Part of Caribbean history, Coral Reef Club has been owned by the O’Hara family for over 60 years.
Coral Reef Club is another Caribbean property with a long-standing and totally deserved reputation for excellent service and discreet luxury. Located on the west coast in the Parish of St James in a prime location within 12 acres of mature tropical gardens. 45 minutes from the airport and 25 minutes to Bridgetown.
The resort area of Holetown with its boutiques, restaurants and rather impressive – and expensive – Limegrove shopping mall, is just a few minutes drive away or you can walk within 10 minutes using the seafront pathway. There are several golf courses nearby. Speightstown, with its collection of upscale beach bars, is 10 minutes drive up the coast.
The 88 rooms are dotted throughout the extensive tropical gardens leading down to the long narrow beach.
The Garden rooms (*there are a few purposely built for the single traveller and priced accordingly), Cottages or Superior Junior Suites are all located in the gardens with integrated living areas. The luxury Junior suites are closer to the beach.
Luxury Cottages and Luxury suites enjoy a separate living room and plunge pool.
The Plantation Suites have an even more traditional Caribbean theme, with terrace and plunge pool. No Children under 12 years
Each room or suite is named after a tropical flower, fruit or tree.
Highly impressive spa, without doubt, one of the best in the region.

Complimentary non-motorised water sports

Sister hotel to the equally elegant Sandpiper, with whom it has an exchange facility arrangement
Part of Caribbean history. Hushed elegant subtle conservative tones, emphasised in the West Indian Colonial/gingerbread design style rooms and suites. The ambience and the wonderfully mature and expansive tropical gardens complement it all perfectly. A hotel with an incredible list of repeat clients.
David from Chic has known the hotel and the O’Hara family for over 45 years – yes he really is that vintage! During that time he has seen clients who first travelled as honeymooners now return with their Grandchildren. The hotel has also evolved in a quite subtle manner, almost unnoticed at first glance but always appreciated. Contemporary touches infusion with Caribbean elegance.
Coral Reef is the exact opposite of the “got it, flaunt it” style of one of its equally famous West coast rivals. Here wealth is politely assumed but rarely discussed.
Children under 12 are not accepted mid-January-end February, and those under 5 are not permitted in the restaurant or bars after 7 pm.
The hotel is particularly popular with families in the summer months. The Coral Reef Club has several enticing offers and attractions around this time, including tennis, swimming and sailing lessons.

Pear shaped, frequently called Little England. It was England’s second settlement in the Caribbean way back in 1627 (St Kitts was the first in 1623).
One of the most developed of the islands. Its size is similar to the Isle of Wight, and with probably the best infrastructure making it the ideal introduction to the region. It also has one of the highest repeat followings, drawn by the excellent hotels, the superb restaurants, the good beaches particularly on the West coast where all of our hotels are located.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
