There is also dock master and yacht maintenance services and direct beach access with beach bar and full beach service. The resort has just opened the Sandbox Tree spa, offering a range of signature treatments and retreat packages, using the highly prestigious and renowned Bamford Body Line botanical range. The spa is named after a distinctive tree that is indigenous to Barbados, one of which can be found right next to the spa, which is located in a corner of the lush natural gully that cocoons the marina. The design of the spa has been inspired by the beautiful surroundings of Port Ferdinand. It includes a manicure and pedicure room overlooking the tropical gully, treatment rooms with outdoor steam showers and a private garden. There are also two indoor treatment rooms and treatments can be carried out within the gully, in the comfort of the resort homes, or in a unique private seaside cabana.
Port Ferdinand also boasts its own fine dining restaurant, 13˚/59˚, named after the longitude and latitude of Barbados. The restaurant is run by Executive Head Chef Andrew Turner, formerly of Michelin starred restaurant, ‘Chapter One’, in Dublin. Andrew‘s menus use the natural ingredients of the four corners of Barbados and its surrounding ocean, in contemporary and innovative style, backed by an exceptional wine list. 13˚/59˚ is already receiving excellent reviews on Trip Advisor for its impressive menus and first class service and ambiance.
Luxury home rentals at Port Ferdinand for a one bedroom home start at US$950 (£658*) per home per night from now until 14 April 2016.
