One hotelier has taken the risk and invested millions of dollars in Barbados to transform and rebrand ahead of the 2017 Winter season.

Bougainvillea Beach Resort is now ‘Bougainvillea Barbados’.

The multi-million dollar renovation project has sought to cover all bases as contractors and owners worked to not only change the look and feel of the hotel but the experience and atmosphere as well.

The family-owned beachfront resort includes a recreation of indoor and outdoor spaces. The suites have new furniture and soft furnishings, fixtures, fittings, lighting and bathrooms which create a totally new aesthetic and ambiance which are more in line with the expectations of today’s generation of luxury travellers.

Recognising that the millennial traveller is becoming one of the popular demographics, Bougainvillea Barbados is promising to be different.

Sales and Marketing Manager, Bougainvillea Barbados, Jamal Griffith in a press release today said that clients will notice the difference from the front desk.

"Our lobby offers a redesigned arrival experience in an inviting setting.  As always, these developments are our response to guest feedback and market trends, as we anticipate the wishes of our valued guests.

"Our design team headed by Dagny Bain of dB Interiors collaborated with Michael Gomes of  Architectural firm - Michael Gomes Associates to create a locally-inspired yet modern, international design. This new design vision weaves together a soothing, natural colour palette with rich elements from nature to create an immediate and lasting impression."

Rebranded Bougainvillea Barbados, the island has played a big role in the new design. 

"dB Interiors’ design concepts were inspired by modern Barbadian culture and the island’s lush landscape to create a tranquil oasis... Thoughtful design touches including luxurious comfortable sofas, hand-crafted mango wood tables and historical photos pay homage to the colourful culture inherent to Barbados," he explained.

The extensive renovations for the hotel’s public spaces include a reimagined lobby, new guest services and concierge areas, a guest hospitality room, an exclusive group arrival lounge, as well as a luxurious spa and wellness center. Guests will arrive via a landscaped porte-cochere at the front of the resort. The new pool deck even features a swim-up pool bar. 

Working with local farmers and building on the farm to table nutritious concept, the hotel will offer not only Asia-Pacific inspired cuisine, but a taste of Barbados too, with a Bajan buffet breakfast.

The now reopened Bougainvillea Barbados is appealing to tourists while seeking to continue to boost the Barbados economy as it commits to continuing to work with locals at almost every level.
