Mediterranean design meets the Caribbean beach at this romantic and intimate adults-only hideaway on Barbados's southern coast
It’d be easy to while away an afternoon debating whether the pool or the sea is a more beautiful turquoise, but why bother? They’re both sufficiently alluring that you might spend your entire holiday going from one to the other and back again. Little Arches, a small boutique hotel with a Mediterranean feel, is just across the road from the white sands of Enterprise Beach (locals refer to it as “Miami Beach”), one of Barbados’ hidden secrets and blissfully free of tourists. When you’re not sunning yourself by the water, the cool Italian terracotta floors and four-poster beds of the hotel’s ten airy rooms will beckon; if you’re splashing out, consider the Luxury Ocean Suite, which has a private terrace with its own plunge pool. The ambience, with mosaics, archways, and tropical flowers, is intimate and the staff are warm and welcoming. The restaurant is on the roof and makes an excellent spot for a sunset cocktail, and while the mini-spa, tucked away in the garden is tiny, you can get massages or facials in your room, or even—why not?—on the pool deck.
In the Area
Little Arches sits on the southern coast of Barbados at the edge of a fishing village. Oistins has a popular Friday night fish fry that includes live music, stalls selling handicrafts, and heaping plates of swordfish, tuna, and mahi-mahi cooked to order. It’s an easy walk from the hotel. Other nearby activities include yachting, mountain biking and tennis, and the hotel can help arrange boat charters for scuba diving or simply cruising the waters of the Caribbean. The Barbados Golf Club is two miles away, while Bridgetown, the island’s capital, is a seven-mile drive; there you’ll find a wider variety of shops and restaurants as well as some beautiful colonial architecture.
How to Get There
This was our first visit to Little Arches & most certainly will not be our last !
Loved everything about it , amazing location with stunning views , beautiful beach on it’s doorstep & dedicated staff who were all so friendly & nothing was too much trouble - they were all such a credit to this beautiful Hotel .
My only grumble - 10 days was not enough & didn’t want to leave !
I have been to Barbados many times and always walked by dreaming one day I would get married at Little Arches cliff and stay in one of their deluxe ocean front rooms with plunge pool. Well we finally did this end of September 2019 and it was beyond what my dreams entailed. All the hotel team members throughout my stay and especially Emma, the coordinator for my event, were incredibly nice and ensured our stay was nothing less than perfect. I don’t think I will ever come to Barbados again without staying at least a few days in this little slice of heaven.
We stayed at Little Arches for 10 days at the end of Sep. The room Luxury Ocean Suite with private plunge pool was excellent always kept clean by the friendly and polite staff - we had a private pool that was perfect on the days and regularly kept clean. The food in Cafe Luna was always excellent and the staff very friendly -overall an excellent and relaxing stay - thanks Sandra, Amy and all the staff DP & LP
