Carlisle Bay

Antigua & Barbuda

Idyllic beach life and nautical pursuits at this all-pleasing resort.

Cradled by forest-clad hills and right on the beach, you can easily imagine spending the rest of your days in Carlisle Bay. Whether it’s swaying in a hammock, the latest page turner by your side, or learning how to windsurf in the healthy sea breeze, there’s something here to suit every mood.

The rooms are stylish and feature wooden plantation shutters, high ceiling fans and a choice of garden or ocean views. Be it planning a private terrace dinner or drawing you a hot seaweed bath, the friendly staff are happy to cater to your every whim and we think the service here is impeccable.

The hotel has cleverly dedicated half of its beach to families, so find the right spot and your afternoon naps won’t be disturbed. For the more adventurous, there’s a plethora of water-based activities; sailing, kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving ­– the list goes on.

The Cool Kids Club is where children can splash about in the paddling pool or race off on treasure hunts leaving you time to indulge – a trip to the spa or maybe dinner for two on the lantern-lit jetty?
