With accommodation to suit both families and couples separated at either end of the sweeping white sand beach, Carlisle Bay is a fun and convivial resort where everyone can enjoy their holiday in peace. All of the spacious accommodation benefits from garden or sea views, and there is a spa, watersports centre, children's club, sports facilities and excellent restaurants among the many facilities.


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.
