10 Reasons to Stay at The House by Elegant Hotels

Romantics need look no further. In this blog Travel Seen showcases the ten reasons we think The House by Elegant Hotels in Barbados is perfect for two…

Little wonder The House by Elegant Hotels is a Travel Seen best-seller as it ticks all the boxes for a luxurious Caribbean beach holiday.

Want to know more? Here are our ten reasons we think The House so special for its lucky guests…

1. Adult-only Hotel

Whether it’s a honeymoon, girls’ getaway, retirement celebration or just because, The House by Elegant Hotels is the island’s premier choice for adults only.

The atmosphere that has been created at this hotel close to St James is sophisticated and serene, where first-class service and included indulgences create the perfect environment for over-18’s.

2. Free Luxuries

The House by Elegant Hotels is all-inclusive, which is a great option for guests seeking to stick to a budget on their Barbados holiday.

But as with all of the luxury hotels from this group you can expect lots of little extras as standard too. There’s the complimentary champagne breakfast; free WiFi; a water taxi that will take you to other Elegant Hotels on the West Coast; pre-dinner canapés and afternoon tea every day; and a ‘Jet Lag Revival Massage’ to get your holiday off to a relaxing start.

3. Great for Golfers

Did you know that Barbados has some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean? And The House has dedicated golf partners so its guests can make the most of the glorious greens. Transportation, refreshments and equipment can all be arranged by the Concierge team, and if you happen to be staying during the yearly golf tournament there’s the opportunity to get competitive on the fairways too.

4. Ambassador Service

Ask anyone who has stayed at The House and they’ll tell you that what really sets it apart is the service.

Here the focus is on a personalised experience for guests, with ‘Ambassador Service’ around the clock. These holiday PAs are on hand to unpack your bags; reserve tables and book activities; and generally see to your every whim!

5. Beachfront Location

Boasting a prime position on the Platinum West Coast of the island, The House by Elegant Hotels is close to the town of St James and just a 35 minute transfer by car from the international airport.

There’s plenty to see and do in St James when you can bear to tear yourself away from the beach with its calm, warm waters, pristine sands and prime location for sunset views.

6. Boutique Spa

As with everything at the hotel, the spa has a boutique feel which gives it an intimate, personalised atmosphere.

There are just two treatment rooms, one of which is for couples, and everything is guided by the Five Elements theory.  Award-winning and 100% natural, Elemental Herbology products are used in the treatments, and feature the spa’s very own bespoke essential oil.

7. In-room Details

All Elegant Hotels on the West Coast of Barbados have a choice of rooms to pick from depending on your needs and budget. At The House you can expect as standard across all room and suite categories: a view of the ocean or gardens, plush linens, a television, air con, free WiFi, an espresso machine and the signature 24/7 Ambassador Service.

8. Dining Choice

The all-inclusive dining at The House offers great variety, with plenty of inclusions like afternoon tea, champagne breakfasts and early-evening canapés.

But a real stand out feature of the all-inclusive at this Barbados hotel is the variety of places you can choose to have your meals. Grab a seat in the lobby lounge for dinner, or lunch on the oceanfront deck. Have afternoon tea in a private beach cabana or breakfast in your suite. What’s more, all-day and moonlight menus are available along with the 24-hour room service.

9. Complimentary Watersports

So often when a hotel says that watersports are included it means a very limited choice of non-motorized activities. But not at The House. Complimentary motorized and non-motorized watersports at the Aqua School include waterskiing, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkelling (where you might see turtles!), kayaking, tube rides and Hobie Cat sailing.

10. Bespoke Activities

Also included in your stay is a selection of activities such as cooking demonstrations with a chef, as well as guided yoga classes. The hotel puts on events, like meeting local artists, and has a Friday night shuttle to Oistins for the not-to-be-missed weekly fish fry. Here there is live music and authentic dishes to sample. Definitely an experience to tick from your Barbados Bucket List.

We hope that’s given you a flavour of what to expect on an all-inclusive, adult-only holiday to The House by Elegant Hotels in Barbados, Caribbean. Why not give the Travel Seen team a call for a bespoke price and see what offers they can secure for you today?
