Welcome to the Lone Star Hotel

The Lone Star is an exclusive boutique hotel, restaurant and bar, where its British owners have created a stylist retreat. Here’s where Jimmy Choos are often seen, but certainly not necessary; just pack a thong, they have everything else you need to chill out at the Lone Star.

Four air-conditioned suites, with shady terraces overlook the dazzling white sandy beach. The suites decorated in cool contemporary style, a collaboration of Italian soft pieces and local Bajan mahogany furniture. Reflecting the Lone Star’s history, each suite is named in honour of an automobile legend: Cord, Studebaker, Lincoln and Buick. Lone Star knows how important a night’ sleep is, their clients fly in from the four corners of the earth, thus all rooms have enormous comfortable beds, the bathrooms are punctuated with Philippe Stark fittings, white fluffy towels, robes and fragrant products.

Constructed in the 1940’s, the Lone Star was originally a garage owned by car-enthusiast Romy Reid. At the time it was the only garage on Barbados’ west coast licensed to sell petrol. Reid, who knew how to repair cars, quickly became a popular local celebrity, and ultimately created The Leeward Bus Company, operating buses throughout the West Coast. Reid’s work-shop still exists, forming part of the reception area of the Lone Star restaurant. During WWII, he built a coral stone air-raid shelter, which today houses the extensive wine cellars.

The Lone Star restaurant, with spectacular ocean-front setting, is described by delighted diners as “a temple of cool”. The Head local chef and his team aided in the winter season by Chefs from their UK operation, “Prego” in Richmond, create gastronomic marvels in airy open plan kitchens. The restaurant has a breezy beach bar atmosphere during the day, and in the evening it transforms, becoming a chic canteen featuring world food with a Caribbean twist, including signature dishes such as open shrimp foccacia, tuna tartar and crisp blackened dolphin with sweet potato mash and papaya salsa, created from fresh local produce.
