What We Love

  • Rocky cliffs, empty beaches and rolling countryside — the real Barbados
  • The hotel is intimate with only 10 rooms in all
  • Lovely “cottage chic” suites are large and stylish, with free WiFi
  • Watching fisherman in colorful wooden boats return with a fresh catch
  • Walking on the beaches, passing unusual rock formations — and barely another person

What To Know

  • There is three-night minimum for the One-Bedroom Suite
  • Swimming is only safe at low tide when shallow rock pools form; still, caution is required
  • Better for those looking to relax — there’s no nightlife
  • Ocean-facing rooms are filled with the sound of pummeling waves, which you’ll either find soothing or disturbing
  • Guests are asked not to swim in the outdoor pool after 6 p.m.
  • Unless they are advanced surfers, kids may feel restricted in terms of physical activities
  • The restaurant is on the pricey side and is quite popular; make a reservation

Stunning
Reviewed 1 week ago

Absolutley beautiful hotel, we stayed in the family annex type appartment slightly seperate from the hotel (1 minute away if that!) And it was amazing. Rooms, lounge area and furnishings stunning. Everything you may need in a self catering apartment! Restaurant lovely all staff friendly and welcoming. Would highly recomend this place!

Wonderful Wonderful
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

What a fantastic hotel overlooking the ocean. It’s an old colonial building and everything about it feels cool and classy. There is a lovely pool and a large outdoor restaurant, both looking over the ocean. The food is very good and the rum punches are spectacular! There weren’t many people staying (it’s off season) so we got a look at most of the rooms. We stayed in Cattlewash which we thought the best (though not the most expensive). It’s the only one with a separate living room and bedroom (both huge) and a large bathroom. It doesn’t face the ocean but the size and luxury more than make up for it. There is a nice 10 minute walk to the nearest village along the coastal path and if you walk up the hill from the hotel there is another nice hotel with restaurant and then an excellent local bar which serves good local food. Can’t fault anything and hope to go back sometime. We stayed 3 nights so didn’t need a car. Any longer then a car would be advisable.

Fantastic Hotel

We stayed here for 2 nights after our cruise. We had been to the Atlantic coast side of Barbados before, in passing, and wanted to check it out again. A fantastic hotel, wonderful room and excellent food. The staff were very attentive. I would highly recommend this hotel.

So relaxing!

We only stayed one night and it was so relaxing. The location is ideal. Beautiful moonrise and sunrise. We especially loved gathering sea glass on the beach while my husband surfed at soup bowls. The staff was friendly and hard working. Great breakfast buffet on Sunday morning. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay on the East Coast of Barbados.

An elegant boutique hotel with the best ocean views imaginable
Reviewed 6 months ago

If you are looking for timeless elegance, fine dining, service that surpasses expectations, and the bliss that remains after the mighty surf washes away all your cares, come to the Atlantis Historic Inn - at least for a delicious meal, better yet for a relaxing stay!

The hotel is a historic property, elegantly finished with abundant wood and stone, and is intimately size with only 7 hotel rooms in the main building (plus one cottage). The Atlantis offers a breathtaking view of Tent Bay, immediately adjacent to Bathsheba, in St. Joseph parish, on the east coast of Barbados. It is hard for me to imagine a more beautiful setting. From the dining area, or the lobby bar, you will surely gaze at length, as I did, at the coastal rock formations, the ocean at its wildest, and some brave fishers.

The view may compete for your attention, but do not neglect the bar or the restaurant, for the chef and other staff will not neglect you. The menu focuses on the Caribbean and includes a complete range of vegan options. Bathsheba and Tent Bay offer at least five other dining options, and I tried some of these, but the best food I had was at the Atlantis. Friday dinner was the perfect welcome to Barbados, Saturday breakfast deliciously fuelled a coastal hike, and the wonderful Sunday brunch was a highlight of my vacation. Everything was delicious, but the bread pudding for dessert was a revelation - and who would expect that of bread pudding?

For my hotel room, I chose coastal view rather than ocean view. I lucked out with one of the better views, and enjoyed the most stunning sunrise of my life. The suite itself was beautifully appointed, comfortable, and beyond spacious - it was just as impressive in person as on the hotel website. A kettle, in-room coffee, and a small fridge got my day off to a great start. Fine bed linens, plush towels, and bathrobes all contributed to a calm and restful stay. Wifi was excellent.

Service was a highlight: never obtrusive, but attentive. From one meal to the next, staff remembered not only where I liked to sit but even which way I liked to face. Everyone was friendly. The biggest surprise actually came after I left. As I was leaving the Atlantis, I mentioned that I was sad to leave and told them where I was heading next. When I arrived at that next hotel, there was a note from the Atlantis that I had forgotten items in my room, and they were already arranging to deliver them to me. Wow!
