Why Barbados is the Best Place to Celebrate a Big Birthday
When it comes to celebrating milestone birthdays, it has become something of a tradition to jet off with family or friends for a special holiday. This often means going somewhere exotic, with lots to do and, importantly, where life-long memories can be made. If you are looking to splash out on a birthday, either for yourself or for a loved one, here’s why Barbados is the ideal location.
Guaranteed great weather
Regardless of the time of the year a birthday happens, the one thing you can be pretty sure of is that the weather in Barbados is warm and sunny. Even during the wetter times of the year, the island still averages eight hours of sunshine a day and average winter temperatures are 26°C. This makes it ideal for getting out and about and exploring all the wonderful places, activities and amenities our beautiful island has to offer.
Amazing places for celebrations
Another important birthday tradition is treating yourself or your loved one to a wonderful meal in a first-class restaurant. The west coast of Barbados is the perfect location to find the island’s most exclusive dining and best cuisine. Internationally renowned chefs have established several sublime eateries around Holetown and the western shoreline. The atmospheres are relaxed and cosy, the service impeccable and the dishes are to die for. Many have spectacular views of the Caribbean too, so you can eat your meal while enjoying the glorious Barbadian sunsets. Notable places to eat include The Cliff, Royal Westmoreland Beach Club, Cin Cin, The Tides, Champers and the Fusion Rooftop.
Pamper yourself in a fabulous spa
Who doesn’t love a good pampering – and what better time to enjoy it than when celebrating a big birthday? In Barbados, you’ll find some of the most blissful treatments in the most sumptuous and relaxing environments. Soothe away those aches and pains, say goodbye to stress and tension and relax into your holiday. You’ll find fantastic spas dotted around the south and west coasts. These include The Healing Power of Touch, Atera, Schotherapy, Baje and the not to be missed Singita Wellness Centre at Mullins Beach.
It’s impossible to write about all the fabulous experiences to be enjoyed in Barbados, there are just too many to mention. However, this small island has an awful lot to offer, including reef and shipwreck diving, submarine tours, Jeep safaris, world heritage sites, many places of natural beauty, arts, music, history and culture, personalised catamaran tours, world-class golf and fishing, beautiful tropical beaches, an array of water sports, festivals, carnivals and fabulous bars. This, of course, is merely scratching the surface. And, wherever you go, you’ll find a warm welcome from the friendly people of Barbados.
Relax and take it easy
If you are going to have a big birthday holiday to remember, then where you stay is just as important as what you do. When it comes to luxury accommodation par excellence, then a villa, apartment or townhouse at the prestigious Royal Westmoreland resort is a must. This 750-acre private, gated estate with stunning views over the west coast, boasts 250 of the island’s most luxurious properties, from one-bedroomed apartments to seven-bedroomed villas. All properties are exquisitely designed and finished, with mod cons and designer kitchens, providing comfortable, easy, open plan living.

Most of the villas have private pools and gardens, and large terraces for sunbathing and exterior dining.

On-site, you’ll find a championship standard, Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed golf course, floodlit tennis courts and a modern, fully-equipped gym with saltwater pool.
