Things to See and Do While Staying at Fairmont Royal Pavilion

Fairmont Royal Pavilion offers visitors a variety of outdoor activities, which lively travelers will want to take advantage of throughout their time in Barbados.

This resort is within close proximity to the water, so its lack of a swimming pool is often overlooked by guests who can quickly walk to the beach for a refreshing swim. Truthfully, even with access to a pool, many visitors have planned so many beach activities that they never use the pool during their stay.


Those who play tennis should definitely consider booking this property, because the on-site tennis facilites are fun for all ages and skill levels. You will find 2 courts on this property. An evening match on their lighted courts would be a nice alternative to hot daytime play.

If you want to weigh all your tennis options, you may wish to compare this property to other popular accommodations that offer this activity, like Sandy Lane Hotel and The House.


Although Fairmont Royal Pavilion doesn't have a golf course on the property, you could try to arrange a tee time nearby. Golf courses in this area are Royal Westmoreland, Sandy Lane Old Nine Golf Course, and Sandy Lane Country Club Golf Course. The lot of them are within two and a half miles and the most proximate of the group, Royal Westmoreland, is just a short interval away from the lodging, so you can plan going over for some rounds on the links. There are 18 total holes at this golf course. The course is a par 72, with a total length of 6174 yards.
