Wyndham Grand is taking reservations now for its newest resort, the 422-room all-inclusive Wyndham Grand Barbados, Sam Lord’s Castle Resort & Spa. The secluded oceanfront hotel marks Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ entrance into Barbados and will begin welcoming its first guests beginning Oct. 12 with select amenities, followed by a formal grand opening in early 2024.
“Barbados offers the perfect backdrop for a chic and upscale getaway—lush, tropical gardens, uninterrupted ocean views and an array of opportunities to unplug, unwind and make lasting memories with friends and family,” said Gustavo Viescas, president, Latin America and Caribbean, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts in a media announcement. “Wyndham Grand Barbados brings all of that to life on our legendary grounds, allowing guests to take a step back to practice self-care and immerse themselves in the beauty of the nature around them.”
