Hotel Barbados Launches with Great Success

Hotel Barbados - John Chandler & Sir Cliff Richard

John Chandler is a great friend of the company and a much loved figure in Barbados. John and his wife Rain, established a wonderful reputation for their absolutely fabulous Sunday Buffet Lunches and private functions at Fisherpond House, which was voted Michael Winner’s ‘Best Personal Restaurant Experience’. Prior to this, John was the Owner and general Manager of The Ocean View Hotel which was one of the Grand Old Dames of Barbados hotels, host to a glittering array of prestigious and glamorous clientele, Norman Parkinson, Brian Ferry and David Linley to mention a few. It was often used as a stop over by the residents and visitors on their way to Mustique.

Jenny and Emma Blanc were thrilled to attend the launch of John’s sensational new book Hotel Barbados: My Life of Discretion at the Ocean View, in the presence of Sir Cliff Richard, who has written the forward to the book.

The launch was held at Lancaster Great House, a beautiful plantation house which John and Rain have recently bought and refurbished. Much to the delight of their many patrons, they are scheduled, once again, to open their doors for the continuance of their famous Sunday Buffet lunches, wonderfully lavish functions and private dinner parties.

The hospitality of John and Rain in their new home, Lancaster Great House, will of course reflect the traditions of the lavish and grand entertaining that would have played a big part in the history of this lovely plantation house.

You may have noticed our posts on Facebook and twitter. Jenny Blanc was so excited to be involved in the launch and we were delighted to host a book signing at our gorgeous Showroom in Sunset Crest, Barbados on Friday 12th December 2014, where glasses of celebratory champagne and delicious mince pies were enjoyed by many of our friends and regular clients who were invited to attend .

    How wonderful it is to find John! My husband, Wayne and I eloped to Barbados and got married at the Ocean View Hotel on August 4, 1995. As we approach our 20th wedding anniversary, we just wanted to tell John thank you for making our ceremony so beautiful. We will always cherish his kindness and love.
    Congrats on the book John!!

    Kind regards,
    Wayne & Michelle
