Combining signature modern luxury and the charming character of the Caribbean, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion is a Barbados hotel property unlike other. On an island already known for its pristine beaches and crystal clear waters, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion, located on the Caribbean Sea side of Barbados, remains the island's only luxury hotel directly on the beach. Though recently renovated in 2017, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion has maintained its colonial style architecture — and added a few other modern touches. Influenced by local artists and culture, the 72 newly refurbished guest rooms and specialty suites reflect the best of the Bajan lifestyle. Throughout the hotel property, guests can partake in regional delicacies, live music renditions and take in work handpicked (and handcrafted) by local artists, allowing everyone to feel truly at home on this magical isle.

With the ocean's close proximity and nearly one full mile of exclusive play space comes a plethora water sports: kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, hobie wave sailboats, windsurfing and even sea floats. (Photo courtesy Fairmont Hotels & Resorts)
While it can be hard to tear yourself from the beach, the hotel also offers a freshwater pool and heated jacuzzi adjacent to green gardens, white gazebos and palm trees. Even from the comfort of a poolside lounge chair, the ocean waves can be heard. (Photo courtesy of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts)
Both the Palm Terrace Restaurant and the Taboras Restaurant offer sweeping views of the ocean and world-class dining experiences. Each takes a unique approach to dining as well: the Palm Terrace highlights signature flavors of the island, while Tabaros has a more romantic appeal and serves up a variety of local and international dishes.
