The Island

Crystal Springs sits comfortably at the heart of the island's prestigious west coast, within easy reach of Speightstown, an historic town to the north filled with cafés, shops and restaurants, and Holetown, the island's epicenter for world-class shopping, elegant dining and vibrant nightlife.

Barbados also offers a range of internationally renowned sporting facilities, including three word-class golf courses, verdant polo fields and five-star marinas.  Watersport enthusiasts can enjoy sailing, scuba diving and surfing, while gearheads can get their fix at the Caribbean's premier circuit racing facility.

The island's 350+ history can be traced through its unique sites, including elegant plantation houses, traditional rum distilleries and rare treasures such as the oldest synagogue in the western hemisphere and the only house George Washington stayed at outside the United States.

There is also an abundance of natural attractions, including gullies, parks and beautifully maintained gardens.

Blue Sky Luxury's Guest Services Manager can assist with securing reservations, planning excursions and any other arrangements necessary, ensuring your stay is an unforgettable experience from start to finish.
