There can be few hotels which have such a romantically inspired location as the Blue Haven Hotel. It is said that Daniel Defoe based his classic novel about the shipwrecked Robinson Crusoe on the island of Tobago and the very beach where Crusoe was swept ashore is that on which the Blue Haven stands today. The legend is perpetuated by an old ship's anchor in the hotel grounds, reputed to have come from his ship.
The approach to the hotel is via an avenue of palm trees thought to be a hundred years old. Guests receive a true Caribbean style welcome in the form of a piece of tropical fruit or a glass of rum punch as they check in.
Crusoe’s beach is an idyllic spot for a swim in the warm Caribbean or for relaxing in the never-ending sunshine. If you prefer freshwater plunging then the swimming pool is the place to be.
The ocean plays a large part of any holiday at the Blue Haven as the hotel is surrounded by water on three sides. All of the recently renovated rooms provide the most beautiful views of the beach and sea.
Activities at the hotel are extensive, including a fitness centre and a relaxing spa, offering a full range of beauty and spa treatments. Golf can be arranged at nearby courses and the green fees are included in certain golf packages. There is also a tennis court and a children’s playground to keep the youngsters from becoming bored.
The island of Tobago is full of natural and man-made delights and the hotel can arrange activities such as deep sea fishing, boat hire, hikes through the rainforest, snorkelling and scuba diving.
Tobago is a very popular venue for weddings and the Blue Haven Hotel has special packages designed to provide the happy couple with a truly memorable experience on their big day. Experienced staff at the hotel will help with the arrangements and advise on all the necessary requirements.
A buffet breakfast in the restaurant starts the day off well and lunch is usually barbecue style on the beach. Cocktails and other drinks are served in the terrace bar before dinner which is provided in the main villa. The cuisine is international with more than a hint of West Indian spices.
