Santosha Barbados: Quiet Luxury

I originally went to Santosha to write a blog about the décor. Santosha is the perfect example of seamless indoor and outdoor living. The décor is a marriage of clean lines and light colours with natural elements and dark woods however the main attraction in my opinion is the location, the views and the lifestyle element that it holds.

Santosha is the Sanskrit word for contentment and I could not find a more apt word to describe the feeling that overcomes you as you drive through the gates to the property.  With the rugged East Coast of Barbados behind you and the suites surrounded by lush vegetation ahead inviting you in, there is nothing left to do but indulge in the quiet luxury. Santosha consists of luxury studios and one bedroom suites, which boast wide verandahs and jalousie windows. Set in the countryside a top a hill you are afforded stunning views of the East coast and Atlantic Ocean from your room and the pool wherever you choose to relax.

I could think of nothing better than spending a weekend at Santosha filled with massages, lounging by the pool and catching up on reading. Stay tuned to the blog to see the décor feature on Santosha coming soon and learn more about them on their website or by visiting their facebook page.
