Our rating: First Class

Rooms

All 72 Beachfront suites and Oceanfront rooms have chic Barbadian beach house vibes, with soothing cream and white décor, sleek floors, smart marble bathrooms with a walk-in shower and tub and sea views. Robes and tea and coffee making facilities are standard. All rooms on the upper floors have large balconies with a circular daybed, while suites, on the ground floor, have expansive wooden decks with sun loungers, that are just feet from the sand with most rooms offering interconnecting rooms for families. 

The Luxury Oceanfront rooms are located directly above the beach, offering ocean views on the second floor and feature a glass-fronted balcony complete with sun loungers. 

The Signature Oceanfront rooms are located directly above the beach on the third floor with a furnished deck and outdoor living space directly overlooking the beach. 

The Beachfront suite features direct beach access with a private 23 sq m (250 sq ft) furnished deck and outdoor living space directly overlooking the beach. 

Location

Situated on the west coast of Barbados, on the beautiful St. James Beach, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion is surrounded by beautiful tropical landscapes with uninterrupted views of the Caribbean Sea. The hotel is a 45-minute drive from the airport and a short distance from the capital, Bridgetown. Luxury beaches surround the area, including St James Beach right on your doorstep and Alleynes Bay, lined with lush palm trees and white sand, and filled with restaurants and beach bars.

Food and drink

There are three beachfront restaurants offering a fusion of Caribbean cuisine and international dishes. The Palm Terrace is the more upscale open-air setting, where you’ll dine on locally inspired dishes while taking in sea views through lofty arches. The pillared and open-sided Taboras bar and restaurant offers more of a casual ambience. Here, you can unwind and enjoy a cocktail from the restaurant or terrace seating area. Theme nights are often on the menu, including a local Bajan buffet along with steak and lobster nights. Try delicacies such as Bajan spiced fried chicken or Creole style shrimp, followed by banana doughnuts or frozen coconut parfait. For light bites and refreshments, head to Beach Club or enjoy signature cocktails and fine wines in both restaurant bars.

Families

Families are welcome year-round, though the atmosphere is quite grown up. There is no kids' club, but some supervised activities are available for children in the school holiday periods, ranging from treasure hunts and races to sandcastle building. Older children can try activities at the water sports facility or enjoy beach cricket, Bajan games and movie nights.

Facilities and activities

Near the pool are two floodlit tennis courts and the stunning beachfront. Here, you can participate in a range of complimentary, non-motorised water sports such as kayaking, snorkeling, sail boating and paddle boarding. The hotel has a spa along with a fitness facility that has a selection of free-weights, treadmills, and elliptical machines.

Fairmont Royal Pavilion is a sophisticated and luxurious hotel with breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea.
