FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.—Elegant Hotels Group’s west coast Barbados resort Colony Club will unveil its new look on Oct. 1.
The new concept focuses on relaxation, restoring mind and body, healthy eating, togetherness and minimizing impact on the local environment. Muted decor, soft lighting, natural wood and earth tones convey the old-world feel, accentuated by vivid color.
Sunil Chatrani, CEO of Elegant Hotels Group, commented, “We have put a lot of thought into what added extras we can offer Colony Club guests without stripping away the essence of what makes it such a special place – it’s set to be stunning.”
Creating more space for socializing, the Laguna Restaurant features a new modern design continuing the original plantation home feel. At the al fresco environment, guests enjoy garden, pool and sea views.
All of the 46 Oceanview, Luxury Oceanview, and Luxury Poolside rooms have been upgraded with a focus on preserving the residential plantation feel. The two-tone design blends with the Bajan-style coral stone walls and whitewashed wood ceilings, and is complemented by custom made warm-wood furniture. This includes four poster beds in most room categories, French doors opening onto private balconies or patios, and views of the ocean or lush gardens and tranquil pools.
The rooms also feature new amenities including flat screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and free WiFi for all guests. All rooms have natural skincare, bath and body products, and in-room fitness amenities, including personal yoga mats and in-room fitness channel.
Already using solar power for water and recycling glass/cooking oils, Colony Club uses new measures to minimize energy consumption, recycle and protect the environment, including the Organic Garden and more natural products in the rooms.
