are aerobics classes available.
