“ALOE, spelt A-L-O-E,” Sir Richard Branson said as he stared at my sunburnt face. After a day in Barbados, I’d turned as red as the Virgin logo, so naturally, upon meeting the billionaire I asked him for skincare advice. A private beach is open in Barbados for travellers on their final day It turns out, as a fellow blond, who has lived in the Caribbean for decades, Branson knew exactly what to suggest. “The local people just cut open the plant. It really does work straight away. It’s fantastic. “Obviously the other way is just not to get sunburnt in the first place.” I was at the launch of the Virgin Holidays Departure Beach — a private beach club designed for travellers to maximise the last day of their holiday. Richard Branson flew in from his neighbouring Caribbean island Branson had flown in from Necker Island, his home in the British Virgin Islands, especially to attend the star- studded opening party on the stunning Brownes Beach. Joined by a host of famous faces including two Pixies — Lott and Geldof — top model Lottie Moss and Made In Chelsea’s Emily Blackwell, while radio DJ Maya Jama on the decks, I felt out of place slinking into the venue in my beachwear. Arriving at a party by catamaran may sound ritzy but having spent the day snorkelling and sunburning, I looked like Sebastian from The Little Mermaid as I scuttled past the stars. On the plus side, I was among the first to try out Departure Beach’s posh shower and bathroom facilities, where I freshened up for the shindig. Maya Jama flew into enjoy the party Lottie Moss and Emily Blackwell glam up for day on the beach As well as a shower before their flights, guests arriving at Departure Beach will be able to enjoy extra swim time, a bar and restaurant, plus a Virgin Atlantic check-in desk where they can drop their bags before ever setting foot in the airport. With hotel check-out times in the morning and most flights out of Barbados in the evening, the Departure Beach solves the problem of the “lost” last day of holidays. After an evening trying to look glam with the stars — not easy while slurping rum from a coconut — I crashed in my room at the Tamarind. I’d checked in a few days earlier at the beachfront property on the “platinum” west coast. The Tamarind Hotel in Barbados It’s a family-friendly destination, with a kids’ club and family lounge but also a tranquil adults-only area. There are two restaurants, a bar and three pools, and water sports included. With all that, plus views of the Caribbean Sea, it would be easy to forget the rest of the island — and you just might anyway, with all the rum tasting involved in most tours. I was booked on one with #1 Bajan Bus, on an old wooden trolley bus hosted by wonderful guide, Dawn-Lisa. Passing millionaire mansions sandwiched between modest wooden chattel houses, Dawn-Lisa explained why celebs from Simon Cowell to Wayne Rooney choose the island as their second home. The views from the room’s balconies are so impressive you won’t want to leave “We don’t bother the stars,” she said, “Bajans aren’t impressed by fame or fortune, we think of it as a job like any other. “We all know we could be famous, we just don’t want to.” After a slap-up breakfast at Tamarind, my morning continued to revolve around Bajan food. I scoffed a ham and cheese cutter (bread roll), popped into a bakery for jam puffs and other pastries, inhaled fish cakes at Limegrove mall, tasted tamarind ball and guava cheese Bajan sweets, then slurped down a “sno cone” from a roadside vendor. Dawn-Lisa knows better than to let her tourists go rum tasting before lining their stomach. The beach at the Tamarind Hotel The 350-year-old distillery of St Nicholas Abbey, where we sampled the wares, was bought from its English owners in 2006 by the local Warren family, who painstakingly restored the grounds. Opening in the new year, a scenic steam train line will run from the manor house and tasting rooms, past a lake and up to Cherry Tree Hill, where guests can soak up a stunning vista of the east coast. If the west coast is for sundowners, the east is for early risers.
