As a young couple we were a tad apprehensive about staying at a remote, albeit palpably beautiful, East coast resort... we left feeling completely blown away by our week staying with Joanne and the team at Santosha. The setting, the apartment itself and the Atlantic views are flawless. What, however, makes this place genuinely special is the people who run...

We stayed at Santosha for 5 nights and didn't regret it at all! We knew we were going to be far from the west cost and thought we could visit the island by taking the bus. Big mistake!! You MUST rent a car if you want to get the best out of your vacation! You get the best of the...

Santosha is a truly special boutique hotel on the stunning, unspoilt east coast of Barbados. Set back from the beach, where spectacular Atlantic waves crash in, the hotel has magnificent views of the coastline. The rooms are in fact luxurious suites, which are tastefully furnished. Each has a large balcony, and a lovely breeze floats in 24/7, rendering air-conditioning virtually...

We were advised to stay near the more touristy areas. We are so glad we didn't listen. Relaxing, breathtaking, quiet, exclusive, are a few words to describe it here. Staff are superb, welcoming and friendly. Selma treated us like family, love her. Roddy also was welcoming. We want to return, one day with our family.The view from our balcony was...

If you want to find a low key away from the hustle tourist area of southern Barbados, this is the place to stay. You will find very clean, quiet, apartments with views of the ocean, the pool and the coastal breezes. Pros: Clean rooms, very helpful and accommodating owner, low key, great views, nice way to relax and really enjoy...

Wonderful gem of a place. Great view of the sea and an absolute treat for stargazers. I could happily have sat on the balcony of our mid-level apartment for the week and just enjoyed the views and the stars. Well equipped kitchen, great bed, good air conditioning and excellent pool area. The honesty bar is well stocked with beer and...

Was there at the weekend, the view from the balcony is amazing. We were allowed to have a Barbie in the pool house. I will definitely go there for another stay. It is quiet and away from crowds, the view is amazing, the ambience is great, so romantic and peaceful.

Our week at The Santosha Resort was wonderful but it did not start super well. We arrived in Barbados on JetBlue around 1:15 PM after arising around 2 AM earlier in the day. We were tired, over-dressed, hungry, and very warm. We tracked down our rental car agent and received some instructions on how to drive on the left. I...

My wife and I have now stayed two years in a row at Santosha. We really can't speak highly enough about it. Also, please note that we are frequent and highly experienced international travelers, who have traveled and rented vacation homes in many countries. So we have a pretty good basis on which to evaluate this property. 1) Staff. Simply...

We (2+2) stayed in Santosha for Christmas 2016. Thanks to lovely girls at reception we also enjoyed our vows renewal in a local Catholic Church - they searched, find a venue and help to organise ceremony with Fr. Paul from Roman-Catholic Church. Place itself is beautiful, very local with most breathtaking views. It makes fantastic place to spend relaxing holidays...

“If you're OK with a few stairs, the higher you go (it's only a triple-decker, so 2 flights is worst-case) the better the view.”
