Carlisle Bay

All Inclusive 7 days from £2,849 per person Including Flights


Relaxing in a hammock tied between two soaring palm trees and looking out onto where sugary white sand meets the sea, a stay at Carlisle Bay is full of wonderfully tranquil moments. Nestled along the south coast of Antigua, we love that this oasis evokes a sense of serenity and classic Caribbean charm.

This gorgeous retreat is one that caters for couples and families alike. With a dedicated family area one side of the resort, and an area dedicated to couples on the other, both types of traveller can enjoy a peaceful stay at this beachside paradise. A wealth of fun activities are on offer for younger guests and teens, including treasure hunts, nature trails, zip lining and raft making, whilst loved-up couples can unwind together in the Blue Spa’s chill out zone, or enjoy a romantic meal at the adult-only Jetty Grill.

Our favourite part are the special moments that make your stay unforgettable. Whether it’s watching a movie in the private screening room or sailing across the turquoise bay, no day is the same, yet each day can still be taken at your own pace.

The plantation-style architecture offers a stylish nod to traditional Caribbean flair, married beautifully with sleek and contemporary interiors. Quirky and unique artwork and photography is dotted around the resort, whilst each stunning room offers incredible views of the ocean from their private terraces and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
