Starfish Discovery Bay, formerly Discovery Bay by Rex Resorts, has a beautiful location on St. James Beach on the west coast of Barbados. This stretch of coastline is lapped by the warm waters of the Caribbean sea and is an ideal choice for those who enjoy water sports and spending time on the beach.

The accommodation at Discovery Bay is in houses built in the old plantation style of the island and they are spread out over the gardens which are brimming over with exotic tropical plants and blooms.

Much of the activity, or non-activity, at the resort is centred on the beach. Here guests can relax on a sun lounger in the shade of a palm tree and read a book, or move into the sunshine and top up their suntans. The more active can take part in a wide range of water sports including snorkelling, water skiing and diving. Charges may apply to some or all of these activities.

If the beach is not your scene the hotel has a freshwater swimming pool with plenty of space poolside for lounging with a refreshing drink. Further relaxing can be found in the spa treatment rooms where guests can choose from a range of treatments including massage and facials.

Although there isn’t a fitness room on site, guests at Starfish Discovery Bay have free access to a nearby fitness centre where they can keep up with their training schedule.

Special wedding packages are offered to couples who wish to be married in Barbados. The hotel’s staff will liaise with the couple and ensure that all their requirements for the big day are met. The resort can offer scenic locations and, most of the time, superb weather!

The restaurant serves a mixture of international and Bajan cuisine in an informal atmosphere. There is also a varied presentation of meals, some days there will be a buffet and on others table d’hôte.

Sugarbird Bar and Grill

Grills and burgers and other light fare are available throughout the day.

Lobby Bar

Cocktails, wines and beers can be enjoyed to the sound of local musicians in the relaxing atmosphere of the Lobby Bar.
