Carlisle Bay is a leading luxury resort located on the beautiful coast of southern Antigua, where shady palms meet the white sands. The calm bay is ideal for safe swimming and peaceful non-motorised watersports; while the bay next door is the place for more active pursuits. Behind authentic Caribbean shuttered windows lie a range of luxurious, well-equipped suites designed to please either couples or families, and the resort has an excellent range of facilities not to mention a fantastic, dedicated staff.
The 82 suites are all bright and contemporary, with sea-views and floor-to-ceiling windows. All are equipped with air-conditioning and ceiling fans, as well as media systems and luxurious bathrooms and amenities. The suites are in six categories and are aimed at different types of travellers: Garden Suites and Ocean suites can interconnect if you are travelling as two self-sufficient units; Beach Balcony and Beach Terrace Suites are aimed at families who want to stay together, with a master bedroom and additional twin room; and Carlisle Suites are larger, with three bedrooms and living space to include a living room and kitchen. The indulgent and romantic Bay Suites, on the other hand, are hidden away at the other end of the beach, right on the white sands, and adjacent to the jetty which is perfect for romantic candlelit dinners organised by your very own private butler.
In addition to the practical accommodation and dining options, Carlisle Bay's Cool Kids Club has a play area with a sandpit and pool and provides daily activities. Children between the ages of six months and six years will receive high quality care, and older children have the opportunity to enjoy activities including arts, sports and lizard hunts. The cinema also shows daily children's films. Older children and teenagers will be kept occupied, respectively, by the Crew Blue and Crush programmes.
FOR WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
Carlisle Bay can organise weddings of any size and its perfect beach provides a dream wedding setting. The restaurants can all be booked privately for events and Coconut Grove is an atmospheric beachside venue ideal for torch-lit celebrations. The wedding planner team can take care of all the details. Honeymooners are very welcome; the new Bay Suites were created specifically for couples wanting peace, privacy and private butler service.
MINDFULNESS & YOGA RETREATS
New in 2021, Carlisle Bay will be offering exclusive mindfulness retreats in October, November and December. Led by expert mindfulness coaches, holistic health practitioners and yoga instructors, the retreats will promote inner peace and relaxation while also helping to build resilience and reduce stress and anxiety. This is the perfect post-pandemic retreat with yoga practice suitable for all levels combined with Qigong, breathing exercises and mindfulness meditation. You may also book individual treatments with Zoe Nash, Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, such as acupuncture, myofascial release and Chi Nei Tsang, at additional cost. All classes take place in the morning and late afternoon, leaving you several hours each day to enjoy the beauty of Carlisle Bay. Spend your days walking on the beach, immersing yourself in the excellent spa and perhaps taking a dip in the Caribbean Sea. Alternatively, if raising your heart rate would do you good, there are plenty of water-based activities, six tennis courts and a gym to keep you occupied.
