The Lanterns at Hastings is a contemporary lifestyle environment, created to fill a need for a high quality retail environment on the South coast of Barbados.
The complex hosts a mix of 30 shops and restaurants, and is the only retail facility of its kind on the island's South coast that is anchored by two major international brands, Haagen-Dazs and Subway. The presence of these two brands ensures that competition is alive and well on the island and that the consumer is allowed a choice.
The food court which seats 240, is an eclectic representation of local, Caribbean, Mediterranean, Asian, and European restaurants. The healthier choice of American fast-food restaurants, Subway, completes the Lanterns' culinary offerings.
While the range of merchandise attracts a wide clientele, the 25-40 age groups find The Lanterns at Hastings particularly attractive because of the trendy, contemporary shopping, attractive layout, and easy flow.
One of the features of The Lanterns at Hastings is the commitment to bringing a series of interesting and unique lifestyle events to its customers. The management is keen to allow local artisans an opportunity to display their products and services in delegated areas. This will allow both visitors and residents to benefit from the wide selection that is available on the local market.
