Cove Spring House

Welcome to the Lap of Luxury

Cove Spring House is the most coveted vacation home on Barbados; unique in its prime Platinum Coast location, atop coral stone cliffs which wrap around its own secluded beach; sumptuous in its stunningly furnished interiors; intimate, private and secure in its magnificent walled and manicured gardens; architecturally designed for aesthetic all-day, outdoor living, entertaining and relaxing.

Many houses in Barbados are built at the water’s edge of the island’s all-public beaches. But the natural coral stone cliff on which Cove Spring sits, encloses a safe, picture postcard sandy beach, protected by an offshore reef.

The half-moon shaped fresh water swimming pool and adjoining spa is ringed with Balinese loungers and tropical planting.

A meandering terrace to the water’s edge offers secluded day beds, shaded by palms, or sun-deck loungers with wrap-over umbrellas.

A garden gazebo and chef station for al fresco lunches or butler-served pool snacks and attentive staff to replenish your glass.

Every great house has its admirers. Among those who have rented Cove Spring House are Oscar winners, supermodels, captains of industry and Forbes List financiers. The absolute privacy, superlative luxury and five-star attention appeals to discerning guests.

Ten air conditioned en suite bedrooms with hand-picked Ralph Lauren furnishings can accommodate a party of up to 20.

Expansive verandas furnished with sofas and armchairs and cooled by ceiling fans offer a dozen private spots to while away an afternoon
reading. And the house comes equipped with a private cinema, a library, a staff of 16 and a fully equipped gym.

Sunset bar Chopstix caters to lovers of Asian fusion. In addition to the tantalizing cuisine, the setting of this contemporary bar offers a mesmerizing view of the hotel’s centerpiece, its landscaped meandering pools, softly lit for evening enjoyment.

There is also a beachside restaurant, Drifters, which offers more casual dining. It also offers guests the opportunity to savour breakfast and lunch in a relaxed setting whilst taking in the beauty of the Caribbean Sea.
