Toronto, Canada – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
November 1, 2010 will see the re-opening of The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, one of Barbados’ most cherished and prestigious ocean front resorts, following a two-month renovation program starting September 1st, designed to enhance its already unique and unrivalled beachfront presence.
Set amidst eleven acres of lush tropical gardens, this elegant and understated colonial-style resort will debut a new category of room – 24 spacious 750 square-foot Beachfront Junior Suites with private terraces, perfect for moonlit dining “à deux” overlooking the ocean. Serviced by experienced butlers dedicated to providing the ultimate in personalised care, these latest additions will join the existing inventory of 48 Oceanfront Deluxe guest rooms.
The architecture and interior design of these new suites reflect the rich heritage of the island, taking inspiration from a typical Barbadian plantation house, with soft serene hues complementing the rich walnut tones of the traditional furnishings. The subtle interior textures are contrasted by deeper toned accents with a choice of seating areas from which to enjoy the view – both inside and out on the private terraces. Original commissioned artwork is displayed throughout the suites and all feature complimentary Wi-Fi, 42” flat screened TVs with satellite channels and a media panel with a DVD/CD player and MP3 docks.
Guests booking a junior suite will also benefit from an airport fast track service, being personally escorted through the diplomatic area in immigration and customs, personalised check in and check out, a dedicated butler service, daily in-room amenities and delicious complimentary evening canapés.
The public areas of the hotel have also been refreshed. At the heart of the new design, are the coral tones of the exterior, which have been influenced by the historical context of the property and the overall island experience. Discreet new seating areas warmed by burnt coral cushions, tempt guests to relax into their deep embrace.
During high season, the resort is primarily couples-orientated but throughout the summer months of April to October, children of all ages are invited to join their parents when the hotel offers complimentary daily kids and teens activities. A wide range of water sports is offered, including snorkelling, wakeboarding, water-skiing, Hobie Cat and sunfish sailing and kayaking. For spa aficionados, holistic spa treatments and massages are offered in the comfort and privacy of guest rooms.
