This chic, contemporary and luxurious resort is set on a picture perfect white sand beach, with an incredible backdrop of lush rainforest. Located on the undeveloped south coast, just 30 minutes from the airport, Carlisle Bay is quite simply stunning and it is easy to understand why it is one of the most talked about resorts in the Caribbean.
Some of the best food in Antigua can be found here in the three restaurants; East with its dramatic décor has a fantastic setting in which to savour the eclectic menu which showcases a mix of Asian flavours and ingredients, Indigo on the beach is the place to sit and watch the sea while eating delicious grills, fresh seafood and salad, while lovers of Italian cuisine will be more than satisfied by lunch at Ottimo’s , and lastly the adults-only Jetty Grill boasts another superb setting, overlooking the Carlisle Bay jetty and those clear blue Caribbean waters. The rich aromas of grilling meats, fresh seafood and a carafe of fruity wine in such a magical setting will create a lasting holiday feeling.
Guests at Carlisle Bay can do as little or as much as they want, but it is hard to resist the water off the beach at Carlisle Bay which offers the opportunity not only for swimming but also for Hobi cat sailing, kayaking and windsailing. Tennis buffs can polish up their game with some professional coaching, the less strenuous can slow down the pace with yoga and Pilates. One evening should be spent watching movies while relaxing in the private screening room. There is plenty to see around the island, charter a boat for the day, or take a guided hike through the rainforest.
For total relaxation, the CARA Organic Spa with a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills inspires peace, calm and contemplation, a wonderful environment for wellbeing.
Younger guests will be thrilled by the Cool Kids Club with activities such as sand castle building and star fish hunting. Crew Blue offers the pre-teens the chance to build rafts, make pizzas or ride on Hobie cats. Teens are also well catered for at Crush with its own chill out room complete with Wii entertainment and pool table.
The 82 beautiful suites with their contemporary design and cool colours, luxurious silks and crisp linens, range from Ocean Suites through Beach suites to the extremely spacious Carlisle Suites. Families will love the Beach Suites; set close to the water’s edge the two bedrooms make them a perfect option. Couples will relish the tranquillity of the Ocean suites, located slightly away from the sea but still with stunning ocean views. The magnificent beachfront Carlisle suites with their three double bedrooms offer the perfect choice for larger families or groups of friends. There is a large day bed on the balcony or terrace of every suite, perfect for winding down at the end of the day.
