A beach postcode, contemporary interiors and a peaceful spa area, the Waves Hotel and Spa has all the makings of a relaxing retreat.
This place sits right on the edge of a white-sand beach. Rows of palm trees give the beach a private feel, and the gentle waves are perfect for paddling. Plus, it’s just a 10-minute cab ride away from Bridgetown.
The property had a makeover for winter 2016, so you can expect a sleek and modern finish. Rooms boast little extras, like big flat-screen TVs, yoga mats and Bluetooth speakers.

Wedding at Waves
We have just returned to UK after 10 nights at Waves by Elegant Hotels St James Barbados yo attend our friends wedding. After a Virgin flight from Machester we were met and transferred to the hotel by St James travel after booking through Travelbag. After check in we were shown our room, An Ocean view junior suite. Wow,It looked great it was clean large & well decorated.a huge comfortable bed mini bar large balcony with fantastic sunset view of the Caribbean sea. Large bathroom with robes,iron,hairdryer and big shower with 3 shower points. The air conditioning in the room was very quiet and kept the room very cool. Aswell as the double bed it had a sofa bed, dressing table, drawers table and chairs and comfortable sofa and table on the balcony. You have 3 places to eat. The main restaurant open for breakfast lunch and dinner The food is a good standard and is buffet style breakfast & lunch and out of our 10 night stay was about 50/50 buffet a la carte. Staff are friendly and always efficient. The Asian restaurant across the road serves a nice menu. It is a la carte open 5 nights a week serves nice food but I found it a little dark and as un air-conditioned quite hot. I should mention the main restaurant and lobby is also un air conditioned and open so this too is quite warm when dinning. The coffee bar is very good serving nice drinks,cakes sandwiches wrapps and ice cream. The air conditioning is very good in here too. The included spa treatments my wife enjoyed during our stay according to her were excellent We received 4 each with our booking though I never used mine. The free watersports included again were very good with helpful staff. The beach though not large was very clean and we always got a lounger set up with shade and table by hotel staff who also brought drinks,ice cream and cold towels to us. All staff were very good with great smiles and seemed to really want you to have a good time. The entertainment was good and bar staff also friendly and good at the job. There are 2 pools one on each side with 1 being adults only. The wedding went perfectly and to sum up this hotel was very good value for money and I forgot to mention the free water taxi to other Elegant hotels it's great. I can recommend this fantastic hotel.More
What can I say, I let it slip that it was our anniversary at dinner tonight and when we got back to our room we were welcomed with a bottle of wine, some cake and a lovely message. What a special place. If you are thinking of coming here do not hesitate, just get it booked. So touched, thank you!More

A Holiday in Paradise
A wonderful family holiday at Waves. Recently refurbished you'll find a stylish and clean hotel with superbly appointed rooms and the comfiest bed I've ever slept in. Complimentary Mini Bar with Gin and Rum available whilst you prepare to go down to dinner. Staff are typical of Barbados, welcoming, generous, friendly and nothing is too much trouble, you'll feel welcome here. The Hotel is well served by three restaurants on site, Seascape is the main event where you can find a fully comprehensive breakfast to indulge yourself in. I managed three days until I had to cut down before I exploded. Lunch can be taken here also or the Kyma restaurant which offers a selection of sandwiches, panini, wraps and snacks. I recommend the Club Sandwich. Dining in Seascape offers a range of buffet and table d' hote dining. I appreciated the dress code. It's not stuffy, just respectful and I was delighted to see real enforcement of the code by the restaurant managers. Shiso is an Asian Fusion restaurant where a range of fine dining awaits. If this is still not enough, the Elegant Group of hotels also offer an exchange dining option across their hotel partners. Not the biggest beach but plenty to go at and remember this is not a massive hotel, there was never a shortage of space or equipment on the beach, the attended drinks service was welcome, and the Gent with the loungers & parasols works really hard. Watersports are High Quality and are included in your package. Learn to waterski or sail from talented watersports staff who will ensure your safety and enjoyment. Evening entertainment is very good. Barbados' best guitarist can be found here on Tuesday night, Michael Cheeseman is rightly revered on this island. I will return soon. Congratulations and Thanks to the staff and Management at Waves.More

The most perfect holiday!!!!
We stayed at Waves for 10 days and it exceeded all expectations. The staff are brilliant and make you feel so welcome, and also are more than happy to assist with any requests you have. The food at the hotel is exceptional and there is choice for everyone. The evening entertainment was brilliant, it was good to see something different going on every night. The rooms are beautifully furnished (I was had a ground floor pool view room) and very spacious. The spa is relaxing and the treatments were really good. I loved the fact that they did poolside/beach side drinks service throughout the day, something which I was not expecting at all. The bar itself is perfectly located, in the center of the hotel so the atmosphere is great. If you take your kids away make sure you ask Ondre for a vanilla and chocolate layered milkshake!!! I will without doubt be returning next year.More
A Lovely Modern Caribbean Hotel
We stayed with a few friends and had a wonderful time. The food was great and the cocktails were wonderful. Loved the SPA/POOl area. The decor of the hotel and the rooms are modern but very warm and rustic. We will definitely stay there again!!More
