With just ten rooms, it’s all about the friendly, personalized service at this boutique hotel on the South Coast across the street from the powdery sands of Barbados’ own “Miami Beach.” Each room is different—two come with hot tubs, another two with small private plunge pools—but all are Caribbean-comfortable. Little Arches also gets rave reviews for the pan-Tropical fare at the rooftop restaurant Café Luna for dinner under the stars. You are just a short walk from the fishing town of Oistins (head there on a Friday night for the village fish fry), and about a mile and a half from the restaurants and shops of St. Lawrence Gap.
