Barbados | | Tel. +1 246 444 2000 | GDS: LW | About Sandy Lane A first glimpse of Sandy Lane is something you will not forget. The turquoise ocean sits beyond the marble lobby, beyond the arch of the veranda, silky and aqua, calm and magnificent. Sandy Lane is set in an ancient waterfront mahogany grove on the west coast of Barbados, famous for its pristine beaches. Coral sand and a lazy breeze follow you from the spacious balconies of each room, to the world-famous golf greens, to the superb restaurants, world-class spa, heavenly pools and bars within. Every day the always genuine and engaged staff magically crafts the authentic Barbadian experience.
