As they say in Barbados, ‘West is best’ and that is exactly where the Cobblers Cove is located in Speightstown.

With only 40 suites, this boutique, beachfront property offers true luxury, Bajan style and service. Offering various facilities such as a boutique shop, treatment rooms and the most stunning sea views from the pool area, it is the perfect choice for some downtime. 

Cobblers Cove has absolutely no connection to beach-dwelling shoemakers – the name comes from the cobbler bird, which you’ll still see fishing off the shore of the hotel. The on-site Saltwhistle Boutique stocks designer beachwear and souvenirs made by local craftspeople.

Rooms: Forty Suites

Location: Speightstown, Barbados


divine Dining

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served with lungfuls of sea air at Camelot restaurant, where painted bamboo chairs and starched white tablecloths overlook the glittering water. Bajan-born chef Jason Joseph prepares local and international cuisine in the kitchen, including seared yellowfin tuna and fisherman Barker’s catch-of-the-day. Every Tuesday is barbecue night, which means steak, ribs and seafood sizzled on the grill and served under the stars.

Room service
Any item from the lunch menu can be brought to your room, within restaurant hours.

sip & savour

The circular bar is in the shade of the Great House terrace, not that you’ll venture up there much when there’s service to your sunlounger. On the beautifully illustrated menu is the house rum punch, made to the classic Bajan recipe, ‘one sour, two sweet, three strong, four weak’. The signature drink though, is the Cobblers Cooler, made with grenadine, banana, orange, pineapple and several glugs of rum. Please drink responsibly…

pool serenity

The kidney-bean-shaped pool is on a sprawling terracotta terrace, with three sets of steps down to the beach. The snooze-ready sunloungers are as appealing to look at as they are to lie on – the vintage white frames are topped with extra-thick padding and towelling cov… Zzzz.

Whatever your dreams, Cobblers Cove will offer you the most romantic of settings, wall to wall sunshine, a sparkling sea and all the luxury of this intimate, family-run hotel. A day that you or your guests will remember forever.
