Barbados Singing Holiday - Relax, meet new friends and enjoy an inspiring singing holiday in paradise!! We combine fun, learning and relaxation in a luxurious and tropical destination. Luxury beachfront accommodation, all meals prepared by an in-house chef and two hours a day of uplifting singing all included!!
With a warm, friendly and supportive environment we have created an ideal trip where people can explore and develop singing whilst having a great time with like-minded people. Our holidays are for anyone who enjoys singing - whether they sing in a choir, in the shower, or have never sung but would like to learn.
The singing workshops take place each morning at the villa and are about learning new skills or improving old ones, they are about encouraging group singing. The songs are taught by ear so there is no need to be able to read music. The focus is on soul, jazz, gospel and pop classics, songs which lift your spirit!
The rest of the time you can explore the beautiful island of Barbados, take a walk along a white sandy beach, swim in the turquoise ocean at the bottom of the garden, or just relax at the villa.
Singing is fantastic for ones well being, brings people together and improves confidence. Our singing holidays are often life-changing experiences, an opportunity for people to do something for themselves and leave not only feeling relaxed and renewed but uplifted and inspired.
At the end of the holiday on the final night we put on a performance at the villa for friends and locals to enjoy. The evening culminates with a BBQ as the steel band plays and we relax under the stars to the sound of the ocean.

Swaying palm trees, white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, friendly locals, a rich cultural history and beautiful landscapes all help to make Barbados one of the most stunning islands in the Caribbean.
Our singing holidays are located on the west coast of Barbados in Fitts Village, St. James. The UNECSO World Heritage capital, Bridgetown, is just 10 minutes to the south and Holetown is 15 minutes north. Grantley Adams International Airport is approximately 40 minutes and for your convenience airport transfers are included in the price of the holiday. We will meet you at the airport with our driver and bring you to your Barbados home by the sea…
The calm and luxurious west coast on the Caribbean Sea contrasts with the rugged Atlantic coastline of the east. Between them the rolling hills of sugar cane, historic plantation houses and stunning nature reserves are ready to be explored.
In Fitts Village you will find locals passing the time in rum shops, the favorite pastime of dominoes being played, local fisherman catching fish on homemade lines and children playing cricket at the shore.
Barbados is a unique fusion of African and British cultures where an absolutely authentic Caribbean experience can still be had. The warm year round climate and average daily temperature of 30 degrees is tempered by the northeast tradewinds. A warm and sunny welcome awaits you…
Accommodation is one of the finest beachfront properties on the island. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and right on the beach overlooking the Caribbean Sea it is peaceful and private. You can witness stunning sunsets, go for walks on the beach, swim and snorkel in the crystal clear sea or relax whilst enjoying the breathtaking views. Supermarkets, beach bars and public transport are all within easy walking distance.
There are four en-suite bedrooms with both air conditioning and ceiling fans. You have the option of a sea, garden or island view room that are all beautifully decorated. Towels and linen are provided as well as housekeeping and night watchman. The delicious home cooked food is prepared by your own in-house chef and all dietary requirements are taken care of.
“I loved every minute of it and it exceeded all my expectations. From the first moment, I was welcomed into the Barbados family by Mike and Carol and felt part of things. The villa is the most beautiful place you can imagine and it is just a few steps from the garden on the sand into the sea.”
“This will rank as one of my best holidays ever. Great people, lovely villa and best of all, so much wonderful music. It’s inspired me to do so much more with my singing. Thanks Mike.”
“I truly found this an experience of my life which I would not have missed for the world. You have in my views got it all right; from all the initial pre-holiday advice and encouragement, the administration, location, the “staff” (friends), and your concern for each individuals growth and personal performance.”
