November 1, 2010 saw the re-opening of The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, one of Barbados’ most cherished and prestigious oceanfront resorts, following a two-month renovation program designed to enhance its already unique and unrivalled beachfront presence.
Set amidst eleven acres of lush tropical gardens, this elegant and understated colonial-style resort will debut a new category of room – 24 spacious 900 square-foot Beachfront Junior Suites with private terraces, perfect for moonlit dining “à deux” overlooking the ocean. Serviced by experienced butlers dedicated to providing the ultimate in personalized care, these latest additions will join the existing inventory of 48 Oceanfront Deluxe guestrooms.
The architecture and interior design of these new suites reflect the rich heritage of the island, taking inspiration from a typical Barbadian plantation house, with soft serene hues complementing the rich walnut tones of the traditional furnishings. The subtle interior textures are contrasted by deeper toned accents with a choice of seating areas from which to enjoy the view – both inside and out on the private terraces. Original commissioned artwork is displayed throughout the suites and all feature complimentary Wi-Fi, 42” flat screened TVs with satellite channels and a media panel with a DVD/CD player.
Guests booking a junior suite will also benefit from an airport fast track service, being personally escorted through the diplomatic area in immigration and customs, personalized check-in and check-out, a dedicated butler service, daily in-room amenities and delicious complimentary evening canapés.
During high season, the resort is primarily couples-orientated but throughout the summer months of April to October, children of all ages are invited to join their parents when the hotel offers complimentary daily children’s activities. A wide range of complimentary non-motorized water sports are offered, including snorkelling, wakeboarding, water-skiing, sunfish sailing and kayaking. For spa aficionados, holistic spa treatments and massages are offered in the comfort and privacy of your guestroom.
Room rates for two people sharing a double or twin Oceanfront Deluxe start at USD $480 with Beachfront Junior Suites starting at USD $700, excluding taxes.
