The New Waves Hotel in Barbados (Formerly Known As Escape Hotel and Spa)

Recently completely refurbished and upgraded to a very high standard, the four star Waves Hotel (formerly known as the Escape Hotel and Spa) provides a luxury venue for a tropical beach holiday in Barbados.

This all inclusive Barbados hotel overlooks Prospect Bay in the charming west coast parish of St.James, with its white sandy beach exclusively available to the hotel guests.

You will be able to choose from a wide range of guest rooms in the three storey main hotel building, Ocean House, or the adults only Spa hotel. These rooms are all equipped with air conditioning and a super King size bed!

The most obvious amenity for the Escape Hotel is the gorgeous beach, with its white sand and warm sea. With plenty of sun loungers and beach umbrellas available, chilling-out has never been easier.

If you would like a little more activity, there is wind surfing, snorkelling and kayaking equipment available by the beach, free to residents. The beach shop can also provide advice or arrange tuition in any of the activities, for all levels of ability.

If you fancy being active further a field, the staff at the shop will arrange sea fishing or scuba diving trips; these will incur an extra cost.

As a change from sea swimming, Ocean house has a large free form pool on the terrace, overlooking the sea. It is available for all, but children under 12 years old must be accompanied at all times.

In the Spa, there are a number of facilities and activities available to the Ocean House residents as well. The well-equipped fitness suite provides cycle and treadmill machines and the benches, weights and mats for general fitness training.

Here there is another free form pool, for adults only, which includes a “jumbo” whirl pool. A scuba diving class is held here once a week.

The Spa’s great attractions are the health treatments. These are available to all hotel guests, with each guest receiving two free treatments each week. If you are not relaxed enough, a massage in the Spa will do the trick; or treat yourself to a beauty treatment.

To serve the “inner person”, the Escape Hotel provides three restaurants and a number of bars. The main restaurant is the Seascape restaurant, which provides breakfasts and lunches everyday and dinner on five nights. The restaurant provides a wide variety of international and local dishes and holds a weekly barbecue and a Caribbean buffet, in the open air.

The Garden restaurant in the Spa has a mainly Caribbean cuisine, with emphasis on the healthier options. It is open for lunches each day and dinner every evening except Saturday.

For a change, “East” provides gourmet Asian-Pacific cuisine, each evening. It is available for dinner only.

There are three bars available: The Rum Shack, by the beach, and Craig’s Bar, in the main building, provide drinks of all kinds, all day. For later on, the After-hours bar in the Spa, serves until 1.0 am each evening.
