    The House by Elegant Hotels - Adults Only in St. James epitomizes lavish luxury and indulgence from first greeting to final farewell. Nestled in the pristine opalescent beaches of the Gold Coast of Barbados, this couples-oriented resort greets guests with a welcome beverage and "jet lag revival massage" on the beach. Each couple is assigned a personal ambassador who has 1 simple task: cater to guests' every comfort. Visitors can soak up the sun on the unspoiled, private white-sand beaches while personal ambassadors deliver cold towels, fruit, and chilled beverages.

    The 2-level outdoor pool features a 15-foot jetted section and a scallop-shaped 36-foot main area. A 24-hour fitness facility is also available. Complimentary full American/English breakfast buffets, high tea, and evening appetizers are provided. Chefs at Daphne's have perfected an Italian menu with a Caribbean accent for seasonal lunches and year-round dinners in an open-air beachfront restaurant. Wireless Internet access is complimentary in public areas. Outdoor parking is complimentary. A full-service spa offers aromatherapy, reflexology, body treatments, waxing and various types of massage (closed on Sundays). Additionally, there are business services including audiovisual equipment, banquet facilities, a 24-hour business center, catering, and secretarial services available. Tours/ticket assistance is also offered.

    The 32 guest suites at The House by Elegant Hotels - Adults Only are arranged around an open courtyard with a magnificent tropical garden and sparkling pond. The cool tropical ambience is accented with a decor of immaculate white walls, curtains with sparkling blue accents, and mahogany and rattan furniture on floors of terracotta tile with straw area rugs.

    Guest suites are spacious, open-air private residences and feature patios with full ocean or garden views. Fine white Italian linens and goose-down comforters wrap guests in luxury. Pale marble bathrooms feature twin vanity sinks, and suites are equipped with minibars, refrigerators, and espresso machines. Wireless Internet access is available, for a fee.
