Originally a luxurious private house, beautiful Coral Reef Club has been in the loving care of the O'Hare family for two generations. Today, under their impeccable stewardship, it preserves a distinctive charm and sense of genuine hospitality that harks back to the very best traditions of Barbados luxury hotel-keeping. Lying amid 12 acres of manicured tropical gardens, beside a white-sand St James coast beach, its mellow colonial-style coral-stone cottages and buildings are delightfully enhanced by shuttered windows and wooden balustrade. Reflecting the gentle mood of an elegant and sophisticated retreat, Coral Reef will appeal particularly to those guests who appreciate a quieter and slightly understated setting - designed above all to promote a sense of total relaxation, comfort and well-being. Gentle though the pace is, you'll still be able to enjoy complimentary on-site water sports - and nightly entertainment during the winter season (3-4 evenings weekly in summer).
