Superb beachfront location and tasty cuisine
Pricey room rates
Perhaps Treasure Beach's biggest draw is its position on Paynes Bay Beach in Holders Hill, Barbados. This adults-only Elegant Hotels outpost provides guests with a variety of complimentary water sports and free land-based activities, including morning beach walks and food-styling workshops. If you're more interested in relaxing, head to the on-site pool and order drinks and snacks via the pool ambassadors. But the oceanfront setting isn't the only thing travelers applaud. Visitors also praise the suites, which were renovated in 2017 and boast private balconies or patios, free Wi-Fi access, two flat-screen TVs and stocked minibars. (Some of the deluxe suites also include a private plunge pool.) Along with revamped rooms, Treasure Beach features stellar culinary service. The property's eatery, Tapestry Restaurant, serves globally inspired, buffet-style dishes for breakfast, as well as seasonally influenced a la carte items for lunch and dinner. All room rates cover daily breakfast and a chef's dinner, which is hosted inside the resort's wine cellar. Though recent visitors praised the on-site cuisine, they warned that a stay here is expensive.

Critic Reviews



Quiet, upscale, and intimate, this adults-only boutique hotel has been a guest favorite years. When it became the 7th Elegant Hotels property on Barbados (and the 6th on the island's west coast), it was completely gutted and redesigned, reopening in late 2017.


This 35-suite boutique hotel has a prime location on the west (platinum) coast of Barbados, close to high-end dining, shopping, and entertainment. The restaurant and pool area are at the heart of the property and are picturesque and popular with guests.
