Galley Bay Resort & Spa

Cross the quaint wooden bridge to one of Antigua’s best-loved all-inclusive resorts, providing an impeccable adult-only Caribbean experience like no other.

The Galley Bay Resort & Spa’s three-quarter-mile-long white sand beach and 40 acres of tropical gardens provide the backdrop for a truly tranquil getaway.

The serenity of this tropical paradise is what really sets Galley Bay apart from other Antiguan resorts. Many of its 98 Superior and Deluxe suites and rooms are just a stone’s throw from the beach and the relaxing waves of the Caribbean Sea.

From the moment you set foot into Galley Bay’s open-air lobby, you get an instant air of elegance and sophistication in this idyllic Caribbean escape. Take life here at your own pace, with Galley Bay providing the perfect opportunity to decompress and unwind from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

The resort’s accommodation is inspired by Tahitian architecture. Dramatically located on the beachfront, the Premium Beachfront Suites have a different feel to that of the traditional Caribbean-styled Cottages. Gleaming granite, tropical photography, dark acacia wood furnishings, sunken living space and stellar panoramic views can be found in everyone.

Although the resort’s private white sand beach is the focal point, if you don’t want to venture as far as the beach, you can sit back and recline beneath one of the many palm trees or enjoy a refreshing swim in the communal freshwater pool. Animal lovers will enjoy spending time in the resort’s dedicated tortoise sanctuary, while the numerous nature trails and fishing spots are also perfect for being at one with nature.

More active types will be pleased to know there are ample opportunities to let off some steam at Galley Bay. With on-site tennis courts, fitness centre, yoga pavilion and non-motorised and motorised water sports, every day presents new and exciting opportunities.
