Radisson Aquatica Resort

TripAdvisor reviewers really rate the Radisson Aquatica Resort. It’s located right on a white-as-snow beach and comes with a suntrap pool.

The swimming pool is set on a raised deck, so you get great views of the waves. There’s also a laid-back bar by the beach that serves tropical cocktails and has a daily happy hour.

The hotel also has a choice of restaurants. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, ask about arranging a dining table down on the sand.

Overview of Hastings

The golden shores draw tourists to Barbados. The island may only be small, but there’s still more than 90 kilometres of beautiful coastline to explore. As hotels like the Radisson Aquatica Resort sit right on the coast, it couldn’t be easier to get out and experience the beautiful sands.

It’s not all about lazy days on the coast in Barbados, though. You can sing and dance the night away with the locals, spend your days sampling fusion cuisine and enjoy a relaxing afternoon touring a rum distillery. Barbados is a real island retreat and you’ll fall in love with the slow-paced lifestyle and culture on your holiday to the Caribbean.

Things to do in Barbados

The long, sandy beach is directly outside the Radisson Aquatica Resort. It comes with sunloungers that line the sand and waters that look purpose-made for snorkelling.

When you feel like exploring Barbados, Bridgetown is only a five-minute drive away. As the capital of the island, Bridgetown is overflowing with places to shop, absorb the culture and enjoy the local cuisine. Colonial architecture lines the streets and the city’s even been designated as a Unesco World Heritage Site. For a more relaxed day, you can tour the Mount Gay Rum Distillery.

With a platinum coastline, palm-dotted sands and gallons of rum, Barbados is the perfect place for a sun-drenched island holiday in the sunshine.
