Little Good Harbour in Barbados is an intimate and stylish boutique hotel which incorporates a restored 18th century fort in Shermans, a small fishing village on the island’s north west coast.
The focal point of the hotel is the renowned Fish Pot restaurant, housed within the original fort building overlooking a quiet, rocky beach and the azure Caribbean Sea. The restaurant is open air with a covered terrace and serves fresh seafood as part of its Caribbean and international cuisine.
The two and three bedroom Fort Suites share the same breathtaking views – each oceanfront suite is complete with air conditioning, a terrace or balcony, a four poster bed and a fully equipped kitchen. The rest of the accommodation is located across the road from the beach, where luxury villa suites nestle occupy semi-detached cottages set within lush tropical gardens. The one, two and three bedroom villas have fully stocked fridges ready for the guests’ arrival and all home comforts match the highest standards.
Guests can spend their days lounging by one of the two swimming pools which can be found in the gardens, swimming and snorkelling in the warm sea, indulging in treatments in the serene Little Spa, or getting out and exploring the island. While children are not specifically catered for, the hotel can organize activities from water skiing and catamaran day trips to yacht charters and golf to fulfill their guests’ wishes. Located just a few miles north of Speightstown, Little Good Harbour is within easy reach of a range of historic attractions.

What a great spot to escape on your Barbados holiday, spacious one, two and three bedroom suites set in lovely gardened grounds just north of Port St Charles on the North West Coast.
The Fishpot restaurant is a must stop for many food-savvy visitors to Barbados, so the luxury of having this on-site as well as the option to self-cater in your fully appointed kitchen you get the best of both worlds. Fishpot is located in the old fort on the beachfront, along with the Two and Three Bedroom Fort Suites which really do impress with everything a family or group can need – a home away from home yet with the bonus of being directly beside the Caribbean sea.
I loved the two bedroom fort suite which has a private barbeque area with a gate directly onto the sand. Also don’t miss the Little Good Spa, situated next to one of the two very serene and quiet pools, where you can relax with a range of treatments.
