Spotlight on Colony Club By Elegant Hotels


Featured Destinations

Caribbean and Mexico Barbados

Colony Club by Elegant Hotels is set in lush tropical gardens on the finest stretch of Barbados’ Platinum West Coast, and seamlessly blends old world charm with chic elegance. Converted from a former private member’s club, with soaring palm trees and lagoon-style pools and a sophisticated ambiance, Colony Club is well known for its relaxing atmosphere appealing to guests who enjoy healthy eating, unique amenities, and togetherness. From savory dining and sun-swept beaches to relaxing poolside activities, each guest is guaranteed to find a personal retreat and memorable moment to call their own.

Your Own Personal Retreat

Colony Club's luxury hotel rooms stand in one of the most idyllic locations in Barbados and you can relax in the tropical splendor of a Colonial-inspired club. Take in the essence of the Caribbean as rooms and suites are dotted amongst the gardens and all feature a private balcony or terrace, offering pool, garden or ocean views. Cool white walls and tiled floors contrast with the fine mahogany finishes that give the rooms a classic yet contemporary ‘colonial’ style and the spacious bathrooms with coral stone renderings evoking the air of a grand hotel polished with fine island style.

A Taste of Elegance

Sitting on seven acres of lushly landscaped oceanfront, you will be spoiled for choice with a range of award winning dining options available where you can enjoy meals and unwind with signature drinks and sundowners. Begin the day with a complimentary full breakfast and The Sunset Deck serves lunch and dinner, offering a selection of seafood, pastas, fresh garden salads, wraps, sandwiches, vegetarian and gluten free meals. Make sure you also visit the open-air setting of the Laguna Restaurant, with other options available at sister properties through the Taste of Elegance Dine Around Programme. Colony Club is also known for the unmissable weekly themed dining nights taking you on an exceptional culinary journey from lobster, seafood, steaks plus a fresh market night, all served under the stars with the sweet sounds of local entertainment.

Endless Activities

There are endless activities and adventures to be had at Colony Club, with an assortment of activities and excursions both on water and land to please guests of all ages. While many Caribbean resorts offer complimentary non-motorised water sports, Colony Club goes even further and also includes motorised activities such as water skiing and tubing, as well as sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding and banana boat rides. There is also a complimentary Fitness Centre where you can take part in kickboxing, yoga, Zumba or a Pilates class or alternatively, the floodlit tennis courts are waiting with a tennis coach on hand who provides complimentary coaching (seasonal).
