Barbados Retreat & Intimate Royal Clipper Voyage

Spend seven nights in utter bliss during an all-inclusive Barbados beach escape before taking an intimate cruise around the Caribbean with Royal Clipper.

Barbados, a haven of sprawling white sandy beaches, twinkling azure waters and verdant palm forests, is where your adventure begins. Savour a seven-night hotel stay in the Garrison Historic Area at the Savannah Beach Club – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nestled on the pristine South Coast of the island, this four-star all-inclusive resort easily ranks as one of the most idyllic destinations on the island and offers the perfect escape for a luxury beach break. Enjoy the views of towering palm trees that whisper in the breeze and turquoise waters right at Savannah’s beachfront and indulge in the luxuries of this beautiful island.

Witness the most prestigious horse racing events at the Garrison Savannah or explore the historic sites. Head into the capital city of Bridgetown and admire its grand historic architecture or explore George Washington House, the same house and surroundings where the first U.S president stayed on his visit to Barbados.

Soak up the atmosphere from the vibrant stretch of St Lawrence Gap, famous for its superb restaurants, from Mexican to Irish, Jamaican to Chinese, stop for a bite to eat and meet some of the friendly locals. Head into the capital city of Bridgetown and admire its grand historic architecture or explore the ancient underground labyrinth of Harrison’s Cave. One of the greatest wonders in the heart of the island, it’s home to crystallised limestone walls, deep lagoons and flowing crystal blue streams.

Following your stay, you’ll settle in for an extraordinary seven-night cruise on board the magnificent Royal Clipper. The tallest in the Star Clippers fleet, there’s little to compare to the feeling of flying across the blue waters as she unfurls her 42 sails. On board there’s every luxury you could possibly imagine, from an elegant three-tiered dining room serving gourmet dishes to a well-stocked library and a spa.

Your magical voyage will include the chance to discover the beautiful islands of the Caribbean such as The Grenadines, St Lucia and Martinique, before you disembark back in Barbados.

Captain’s Best (Grenadines)

The Grenadines is made up of thirty islands, some of them barely big enough to accommodate a sun-lounger and many of them uninhabited. Whether you want to relax on sun-drenched beaches, delve into verdant rainforest hearts or climb to the highest peak for views across the islets, the Grenadines are the jewel in the crown of the Caribbean. You’ll call on one of these Islands, chosen by the captain, for a relaxing, no-frills beach day under the Caribbean sun.

St George’s (Grenada)

Also known as the Spice Island, St George’s is an aromatic experience as well as a beautiful one. Its main export is nutmeg which incenses the air while you walk along its pristine beaches. The horseshoe-shaped promenade at Carenage curls its way around the bay of St George’s, bobbing with colourful fishing boats. For a different perspective you could swim in the Underwater Sculpture Park where over time 80 pieces of beautiful art are slowly getting complemented by vibrant coral growth.

Tobago Cays (Grenadines)

Their stunning beaches and unique coral reef complexes offer fantastic sites for diving, swimming and snorkelling. These sleepy islands have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, perfect for enjoying their beautiful rainforests, beaches and nature reserves.

Kingstown (St Vincent) > Admiralty Bay (Bequia)

Kingstown

Bequia is a Carib word meaning “island of the cloud.” Hilly and green with several golden-sand beaches, Bequia is 9 miles (141⁄2 km) south of St. Vincent’s southwestern shore; with a population of 5,000, it’s the largest of the Grenadines. The ferry docks in Port Elizabeth, a tiny town with waterfront bars, restaurants, and shops where you can buy handmade souvenirs-including the exquisitely detailed model sailboats that are a famous Bequia export.

Martinique

The French outpost of Martinique blends Gallic charm with the colour and vibrancy of the Caribbean, and that includes its hybrid cuisine, a spicy and tantalising blend of flavours. Try dishes such as ‘crabes farcis’ – chilli-infused stuffed crab – or ‘accras de morue’ – cod fritters. With tropical forests, beaches and sleek super-yachts docked in the harbour, it’s one of the region’s most desirable spots and synonymous with luxury resorts.

St Lucia

St Lucia is an island of breathtaking beauty that deserves its reputation as one of the most romantic Caribbean islands. Its lush interior features towering mountains, dense rainforest, fertile valleys and acres of banana plantations but the island’s stand-out attractions are the sheltered coves hiding palm-fringed sandy beaches. In the capital Castries, visit bustling markets, do some duty-free shopping or head to the nearby beaches of Vigie or Marigot Bay.
