On the eastern edge of the Caribbean Sea exists a place of enchantment. A
magical oasis of luxury where the sand is white and pink, the sea and sky
cornflower blue, the people warm and friendly, and the hospitality fit for
sophisticated travellers. The Fairmont Royal Pavilion has been described
as The Jewel in the Crown of Barbados. The Fairmont Royal Pavilion blends old
world grace and stunning scenery - a place where you can make memories that last
The Fairmont Royal Pavilion and the Fairmont
Glitter Bay sit side-by-side on the famous West Coast of Barbados.
Considered one of the most appealing of all Caribbean shorelines, the west coast
site was discovered and named at the turn of the century by prominent Barbados
businessman, George Manning.
The Fairmont Royal Pavilion was originally The Miramar
Hotel, built in the 1940s and the first Hotel to be constructed on the West
Coast of Barbados. The original structure had only 12 Rooms and now houses the
Palm Terrace Restaurant and the Resort's administrative offices. Cafe Taboras
was once the manager's Bungalow and the three-Bedroom Villas were the Garden
Rooms. In later years came an expansion into a Hotel/condominium complex. The
Miramar was purchased and work started immediately to transform it into the
luxurious Royal Pavilion within a miraculously short time. Doors opened in
December 1987, just in time for the holiday season.
Today, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion retains its aura of
understated elegance in a beautiful tropical setting. Primarily a
couple-oriented Resort during the high season, sister property The Fairmont
Glitter Bay is across the lawns and welcomes families year-round.
The Fairmont Royal Pavilion is located on the West Coast of Barbados
in the parish of St. James.
