This one-of-a-kind hotel blends the absolute beauty of Antigua with distinguished, understated luxury.

Laidback, friendly and packed with character, there’s no mistaking this as a luxury resort in Antigua, but one that doesn’t cater for pomp and fussiness.

All this makes Carlisle Bay one of the best-loved hotels if you are looking for luxury Caribbean holidays.

Away from your room, you can pamper yourself at the luxe Blue Spa which spreads across an expansive 17,000 square feet. Or, put your feet up poolside and soak up the ambience that oozes from Carlisle Bay’s every pore.

If you’re an active type or have children who need some entertainment, this is also a great place for a luxury family holiday. There are a range of activities to discover. A kids' club will keep little ones out from under your feet, giving you an extra excuse to relax in a way that suits you best. And adults can stay active on the water, explore the local area, or take a yoga class to de-stress and tone.

Dining options span four different restaurants, each with their own distinctive personality. Each has their own picturesque setting and relaxed ambience, so you can sample delights from top chefs in intimate, beautiful surroundings. And if you just fancy a drink, head to one of Carlisle Bay’s bars to sip a cocktail and revel in your own peaceful paradise on your luxury Antigua holiday.
