A Destination by Design

Blue Monkey Barbados

Built for those whose appetite for experience knows no bounds. A destination where every visit is different from the one before; where sun-drenched days run into unforgettable nights, the trade winds singing softly in the background all the while. Blue Monkey Hotel & Beach Club is St. James’ most exclusive boutique hotel experience — and as rare as spotting a blue monkey on the island of Barbados. Discover a new way to stay on the Platinum Coast.

A Legacy Begins

Since 2008, the Blue Monkey property has awaited the arrival of a new vision, one that would bring a breath of fresh air to the Sandy mile. Previously known as the Tropical Escape Hotel and Blue Monkey Bar, this intimate and exceptionally located property of unique character was acquired by developers with a transformative vision. The Blue Monkey is undergoing a complete renovation and retrofit, led by VARCHi Design + Build, which will transform our stunning slice of Paynes Bay Beach into a world-renowned destination for Caribbean luxury.
