My wife and our four kids, ages ranging 8 to 24, spent two weeks during the 2011 year-end holidays at Saint Peter´s Bay. I am an old-timer in Barbados, regularly visiting the Island for the last twelve years. I hesitate to share our passion for Barbados, our love of the scenery and the people, because it is one of the best-kept secrets of the Caribbean and will hate to see it follow the path of other long-gone marvels such as Jamaica. But the ¨Bajans¨, as they are popularly know, do a great job in protecting and defending their paradise from cheap and obnoxious tourism. This is not an all-you-can-eat Cancun experience. Barbados is beautiful, sophisticated, interesting, diverse, and a natural wonder. As you can imagine, during my decade-plus love affair with Barbados I have stayed in many of the ranking and best accommodations on the Island, hence I thought I knew it all. How naïve. By chance I learned of Saint Peter´s Bay. I will never stay with my family anywhere else again. The location is spectacular. The beach and the water are quintessential Barbados: white sand, clear and warm water, soft waves, and all the shades of blue. The compound is set in a way that guarantees everyone sea views and real privacy, meaning you can contemplate dawn in your pajamas without bothering or been bothered. The apartments –we rented two interconnected three-bedroom units with top-of-the-line hot tubs, are stupendously decorated in a very comfortable, classy and sober manner. The kitchen has everything a serious chef would ever need, by the way my wife is a culinary expert, so she knows what she is talking about. The location is perfect, just a short drive –even walking distance- to all the essentials. In addition, the St Peter´s offers a permanent private water-taxi service that is literally like having your own boat to take wherever you want to go. The staff is extremely courteous, knowledgeable, friendly but at the same time respectful and impeccable in their service. And their concierge service can get you a reservation at the hottest restaurant or have meals deliver to you. For them everything is possible. Saint Peter´s Bay is not for everyone. If you are looking for the same hotel experience you are used too, won´t find it here. If you want the luxury and privacy of your own home at the beach, with all what a great hotel has to offer, this is your place, no doubt.
