Carlisle Bay is an exclusive five-star resort on the undeveloped south coast of Antigua, set beside a sweeping bay against a backdrop of rolling hills and tropical rainforest. The resort is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World group and is perfect for couples and families looking for a luxurious stay in a chic Caribbean setting, offering fantastic service and facilities.
The 87 luxurious suites are all decorated in a contemporary style, located either directly on the stunning beach or just a few steps away across lawns. All suites have at least partial views of the ocean from the furnished private balcony or terrace, where guests can enjoy breakfast free of charge. The resort caters well for both couples and families, with some room types able to interconnect and others only suitable for adults, located in a peaceful part of the resort. Beach Suites feature a second bedroom for youngsters, while the Bay Suites are at the opposite end of the beach and offer the very best views of the sunset as well as enhanced amenities and butler service. All suites include an espresso machine and a minibar with complimentary bottled water, non-alcoholic drinks and snacks, while Espa products are found in the bathroom.
Carlisle Bay has four a la carte restaurants which cater to a range of requirements, from casual poolside dining to an adults-only option. Indigo on the Beach is the main restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, while Ottimo! is a poolside venue with its own wood-burning pizza oven, an especially popular option for families at lunch and dinner. East is an air-conditioned dining venue which is known as being one of Antigua’s best restaurant and serves a delicious range of Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese dishes – families are asked to dine early to retain a sophisticated ambiance for couples later in the evening. The Jetty Bar & Grill is set at the far end of the beach serving grills and local dishes with some tables found right on the sand, while two further bars offer additional spaces for relaxation.
Facilities at Carlisle Bay are superb and offer the choice between relaxation and activity. A pretty lagoon-style swimming pool is surrounded by terraces shaded by palm trees, a popular option for families during the daytime. The stunning beach is an idyllic spot where guests can relax on the comfortable sun loungers which are dotted along the white sand, with cool boxes containing bottled water and staff alwayson hand to assist. Small shops are found at either end of the beach, allowing guests to purchase local crafts without being bothered by hawkers. Non-motorised water sports such as windsurfing, kayaking, snorkelling and sailing are offered free of charge on the beach, while scuba diving courses for children and adults are available at the PADI dive centre. Waterskiing, wakeboarding and tubing all take place in a neighbouring cove to preserve the tranquillity of Carlisle Bay. For a luxurious experience, guests can hire the resort’s cruising yacht for private charters, beach picnics and sunset cruises. Active guests can also play tennis on one of the nine courts where coaching is also available, kayak through the mangroves which are found behind the resort or enjoy a complimentary guided hike into the rainforest.

Our Opinion

Last Visited By Jessica, Travel Specialist

The service was excellent with plenty of attention to detail. I especially liked that they placed cool boxes with cold water between the beach chairs every morning. The food and cocktail selection was also great, but the highlight of Carlisle Bay has got to be its beautiful and quiet stretch of beach.
