Barbados

On the northern edge of the Caribbean Sea, Barbados has long been the destination favoured by the rich and famous.

It certainly lives up to its glamorous reputation - the island is blessed with a wealth of acclaimed fine dining restaurants and boutique bars. However, with its laid-back vibe, there is something understandably luxurious about Barbados. An island of contrasts where natural wonders meet effortlessly sophisticated resorts and with seventy miles of sandy shores, you won’t have to look far to find somewhere to laze in the glorious Caribbean sunshine! Beautiful, glittering beaches will greet you at every turn - but be sure to get out and about, there are some stunning locations that cannot be missed. Saunter around the boutique shops and tea houses in Bridgetown and enjoy duty-free shopping at your fingertips. Barbados has something for everyone. Couples, families and groups of friends settle in their ideal location and have the time of their lives. The West coast offers upmarket hotels, restaurants and bars, whilst the South is livelier with its Rum shacks, restaurants and nightclubs – finding that right place to stay is where we can help, all you need to do is get in touch and leave the rest to us!

Barbados has a warm, year-round tropical climate - temperatures averaging highs of 30°C. The prevailing trade winds bring a cool breeze that is very often welcome and provides a respite from the midday sun. The driest months are December to June; with February to April being the best of these. From July to November the rain usually consists of brief, heavy showers, but there is lots of sunshine during the rest of the day. This is the official hurricane season, but the risk of hurricanes is very small as they normally pass to the north. However, they can affect weather on the island and there are also tropical storms at this time of year.

Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua is an easy-going island where brightly painted buildings light up the hillsides and historic forts.

Once a British naval base, there’s still a very British influence in Nelson’s Dockyard and a colonial feel to the whole island. It’s very much about being on the water and evidence of this are the luxury yachts bobbing in the turquoise bays and harbours, showcasing Antigua’s glamorous side. Antigua may be only small but here you will find a beach for every day of the year. Choose from bustling stretches of powder white sand backed by bars or tuck yourself away on one of the little-visited deserted bays. Venture inland and you will pass coconut groves and banana plantations ending up at some of the most amazing view points from which to observe the islands natural beauty.

Why not pop over to Antigua’s smaller neighbour, Barbuda. Undeveloped and unspoilt with an authentic Caribbean feel and with just a small number of hotels this is the perfect place to escape for a few days during your stay. The island is a haven for wildlife, with the Frigate Bird Sanctuary located in the island’s north-western lagoon.

Temperatures range from the mid-twenties in the winter, to the high twenties in the summer with plenty of sunshine throughout the year. Antigua and Barbuda are the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands, with a low average annual rainfall and low humidity year-round. With cooling trade winds from the northeast, which drop off only in September, the islands enjoy pleasant temperatures and perfect conditions for water sports and especially sailing. July- October is the official hurricane season.

We have all loved our stays on these two gorgeous islands and would love to share our knowledge of them with you to make sure your dream holiday becomes a reality.

St Lucia

When you first lay eyes on St Lucia it’s easy to see why people fall in love with it.

Fringed by largely unspoilt beaches, St Lucia is mountainous and blanketed by pristine rainforest and of course the iconic Pitons.  No wonder St Lucia is one of the world’s most romantic destinations. Luxury getaway hotels nestle into the hillsides, blending perfectly with this island’s natural beauty. There are also many hotels set on palm-fringed bays that dot the west coast between Castries and the island’s northern tip. The northern-most town of Gros Islet is a lively destination with a number of bars, restaurants and nightclubs if you are looking for a little more outside your accommodation. While it’s the perfect place for couples seeking secluded hideaways or families looking for beach fun, there’s more to St Lucia than first meets the eye. The best way to make the most of the island’s incredible landscapes is to get out and explore, from nature trails, zip line challenges and mountain biking to hot springs, sailing and diving. Whether you’re looking for a picture-perfect honeymoon or a gorgeous family holiday, we are here to help you with your St Lucia planning.

There’s never a bad time to visit the Caribbean. However, most people think that December to April is the best time to visit when it’s slightly cooler, drier and less humid. Enjoy the most pleasant of climates with temperatures at 24-29°C year round. May to November can be wetter, with hurricanes possible from July to October.
