The bright white furnishings and wood accents of Nikki Beach’s newest beach club in Port Ferdinand, Barbados, pop out against the vibrant blue ocean, sky and lush palm trees. The natural beauty of Barbados shines bright on an average day, but with the added luxury design and sprawling beachfront layout of Nikki Beach, guests will be blown away.


Located along nearly 1.5 acres of Barbados beachfront, Nikki Beach Club boasts unbeatable ocean views. Rest under your personal cabana or lie in the sun by the pool and swim up to the octagon-shaped wet bar. Guests lounge on catamaran-style furniture just over the ocean and take in the island vistas without having to rent a boat.


Bringing the family? Upgrading to a VIP cabana or oversized luxury pool bed gives you and the kids more space to spread out, play, sun and enjoy some quality family time.
