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
- Free WiFi

How to Get There
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!
Atlantis has been renovated into a comfortable, unpretentious hotel. Waking up in the morning in our room was lovely - direct oceanview. Hotel was quiet, staff friendly & food at restaurant surprisingly good. Look forward to returning.
While waiting for our accommodations at the Crane we sent a night at the Atlantis on the rugged less popular east coast. We are so glad we did. The hotel is a small boutique property located near the islands popular surf location. Its a beautiful quaint facility where you feel you've stepped back in time.
The room was amazing - spacious, clean, and best of with huge french windows all facing the sea that would open up fully to allow the sound and breeze to come in. Add to this a fabulously comfortable bed and I had the best sleep in years.
The restaurant had well prepared authentic Bajan options served but friendly staff. Great cocktails too!
Was taken here with a group for afternoon drinks and was able to capture gorgeous pictures. Very friendly natives! Will definitely return on a next visit. The island punch is tooooooooooo delicious! Luckily, we were able to enjoy a nice breezy weather, it was not too hot.
If tranquility and ease are what you treasure, this is your place. No hassle from check-in to check-out. It's on the other side of Barbados that I believe everyone should experience at some point, to just get away from everything and relax and replenish.
Great room, great views, great service. Highly recommended.
