The Caribbean island of Barbados is often described as an island that's sophisticated yet casual, warm and friendly, with a distinct charm that visitors can glimpse from the sun, sea, sand and Barbadian islanders themselves. Barbados is also considered to be a luxurious yet intimate setting for a romantic time away balancing the luxurious with the affordable. Anyone can go to Barbados and have a truly wonderful Caribbean holiday.
Couples Resorts acquired the Almond Casuarina hotel in Barbados in June 2013. With four successfully run resorts located in Jamaica the company decided to open their fifth resort on the beautiful island of Barbados. Couples Barbados is located along the south coast in the very popular resort and residential area of Dover on Maxwell Beach. The property is within walking distance of the lively St Lawrence Gap, an area well known for its night-time entertainment and party atmosphere.
As the only resort on the island devoted exclusively to couples, this Couples all-inclusive resort provides a tranquil location designed for complete relaxation and romance.
