Sumptuous, tasteful and five star are just some of the words guests are using to describe our newly renovated rooms. The interior design reflects the hotel’s location. Deep ocean blues and the colours of sun-kissed sand greet new arrivals.
Pictures and prints by the family All 37 rooms in the west block of Coconut Court Beach Hotel were stripped out and given a completely new look this autumn. As well as an improved view of the ocean and new sliding doors to the balconies, all the rooms have new beds – we know how important a good night’s sleep is to our guests. New bathrooms, a kitchenette and new furniture and fittings were also installed. And fantastic tropical prints by Jean and Kia Blades adorn the walls. Jean is married to Charlie Blades, the head of the family which owns the hotel, and Kia is his granddaughter.

Five stars “We’ve been really pleased with the feedback from guests who have stayed in our newly renovated rooms,” said Charlie’s daughter Linda. “They’re all fully open and the response has been overwhelming.” One TripAdvisor reviewer, writing in December 2019, was highly impressed: “We just spent 15 nights at Coconut Court Beach Hotel in the newly refurbished rooms. The standard room block is now just like a five star room. Everything in them is brand new - even the balcony was redone with new lighting. What a great job!”
Bajan roots key to rooms Linda added: “While we work hard to give our guests a new and improved experience each time they visit, it’s important we don’t lose sight of our Bajan roots or the fact that we are a family-owned and operated hotel.” As well as a new wi-fi system (the rooms were part of the original hotel and the walls were quite thick) a state-of-the-art fire alarm was installed throughout the hotel. These rooms in the west block are now known as Ocean View Rooms. Many of the superior rooms in other parts of the hotel got a complete makeover too. All 44 of these were redecorated and have new soft furnishings. The Annex apartments across the road were not left out either. The gift shop was also redecorated and restocked. The restaurant and bar area was transformed and renamed Cocos Bar and Restaurant. We’ll be featuring these in future blogs.
