Aerial Photography of Glitter Bay - Barbados Villa Services  (click on the link)

We finally completed our much anticipated aerial photography for Glitter Bay and we are loving it!  Join us on this journey as we explore all that Glitter Bay has to offer.  For those of you who know Glitter Bay we hope that this will bring back fond memories of your stays with us and will remind you to book your next holidays!  For those of you encountering our property for the first time we are sure you will fall in love and see why we have so many repeat clients that just can't stay away!

As we take you from the gardens and grounds and to the beach and the ocean just picture yourself here basking in the sunshine, playing tennis on our two flood lit tennis courts, taking a relaxing swim in the fresh water swimming pool, taking a break from the sun with a refreshing rum cocktail from the bar, lounging on the beach and, if feeling energetic, taking a stroll on the sandy beach or trying your hand at some water sports like paddle boarding.

From the air you can appreciate the spacious grounds and the wide expanse of beach - always plenty of space for everyone.  Glitter Bay is a year round property for both families when school is out and for couples when school is in and for those in between seeking respite from every day life.  The playground and wading pool are ideal for the little ones and they have the freedom to roam around the gardens and maybe play a game of football, cricket or just run around in the sunshine.  If you are lucky you will even get to see some Green Monkeys as they troop across the gardens usually in the early morning or late afternoons.

Our beautiful beach is one of a kind.  No beaches in Barbados are private but because of the nature of the bay and the limited beach access between Holetown and The Gardens you will see only a few beach vendors and water sports operators plying the area.  Those that are here are well known and simply move on if you are not interested in viewing their wares or using their jet-ski or speed boat.  While we do not have a water sports facility at Glitter Bay, you can take advantage of the shop located right next door at Fairmont Royal Pavilion which offers non-motorised water sports like paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling, hobie cats and sun fish sailing.  For the more adventurous you can try waterskiing, banana and big mabel rides (need a good strong back to take all that bouncing around!) to name a few.

For meal options you are welcome to use the restaurant facilities at Fairmont -  we would recommend making reservations in advance.  While our apartments at Glitter Bay all have full kitchens for those mornings that you feel to be spoilt walk along the beach to as they have a great full breakfast buffet which is hearty and very reasonable.  They are also open for lunch and dinner.  Please note that use of their beach chairs, pool, etc are not permitted at any time.

Just along from Fairmont is the ever popular JuJus.  This well known beach bar is a colourful shack on the beach serving simple food at a very reasonable price.  Fresh catch of the day grilled with chips/fries along with salad and coleslaw is so good!  There are home-made hamburgers and sandwiches and this is one of our favourites places for a late lunch on a weekend.  Be warned, the place is tiny and there may be a wait for your food and drinks service but well worth it.  Just soak in the atmosphere, order some drinks, get a table on the covered deck or right on the beach and just sit back and enjoy the ambiance, go for a swim and when the food arrives you will see what we mean, fresh, tasty and good!  This is our top choice for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

A step away from JuJus is Lonestar.  This ever popular restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and it has its following especially among the wealthy ex-pats and the well known sports personalities especially footballers!  It is the perfect spot for people watching for during the winter season.  The setting is magical - right on the beach, with an updated decor which is coastal and very trendy.  They have just reopened this week for the winter season and are advertising some new menu options which we will be sure to try.  Well known for traditional English fare like dover sole Lonestar has a certain attraction that keeps people coming back for more.  It is just the place to be and to be seen.

Now that you have seen Glitter Bay and know a bit about what is close to hand be sure and share with your friends and family and start planning your holiday and book with us at Barbados Villas Services.  We look forward to welcoming you to Glitter Bay Barbados Suites!
