Adults-Only Pampering The House by Elegant Hotels, Paynes Bay, Barbados s you enter The House through a high wooden double door and a thick stone wall, a private walled garden effectively transports you from the world outside to the intimate atmosphere of this beguiling boutique hotel. This adults-only retreat makes its guests loosen up right from the first moments as you are offered a complimentary 30-minute massage to work off any jet lag at the intimate spa! The House is the smallest and most exclusive of the seven hotels that make up the Elegant Hotels portfolio on Barbados. There are no front-desk formalities here. It all adds to the feeling of being in a discreetly luxurious private home, where comfort comes first and the days unwind however you choose. With its hard-to-better beachside setting, laid-back culinary scene and imaginative selection of things to do, The House is destined to become one of the island’s best-loved adultsonly, all-inclusive resorts. There are just 34 spacious rooms and suites at The House, many with ocean views. The décor is minimalist without being cold. Whitewashed walls and neutral soft furnishings are complemented by bright local artworks and vibrant cushions, all designed to evoke the barefoot chic of a private beach house. The lush gardens are the perfect backdrop for a yoga class in the pavilion whilst the silky sands of Paynes Bay promise languid days enjoying a host of complimentary Waterborne activities. Turtle Time Paynes Bay Beach is one of the most beautiful on Barbados stretching for 250 metres and fringed by dense tropical vegetation including shade giving palm trees and Manchineel Apple trees. The bay is frequently visited by turtles. Jump on a paddle board to greet them or snorkel alongside!
