Elegant Hotels Group, Barbados’ largest hotel owner, welcomed its first guests at Treasure Beach on December 17, 2017 following a $10.5 million renovation. Situated on the sparkling west coast of the island, Treasure Beach joins existing Elegant properties, including Tamarind and The House, as well as award-winning Italian restaurant Daphne’s in the St. James Parish.
The adults-only beachfront property consists of 35 renovated, one-bedroom suites, set in lush, tropical gardens that feature stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. The newly redesigned suites, which include impeccable details such as coral stone walls, all boast private balconies with garden, pool or ocean views, complete with vaulted ceilings and private plunge pools.
An artistic and culinary haven designed for discerning travelers, Treasure Beach will feature contemporary artwork by local and global artists. Tapestry, the on-property restaurant offers globally inspired dining and an open-kitchen concept where guests can watch their dishes being brought to life. The restaurant’s versatile dinner menu and theme nights will vary, allowing guests to indulge in the award-winning chef’s latest creations.
Guests are invited to enjoy quality wines and mixology events in the intimate Wine Cellar or relax al-fresco with a selection of cocktails at the stylish Batik Bar, which will include a complimentary drink at sunset.
As with all Elegant Hotels properties, complimentary water sports and beach and pool ambassador service are included in each stay. Guests at Treasure Beach can experience a range of locally inspired activities and excursions, from an afternoon tea sampling, to hands-on pastry making classes. Aspiring artists are invited to meet with a local artisan or embark on the Treasure Art Crawl where they can explore creative hubs, such as the Caribbean Gallery of Art and the Pelican Craft Village.
Elegant Hotels Group owns and operates seven of the finest hotels and resorts on the Caribbean island of Barbados. Set on the most desirable of the island’s legendary beaches on the west and south coasts, each hotel features unique attributes and a distinctive personality. Together, they offer styles to suit every taste, from classic to contemporary, family-friendly to adults-only, soft adventure to wellness, and traditional to all-inclusive. The hotels share a commitment to superb service and fine culinary experiences and provide the ultimate beach and water sports environment for their guests, including the Elegant “Beach Ambassadors” program. The company offers upscale accommodations that remain welcoming and unpretentious, or “elegance with a twist,” – a casual elegance that embodies the best of Barbados. Elegant Hotels includes The House, Colony Club, Tamarind and Treasure Beach, as well as three all-inclusives Crystal Cove, Turtle Beach and the newest of the properties, Waves Hotel & Spa. The group also includes the acclaimed Daphne’s restaurant on Barbados’ west coast – sister to Daphne’s restaurant in London. In March 2017, the company also signed a marketing agreement with The Landings Resort & Spa in St. Lucia. Set on the sands of Rodney Bay, the property features expansive oceanfront villas, a spa, private marina and signature Elegant inclusions. Finally, Hodges Bay Resort & Spa is the newest property to join the Elegant Hotels collection. Situated on the north coast of Antigua, Hodges Bay Resort & Spa will open in July 2018 and offer guests a range of luxury accommodation including suites and villas.
