The Sandpiper, Barbados

Discreetly one of the most exclusive small hotels in the West Indies. Sandpiper sits on a beautiful sandy beach, gently lapped by turquoise waters and bordered by a tree shaded wooden deck, embraced by seven acres of lush gardens of tropical flora.

Forty-seven rooms and suites are situated in the landscaped gardens leading from the sea. Much of The Sandpiper's charm and style are attributed to a meticulous attention to detail without sacrificing the relaxed manner of the Caribbean.
