If you know Parlour, then you know that we are all about our passports. And two years after discovering the Barbados Food Wine & Rum Festival, we are officially hooked on this little island. Last year we gave you a first-hand look into all of the fun we had, and this year—it’s your turn! This year Parlour has partnered with the Barbados Tourism Authority to bring you Eat, Play, Love Barbados—an intimate Parlour look at Barbados, before, during and after the Food Wine & Rum Festival and your guide on where to eat, where to play and how to love the island. More details are definitely to come but first things first, we had to make sure your hotel stay is truly in style. Remember, this year’s festival is November 16-19th! Let’s go!
After staying at Colony Club, having drinks and poolside fun at Tamarind and visiting The House to indulge in the exclusivity, we decided that all three properties represent the #ParlourLife to the fullest. All three cater to a discerning, chic clientele and are among the top hotels on the island. See below for information on how to save up to 40% off your stay at all three properties for the festival and add on more days for island fun. Looking for chic poolside fun with a group of girlfriends? Try Tamarind. Want to partake in a private, adults-only paradise? Take it to The House. Like to indulge in a bit of everything luxe? Join the Colony Club. Check them all out and we’ll see you there!
Tamarind. One word—fun. With rates starting at just $230 per night, you can’t get a better deal for this premium resort. It boasts three on-site pools, a variety of free water sports for those who dare and complimentary breakfast each morning while you look out onto the west coast of the island, also known as the platinum coast. Tamarind just completed a renovation in November 2010, including the addition of it’s intimate spa. Rooms are spread out in a number of three-story Mediterranean-style buildings designed for privacy and linked by a set of covered walkways, each interspersed with vegetation and fountains. All of the guest rooms open out onto a private balcony overlooking the hotel gardens or to the ocean.
