Little Arches

Little Arches Boutique Hotel

This delightful little boutique hotel on the south coast of Barbados is located in a quiet residential area across the road from the white sands of Enterprise Beach.

Originally a private home it has just 10 rooms, each unique, and staff pride themselves on their personalised service. This family owned and operated hotel has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and a pretty Mediterranean style.

With a fabulous rooftop bar and restaurant, just perfect for sunsets over the Caribbean Sea, Little Arches gives a very different experience of Barbados from the large resorts the island is known for.

There are just 10 rooms, each individually decorated with a Mediterranean style featuring tiled floors, hand crafted pottery basins and a splash of Caribbean colour.

All rooms are air-conditioned and have king size bed, flat screen TV, iPod docking station, tea/coffee making facilities and mini-fridge. 


Little Arches is set in a quiet part of the south coast, just five minutes’ walk from the fishing village of Oistins, popular for its Friday night fish fry where the fishermen’s catch is cooked up and sold by local families from small stalls. It’s also only just over 10 minutes’ drive from the airport making arrivals and departures very convenient.

In Oistins you will find a supermarket, bank and a few local eateries and although the local area is beautifully quiet and feels more local than some of the more developed areas, the lively nightlife and dining area of St Lawrence Gap is just three miles from the hotel.

A minutes’ walk from the hotel is Enterprise Beach, known locally as Miami Beach, a small, pretty beach popular with locals.

Please note that there is an offloading facility for an oil tanker just off shore from the hotel and for about two days a week, the tanker will anchor there and will be seen from the hotel.

Food and drink

Café Luna is Little Arches’ fabulous rooftop restaurant, offering all day al-fresco dining with panoramic views of the sea. Specialising in fusion Caribbean Asian and Mediterranean flavours, this foodie’s paradise has won numerous awards and is a firm favourite with locals too.

The bar at Café Luna is also a popular spot; perfect for relaxing with a cocktail or two whilst enjoying the magnificent sunsets.


Little Arches only accept guests over 16 years of age.

Environmental and social responsibility

Little Arches supports the Variety Club of Barbados, aimed at supporting the necessary head start for children of under privileged backgrounds in Barbados. The hotel is also a proud member of the Pack for a Purpose charity initiative, an operation that provides current information on requested supplies by community-based projects around the globe. Visit to find a list of the specific needs requested by the projects that Little Arches supports.

Local excursions

The hotel are always happy to help plan any excursions and there’s certainly no shortage of places to visit on the island. They particularly recommend going to watch a polo match or a game of cricket, as well as visiting Harrison’s Caves and Andromeda Botanical Gardens.
