The Carlisle Bay enjoys a fabulous position on the rugged and undeveloped south coast of Antigua. The hotel is centred in a long, sweeping bay with a beautiful white sandy beach, backed by the lush vegetation of the rainforest clad hills. The island’s airport and tiny capital, St. John’s, are both only a 30 minute drive away.
The island of Antigua is an idyllic place to spend a holiday. As yet relatively quiet, it offers splendid scenery and a wonderful climate where the temperatures are in the 70s to the mid 80s all year round. Although there is plenty to see and do at the Carlisle Bay, a tour round the island will reveal all the true magnificence of the Caribbean islands, hundreds of sandy beaches, hidden coves and calm clear waters protected by a fringe of coral reef.
The Carlisle Bay has 82 generous-sized suites, all having balconies or terraces to take advantage of the fantastic Caribbean views. Eating is taken care of by two of the best restaurants on the island, the East and Indigo on the Beach, and three great bars. The East serves a delightful array of Asian meals while the Indigo on the Beach offers grills and barbeques in a beach setting.
For a relaxing and pampering day, there is the Blue Spa. Within the spa guests can enjoy a full range of body treatments to relax and rejuvenate them. There are separate saunas and plunge pools for men and women, and, if the mood takes you, there are Yoga and Pilates classes on offer. Should your fancy be for a more energetic time in the spa, it has a state of the art gymnasium.
Another attraction for the more energetic guests is the range of complimentary water sports, including wind surfing and sailing. For the tennis fans there are nine courts to choose from and professional instruction is available if required.
Children of all ages are not kept out of the fun at the Carlisle Bay as they can join the Cool Kids Club. There is a weekly program of fun activities, all designed to provide enjoyment for the kids and a chance for Mum and Dad to relax, knowing their offspring are in safe hands.
