A MID-WINTER ESCAPE TO BARBADOS

When cocktails can no longer cure your winter doldrums, a few days of sunshine are in order. In four and a half short hours from NYC, you can be beachside in Barbados—and with our NEW SWIM COLLECTION arriving on site today, it’s the perfect excuse to book your ticket.

Discover Caroline’s favorite spots to stay, eat, and more: 

STAY: COBBLER'S COVE

This boutique hotel has just 40 rooms, all newly re-imagined by Lulu Lytle with a Caribbean pastel palette and loads of modern charm. Caroline’s recent visit provided print inspiration for days, and plenty of rum punch, of course. 

 

EAT: THE CLIFF

Plan to arrive an hour early to your dinner reservation to enjoy sunset cocktails on the upper deck of this breathtaking restaurant. Then move to a water-side table where you’ll feel like you’re floating as you watch the fish swim by and enjoy seared Mahi-Mahi or spicy seafood salad. 

 

PARTY: LA CABANE BEACH BAR

Is there anything better than hearing a live steel drum band play with your toes in the ocean and a pink sangria in your hand? La Cabane is a chic beach club with just the right amenities and the kind of “Island Time” service that will make you forget what day it is. 

 

PLAY: SWIM WITH THE SEA TURTLES

Book an afternoon catamaran to the west coast of the island, where you can get up close and personal with hawksbill and leatherback sea turtles, both native to the island, and soak up more shades of blue than you could have imagined.
