We love our island, and we want to preserve its beauty for years to come. That’s why Bougainvillea Barbados follows a rigorous program of sustainability practices, both in and around the hotel. We are a proud member of Pack for a Purpose and supporter of Variety the Children's Charity of Barbados, which is dedicated to improving the lives of children who are mentally, physically or socially disadvantaged. Your trip can make a positive lasting impact on these children and their families; please consider saving a little space in your suitcase for a few supplies for children in need.
