With the demand from guests to experience more whilst on their winter sun holiday, Elegant Hotels in Barbados is offering a variety of daily activities that give guests the chance to learn more about Bajan culture and experience island life with the locals.

Led by one of Colony Club’s chefs, ‘Bait to Plate’ takes guests out on a private boat to explore the plethora of sea-life on the reef before being taught to catch the best and tastiest fish.

The skipper will anchor the boat in the best spots to catch bonito or other local fish before returning visitors to the hotel to watch as their catch is grilled in front of them.

The dinner is then served Bajan style with rice, peas and plenty of Bajan pepper sauce.

Sunil Chatrani, CEO of the hotel group, commented: “As someone who was raised in Barbados, I am excited to share our wonderful culture with our guests. It always gives me a great thrill to hear from guests at our resorts that they want to get involved in all things Bajan. We know that the demand is there so we’ve formalised this to make sure that our guests can get involved as much as they like.”
