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!
