PARSIPPANY, New Jersey— Wyndham Grand recently opened its newest resort, the 422-room, all-inclusive Wyndham Grand Barbados, Sam Lord’s Castle Resort and Spa. The oceanfront hotel marks Wyndham Hotels and Resorts’ entrance into Barbados, and the property began welcoming its first guests in mid-October with select amenities. A formal grand opening is planned for early 2024.
The resort also offers 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space that can accommodate up to 1,100 guests, top-of-the-line technology and purposefully built landscapes for receptions and special events. Guests are encouraged to contact the hotel directly for the latest on available amenities.
“Barbados offers the perfect backdrop for a chic and upscale getaway – lush, tropical gardens, uninterrupted ocean views and an array of opportunities to unplug, unwind and make lasting memories with friends and family,” said Gustavo Viescas, president, Latin America and Caribbean, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. “Wyndham Grand Barbados brings all of that to life on our legendary grounds, allowing guests to take a step back to practice self-care and immerse themselves in the beauty of the nature around them.”
Located on the Southeastern side of the island of Barbados, about 15 minutes from the Grantley International Airport, the hotel sits on the former site of Sam Lord’s Castle, which was once known for pirates during the 19th century. The all-new construction, all-inclusive resort offers 422 guest rooms, including 37 suites that feature ocean views and lanai-style private balconies.
At peak operation, guests can enjoy contemporary culinary experiences at more than 10 dining venues at the resort. Culinary highlights include the Mediterranean Marketplace, featuring flavors from North Africa, Italy, France, Portugal and Spain, as well as pop-up food trucks, poolside dining and more. Celebrating Barbados’ local offerings, the resort also features a specialty “farm to fork” experience with locally sourced ingredients from nearby farmers, fisherman and purveyors.
For guests seeking to unwind, the hotel will feature a 13,000-square-foot spa with a pool area and relaxation deck, along with a fitness center and a sunrise yoga center. Other on-site amenities include lagoon-style swimming pools, a kids center, butler service, tennis and pickleball courses.
Wyndham Grand Barbados, Sam Lord’s Castle Resort and Spa is committed to improving the environment and supporting the global and local community by developing and implementing sustainable programs that deliver economic benefits to the surrounding area. The eco-hotel brings this concept to life using sustainably sourced wood, a chef’s garden integrating food crop production and education, eco-friendly alternatives to single-use plastics, high-efficiency fixtures, LED bulbs and floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows in guest rooms to allow for natural light and ventilation.
With more than 70 Wyndham Grand hotels around the globe, the introduction of Sam Lord’s Castle Resort builds on Wyndham Hotels and Resorts’ rapidly growing all-inclusive offerings throughout the Caribbean, joining resorts like Wyndham Alltra Samaná in the Dominican Republic and TRS Coral Costa Mujeres in Mexico, among others.
