Sandy Lane, Barbados
Fêted by many as the jewel in the Caribbean, Sandy Lane has a long and illustrious dalliance with the glamorous jetset. Whilst the grown-ups might enjoy a spot of people-watching, younger guests can get their kicks at The Treehouse Club, a fully equipped indoor play space for children aged three to 12 years, with a host of games, drama and sports on offer. Under-threes are welcome in the Toddler Corner, while teens have The Den, with internet access, pool and table football.
With children happily entertained, parents can indulge in fine dining, a world-class spa, golf or water sports. Sandy Lane’s enviable beachside location also offers a gorgeous stretch of soft white sand – perfect for sandcastle building – from where you can watch the waves gently lapping on the shore, whilst indulging in complimentary tropical drinks, sorbets and fresh fruit.
If you can tear yourself away from Sandy Lane’s unbridled luxury, Barbados has other family attractions on offer, too, including the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, where you’ll see green monkeys, exotic birds and turtles in their natural environment, and Harrison’s Cave, a magnificent, crystallized limestone cavern.
From £1,490 per night for a family of four with Destinology.
