Boasting the ultimate location on the Platinum coast of the island, Fairmont Royal Pavilion, is setting new standards of ultra-luxury in the Carribean and beyond, retaining a sense of serene seclusion with a unique beachfront position unlike any other resorts on the island.


Multi-Million Dollar Renovation

A multi-million dollar renovation at Fairmont Royal Pavilion has dramatically changed the hotel’s guest rooms and raised the bar for luxury hospitality in Barbados.  In November 2017 the restoration, designed to significantly enhance the facilities of the Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados was completed with the unveiling of  newly restored guest  rooms - all which are directly beach front.

Stunning New Rooms and Suites

Soothing beige and taupes, borrowed from the Hotel’s beachfront seascape, mingle tastefully with handcrafted woodwork and subtle local artwork, creating a beach inspired ambiance that blends seamlessly with the fabulous and uncompromised direct view of the ocean from every single room and suite. The Outdoor Deck has been redesigned into a chill-out space, replacing the balcony furniture with Day beds where the Fairmont experience is elevated even further.

Long-time guests will also note several new technological upgrades designed to improve functionality and comfort. For example the flat screen TV, state of the art joinery, and the beautiful glossy bar set. The Junior Suites now accommodate an indoor partition that give privacy, creating 2 different areas, offering the best possible use of the space, with custom furnishings and high-end finishes. The Legendary Fairmont Royal Pavilion invites guests to experience her new rooms.

All Rooms Come with an Ocean View

All of our newly renovated 72 Beachfront Junior Suites and Oceanfront Deluxe Rooms offer unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. Our Three Bedroom Villa is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, and offers garden views from the bedrooms and partially obstructed ocean views from two terraces.

All balconies and terraces feature comfortable furnishings, making this the perfect spot to enjoy magnificent vistas, whilst relaxing on the sun loungers, or enjoying a private candlelight dinner. Designed to inspire, the relaxed Caribbean style of the interiors echoes the island’s environment in the fabrics, accents and artwork, maintaining a warm and inviting residential feel.

All rooms offer comfortable Fairmont beds, flat screen TVs, refreshment center and DVD/CD players.

Inspired by Art

Explore the famed artistic heritage of Barbados,  celebrating the island’s cultural traditions. Your journey begins with a private audience with celebrated bajan artist, Sheena Rose. Selected for her light hearted and humorous interpretation of Bajan culture and communication, the pieces were chosen as they are colourful, vibrant and relatable for both locals and visitors.

Our second artist, Llanor Alleyne is a Bajan artist whose work has taken inspiration from her Bajan surroundings. Her use of collage was an interesting contrast to the work of our other artists. The pieces are organic and abstract. The abstract nature of the work means they are wholly subjective and can therefore be interpreted by different people in a variety of different ways. 

Finally, Stephanie Moore’s work was selected for its simplicity and use of mono block colour. It represents the rich and colourful Caribbean culture along with the warmth, friendliness and openness of the Bajan people.
