One of the best loved resorts in the Caribbean, Carlisle Bay is the picture postcard of chic luxury. Situated on a fabulous beach and complemented by its backdrop of tropical rainforest-covered hills, this really is one of 'the' places to be seen in Antigua.
Accommodation ranges from refined Ocean Suites, ideal for couples, to the larger three-bedroom Carlisle Suites and family-friendly Beach Suites. Throughout this property's interiors you'll immaculate, spacious rooms that ooze style and simplicity.
Carlisle Bay is also a great place for a luxury family holiday, with entertainment for young and old alike. They love children of all ages here; in fact, they're treated like royalty with mini-bathrobes and gifts on arrival, as well as toy boxes on the beach. Kids love the Cool Kids Club here, leaving parents free to sip cocktails by the pool, laze on the beach or indulge in a spa treatment at the 17,000 square foot zen-like Blue Spa.
Serious foodies must try East, famed for its pan-Asian flavours, or head down to Indigo on the Beach for fresh seafood and light and healthy fare. Don't miss Sunday night's beach barbecue, for some fabulous food under a brilliant canopy of stars.
Another 'must see' here is the resort's very own mangrove lagoon, historically known as 'The Old Road Fish Pond'. It is home to local wildlife, including some critically endangered species.
Add to all of this the resort's amazing staff, for whom nothing is too much trouble, and you'll have a luxury Antigua holiday made in heaven at Carlisle Bay.
