Enjoying a superb location in seven acres of landscaped gardens filled with the colour and fragrance of tropical flowers and palms, the Colony Club offers its guests luxury accommodation in an assortment of rooms and suites. The resort is fronted by one of the best beaches on the west coast of Barbados and is within a short drive from the island’s capital, Bridgetown.

From the beach guests at the Colony Club can swim in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea or relax under a shady palm and develop their tan. Water sports are available and the resort offers complimentary gear for snorkelling, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, boogie boards, and water-skiing. Newcomers to any of these activities can receive professional instruction at the resort’s Aqua School.

Away from the beach there are no less than four lagoon-type pools to choose from, all of them having adjacent areas for lounging with a drink or a holiday novel. At both the pool and the beach guests are treated to a spoiling service by the beach and pool ambassadors who offer warm smiles, cool towels, beverages and frozen treats.

If all this talk of relaxation makes you feel bored then there is a complimentary fitness room with a range of cardio equipment and weights to give you an invigorating workout. The tennis enthusiast will enjoy the floodlit tennis courts, both of them having hard surfaces.

Peace and quiet and an escape from the sun can be had in the hotel’s library which has a selection of board games and a computer that guests can use.

Holidays are a time when you deserve to indulge and pamper yourself and what better way is there than to partake of a spa and beauty treatment? The Colony Club provides a wide range of massage, facials and other spa treatments for both men and women from its extensive menu.

The scenery and climate of Barbados has made it a popular choice for a tropical wedding for many years. At the Colony Club there are experienced wedding planners who are able to take on the task of organising your wedding to your specifications, whether it is to be a beach or church venue.


The Laguna Restaurant
This is the hotel’s main restaurant serving complimentary daily breakfast as well as lunch and dinner each week. The cuisine is continental with seafood being a major part of the menus. Guests can enjoy wonderful views of the ocean and gardens from the open-air (covered) situation of the restaurant.

The Sunset Bar and Deck
