Situated in the Eastern Caribbean and boasting a tropical climate and low humidity, Antigua is the ideal destination to soak up some exotic sunshine and beat the winter blues.
Antigua is famous for its wealth of white sandy beaches that are lapped by crystal clear waters, home to an abundance of beautiful reefs.
This Caribbean island is a paradise for diving and snorkelling fanatics as well as those who prefer to spend their days hanging back on the beach an opposed to heading out on the boat. Carlisle Bay is a stunning juxtaposition of a luscious green backdrop of the hills behind the hotel, and the crisp white and blue of the beach that the hotel look onto.
With a fascinating colonial history, the rich cultural blend of West Indian, African and European influences ensures a vibrant yet laid back experience whatever you choose to do.
Enjoy two of Antigua’s most celebrated restaurants without even leaving the hotel! Indigo on the beach offers delicious grills and seafood, whilst East delivers contemporary Asian treats in a modern setting. Whether you're a regular on the waves or a complete novice, take to the water and explore the island by boat and tap into the strong sailing traditions that the island enjoys.
Back at the hotel, unwind in the magnificent Blue Spa, made up of six treatment rooms, wet rooms and a sauna. Treatments on offer in the Blue Spa include some that are exclusive to Carlisle Bay.
