There are some of the world’s most renowned gourmet eateries on the island, as well as the most romantic resorts available via Culture Trip, so you can see why couples fall in love with this Caribbean island. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite honeymoon destinations on the island:
SANDPIPER HOTEL, BARBADOS
Located on the west coast of Barbados, the Sandpiper is a 48-room family-owned resort. There isn’t much to complain about when it comes to the accommodations or services provided by this charming boutique hotel with a colonial design. There is a little pool and a small beach, but they are well-landscaped and quite welcoming. Some of the ground-floor flats feel a little less private, and some guests may be put off by the absence of televisions in the rooms. A secluded entrance forms the beach’s defining feature: the quiet, crystal-clear water. Both Harold’s Beach Bar and the hotel’s on-site restaurant are popular hangouts for hotel guests. The hotel’s sister property, a short drive away, houses the spa, which is not located on the hotel’s property.
SWEETFIELD MANOR, BARBADOS
Located in a historic plantation house, Sweetfield Manor is a small boutique hotel. Tropical grounds are freely roamed by resident peacocks and bordered by lovely gardens. While you’re here, take advantage of the resort’s tranquil lagoon-style pool or the open-air infinity terrace, which provides stunning views of Carlisle Bay. To make your stay even more luxurious, the serene grounds also house a luxurious spa.
Close to the south shore of Barbados, this hotel is located inland. It has a vantage point that allows you to see the ocean from much of the property. It’s a short distance from the UNESCO World Heritage Site Garrison Historic Site, which is less than a mile away. It’s little over eight and a half miles from Grantley Adams International Airport to the resort.
Individually appealing rooms and suites are furnished with a sophisticated mix of contemporary and antique pieces. Cushions, artwork, and carpets all have subtle patterns and vibrant colors. Standard amenities include a safe, coffee maker, Wi-Fi, and a flat-screen television with cable service. Towels and toiletries from L’Occitane and Mascioni may be found in the rooms’ large bathrooms. Breakfast is included in the price of the room. It’s a good idea to upgrade to a room with a private patio so that you can take advantage of the stunning planted grounds at the hotel.
ECO LIFESTYLE AND LODGE, BARBADOS
ECO Lodge (ECO stands for East Coast Origin) is the realization of Maryam and Kyle’s goal to mix the natural beauty and slower pace of Barbados with the sophisticated taste and mindfulness practices of their home city of New York. As they put it, they’re trying to strike the right balance between a comfortable standard of life and an awareness of the environment.
Modern boho style rooms with recycled wood paneling, soft linens, and balconies with seaside views can be found here. Colorful sunrises and sunsets are seen every day, with the ocean’s surface appearing nearly prismatic. The property’s beachfront patio has a number of salt-water cascading pools where guests may unwind with an ECO drink or elixir. You don’t have to leave the ECO Restaurant & Pantry if you want to dine well. Everything about this place is meant to make you want to relax.
THE CRANE, BARBADOS
Located on one of Barbados’ best pink-sand beaches, The Crane is a sprawling resort. It’s usually believed to be one of the Caribbean’s oldest hotels, having opened in 1887. Although the hotel is almost a century old, the turreted hotel buildings are full with modern amenities and accommodations. Restaurants, a town square with stores, and a children’s club are among the amenities available.

Getting to Grantley Adams International Airport is as easy as driving less than five minutes from the hotel.
There are four-poster beds and mahogany furnishings in every room, as well as hardwood or stone tile floors. A jetted tub and shower are standard features in most marble bathrooms. A kitchenette is included in Garden view Junior Suites while a complete kitchen and laundry facilities are available in other hotel categories. It is common for suites to have a private balcony or patio with views of either the pool, tropical garden, or ocean. Upgrade to a room with a private pool, such as a plunge pool, rooftop pool, or mini pool in the room. To get the most out of your vacation, book a Two Bedroom Ocean View with Plunge Pool accommodation during your stay at the resort.
