Photos of Little Arches Boutique Hotel
There are just 10 rooms, each individually decorated with a Mediterranean style featuring tiled floors, handcrafted pottery basins and a splash of Caribbean color.
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 minute's 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 offshore 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 alfresco dining with panoramic views of the sea. Specializing in fusion Caribbean Asian and Mediterranean flavors, this foodie’s paradise has won numerous awards and is a firm favorite 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 underprivileged 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 www.packforapurpose.org to find a list of the specific needs requested by the projects that Little Arches supports.
The hotel is 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.
Little Arches does not have a dive center on site but there are numerous dive operators on the island and the hotel will be happy to guide you on the best option for your requirements.
The hotel's mini spa is nestled in a private, peaceful corner of the tropical gardens. A variety of treatments are offered, including Hawaiian and Swedish massages, Indian head massages, aromatherapy, couples’ massages, manicures and pedicures. These can be enjoyed at the spa itself or in the comfort of your room. You can also join a sunrise or sunset yoga and stretching session on the beach, which is a wonderful way to start or end a day.
