About Tamarind by Elegant Hotels

Tamarind by Elegant Hotels, opening onto a 230-metre stretch of white sand on Barbados’s Platinum West Coast, blends Mediterranean style with Caribbean cool. The resort incorporates a pool and spa, and offers unlimited free water sports.

A full buffet breakfast is served each morning, whilst guests can make use of several dining opportunities on site or within sister properties. These include the oceanfront 246 Deck and Waves, serving Asian fusion cuisine.
