Overview

Backed by undulating hills and tropical rainforest, Carlisle Bay is a secluded haven that stretches along a crescent beach on Antigua’s south coast. This contemporary, all-inclusive resort appeals to couples and families with its spacious suites, complimentary kids’ club, stand-out spa and choice of restaurants and bars. The diverse activity programme includes water sports, tennis, yoga and cinema screenings.

Carlisle Bay is nestled on the scenic, undeveloped south coast of Antigua, offering direct access to a white sand beach with turquoise waters. You’ll also find spectacular hiking trails directly from the beach. V.C. Bird International Airport is around 13 miles away, with hotel transfers of around 30 minutes.

Carlisle Bay’s 87 stylish suites are decorated in calming pastel tones with dark wood furnishings and cream tiled floors. They feature a private balcony or terrace with sea views, and include modern en-suite bathrooms, espresso coffee machines, minibars and yoga mats. The standard Garden Suites are light and spacious, complete with a partial sea view. However, you should upgrade to an Ocean Suite for full Caribbean Sea views. Families usually opt for the ground-floor Beach Suites with two separate bedrooms, while couples prefer Bay Suites with dedicated butler service, a complimentary vodka and rum drinks tray each evening and a more private location along the crescent-shaped beach.

Other facilities

On the idyllic white sand beach, you’ll find dedicated family and adult-only areas. The calm waters are good for swimming and snorkelling, and you can take up complimentary, non-motorised water sports − including kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, paddleboarding and snorkelling.

Get active at the nine tennis courts and a fitness centre with Technogym equipment. You can also hire a mountain bike for free or join guided nature walks in the nearby rainforest. There’s a complimentary kids’ club, where children aged two to six can enjoy the paddling pool, sand pit, jungle gym and a range of supervised activities. Plus, there’s a creche for little ones (additional charges apply) and the Crew Blue Programme for 7- to 12-year-olds, which operates during the school holidays.

To relax, find a hammock in the tranquil gardens, join a sunset yoga session, lounge around the freeform pool or retreat to the two-storey Cara Organic Beauty Spa. Sink into serenity with a signature massage, book a ESPA facial or be pampered from head to toe in the beauty salon (treatments are bookable for a supplement charge). The spa also houses a sauna and hot tub, so you can unwind before or after your treatment.

Carlisle Bay is also home to a swimwear boutique, a gift shop, a library with fibre-optic lights and a cinema that screens movies every evening.  

Dining information

Carlisle Bay caters for all tastes with a choice of four restaurants and four bars. Set in an open-air dining pavilion, Indigo on the Beach boasts sweeping Caribbean Sea views. This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with grilled seafood, home-made breads, pasta dishes and weekly Caribbean beach barbecues. Plus, there’s a separate children’s menu.

Ottimo! is a popular choice for a causal lunch or dinner beside the pool. The Italian-inspired menu includes a selection of wood-fired pizzas, antipasti, fresh salads and ice creams. In the evening, you can also dine at East, which specialises in Japanese, Thai and Indonesian cuisine. Their menu includes freshly caught seafood, meat dishes and vegetarian options, all cooked with tantalising ingredients from Asia. Adults also have the option to dine on Caribbean fusion dishes at The Jetty Grill, where food is locally sourced.

Coconut Grove is the ideal spot for afternoon tea or cocktailson a secluded stretch of sand behind the main beach. You can also order a range of drinks at the three other bars, including the elegant Pavilion Bar and beachside The Jetty Bar.
