The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Saint James

Some vacations you want to be action-packed and adventurous, and some you simply want to hideaway somewhere truly fabulous and indulge in the ultimate luxury of wasting away days by the beach. If you’re after the latter this is the right spot. With spectacular ocean views, world-class restaurants and stunning lodgings, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion is the ideal place to escape the mundane and spend quality beach (or pool) time with your loved ones. Those looking for a touch of action won’t be disappointed either, with water sports on offer at the beachfront location – non-motorised, of course, to keep the environment truly tranquil.


Home in the charming surroundings of Saint James parish, this five-star boutique hotel is in the ideal spot for guests wanting to hideaway in luxury, but still be close enough to visit the sites and embrace the local customs and people. Just a short drive from the capital city of Bridgetown and only half a mile from the nearest shopping location in Holetown, you’re perfectly located for a day of exploring.

Your Room

Guests can choose from a room, suite or villa, and all are truly luxurious. In our minds, however, it’s hard to go past the privacy and indulgence of a villa. Hidden away in the lush tropical gardens the three villa rooms can even be combined to form a spacious multi-room lodging for a family or group, with a sitting area on the ground floor. The two ground floor rooms have gorgeous garden views, while the bedroom on the second floor has breathtaking ocean views from the balcony.

Why We Like It

Love is in the air in Barbados, everywhere you look around, but unlike an outdated pop song, The Fairmont offers stylish and fresh ways to spend a romantic vacation. Indulge yourself and your partner with a phenomenal new-age spa treatment, or get pampered at the world-class salon for a dinner date.  Once you step out onto the deck overlooking the glittering, turquoise Caribbean Sea, however, it’s hard not to feel truly, madly, deeply in love – if only, for the Caribbean.
