Luxury At The Coral Reef Club Hotel, Barbados

Luxury British interior designer, Helen Green Design, has designed and and refurbished Plantation Suites at Coral Reef Club

Following a successful launch of one of the five suites in 2003, the guys at Helen Green Design (also responsible for the design of the coveted Coral Reef Club Spa), were appointed to restore the remaining suites to their former Caribbean splendour at the luxury Caribbean hotel.

Each suite has a private and spacious bedroom and living area, wrap-around terrace with private sundeck and pool offering breathtaking views of the shimmering West Coast ocean and tropical gardens below.

An important factor for hotel co-owner, Karen Capaldi, was that the new-look suites maintained an authentic Caribbean living environment.

The newly renovated suites at the luxury Caribbean hotel embrace fresh and light with bold swathes of colours such as; duck egg blue, neutrals and rich greens on a base of gold and mid to dark browns. The main living areas embrace a Bajan theme. Sconces and rounded window detail and accents are made from locally sourced Coral Rock whilst much of the woodwork is in pale pine. The bedrooms boast feature beds; a sleeker and more elegant version of the traditional mahogany four poster. Furnishings are an eclectic mix of contemporary designs and elegant antiques. Leading off from the sleeping areas are separate dressing rooms, which are fitted with floor-to-ceiling lattice work wardrobes. The bespoke designed bathrooms are complete with rain showers, roll top baths, raised sinks and granite and marble countertops. Statement ‘his and hers’ mirrors are positioned either side of the baths to enhance natural light.
