Barbados: Mango Bay
When the scenery along the bumpy ride from the airport changes from sugar cane stalks and rum shacks to Louis Vuitton and
Cartier storefronts, that's how you know you've arrived in swanky Holetown, Barbados. Mango Bay hotel's restaurant, bar, and
guest rooms all wrap a palm tree-lined pool like a horseshoe, with the west-facing beach (a prime spot for sunset watching)
front and center.
Dine: All meals are served at Mango Bay's beachfront restaurant, where local produce and Barbados's signature breaded-and-fried flying fish are menu favorites. At the bar, try the deliciously fruity (and potent) Mango Bay Special rum cocktail.
Don't Miss: Sign up for a Catamaran Cruise (included) to get a tour of the island's west coast before snorkeling with sea turtles; a guide feeds them while you swim in the turquoise water with your new friends.
