Wyndham Grand, the hotel brand known for its upscale accommodations and approachable designs, announced Thursday it’s now taking reservations for its newest resort, the inviting 422-room all-inclusive Wyndham Grand Barbados, Sam Lord’s Castle Resort & Spa. The secluded, ocean-front hotel marks Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ entrance into Barbados and will begin welcoming its first guests beginning October 12 with select amenities, followed by a formal Grand Opening in early 2024.
“Barbados offers the perfect backdrop for a chic and upscale getaway – lush, tropical gardens, uninterrupted ocean views and an array of opportunities to unplug, unwind and make lasting memories with friends and family,” said Gustavo Viescas, president of Latin America and Caribbean for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Wyndham Grand Barbados brings all of that to life on our legendary grounds, allowing guests to take a step back to practice self-care and immerse themselves in the beauty of the nature around them.”
Nestled on the Southeastern side of the island of Barbados, just 15 minutes from the Grantley International Airport, the hotel is located on the former site of Sam Lord’s Castle, which was once renowned for pirates during the 19th century. The resort offers 422 guest rooms, including 37 suites with sustainable designs, along with large ocean views and lanai-style private balconies.
At peak operation, guests can enjoy contemporary culinary experiences in the resort’s more than 10 dining venues, which cater to a variety of tastes. Culinary highlights include the Mediterranean Marketplace featuring flavors from North Africa, Italy, France, Portugal and Spain, pop-up food trucks, poolside dining and more. Celebrating Barbados’ local offerings, the resort also features a specialty “farm to fork” experience with locally sourced ingredients from nearby farmers, fisherman and purveyors.
The hotel will feature a 13,000 square foot spa with a pool area and relaxation deck, along with a state-of-the-art fitness center and a sunrise yoga center. Other on-site amenities include lagoon-style swimming pools, a kids center, butler service, tennis and pickleball courses. The resort also offers 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space that can accommodate up to 1,100 guests. Guests are encouraged to contact the hotel directly for the latest on available amenities.
“Wyndham Grand offers the perfect combination of aspirational, dream-worthy destinations with cozy rooms and indulgent amenities that make any trip feel special,” said Jimena Faena, vice president of Latin America and Caribbean Marketing and Brand Operations for Wyndham. “At Wyndham Grand Barbados, everything is at your fingertips, making it easier than ever to kick back, relax and enjoy the beauty that Barbados has to offer.”
