With its indigenous heritage and colonial roots, Barbados is one of the most diverse and developed islands in the Caribbean. Dive right in with this week's Escape to Ocean 15 Hotel in Oistins, Barbados.
Cruise into a Superior Studio for either a three- ($265) or five-night stay ($412) for one person. Or, bring along a guest for three ($340) or five nights ($507) for two people. In addition to a spacious layout and poolside location, your condo-style accommodations include a full kitchen, private balcony or terrace, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
This recently built hotel is located along the southern portion of the island on the premiere St. Lawrence Gap, minutes from the pristine waters of Dover Beach. Each morning, rise and shine to included breakfast for each person. Later, you'll board an included five-hour lunch cruise from Tiami Catamaran Cruises. After diving and snorkeling among schools of marine life, enjoy a buffet lunch of delectable local dishes and wash it all down at a full open bar.
Barbados has more to offer than sea and sand. You can hike along limestone hills, stroll through stunning botanical gardens, or tour the Mount Gay Rum Factory. The south coast ripples with calypso beats and bars, as well as lime, a Bajan street party. On Fridays, the Oistins Fish Fry is a must-see dining festival. After selecting among the freshly caught seafood—think tuna, swordfish, marlin, and lobster—you'll bob along to live music and sip local brews while your meal is prepared before your eyes.
As daylight begins to ebb, coast back to the hotel for dinner at the Poolside Bar and Restaurant, operated by award-winning Chef Janelle Crawford, for a nightcap under the stars.
You'll be rolling in the deep at this Caribbean paradise. Catch the wave while you can.
