The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, St. James, Barbados

On the eastern edge of the Caribbean Sea exists a place of enchantment. A magical oasis of luxury where the sand is white and pink, the sea and sky cornflower blue, the people warm and friendly and the hospitality fit for sophisticated travellers. Fairmont Royal Pavilion has been described as ‘Timeless Luxury on the Beach’ – an elegant retreat where you can golf exclusive courses, play tennis, snorkel, sail, water ski and revel in the sun. A sanctuary of luxury and tranquillity beneath gently swaying palm trees, Fairmont Royal Pavilion blends old-world grace and stunning scenery – a place where you can make memories that last a lifetime.

A multi-million dollar refurbishment has taken place at Fairmont Royal Pavilion in which the much-loved colonial-style architecture has been preserved whilst a cool, contemporary beach-inspired design celebrating Bajan lifestyle and culture has been introduced. There are 72 new guest rooms and suites with interconnecting configurations for families, as well as one Villa – a secluded three-bedroom villa within the gardens just steps from the resort pool and beachfront.
