“Carlisle Bay manages to be the perfect hotel for everyone. While holding the title of our favourite family resort, the hotel also manages to cater perfectly to couples on a romantic break. For families, we especially love the beach suites which have an additional twin bedroom at the back for children. The kids’ club takes little ones from six months upwards, and the team of super-nannies go to great lengths to ensure that even the youngest clients are having a blast too.”
This luxury boutique resort is part of the Leading Hotels of the World and lies on a gleaming beach with a rainforest backdrop on Antigua‘s south coast. It’s quite isolated, which means lots of privacy, but it’s also within relatively easy reach of the action in English Harbour.
There are 82 elegant and spacious suites tastefully decorated in an understated style. These restful retreats feature terraces or balconies where you can relax and enjoy the mesmerising views. Some suites come with butlers who will be on hand to attend to your every need.
The hotel’s restaurants offer some of the best food in the Caribbean. Head to Indigo for your toes in the sand; East for fine dining; and The Jetty Grill for light lunches and drinks till dusk.
There’s a long list of activities and experiences available. As well as snorkelling, diving and sailing, you can play tennis, take a yoga class or enjoy some pampering at the spa.
