Island Inn is steps away from the sandy shoreline of Barbados' Carlisle Bay. The beach is one of the largest on the island, and has shallow waters that are safe for paddling and swimming. Staying here puts you in between the beach and town, and a lot of local shops are within walking distance. The island's capital of Bridgetown is a short drive away from the hotel. Originally built as a rum store, the hotel is part of the Historic Garrison Area of Barbados. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was designated a national treasure of Barbados. The hotel has stone walls, paved paths and floor-to-ceiling latticed windows, while the gardens and pool area are filled with flowers and plants. You can spend days at Island Inn enjoying some cocktails from the bar, which opens from morning until night, or dipping in and out of the pool. You can take advantage of the hotel's All Inclusive meals and enjoy local and Caribbean cuisine. Island Inn puts on music and entertainment three nights per week. There are a few bars and restaurants along the beachfront at Carlisle Bay. Here you can spend relaxing nights taking in the views and enjoying some local food or drinks.
A highlight of this part of Barbados is its tropical coastlines. Carlisle Bay is 1.5km away, and is particularly popular for its underwater marine park, where six shipwrecks provide a scuba diving experience. Dive here and you can see all sorts of sea life, including sea horses, rays, octopus and squid. To see the island's culture and history, head to Bridgetown, which is 3km from the hotel, to experience its mix of traditional and modern Bajan culture. You can shop in bustling markets and commercial stores. You can also visit local hotspot Baxter's Road to find British colonial-style architecture, friendly cafÈs and energetic bars after dark.
The hotel's restaurant provides a buffet breakfast. There are buffet and ‡ la carte options available for lunch and dinner, where you can enjoy local and international cuisine. There is also a barbecue evening every Wednesday. You can get drinks in between meals from the hotel bar.
Activities at Island Inn are centred around the sea, so you might like to go yachting, fishing or snorkelling. You can also swim with native turtles here.
The rooms at Island Inn have wooden furnishings, and each comes with air conditioning, a TV and coffee and tea making facilities.
