Barbados may be considered the most romantic island in the Caribbean, but for those of us who live here, romantic walks on the beach and sunsets, as magnificent as they are, just won’t cut it this Valentine’s. If you wish to score big this year, check out below for some awesome ideas.
Breakfast at L’Azure Restaurant, The Crane
Famous for panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Crane beach, L’Azure Restaurant at The Crane Resort serves up the perfect romantic dining experience on Barbados’ south-east coast. The restaurant offers an atmosphere of elegance and beauty to patrons sitting inside or on the cliff-top balcony. While a tempting range of classic Caribbean and international delicacies are on offer daily for lunch and dinner, it is the restaurant’s Sunday Gospel Breakfast that truly delights. Diners are serenaded by a live gospel choir while enjoying selections from an expansive buffet spread – a “must do” for couples in Barbados! Reservations are required.
Sweetfield Manor Boutique Hotel
Sweetfield Manor Boutique Hotel offers 10 comfortable, well-appointed guestrooms, each of which are uniquely charming and all within well-kept grounds. The rooms are distributed between the historic manor house (circa 1900’s) and the outer buildings, some of which served as stables at the turn of the last century. Spacious patios are available with several rooms to allow enjoyment of the West Indian outdoors from your own private space. Room amenities and services were selected to make your stay as comfortable as possible and include Nespresso coﬀee systems, L’Occitane toiletries, Mascioni towels and cozy terry cloth bathrobes for the cool West Indian nights. Other amenities include concierge service, spa and invitation to our weekly yoga sessions! These services and amenities are all designed to make your stay with us truly memorable.
Dine in a romantic setting under centuries old mahogany trees nestled in our Courtyard fine dining restaurant, PAVAO and enjoy the tantalizing international cuisine prepared by award winning Master Chef, Trevon Stoute and his culinary team!
There are few places on the island to go for a stroll. If you have not as yet experienced the beauty of the south-coast boardwalk, TRUST US, this is one of the only places to go for a walk with your loved one along the water’s edge with a spectacular view of the sunset. Stop off at TAPAS and order one of their sexy cocktails and sample some delicacies off their new menu.
One of the most romantic things to do is to share food – we suggest you order a number of tapas (small Spanish plates meant for sharing) which range between $10- $21 each. We highly recommend making a reservation at one of their seaside tables to ‘MACO’ whose walking past.
The Tides Barbados
Whether it’s your 1st or 70th date, The Tides Restaurant sure is the place to ignite that spark! Set in the magical backdrop of what was once a classic seaside Barbadian home built after the Second World War with coral stone and mahogany, The Tides Restaurant is now one of the leading restaurants located on the water’s edge of the West Coast of Barbados. Start the evening by sipping on one of their many charismatic cocktails in their chic lounge, and continue the night of love with a tantalizing dinner perched on the Caribbean Sea. We think we’ve found a match made in heaven.
The Cliff Backyard Bar
Get lost in the rhythmic percussion of the waves, watching the beautiful sunset while basking in the flavour of one of The Cliff Beach Club‘s signature cocktails. There is nothing more idyllic for a romantic evening for two over tapas, at The Backyard Bar, with its sexy boudoir setting. This makes our list of one of the MOST romantic things to do on the island.
Champagne cocktails start at $30, or share a bottle of prosecco for $115.
The Wine Cave
It’s one thing to buy a bottle of wine for your loved one, but another to sample a whole range of wines in a wine cave.
The Wine Cave in Cane Garden, St. Thomas is a super sexy wine store which will transport you to the vineyards in France or California.
Choose from one of the most impressive displays of wine on the island at prices that can fit any size pocket. They have a great choice of rosé and white wines already chilled along with a tantalising choice in reds.
In the event you wish to pop open a bottle, their sommelier will serve you either in the Wine Cave or table-side at Open Kitchen, the eatery next door.
A Picnic with a Basket from Relish!
One of the most romantic things to do on island is to ‘get away from it all’.No reservations needed. No waiters. No waiting. And total privacy. Simply grab a blanket and a couple of cushions, two glasses (and a bottle opener if needed), and call Relish at Limegrove to pack a picnic for you.
Relish is one of the few places on island that serves up awesome, delicious good ole’ healthy tid-bits and meals.
They will pack them up in grab-n-go containers with cutlery, napkins and your choice of Joe flavoured Iced Tea, fresh juices beer or wine.
Their picnic offerings go way beyond their menu found here
Have them throw in some Joe Chips, artisan crackers with deli meats or cheese plate with a bottle of Tipsy stuffed olives or Tipsy pickled onions and a pack of scrumptious Manitou dried apple rings or Cantaloupe to munch on for dessert. Relish also carry one of the yummiest salsa which they can pack up with some tortilla artisan chips which also go well with the cheese plate.
