PARSIPPANY, New Jersey—Wyndham Grand announced it’s taking reservations for its newest resort, the 422-room all-inclusive Wyndham Grand Barbados, Sam Lord’s Castle Resort & Spa. The ocean-front hotel marks Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ entrance into Barbados and will begin welcoming its first guests beginning October 12 with select amenities, followed by a formal grand opening in early 2024.
“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 & 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.”
On the Southeastern side of the island of Barbados, 15 minutes from the Grantley International Airport, the hotel is located on the former site of Sam Lord’s Castle. The all-new construction, all-inclusive resort offers 422 guestrooms, including 37 suites with sustainable designs along with large ocean views and lanai-style private balconies.
The resort has more than 10 dining venues, which cater to a variety of tastes, including the Mediterranean Marketplace, pop-up food trucks, poolside dining, and more. Celebrating Barbados’ local offerings, the resort also has a “farm to fork” experience with locally sourced ingredients from nearby farmers, fishermen, and purveyors.
The hotel will have 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. The resort also offers 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space that can accommodate up to 1,100 guests, technology, and landscapes for staging weddings and special events.
Wyndham Grand offers an ensemble of hotels that are approachable by design, representing experiences, service, and surroundings. With more than 70 Wyndham Grand hotels around the globe, the introduction of Sam Lord’s Castle Resort builds on Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ 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.
“Wyndham Grand offers the perfect combination of aspirational, dream-worthy destinations with cozy rooms and indulgent amenities that make any trip feel special,” said Jimena Faena, vice president, Latin America and Caribbean marketing and brand operations, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “At Wyndham Grand Barbados, everything is at your fingertips, making it easier than ever to kick back, relax, and enjoy the beauty that Barbados has to offer.”
