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.

However, the property will be closed for the more invasive part of the renovation, from late September to mid-November 2017.

The newly renovated Fairmont Royal Pavilion is scheduled to reopen on November 12, and the project will wrap up three days later. The hotel's restaurant will be renovated in summer 2018.
