Sandy Lane Hotel is set on the Caribbean Sea next to a tranquil coral sandy shore with mature mahogany trees shading areas between the hotel and the beach. The Resort is located close to St James on the Platinum Coast, on the mid-west coast, just 45 minutes from Grantley Adams airport Bridgetown.

Sandy Lane Hotel possesses classic elegance with Palladian buildings and spacious comfort across the 114 rooms and suites including The Villa. The venue is the preferred choice for discerning travellers across the world and is undoubtedly the premier address in the Caribbean.

The superlatives describing this luxurious haven on the west coast of Barbados just roll off the tongue. Sandy Lane Hotel issimply the best known and most prestigious boutique Golf and Beach Resort on the Planet.

It has stood the test of time now, having been around for 60 years, since its inception in 1961 by Ronald Tree, a British Politician who fell in love with the land where the resort was first created. Formerly, the land was a Sugar Plantation.

Sandy Lane Hotel was at one point owned by Trust House Forte, but in 1998 was purchased by renowned businessmen Dermot Desmond and JP McManus, who closed the resort and demolished the original structure and rebuilt the hotel to the most exacting of standards. The Resort reopened on St Patrick’s Day 2001 with the objective of raising the bar in every aspect, not just the hotel and its services but also the golf courses, their aim was to “elevate hotel luxury to a whole new level”, there is no doubt that this has been precisely what they have achieved since 2001 and it is the one place every discerning golfer across the world would love to try at least once.

Stay at the Sandy Lane Hotel just once and your expectations when you visit other properties in other destinations will be raised to a brand-new level, it is probable that nothing else will match what you experienced that time in Barbados.

The luxurious rooms, the wonderful terraces, the Beach, the Spa and the Golfing facilities all excel to the same degree. The service too is unrivalled, and you will be astounded by the cuisine especially at Bajan Blue and L’Acajou or enjoy a long lunch at the Country Club Restaurant. The 45 holes of golf are splendid, all designed by the genius Tom Fazio who has carved many great holes across very contrasting pieces of terrain at The Green Monkey, The Country Club and The Old Nine. The Green Monkey is the most exclusive golf course in the entire Caribbean, it only opens up for 1 hour of tee times per day!

      26 Orchid Rooms Located in the Orchid Wing

      This is a superb lead in category as the rooms are not just luxurious but also very spacious at 72 square metres, which is big by anyone’s standards. Balconies overlook flowers, gardens and trees, with the glimpse of the Caribbean potentially through the trees.

      10 Ocean Rooms Located in the Turtle Wing

      Slightly smaller than the Orchid rooms but in a superb location close to the beach, offering wonderful sea views of the Caribbean. The rooms are very close to the Crescent Beach and are 66 square metres. They overlook the clear, blue waters of the Caribbean Sea and are centrally located.

      60 Luxury Ocean Rooms Located in Seahorse & Dolphin Wings

      These are one step up from the Ocean Rooms and are 14 square metres larger at 80 square metres, so extremely spacious, with more expansive balconies. Located in the Seahorse and Dolphin Wings, they boast great views of the Caribbean Sea and wonderful sunsets too.

      06 Two-Bedroom Luxury Orchid Suites Located in the Orchid Wing

      Located in the Orchid Wing of the hotel in the gardens, this is a two bedroom and 2 bathroom option at 146 square metres with patio and balcony as well as a living room, with gorgeous views of fauna and gardens – it is very secluded.

      05 One-Bedroom Dolphin Suites & 3 Two-Bedroom Luxury Dolphin Suites Located in the Dolphin Wing

      The standard Dolphin Suite is a one-bedroom unit with living room and is extremely spacious at 134 square metres. Located in the Dolphin Wing. If you pick the Luxury option, the overall size is similar, and you still have the living room, but you have a second bedroom and the suite is 146 square metres in total size.

      02 Penthouse Suites Located in the Orchid Wing and The Villa at Sandy Lane

      Sandy Lane has a few outstanding top end accommodation units for the larger family, or party where price is not too relevant, these vary from the exquisite Penthouse Suites, the Sandy Lane Suite and the renowned VILLA AT SANDY LANE, which includes a Butler, Daily Golf, a Resident Chef and a beautiful garden setting with a pool and jacuzzi. This largest option has 5 stately bedrooms and is 678 square metres. Please ask us for more information on the Penthouse and Sandy Lane Suite options.

      The Country Club

      This is the principal course on the resort the one that you will play most of your golf. Designed by renowned architect Tom Fazio in 1999, it is an absolute gem, with sensational sea views of the Caribbean. It is highly manicured, parkland in style, with lots of contrasting and varied vegetation. The course has been designed around a total of 5 lakes, which is what creates a lot of the challenge and difficulty across all 18 holes. The course is 7,060 yards off the back tees and is a par of 72. A caddy fee of $50 on the included rounds is payable locally, but the buggy is indeed included.

      The Green Monkey

      This is the most exclusive golfing address in the Caribbean and one of the world’s most mysterious golf courses, simply because so few people are allowed to play it. The tee time sheets are only open for one hour every morning and only for Sandy Lane Residents. One is advised to pre-book their tee time on The Green Monkey, however, it is not a necessity, buggy is included but there is a caddy fee of $50. The golf course was designed by Tom Fazio in 1999 and the design has been carved through an old limestone quarry, with dramatic exposed rock faces on many holes, thus creating unbelievable scenery which is totally unique, there are many elevation changes and great drives from high positions, making it a very exhilarating challenge. On our packages advertised you can play The Green Monkey once. The Sandy Lane Hotel Resident fee to play The Green Monkey is $400.00.

      The Old Nine

      This is the best of the original 18 prior to the closure of the Estate in 1998, Tom Fazio put some finishing touches to it in 1999-2001 and it is now a very enjoyable part of the golfing experience at the Sandy Lane Hotel. Again, this course delivers a completely different ambience and experience as it meanders through the old Sandy Lane Estate, where the original Sugar Plantation was located. It is tree-lined and parkland style with tight fairways and small greens with some gorgeous par 3 holes. 3345 yards and par 36.

      The service, cleanliness and attention to detail were all first class, as was the food at both the main restaurants. As expected, everything was expensive. A glass of Prosecco was £18 as was a glass of basic red or white wine.

      We only played The Country Club 4 times out of 7 and played The Green Monkey an additional time. They gave us a credit for one of our 7 booking times on The Country Club but charged us for the additional round on The Green Monkey. Nothing appeared on our final statement so the chances are you may well have been debited. Whatever the situation is, please let me know if I owe you any money and I will obviously reimburse you by return.

      Both courses are very nice to play without being that difficult. The Green Monkey certainly has much more character having been carved out from old quarries but the main difference for us was that The Green Monkey is in outstanding condition with hardly a mark on the fairways, superb greens and just the 7 flights out in the morning. We played as a 2 ball each time on both courses and completed our rounds in around 3 to 3 1/4 hours. Same caddy, Peter, each time we played who was very helpful and made the rounds enjoyable. Both courses also have quite large greens, unfortunately not large enough for me to hit them too often!

      The room is nice and spacious overlooking the Caribbean Sea which is just 10 yards from our room. Food was excellent last night as was breakfast this morning. Definitely worth getting the dinner package as it is extortionately expensive. My steak alone last night would have been over US$100. Drinks obviously expensive but we knew that.
