BARBADOS, CARIBBEAN

April 30 – May 6, 2017

Barry's Surf School Barbados

We spent April 30-May 6, 2017 in Barbados for a full week of overseas adventure travel! We ran coconut relays, surfed, snorkeled with sea turtles and had a blast!

Beaches for miles, incredible surf and sunsets for days. Welcome to our signature fitness retreat in Barbados.

Our Villa

LuxeFIT guests will stay at a luxurious beachfront estate located on the west coast of Barbados. The eight-bedroom property, built more than 50 years ago for a U.S. ambassador, opens onto half a mile of pristine coral sand beach. It is situated on two acres with lush, tropical gardens and features a 50-foot pool.  There are multiple terraces, a living room with 14-foot ceilings, numerous relaxation and dining areas, and a garden gazebo with a wet bar.  The estate, recently refurbished with all the modern amenities you could wish for, still retains its old world Caribbean charm, which is reflected throughout both the indoor and outdoor living areas.

The villa is about a quarter-mile from Speightstown, the second largest town in Barbados.  There you will have access to any services you might need, including a supermarket, pharmacy, ATM, etc.  The villa will be our main meeting point throughout the week and most meals and workouts will be held there.

Fitness, Activities and Excursions

Sweaty training sessions, surfing, snorkeling with sea turtles, yoga and underground caves? Yes, please!

Although Barbados is known to have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and is a hot spot for all types of water sports, there are plenty of things to do away from the beach as well. Barbados offers world class dining, shopping, nightlife, golf, and tennis. Because it is a British territory, cricket, horse racing and polo are also all extremely popular. 

The capital, Bridgetown, a UNESCO world Heritage Site, is home to one of the oldest synagogues in the Western Hemisphere, Nidhe Israel.  Barbados is also home to the world's oldest Rum Distillery, Mount Gay, which has been producing rum since 1703.  During your retreat, you will have time to tour these sites or any others that may be of interest.
