Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach

Looking out over the tropical gardens of Barbados’ Glitter Bay resort, this two-bedroom apartment lies close to one of the west coast’s most beautiful beaches. You will have a great view of the Caribbean Sea from your third-floor vantage point, and use of all the resort’s facilities including a swimming pool, restaurant and fitness centre.

Glitter Bay Apartment 310 is modern condo that features an attractive covered terrace with elegantly furnished areas for dining and relaxing, something it is easy to do in the tranquil surroundings of Glitter Bay. It’s just a short stroll down to the beach where you can swim with turtles and tropical fish or take up residence on a sun lounger.

From the terrace, you just breeze through to the apartment’s open living area, which is kept light and airy with sliding patio doors, a ceiling fan and air-conditioning. There’s a very comfortable seating area with large sofas, flat screen television and a well-equipped kitchen too – everything you could need is provided, from a fridge freezer to a dishwasher, but if you don’t feel like cooking, you can always make use of the resort’s own restaurant and bar.

The apartment features two bedrooms, each with a ceiling fan, TV and air conditioning. The large master bedroom has its own balcony, a king-size bed and en -uite bathroom, while the second bedroom has twin beds which can be converted to a king-size if needed. Both bedrooms also have a safe for secure storage.

As part of the sought-after Saint James area, Glitter Bay is a stunning destination, and located around 2km from Holetown, where you will find all you seek in terms of entertainment, shopping, nightlife and beautiful beaches. It’s a great base for travelling the length of the western coast, which is the location of the capital, Bridgetown, and the island’s second-largest town, Speightstown – both offer an insight into Barbados’ history and much more besides.

On the upscale west coast of Barbados, the Saint James parish is known with good reason as the island’s ‘platinum coast’. Aside from being a celebrity hangout, the area is famed for its beautiful white sand beaches, various golf courses and excellent dining options, as well as luxury brand shopping.

One of the area’s main towns, Holetown, is a good place to get acquainted with what Saint James has to offer. The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre brings shopping and entertainment together, with dozens of high-end stores, a multi-screen cinema and regular live events, from music concerts to art shows and craft fairs, while colourful Chattel village sets its shops in scenic tropical gardens.

The beachfront walks are another highlight, and particularly spectacular if you happen to be there at sunset. Eateries like Zaccios and Tides occupy some of the prime ocean-view locations, and with views like those, chances are you will want to try them out.

Holetown’s big annual event comes around each February – the Holetown Festival is a commemoration of the first settlement on the island in 1627. It’s a broad and lively celebration, encompassing everything from fashion shows and beauty contests to vintage car parades, sporting events and a Police Tattoo, and it’s a great opportunity to sample Bajan delights like macaroni pie and Barbados rum.

The town is also a centre for nightlife, concentrated mainly on Holetown’s First and Second Streets. Cool hangouts like the Red Door Lounge prove that Barbadians know how to party, and are very happy for you to join them. Head south of the town and a string of stunning beaches like Sandy Lane and Payne’s Bay await you, and it won’t be long until you find yourself in Bridgetown – the historic capital city is just 11km from Holetown.

About the Island & Getting There

About Barbados

At first glance you could be mistaken for thinking that Barbados is purely a beach holiday destination, but you're urged to reconsider this common belief. The island of Barbados is peppered with astonishing landscapes (both coastal and inland), enchanting locals, sublime cuisine, intriguing rums, fascinating wildlife, symbolic architecture and a selection of striking holiday villas.

Delve deep into the history of the island and start your holiday by visiting Sunbury Plantation House & Museum. This former plantation was built in 1660's and the premises are scattered with antiquities that delicately detail a recent history of Barbados. St. Nicholas Abbey also provides an insightful representation of Sugarcane production, Bajan artefacts and a wonderful observation point at Cherry Tree Hill. If you’re keen to visit one of the oldest Parliamentary buildings within the Commonwealth and appreciate the democratic legacy of Barbados, drop by The Parliament Buildings. This neo-gothic congress can be found in Bridgetown and act as a representation of Barbados’s Independence. There is so much history present throughout the island and as a result, Bridgetown and its Garrison has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, which the locals are very proud of.

Great efforts have been made to persevere the natural beauty of Barbados, so if you’re drawn to the exploration of National Parks and multicoloured gardens, it won’t take you long to realise that Barbados is a haven for such paradises! Within the Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Farley Hill National Park, Flower Forest, Hunte's Gardens and Welchman Hall Gully - visitors, and Botanist alike, will be lost for hours admiring these astonishing botanical parklands. Keep an eye out for the Dwarf Poinciana, or Peacock Flower…it’s the national flower of Barbados.

Bajan’s take their food very seriously! If you and your fellow travellers are enticed by the gastronomic aspect of holidaying, we believe you’ve selected the right island. With every aspect of cookery mastered; from pickling to freshly prepared dishes, sweet & savoury, fragrant & spicy and of course, the bountiful choice of seafood. Check out the food stalls in Paynes Bay Church – where vendors exhibit locally made dishes & street food that will scintillate the taste buds. At the end of every working week, locals and tourists both flock to Oistins, for 'Fish Fry Day'. This is a must for those who haven’t undergone the experience! The evening starts with barbecues and then ascends into a joyful party. This caps off a busy few days of work for locals as well as the 'strains' associated with serious holidaying.

Barbados is of course iconic for its Beaches & Rum…so why not bring them together? You will have to go out of your way not to be able to find a beach bar along the west coast of the island, as well as the countless Rum Shops. Yes, you’ve read correctly, Rum Shops! These small and locally run businesses embrace the Bajan spice of life, in liquid form. Very delicious! If you’re searching for something a little more special, take a trip to the east coast and visit Sand Dunes Bar and Restaurant at Windy Hill, for an unforgettable experience.

Barbados is a distinct and striking part of the Caribbean. It’s a great fit for all types of travellers, as the island really does have it all. For a little more information about this delightful island, check out our guide to a remarkable stay!

The great thing about a resort like Glitter Bay is that you don’t have to go looking for things to do, because they’re all right there. This place is a great family destination, and full of fun – check out the swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness centre, restaurant, gardens, ping pong… Glitter Bay has it all and more.

The beach is a peaceful one offering privacy and tranquillity, so it’s ideal for enjoying together. When they want more entertainment, it’s a short hop into Holetown where you have a multi-screen cinema, and lots of shops and restaurants – the ideal introduction to the Bajan cuisine which is not to be missed.

Glitter Bay 310 is equipped with comfy bedrooms, Wi-Fi and TVs, so they will be happy even when they’re at home. And when they’re out, you can wow them with some awesome excursions like a glass-bottomed boat trip to see the turtles, or a journey into the deep to see Harrison’s Cave.

With all sorts of sports to try and landmark sights to see all over the island, there are no limits to what might inspire them on Barbados – perhaps even a trip to the beautiful botanic gardens a short drive east of Holetown. For sheer adventure, head south to Bridgetown, with its incredible submarine trips and pirate ship cruises – both experiences they won’t soon forget.

  • Fantastic

    Posted by Pierce on 22/04/2018

    After hearing about this beautiful home in Barbados for years we were so happy to be able to come and stay for ourselves! It was the perfect way to escape our never ending winter and it is easy to see why it is so loved. The four of us had a fantastic time and we hope to visit gain one day. Especially now that we got our scuba certification!

  • We hope to be back next Jan 2019

    Posted by Deb on 10/02/2018

    We have had a fabulous time in 310 - the kitchen is just so well appointed - we cooked fresh fish most evening and ate outside on the lovely verandah. It is so relaxing here at glitter Bay - a stones throw from the a lovely beach and lovely staff. We hope to be back next Jan 2019 - thank you to Olive and Sonia for cleaning our appt and looking after us so well!!!

  • See you next year
