If there’s anyone who can single-handedly launch the start of summer vacation season by gracing a magazine cover, it’s Rihanna. Earlier today, Vogue unveiled its June 2018[1] cover featuring the Barbadian pop empress in full Caribbean splendor—bathing suit, Fenty bronzer[2], ocean view and all.

While the glossy cover has surely caused a spike in Google searches for Barbados resort hotels, we already have one on our summer to-do list: Port Ferdinand in the village of St. Peter—a white-and-blue fantasy that would make an idyllic backdrop to any magazine spread—or at least your Instagram grid. Here, we catch up with general manager Bernard Sarme on the marina-front resort’s most requested room.

What’s the most requested room?

The most requested room at Port Ferdinand is our 3,700 square foot Ocean View Villa #103, which has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
