With the tropical surroundings, gorgeous scenery and relaxed atmosphere, it’s easy to fall in love with Barbados. Spend some time at Cobblers Cove, however, and you’ll find it hard to imagine leaving. The resort marries together every luxury you could daydream about. There’s a sun-drenched deck overlooking the beach, a luxurious pool and a garden; perfect for lazy afternoons. Established in the late 1960’s, the gardens are renowned throughout the Caribbean for their diversity of plant species. A quick stroll around the property and you’re bound to uncover several species of birds, a pair of mongoose and a playful family of monkeys. Not to mention the beachfront location from which you could try winding surfing, snorkelling or even swimming with the turtles.
The drive from the airport takes less than 45 minutes and following a picturesque route, winding through beautiful Barbados Scenery, the journey will fly by. The beach at Cobblers Cove stretches up the desirable west coast towards Speightstown with this historic town an easy stroll away for those looking to explore.
The suites at Cobblers Cove are a lesson in relaxed elegance. With a separate sitting room, reclining lounges on a private terrace or balcony, spectacular views, and a mini bar stocked to your tastes, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave. When it comes time to get some shut eye, choose your preferred pillow from the menu and snuggle into one of the luxurious robes.
Why we like it
Cobblers Cove gives you the chance to slow down the pace and enjoy some serious rest and relaxation, in the most gracious of country house settings – with a mesmerising ocean view thrown in for good measure. Dining at the relaxed yet refined Camelot Restaurant with its award-winning food is a moment to be savoured. Don’t fear if you’ve forgotten to pack anything either, as the hotel’s Salt Whistle Boutique stocks a variety of clothing to keep you covered from the beach to the bar.
