Harlequin's transformation to luxury Barbados hotel set to be complete in October 2012

Newcomer to the luxury hotel scene Harlequin Hotels and Resorts has confirmed that their latest Caribbean hotel, the H Hotel Barbados, will be launched in October 2012. The UK based firm, acquired the Allamanda Beach Hotel in 2011 and subsequently announced their decision to invest $11m BBD in order to renovate the beachfront property located in Christ Church, Barbados and transform into a breath-taking boutique hotel, ideal for travellers seeking to enjoy a superior luxury Barbados holiday experience.

Despite the fact that this is only the firm’s second luxury resort in the Caribbean, with their first hotel located in Buccament Bay, St Vincent and the Grenadines, having been operating for just over a year, officials spokespeople from Harlequin are confident in the prospect of the H Hotel Barbados and its ability to entice more travellers to book holidays in Barbados, “This Boutique Hotel offering will bring further investment to Barbados and provide more employment opportunities as well as bringing many new holidaymakers to this Caribbean Jewel” noted Mr. Dave Ames Chairman of Harelquin Hotels and Resorts .

Much of the firm’s confidence stems from the fact that Harlequin’s ultra-chic boutique style resorts stand out from other Barbados hotels offering, in the words of Mr Ames, “a completely different concept for the Caribbean”. Drawing influence from Dubai and the Far East, Harlequin has undertaken the lofty ambition to provide its guests with an uncomparable luxury experience during their Barbados holidays.

Vice president of hotel and resort development at Harlequin, Garrett Ronan elaborated stating, “This launch of Harlequins Boutique Brand in Barbados with the renovation of the former Allamanda Hotel, will bring a new ultra-chic, South Beah-style Hotel to the market. When completed, it will offer 77 luxury suites including 4 penthouses, an upscale martini lounge, a steak and seafood restaurant, a spa garden, pools and a gym. The hotel will offer a new level of anticipatory yet discreet service infused with Barbadian hospitality”.

Admittedly, this may not be the ideal location for those planning a budget Caribbean holiday however, for those who can spare the cash it may well be the experience of a lifetime.
