Soft white sand between your toes, an exclusive Barbados beachfront and an iconic hotel — where else in the world would you rather spend time with your family this summer?
Just the mention of Sandy Lane evokes a sense of luxurious hospitality, dreamy Caribbean shores and exceptional resort facilities. Playing host to an enviable golf course, extensive spa and glamorous shoreline, this prestigious Barbados enclave for the rich and famous has been attracting discerning guests since 1933. Far from just a haven for adults however, younger guests are also welcomed with a wide Bajan smile and they too receive the famous VIP treatment in equal measure.
A Celebrated Setting
Sandy Lane’s peaceful setting, tranquil shallow bay and commitment to privacy is very much valued by families. Parents seeking superb facilities within a secluded setting will discover a former sugar plantation transformed into an unrivalled Caribbean address. A gated resort filled with classic attractions, Sandy Lane is very much a place to be ‘seen’. Boasting a ‘club-like’ atmosphere, where loyal guests meet up with friends during their seasonal stay, families seemingly ‘grow-up’ together, with life-long bonds firmly cemented in the salubrious sand.
Having arrived in sumptuous style, and driven past the Mahogany trees, embrace an inviting wave of blue vistas and hints of ink, before finding yourself ensconced beside the glistening Caribbean Sea. From the elevated and elegant terraces, drink-in the views, or savour the sunset from your private terrace. Children and adults, alike will immediately be tempted by the allure of the dazzling Caribbean Sea.
With its signature pink furnishings, exclusive Green Monkey golf course, renowned L’Acajou restaurant, elegant Palladian-style architecture, Rolls-Royce arrivals and The Treehouse Club for youngsters, every age is effortlessly accommodated in ever-so-stylish rooms and suites. The large balconies and classic furnishings are ideal for relaxing and retreating for an afternoon siesta. Whilst for those families seeking yet more privacy and space, then the adjacent One Sandy Lane private villa offers the ultimate stay, with remarkable service plus exclusive resort and beach access.
The Treehouse Club
An expertly supervised children’s activity and entertainment centre, designed for children over 3 years of age, The Treehouse Club is open from 10am to 8pm daily. Offering a wealth of arts and crafts, drama, sports, and games, plus activities such as tennis and sailing, this is an ideal spot to make new friends and learn a new skill. Whilst a typical morning revolves around the playground area, an hourly swim and fun activities, the afternoon and evening may entail a movie (indoor or outdoor), dinner party, birthday celebration or pool party! Under-3s are not left out of the fun, since The Treehouse Club is open to little ones under 3 years when accompanied by an adult, nanny or babysitter. A shaded area, filled with puzzles, toys and games, is also readily available for curious little ones throughout their stay.
The Den For Teens
Teenagers are far from left in the shade, since The Den is a dedicated area especially for them. Located on the lower level of The Treehouse Club, teens can enjoy their own lounge area, complete with an adjacent games room featuring pool tables and foosball. Electronic gaming, board games, a jukebox and computer stations — not to mention two large-screen televisions and DVDs — ensure that there is never a dull moment. Of course, it’s the tailored island tours, sports clinics, watersports and coastal cruises that are likely to shine with teen appeal. The beach itself is a magnet for honing watersports skills — whether with parents, or professionals. There are also plenty of opportunities for families to explore, learn or celebrate together.
