Nikki Beach Worldwide is set to open its newest location in Port Ferdinand, Barbados this winter. Nikki Beach Barbados will sit on 1.4 acres of pristine beachfront and mark the entry of the first luxury beach club property in Barbados. The beach club will run along the shores of the ocean and will be elevated to ensure spectacular water views throughout the entire property.
Nikki Beach Barbados will offer the same look and feel as the brand’s other properties from around the world, featuring an inviting design of all white with wood accents. The designs will highlight stone elements sourced from the region as well as Caribbean features thought out by well-known builder Jada Group.
This intimate beach club location will consist of a restaurant, pool and beach access with oceanfront seating for up to 200 guests. In case of inclement weather, the dining space is covered with a waterproof awning. Nikki Beach welcomes guests rain or shine.
The pool will feature an octagon wet bar where guests can swim up and enjoy Nikki Beach’s signature cocktail selection. Seven catamaran-like lounges, each accommodating up to four guests, will jut out over the ocean for a unique seating option. Four oversized luxury pool beds will also line the dock so guests can listen to the waves crashing around them.
All white sunbeds and VIP cabanas will anchor the space where guests can indulge with Champagne, refreshing cocktails and delicious food with locally sourced ingredients. Nikki Beach will bring its sought-after musical culture to the island with resident DJs and musicians, featuring dance, lounge and signature Nikki Beach beats. An in-house saxophonist, percussionist and violinist, among other musicians, will create an exciting atmosphere that lends itself to great memories. Over 50 speakers will keep the property jamming.
An impressive runway feature will be present poolside for Nikki Beach’s fashion shows and quarterly “What Women Want” events. Various amenities will be featured on property including a Nikki Beach Lifestyle Boutique, which carries branded polo shirts and t-shirts, luxury designer clothing and swimwear for men and women, and towels, hats, beach bags, accessories, music and more. Showers and changing rooms are on property.
“Since Barbados is a destination that I’ve started to frequent recently, I feel that this location is not only a strategic move from a Nikki Beach business strategy perspective but that Barbados is an island where our brand can really make an impact on a local level,” says Jack Penrod, Founder and Owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide. “We intend to support the Barbados economy with job opportunities, and will work closely with local farmers and fisherman to bring our farm-to-table menu to our guests.”
Nikki Beach Barbados will serve daytime and seaside dinner service. Nikki Beach’s global dining philosophy incorporates approachable cuisine that is healthful, beautifully presented and prepared with simplicity in mind.
Nikki Beach is dedicated to using seasonal, local ingredients that are organic whenever possible to create farm-to-table dishes that support the Barbados community. The Nikki Beach culinary team will work with local fishermen to offer the freshest Caribbean catches. An on-site rotisserie will also be a featured culinary element.
While approximately 60 percent of the menu will feature Nikki Beach’s signature dishes, 40 percent will be developed by the property’s Chef de Cuisine with local flavors. Oversized, sharable seafood platters, impressive Nikki Beach sushi boats, organic chicken, rotisserie pork and ceviche will be made with a Caribbean flair.
Since the view is a spectacular one, sunset cocktails and aperitif style service will be offered between 5pm and 6pm at the octagon bar. With every cocktail ordered, guests will also be served bites from the menu. Our world famous Nikki Beach Mojito will be adapted to the region by using local Caribbean rum, and will definitely be a favorite libation.
Dinner will be served in an impressive atmosphere. Torch lanterns will line the property and underwater lighting will highlight the rocks as diners glance out onto the sea and the sea life.
Concierge, valet service and ample parking (both on and off property) will be available to guests. Yachts will be able to dock directly at the location, and water shuttle service will be offered as well. A pick-up and drop-off service will be available for VIP clients who come to the venue before mid-day.
Nikki Beach Barbados will be open daily for lunch from noon to 7pm, and dinner will be served from Thursday to Saturday from 7pm to midnight.
