The House in Barbados gets refurb

The House, one of Barbados’ premier West Coast hotels, has completed a five-month refurbishment including a fresh look in the guestrooms and bathrooms.

The boutique, adults-only, 34-suite hotel will showcase contemporary interior designs, as well as new room decor complete with local handcrafted Bajan artwork.

These intricate developments, along with the introduction of a new one-bedroom suites concept and the hotel’s 24-hour Ambassador Programme, are designed to ensure that guests will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere capturing the essence of the Caribbean lifestyle and creating a “home away from home” environment.

The relaxed residential feel of The House, already a key draw in the hotel’s public areas, will be extended to each of the bedrooms with an emphasis on the customized wooden furniture, new seating areas and French doors opening out to breath-taking ocean views from spacious balconies.

All bathrooms will be refreshed with new granite surfaces, makeup mirrors, indulgent rainfall showers and state-of-the-art shower jets. Soft lighting throughout the property will enhance its cozy ambience and tranquillity, offering guests an intimate and private haven during their stay on the stunning island of Barbados.


The spacious new one-bedroom suites are 689 square feet and offer another level of luxury for guests.

Guests who book a one-bedroom suite will enjoy added extras including VIP meet and greet airport service, private transfer to the hotel, upgraded bathroom amenities and an extended one-hour luxurious jet lag massage. Nespresso™ machines will also be featured in all one-bedroom suites, allowing guests to have a fabulous first morning coffee in bed.

Guests at The House can look forward to the very best body and soul treatments. Upon arrival, every guest at The House can immediately relax with a complimentary jet lag revival massage in a beach cabana or in the comfort of their room, before enjoying complimentary canapes and a reviving afternoon tea.

There are plenty of other pampering options at The House.  Guests can request to have treatments in their room and in the luxury beach cabanas, or can indulge in the spa at The House’s sister property and next-door neighbor, Tamarind. 

The Tamarind Spa offers exclusive treatments developed by pioneering spa company O SPA London, and offers a selection of treatments including a couples Four Hands Suga Suga Lomi Lomi Massage, during which two therapists massage, knead and relax bodies with specialist techniques featuring exotic cowrie shells and synchronized movements. Another soothing treatment is the signature Royal Bajan Ritual Body Treatment, a full body polish using local organic raw sugar, cowrie shells, a master blend of nourishing and protective anti-oxidants, and local coconut oils.

For those wishing to trim and tone, the fitness center at The House has a range of Cybex cardio and weight equipment. There is also a selection of fitness classes available at Tamarind.  In addition, guests can book personal training sessions with certified trainers to help them achieve their fitness goals either on the beach or in the gym.
