Waves Hotel and Spa Barbados overlooks the lovely deep sand beach of Prospect Bay, set upon the St. James coast. The hotel enjoys an enviable position, as no other hotels share the beach, leaving you in peace to relax and explore.
On the beach, you will be able to lose yourself in either the sea or the sand, with the offshore swimming deck, sun chairs, kayaks, snorkelling, sailing, beach volleyball, windsurfing, sunset meditation, and more. Even if you would prefer to read your book and leave the sports to the others, we know it will still be thirsty work, so you will always be able to get a drink or two at the Rum Shack.
The hotel's Adults Only Spa is just across the road from the hotel and is open to all who stay at Waves Hotel Barbados, for either meals or relaxation. The Spa area also features a Pool Room, The After Hours Bar, and a beautiful Garden Restaurant. All rooms overlook the free-form swimming pool and sundeck, which leads onto the Jumbo whirl pool, where you are free to relax, soak up the sun and indulge your senses.
The hotel is 10 minutes north of buzzing Bridgetown, so you are never far away from retail therapy. You can order at taxi or hop on one of the many buses, for speedy delivery to rest of the island.
