Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Sandpiper sits on a beautiful beachfront with crystal-clear waters, just a few minutes' walk from bustling Holetown.

Rooms at The Sandpiper

The rooms and suites have an attractive colonial beach-chic style, with contemporary touches, and are scattered among seven acres of lush landscaped gardens. Every spacious bedroom has a private balcony or terrace. The Sandpiper's most luxurious rooms are the Tree Top Suites, with beautiful contemporary interiors, sea views and plunge pools. 

Food & Drink

Open on three sides to torchlit tropical gardens and surrounded by koi carp ponds, The restaurant at The Sandpiper, overseen by executive chef Christophe Poupardin, is top notch not just for its setting, surrounded by koi poinds and torch-lit tropical gardens, but also for its food: eclectic with a Caribbean twist, including fresh seafood and decadent desserts, and there are weekly barbecue dinners, accompanied by live steel pan music.

For al fresco lunches and sundown cocktails, Harold’s Beach Bar at the water’s edge is pretty much perfect and a hotspot on the island - this is the place to be for sunset views.


Visit the gym or make the most of the complimentary tennis coaching on offer before going for a dip in the beautiful mosaic-tiled pool or 60ft lap slate pool and relaxing poolside. Guests are also invited to take the short complimentary transfer to sister hotel Coral Reef Club to indulge in its fabulous spa and salon, where Natura Bisse products are used for treatments amidst contemporary surroundings, exotic vegetation and calming waterfalls.
