INTRODUCING COBBLERS COVE, BARBADOS
The new look Cobblers Cove is the Caribbean at its very best.
Located on the calm west coast of the island, with a beachfront location and stunning views, the family-owned hotel centres around a unique and historic plantation-era beach-side weekend retreat and embodies British elegance with Caribbean charm. This summer, the iconic hotel – which is near-completion of a 5 year renovation project – is partnering with British design studio, Soane Britain. This is the first partnership of its kind for Soane Britain who will be furnishing key areas of the hotel, completing its transformation into the chicest destination in the Caribbean. Claiming one-quarter mile of white sand beach in a quiet cove, the boutique hotel is encompassed by a coral stone wall and three acres of lush tropical gardens. The powder pink interiors with their pretty white woodwork are complemented inside with elegant shades of blue, pink and green, hand printed linens and island made rattan furniture. The 40 suites are spread among nine two-storey cottages set in the gardens surrounding the original house. Spacious sitting rooms open on to a terrace with views over the gardens or the sea. The Camelot and Colleton suites offer the height of quintessential Caribbean luxury, with marble floors, four-poster beds. Renowned for its island-inspired dishes that cleverly reflect the changing seasons, the award-winning Camelot Restaurant is overseen by local Bajan Chef Jason Joseph and serves the finest food in Barbados. The hotel also offers an array of activities including paddle boarding, tennis, gym, sailing, kayaking, yoga, water skiing and snorkelling, as well as heritage tours or garden tours both led by the National Trust or guided hiking tours. www.cobblerscove.com
