Barbados Celebrates Culinary Heritage

Well-known for its white sand beaches and turquoise waters, Barbados is also the birthplace of Rum, which has played a significant and symbolic part of our island’s history and culture. Let’s just say the past 350 years of perfecting ‘the art of rum’ makes us somewhat expert in the field!

Driving through the countryside, you will see acres of sugarcane lining the roadsides, which each year are harvested, fermented and distilled into Barbados’ rum. If you’ve taken a sip, you’ll know why it’s distinguished as the most refined rum in the world, as well as the main ingredient in some of the sweetest and spiciest tropical libations our rum-loving island has to offer.

O2 Beach Club & Spa' All-Inclusive Food & Rum Getaway is a culinary odyssey through gourmet meals, premium drinks, and special events and activities, including:

  • A 'Rum N Tings' Welcome Gift
  • Specially-curated daily 'Food and Rum How-To' Experiences
  • Sunset Barefoot Bubbles on the Beach
  • Sunday Afternoon Pool Vibez with Live DJ

With an array of restaurants from beach-grilling to fine-dining, O2 Beach Club & Spa matches top notch menus with top-shelf rums and wines every delicious day of your stay. Our pride in the rums of Barbados is clear from the local brands we stock at every bar, including Mount Gay and premium brands from Foursquare Distillery. 

To help us celebrate Barbados Food & Rum Festival 2022, O2 Beach Club & Spa will be welcoming Chef Eric Adjepong, who featured on Bravo's Top Chef and Top Chef All-Stars. He is currently the host on Food Network’s Alex vs. America
