Richmond oversees redesign of Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados, inspired by hotel's plantation heritage

The hotel lobby and all 72 guestrooms and suites will be completely transformed with a scheduled completion date of November 15.

The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados is in the middle of a renovation project that will update the lobby and all 72 guestrooms and suites.

Design agency Richmond International is overseeing the overall design concept, drawing inspiration from the hotel's plantation heritage and oceanfront location.

The hotel will remain open until September, with all amenities, food and beverage services, and activity options unaffected. The renovation has been phased to ensure minimal disruption to the hotel guests.
