With a beautiful beach in a secluded bay, a backdrop of hills and rainforest, four outstanding restaurants, an exceptional spa and a philosophy founded on generous service, Carlisle Bay, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, is simply stunning. The resort features spacious suites all with cool, calm contemporary interiors, terrace or balcony and breathtaking ocean views.This natural harbour in the most remote corner of the island, defined by a fine crescent of sand, is straight out of an ideal Caribbean postcard. Its emerald green waters are surrounded by forested mountains and plenty of swaying palms, with a small village nearby that consists entirely of brightly painted wooden clapboard houses. There's even the perfect Caribbean church on the headland. Best of all, no other hotels share the bay-it’s a captivating location to be enjoyed by Carlisle Bay guests alone.

Carlisle Bay remains one of the Caribbean’s most talked about resorts. With the proprietor's assured taste and a new General Manager appointed, the resort is firmly poised to be the pre-eminent hotel in Antigua. Home to some of the island’s most outstanding restaurants, guests are spoilt for choice with pan-Asian East, informal Indigo on the Beach, poolside Italian, Ottimo! – plus the welcome addition of adults only Jetty Grill, serving fresh seafood and salads by the shore. The hotel is home to the award-winning Blue Spa, as well as a yoga pavilion, tennis courts, a luxury film screening room and watersports to explore the bay.

However, it’s the magnificent attention to detail that further sets Carlisle Bay apart. From the orchid pool with flaming torches which defines the entrance, to the abundance of well-groomed tropical flora and custom-made furniture. Simple, discreet luxury is ever-present throughout the entire resort, making for a truly memorable stay.
