Barbados bounces back

Barbados bounces back - Telegraph: "It takes a lot to ruffle the waters on the dreamy west coast of Barbados, but recently ripples have been sent across the island’s swimming pools by the news that Sir Cliff Richard is to sell his £6m Sugar Hill mansion.
Upkeep of the six-bedroom villa with swimming pool and tennis court has started to get a bit much for the 70-year-old singer. He wants somewhere that takes a little less looking after. The good news, though, is that it will still be on Barbados.

TAKE A ‘GOLF HOLIDAY’ AT SANDY LANE IN BARBADOS

Image via Wikipedia Exec Digital: "Convincing your wife to vacation at Sandy Lane in Barbados is the easy part. Convincing her that the trip is a ‘family vacation’ and not a ‘golf holiday’ is the hard part. And trust us when we say that a trip to Sandy Lane is most definitely a golf holiday.

The Barbadian resort sports three of the most pristine golf courses you might ever ground a club on, with the design for two of those courses coming from world-renowned golf architect Tom Fazio. Fazio has received the Best Modern Day Golf Architect award from Golf Digest three times and his two Sandy Lane coursers, the Country Club and the Green Monkey, are a few of the most well-respected golf courses in the world."

All I want for Christmas is a long weekend in Barbados

Image via Wikipedia The Globe and Mail: "What could be a better gift under the Christmas tree than an envelope containing reservations for a five-night February escape to the sun, sand and warm waters of Barbados?

Leave Toronto on Thursday morning on a non-stop Air Canada flight to Bridgetown and by mid-afternoon you and your partner can be checked into a romantic suite at the Crane Resort on the south-east coast, perched on the cliffs above the pink sands of one of the finest beaches in the Caribbean.

After watching the sun set while sipping a Mount Gay rum cocktail, you can dine on Thai and Japanese cuisine at the resort's Zen Restaurant before retiring to your four-poster bed and a lullaby of breaking waves. On Friday, after an afternoon of basking in the sun, head to the nearby village of Oistins to enjoy the best beach party in the Caribbean.

Barbados: Sun, rum and `Washington slept here'

- Taiwan News Online: "George Washington slept here.

Among the hundreds of markers in the United States that make that claim about the first president, the most curious is here on Barbados, the easternmost Caribbean island, off the coast of Venezuela, which Washington visited in 1751.

Rihanna Brings Barbados Bliss To 'Good Morning America' -

MTV: "NEW YORK — Nearly one year to the day since the release of her brooding Rated R, Rihanna has softened her hard edges and surrendered the warrior pose for a relaxed island twirl.

So on Wednesday morning (November 17), the Caribbean beauty decided to give fans a taste of what Barbados bliss sounds like, performing the hit singles during a one-two punch of a set on ABC's 'Good Morning America.'"

Barbados a baby-friendly holiday destination for Martin Roberts

mirror.co.uk: "'You've come on holiday with your baby?' asked the man lounging by the pool, as he spluttered into his freshly-mixed rum punch.
Pointing to my four-month-old, Megan, he continued 'Are you mad?' She simply smiled and gurgled in response.

Rihanna: 'Barbados Prime Minister Was A Great Man'

Contactmusic News: "RIHANNA has paid tribute to Barbados' late Prime Minister DAVID THOMPSON, branding him 'irreplaceable'.
The singer wept at Thompson's funeral in her home country on Wednesday (03Nov10) as she bade an emotional farewell to the politician, who lost his year-long battle with cancer aged 48.
And she has been left devastated by the tragedy - especially as Thompson only took office in January 2008.
She tells Britain's The Sun, 'He was a really dear friend of mine. It just sucks he didn't have enough time to really show Barbados what he was made of and all that he could have done.
'Just to be with his family, his friends, people that love him... it felt like it was the worst person it could happen to. He was a great man, great for the country.
'He was great to everyone that he knew, there's not one person that hates or hated this man. He is irreplaceable... It was very upsetting.'"

Rihanna didn't show up to Barbados P.M.'s funeral- some Bajans outraged

Rihanna didn't show up to P.M.'s funeral- some Bajans outraged: "Ms Fenty please do the right thing, show your appreciation and respect to a fellow Combermerian and Prime Minister who took a lot of criticism for how he treated you. May the family of our late Prime David Thompson find comfort that he lived by the creed “Dulce et Decorum Pro Patria Mori.” (Horace: It is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country.)
