Having had a slightly stressful journey to get to Barbuda Belle, we arrived to the most heavenly place I think I’ve ever stayed. The attention to detail, the friendliness of the staff, the beaches, the turquoise water; it was all perfection. We were a large group of 2 families with 5 children, who also completely fell in love with Barbuda Belle. It is truly an incredible experience and the only negative was that we didn’t get to stay for longer. Thank you for an incredible stay, we will be back.
Literally heaven on earth - perfection in the Caribbean. Beautiful deserted island, exquisite cabanas, amazing food and lovely staff who went out of their way to make our stay perfect. I so hope to return!
Going to Barbuda feels a bit like going to the end of the world - then getting to the Barbuda Belle you go even further - and it's amazing. Totally on its own on miles of crisp white sand tinted with blush pink seashells the scenery looks photoshopped. The staff are amazingly helpful and this solar-powered boutique resort has all mod cons. Really, really sublime. Go at least once in your life.

My wife and I stayed at Barbuda Belle for 3 nights over a long weekend. From the moment that we arrived, we felt like we had been welcomed into the nice, cozy beach home of a family member. The one- bedroom “Frigate” bungalow that we stayed in was well-appointed with a large balcony, wooden floors/furniture, L’Occitane toiletries in the bathroom, and a large window that opened up to a splendid view of the pink sandy beach. During our stay, there were no more than 4-6 other guests, so we felt very fortunate (and spoiled!) to have this paradise largely to ourselves. Having traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean to islands such as Anguilla, St Barth, Grand Cayman, and Great Exuma we are not easily impressed by most beaches – but impressed we were by the beach at Barbuda Belle as well as other beaches on the island and other forms of nature more generally! Apart from the sheer beauty of the location, Barbuda Belle’s key asset is its warm and caring staff and the high level of service they happily provide. Caroline was extremely helpful in handling our reservations, as well as answering questions about the resort and Barbuda months ahead of our arrival. Once we arrived at the airport in Barbuda, the manager, Claudette Thomas, warmly welcomed us and accompanied us for the 10-15 minute boat ride to the resort. She was wonderful at organizing our trips around the island to places such as Princess Diana Beach and the Frigate Bird Sanctuary (many thanks to Scott and Rell for the tour!). She also checked in regularly to see if we needed anything. The food at Barbuda Belle was phenomenal, led by their French chef! He cooked up most dishes from scratch. Some of our favorites included the conch fritters, lobster bisque, lobster and foie gras ravioli, beef filet, the French toast, the apple tart, and the Chocolate Fondant (not to mention the breakfast pastries and homemade yogurt). Ann Marie was extremely hospitable at breakfast and offered helpful suggestions for things to do on Barbuda. The bartender Alexander made a wonderfully potent rum punch and was a fount of Barbudan knowledge. The resort also has a spa and the masseuse Afiya provided a stellar massage treatment. In short, we had a nice relaxing holiday at Barbuda Belle and look forward to returning to share this special place with our children and/or other family members!…
Staying for extended weekend of 5 days total, Barbuda Belle is the right place to be. A remote and secluded place with only eight bungalows but best service, excellent chef, confirmable rooms, very clean, with everything u need in a superb accommodation. A big wow to the view and wonderful piece-full location. If one is looking to relax a couple of days - definitely Barbuda Belle is the right place.
I think it will take all my writing skills to describe how much we enjoyed the Barbuda Belle without writing page after page, but I will try. We were scheduled come last year about this time when the hurricane devastated the entire island. We had already made a sizable deposit so naturally were concerned. The Belle offered to honor our deposit and give us a sizable discount if we would return at a later date. So we did. Presently the only way to get to Barbuda is from Antiqua (unless you charter a private plane). The island has a small but adequate landing strip and our flight took about 15-20 minutes using a small aircraft with a maximum capacity of 8 persons. Upon landing we were greeted by the properly manager, Claudette, upon arrival, got in a pick up with luggage in back and driven through town still showing many effects of the hurricane, and five minutes later we arrived at a boat dock. We had no idea we were going to boat to our destination. After a ride of 15 minutes we arrived at the Barbuda Belle and greeted warmly by the small staff. Our stilted college offered a large outdoor breezy porch, a four poster mosquito proof netted bed and bathroom with a wonderful shower with large fluffy towels. But the most amazing thing, besides the view of the ocean, was the food. We can only gush at how wonderful the chef was. Three meals a day were a culinary delight. If you are a foodie this is the place for you. I humbly suggest that it is worth coming here for the food if nothing else. The place is completely environmentally sufficient with solar panels supplying electricity and water desalination treatment. The lodge is beautiful with a fully equipped bar. There are big plans for the island’s future with a possible golf course and expanded international airport. …
We went to Barbuda belle for a day and had lunch there. The hotel was completely rebuilt after Irma and is looking absolutely stunning! Food was delicious and fresh, and prices were fine (1 drink + generous starter + main at $50)! The staff spoiled us and were really lovely. Barbuda Belle's pink sand beach is a must-see on the island and most likely you'll have an 11 miles beach to yourself. If you are looking for the perfect sea-view lunch, this place is for you!
Barbuda Belle is one of the most beautiful hotels in the world! Very private, with only 7 luxe bungalows. Views that will melt your heart. And a dedicated staff that will provide the highest level of service possible. From Jean Louis, your french chef, to Afiya, your excellent masseuse, the dining room staff of Gina and Ann Marie, the excursion and water craft of Muriah and Scott, everyone is focused on making your stay wonderful. At all times Claudette is managing your experience, making certain that her staff delivers. Most relaxing and reinvigorating vacation we can imagine. We'll be back!!
I cannot express enough how wonderful this vacation was for my wife and me! Like many of the hotel's other guests, we have stayed at many very high-end resorts as well as boutique hotels and our complete experience at Barbuda Belle tops the list. Certainly, the fact that we were the only people there for several days and, even when there was another couple at the hotel it still felt like it was our own private island paradise, helped make it such a special and unique experience. But, the confluence of quality rooms, an amazing beach and ocean, friendly and attentive (but not overly so) staff, INCREDIBLE food, and complete serenity are really what made this such a special vacation for us. While everyone we encountered were friendly and professional, we interacted with some of the staff more than others and would like to express our appreciation for their efforts. Claudette was incredibly professional and made us feel welcomed and special while remaining very unobtrusive (something we were concerned about when booking a trip to a destination with so few rooms and guests). Chef Jean-Louis, well, what can be said about having your own personal, world-class chef not only preparing his recommended meals for your delight but also catching them that morning! Another concern we had prior to booking was that we might get bored with the food on an 8 night stay, that concern was quickly dismissed when non-other than an Iron Chef, who was also a guest at the hotel, assured us that first night that we are about to embark on a wonderful culinary experience! Boy was he right. The food was beyond compare. Jermaine and Janice were both very attentive and did an outstanding job making sure we were well serviced and our thirsts were quenched. Ann Marie was exceptional, she is as professional and detail focused as just about any waitress in any top restaurant. And the housekeeping was phenomenal, Collette did an outstanding job of keeping our room in top shape. The guys we interacted with were great too, Relly, Norman, and Straight are very strong at what they do at the hotel. We miss Barbuda Belle terribly! Our morning runs on the breathtaking beach, bathing in the amazing waters, the welcoming people of Barbuda, and, of course, the amazing food. We very much look forward to finding the opportunity to return soon to our new, favorite place on earth!…
