Everyone loves to travel during the holidays, especially to places with warmth. If you’re looking to vacation in the Caribbean this winter, look no further. Global luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand Nikki Beach Worldwide has announced its latest project, Nikki Beach Barbados, coming to Port Ferdinand, Barbados this winter.
Nikki Beach Barbados sits on 1.4 acres of pristine beachfront and marks the entry of the first luxury beach club property in Barbados. The beach club runs along the shores of the ocean and is elevated to ensure spectacular water views throughout the entire property.
“Since Barbados is a destination that I’ve started to frequent recently, I feel that this location is not only a strategic move from a Nikki Beach business strategy perspective but that Barbados is an island where our brand can really make an impact on a local level,” says Jack Penrod, Founder and Owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide. “We intend to support the Barbados economy with job opportunities, and will work closely with local farmers and fisherman to bring our farm-to-table menu to our guests.”
Nikki Beach Barbados offers the same look and feel as the other properties from around the world, featuring an inviting design of all-white with wood accents. The designs will highlight stone elements sourced from the region as well as Caribbean features thought out by the well-known builder, Jada Group.
The intimate beach club will consist of a restaurant, pool and beach access with oceanfront seating. In case of inclement weather, the dining space is covered with a waterproof awning.
The pool features an octagon wet bar where guests can swim up and enjoy Nikki Beach’s signature cocktail selection. Seven catamaran-like lounges will jut out over the ocean for a unique seating option. Four oversized luxury pool beds will also line the dock so guests can listen to the waves crashing around them.
An impressive runway feature will be present poolside for Nikki Beach’s fashion shows and quarterly “What Women Want” events. Various amenities will be featured on the property including a Nikki Beach Lifestyle Boutique, which carries branded polo shirts and t-shirts, luxury designer clothing and swimwear for men and women, and towels, hats, beach bags, accessories, music and more. Showers and changing rooms are also on the property.
Nikki Beach is dedicated to using seasonal, local ingredients that are organic whenever possible to create farm-to-table dishes that support the Barbados community. The Nikki Beach culinary team will work with local fishermen to offer the freshest Caribbean catches. An on-site rotisserie will also be a featured culinary element.
While approximately 60 percent of the menu will feature Nikki Beach’s signature dishes, 40 percent will be developed by the property’s Chef de Cuisine with local flavors. Oversized, shareable seafood platters, impressive Nikki Beach sushi boats, organic chicken, rotisserie pork and ceviche will be made with a Caribbean flair.
Nikki Beach Barbados will be open daily for lunch from noon to 7 p.m., and dinner will be served from Thursday to Saturday from 7pm to midnight.
