About The Sandpiper

The Sandpiper is discreetly one of the most exclusive small hotels in the West Indies. It is embraced by lush gardens filled with tropical flora, creating an atmosphere of ultimate privacy. Situated on a beautiful sandy beach gently lapped by turquoise waters and bordered by a tree shaded wooden deck, The Sandpiper is a true vacation hideaway.

Much of this hotel's charm and style are attributed to Wayne and Karen Capaldi who run it with meticulous attention to detail without sacrificing the relaxed manner of the Caribbean. This, combined with their staff's enthusiasm for pampering their guests, results in many appreciative visitors choosing to return year after year. With just 50 rooms and suites and a member of “Small Luxury Hotels of the World”, The Sandpiper has quickly become a favorite retreat for those discerning guests looking for that winning combination of intimacy, informality and privacy.
Lush tropical gardens lead down to a large bay with white sands overlooking crystal blue waters, where the swimming is wonderful and the range of complimentary non-motorized water sports is excellent. There is also golf and tennis for land lovers and the hotel has its own fitness center.

Each of the bedrooms and suites has its own private terrace and all are carefully appointed to be light, spacious and airy, with a touch of Caribbean colour and flair. The One and Two Bedroom Suites each have a kitchen and living room and are perfect for families. The luxurious Tree Top Suites have their own plunge pool, wrap around terrace and outstanding interior design. They are complemented by two beautiful ocean front Beach House Suites which have a large covered patio featuring a wet bar and sun deck and are located right on the beach.

The restaurant has gained a fine reputation and offers an eclectic menu with a Caribbean undertone. Open on three sides to torch lit tropical gardens and surrounded by tranquil koi ponds, it is regarded by discerning diners as one of the very best in Barbados. Executive Chef, Christophe Poupardin, and his team offer eclectic food with a Caribbean flair from dinner menus which change five times each week. For alfresco lunches and sundown cocktails, Harold’s Beach Bar is the perfect spot. Renowned for its location right on the beach and the special charm of its namesake, Harold Shepherd, Harold’s Bar is a timeless “Bajan” treasure.

The Spa which is located at sister hotel, Coral Reef Club, is housed within a beautiful colonial inspired building with clean, modern lines, set within a tropical garden paradise. Exotic vegetation and waterfalls weave throughout the spa, from the four multipurpose treatment rooms, each with its own private foot ritual patio and garden, to the Outdoor Pavilion for couples. The scene is set for unparalleled natural beauty and tranquility. Classic charm has been combined with a modern aesthetic, the interior design and layout winning The Spa widespread acclaim.
