An intimate Caribbean hotel set in tropical gardens on a beautiful beach.
In one of the most exclusive holiday destinations in the world, Blue Waters in Antigua is a fresh take on the Caribbean. Taking inspiration from the tropical environment, the hotel is filled with accents of blue and green and in the 17 acres of garden, exotic flowers and trees lend a pop of colour to the classy design.
Smaller than some neighbouring resorts in Antigua, Blue Waters’ charm lies in its intimate feel and warm Caribbean welcome where nothing is too much trouble for staff from arranging a sunset sailing trip, to a private champagne experience at the spa. Located just 15 minutes from the airport, the hotel has an enviable position where you could be dipping your toes into the warm Caribbean Sea minutes after arrival.
Blue Waters welcomes both families and couples, by intuitively understanding that families may like the option of 2- or 3-bedroom villas, which have private pools and indoor and outdoor dining areas. Couples will be happily ensconced in one of the many all-out luxury suites. We love the spacious Cove Suites which have light-filled bedrooms that lead onto private terraces and large, lavish bathrooms. The Cove suites have their own semi-exclusive use of an infinity pool that overlooks the sparkling Caribbean waters, where a rum punch can be ordered directly to your lounger.
The hotel has an all-inclusive programme which not only makes a visit to Antigua surprisingly good value, but its food and drink are excellent in quality. At formal dining room The Cove, you can choose between freshly-caught fish and seafood, often dusted with spicy Caribbean flavours, or a prime cut of aged steak. The restaurant has a wonderful seascape backdrop which you can admire during your meal. Will tomorrow take you on a scuba diving trip to marvel at the underwater world? Perhaps it will be the day you treat yourself to an Ila facial at the spa. Or maybe you’ll simply sink into a padded lounger on the sensational beach, powder-soft sand underfoot and inviting water just a few steps away.
