It is my privilege, on behalf of my people, to welcome you to the Barbados Elite Club. As an "Exclusive Leader in Travel Experiences," this Club will be instrumental in familiarizing you with the many diverse attractions that distinguish Barbados and position us as the preferred warm-weather destination in the world.
We Barbadians are very proud of our island, which we consider unlike any other. The magic of Barbados lies in the fact that it encompasses a little bit of everything. "The Rock," as the country is affectionately known, is rich in history but has many sides, both historic and modern; it has contrasting views from the west and the east from the tranquil beaches of the West coast which allows for relaxation and meditation to the awe-inspiring turbulence of the Atlantic ocean-waves crashing against the defenseless shores. And everywhere, whether brown, pink or white, the sandy beaches are simply breathtaking.
The very development of the Barbados Elite Club is testimony to our belief that travel professionals like yourself remain invaluable to our country and we remain committed to ensuring that you are supremely equipped to sell the island. We will ensure that you are rewarded for your efforts through the continued development of special initiatives to assist you in planning for your travel. This website will facilitate all your needs, designed as it is to be your best resource for finding Elite promotional offers, product updates and valuable information on all the many facets which make Barbados unique.
Thank you for your interest in our Club. I invite you to make full use of the many benefits which can be derived from your participation. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful island and making Barbados an ideal "home away from home" for both you and your clients.

Set amidst eleven acres of lush tropical gardens, the colonial-style Fairmont Royal Pavilion reopened in November after a two-month renovation and design project. New to the property are 24 spacious, 900-square-foot Beachfront Junior Suites with private terraces, perfect for romantic dinners by moonlight. Serviced by experienced butlers, these latest additions will join the existing inventory of 48 Oceanfront Deluxe guest rooms.
The late Major Peebles, who had married a Barbadian, and lived at Bayley’s Plantation, gave an area of land to the people of St. Philip especially and the people of Barbados generally, to form a park and a playing field for children. It was christened the King George V Memorial Park in memory of the late King George V. When it was initially opened, it was one of the main places of entertainment for the working class, for there were dances held at the park almost every month. After the change from the Vestry system to Local Government, it was neglected until it was taken over by the NCC, (formerly called the Parks and Beaches Commission). This park is still well patronised, especially on bank holidays and on weekends, by picnickers, and it is still utilized by the people in the vicinity on a daily basis.
I became branch manager at Maritime Travel at the Bay downtown Toronto, where again the branch soared. This was a 12 hour a day position and I loved it! Our customer was very much a part of my life, as the branch was strategically in a high traffic area along the PATH in downtown Toronto.
