Accra Beach Hotel & Spa
On the outskirts of Bridgetown, right on the doorstep of spectacular Caribbean beaches, sits Accra Beach Hotel & Spa. The 4-star resort welcomes the whole family for a stay in paradise, beginning with welcome drinks and cold towels on arrival. Accra Beach Hotel & Spa features two outdoor swimming pools, a variety of relaxing bars, luxurious spa facilities, and four modern restaurants serving a range of Caribbean, European and Asian cuisine. Holidaymakers wanting to make the most of the beachside location can enjoy complimentary access to loungers and umbrellas, while watersport equipment is also available too. Even younger guests at Accra Beach Hotel & Spa are catered for too, with a kids’ club and games room on-hand.
Accra Beach Hotel & Spa’s south-west location places it in the perfect position for those wanting to experience all the different sides of Barbados. An 18-minute drive from the international airport and an 11-minute drive from the capital of Bridgetown, the resort sits handily in the middle. Direct access onto Rockley Beach means that guests can lap up the idyllic scenes within minutes of stepping out of their rooms; meanwhile, there are also other various stretches of beaches located closeby. Key attractions near to the resort include George Washington House - an 18th century plantation home visited by the first president of the USA - and Agapey Chocolate Factory, where guests can enjoy tours of the factory and chocolate samples.
Each of 221 rooms and suites provide a relaxing private retreat for guests; rooms are decorated with warm colours, relaxing prints and rustic wooden shutters. All of the accommodation includes amenities such as free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, coffeemakers, mini-fridges and in-room safe. Many of the rooms also include a spacious private balcony, kitted out with a table and chairs. In the modern ensuite bathrooms guests will find a toilet, shower and complimentary toiletries. Standard Rooms are available with an island, pool or ocean view, while larger suites and a state room are also available. As well as boasting extra space, the luxury suites offer a separate living area, a jacuzzi tub and an optional private bar.
Food and Drink
From Thai cuisine to contemporary European dishes, the four on-site restaurants offer it all. Casual meals are offered at Coco Path, a Caribbean-style restaurant where guests can tuck into breakfast and lunch every day. Accra Deck is an open-air restaurant located next to the ocean which offers high-end European cuisine, while Chinese, Thai, Japanese and Indonesian cuisine fills the menu at Pacifika Kitchen. One of the weekly highlights is an authentic Thai buffet served up at Pacifika every Saturday evening. Finally, The Fig Tree combines food with live entertainment; on Tuesdays there’s a curry and kebab night, while on Thursdays there’s a Sea, Salt and Fire barbecue with everything from live music to a limbo competition.
Sports, Games and Entertainment
Accra Beach Hotel & Spa features two swimming pools; one exclusively for adults, and one for the whole family. The on-site Chakra Spa offers a whole host of pampering treatments - either enjoy a visit to the sauna or steam room, or relax into a spa treatment such as a massage or facial. Those heading to the beach can make the most of the near-perfect conditions with complimentary use of flippers, goggles and boogie boards. Meanwhile, the hotel’s hospitality lounge features a cosy seating area along with a mini-library and a HD TV. Come the evening, guests can sip on drinks in one of the three bars.
