All-Inclusive Resort and Spa on Caribbean Beach
Situated on the western coast of Barbados, the boutique, 70-room all-inclusive Waves Beach Resort takes cues from its tropical surroundings to inspire a leisurely and elegant getaway. Anchoring the spa side of the resort is a large swimming pool surrounded by palm trees and sunbathing beds where visitors can enjoy poolside cocktails from the nearby Seascape Bar. A white-sand beach borders the back of the beachside building of the property, and sun seekers have unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea as well as complimentary wait service for drinks. You’ll also have access to complimentary kayaks and snorkeling equipment throughout your stay.
Standard island-view and oceanfront rooms are spacious and stylish, with tropical views and modern amenities such as memory-foam mattresses and multijet showers. Nestled behind lush gardens and the main pool, The Spa at Waves features a hydrotherapy room, a sauna, a steam room, and a full-service gym. Available spa treatments include massages, facials, body wraps, and mani-pedis.
The resort abounds with eclectic dining options, starting with the classic Caribbean specialties and international delicacies at Seascape. The open-air eatery serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner on an expansive porch overlooking the sea. You can find everything from sushi to steak at fEast, and Spanish, Greek, and Italian fare take center stage at Rosso Vivo. For cocktails, head to the Sunset Bar, located on the beach deck, or the After Hours Bar, which serves libations until 1 a.m.
Saint James, Barbados: Historic Landmarks and Colorful Reefs
Located about 15 minutes northeast of Waves Beach Resort, St. Nicholas Abbey sits atop the rolling hills of the parish of Saint James. Built in 1660 as a private home, the estate spans more than 350 acres occupied by a rum distillery and a Jacobean mansion. A wealth of antique furniture dating back to the 1800s, elaborate flemish gables, and ornamental tudor arches fill the house, which stands amid sugar-cane fields, an exotic flower-and-herb garden, and tree-lined footpaths.
Another nearby attraction is Harrison's Cave, a massive system of crystallized limestone grottos more than a mile long and up to 50 feet high. Stalactites and stalagmites punctuate the interior, where you’ll also find a 40-foot waterfall and reflective pools.
The Caribbean Sea is also prime for exploration via scuba and snorkeling tours. Teeming with diverse marine life, Barbados offers some of the world’s best year-round diving trips, during which you can observe fish, coral, and shipwrecks.
