Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Atlantis Historic Inn is in the fishing village of Tent Bay, St Joseph, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Its breezy location on the rugged Atlantic coast makes this an ideal spot to dabble in surfing and sailing, while it's just a short drive to bars, restaurants and shops.

Rooms at The Atlantis Historic Inn

The rooms feature stone and wood and are furnished with four-poster, king-sized beds and you can wake up to sea views and the sound of the waves. For a family or larger group, a cottage is ideal, offering two spacious bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a living area, coupled with stunning ocean views. This is simple luxury at its best.

Food & Drink

The restaurant serves up Bajan and Caribbean-inspired food featuring locally-sourced ingredients such as tasty fresh fish. The Atlantis Historic Inn's famous West Indian Buffet Lunch every Wednesday and Sunday draws in visitors and locals alike, and offers an authentic and delicious taste of the Caribbean.


Unwind at the pool with the backdrop of panoramic ocean views. Enjoy a poolside cocktail whilst lying on a sunlounger or taking refuge from the hot Barbados sun in a bamboo cabana.

Activities at The Atlantis Historic Inn

There is an array of activities on offer here. Being on the east coast, a rugged coastline is matched with epic waves and long sandy beaches, making this spot a surfer's paradise. This beachside setting means water sports are popular: try your hand at sailing or take a stand-up paddle boarding lesson.

Alternatively, if you prefer to be on land, there are bike tours, scenic coastal walks and historic Caribbean culture for you to explore.
