Glitter Bay lies on one of the most beguiling of all Caribbean shorelines - the famous West Coast of Barbados, in the parish of St. James. In the 1930s, the property was acquired by Sir Edward Cunard, a member of the famous shipping family. It was he who built the Great House which played host to celebrities and members of British aristocracy in that halcyon era. They made Glitter Bay a byword for refined, relaxing holidays, where guests strolled through landscaped gardens awash with tropical flowers, admiring a beach house modeled on the family palazzo in Venice. Today Glitter Bay recaptures the style and gracious living for this glorious past. The Great House provides an elegant reception with colonnade of luxury shops and an art gallery. . Glitter Bay enhances this exclusive atmosphere with charming Andalucian-style architecture, white stucco walls and Spanish clay tile roofs. The beachside pavilion houses an inviting cocktail bar and restaurant. There are two freshwater swimming pools, linked by a cascading waterfall and picturesque footbridge; a half mile of white sandy beach; floodlit tennis courts; residents lounge; and fitness/massage center. Guest of Glitter Bay and neighboring Royal Pavilion enjoy full signing privileges at both hotels, including three exceptional restaurants. Glitter Bay's design is a triumph of understated elegance and a subtle blending of modern architecture set in a mature natural surrounding.
