Recently named Tatler magazine's "Hotel of the Year", Carlisle Bay combines contemporary style with a breathtaking natural setting on a pristine white sand beach. Carlisle Bay Hotel Only open since December 2003 and the brainchild of Gordon Campbell Gray (he of One Aldwych London), its right up there with the most stylish resorts anywhere in the tropics. You'll stay in over-sized junior suites just steps from a turquoise bay; experience exemplary service in two wonderful restaurants ('East' specializes in Asian fare); surrender to the rejuvenating treatments of the 'Blue Spa'; and generally marvel at the attention-to-detail you encounter everywhere. Highly recommended.

80 junior & 3-bedroom suites. Stays here are on a breakfast-only basis (half board is optional), enabling you to dine at the resort or take advantage of the varied Antigua restaurants. Children are accepted year-round.

Curtain Bluff first opened its doors in 1961 and became a Caribbean legend shortly after that. Curtain Bluff Hotel Perched on a panoramic bluff on Antigua's, south coast, it spoils its guests with a choice of two different beaches (one windswept and the other serene), whilst its elegant guest rooms and suites are so close to the ocean you'll need little else but the views to entertain you. As all meals and drinks are included here, a club-like ambience generally prevails and it is this, as much as its exceptional facilities (complimentary tennis, squash, water sports and even scuba-diving, if you're certified) that encourages guests to return year after year. American owner Howard Hulford is extremely proud of the world-class wine cellar, so don't expect to leave without a personal tour!

72 rooms & suites. Stays here are fully-inclusive. Children accepted, except in February (restrictions for under sixes in the dining room/ bar after 7 p.m.). Its previously strict dress code has been relaxed and jackets are now optional in the evenings.    Phone (+1) 268 462 8400, Fax (+1) 268 462 8409,


Jumby Bay is an exclusive Mediterranean-style resort hidden away on one of the tiny off-shore islands that dot Antigua's northern coastline. Jumby Bay - beach view Now a member of the standard-setting Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, its world-class white sand beach is suitably complimented by world-class guest suites (think Italian linens, hand-carved four-posters and claw-foot bathtubs) and its cabana-flanked swimming pool would do justice to a glitzy Beverly Hills hotel. Days here tend to be tranquil and relaxed (although a ferry makes regular trips to the nearby mainland), whilst evenings are usually special events often spent in a 230-year old Estate House. Expect to encounter one of the low-profile movers and shakers that increasingly own private villas on this 300-acre island.

50 rooms, suites & two-bedroom villas. Stays here are fully-inclusive. Children are welcome year-round. (As the island lies opposite the airport, occasional aircraft noise can be experienced).   Phone (+1) 268 462 6000,

The elegant and very peaceful Galley Bay will appeal to those who like their tropical resorts to look and feel distinctly 'tropical'. Galley Bay It is strung out between a bird sanctuary lagoon and a splendid half-mile beach on the undeveloped west coast of Antigua; its low-rise buildings a blend of bamboo, thatch and terracotta and its two restaurants and three bars all al fresco and ocean front. You can choose to stay in quaint cottages with their own splash pools or guest rooms and split-level suites set right on the beachfront. The unpretentious atmosphere and attentive, yet friendly staff contribute to this resort's very high repeat-guest ratio.

69 cottages, rooms & suites. Stays here are on an all-inclusive basis. Children under 16 years are not accepted, except Christmas and New Year.    Phone (+1) 268 462 0302, Fax (+1) 268 462 4551


Blue Waters has been an Antiguan institution for over three decades, yet a major make-over a few years ago and continual upgrades ensure this much-loved resort keeps pace with modern trends and demands. Blue Waters Perched above two protected Caribbean bays and conveniently located for both town and the Cedar Valley golf course, its 77 guest rooms and suites, two restaurants (one fine-dining) and three swimming pools (the infinity-edge one is brand new) are just what people expect from an upscale Caribbean holiday resort. Rock Cottage is its luxurious four-bedroom private villa with panoramic views that tend to surpass most people's expectations!

77 rooms, suites & villas. The room rate is breakfast-only (half-board and all-inclusive supplements available) so guests can experience the island's restaurants. Children are welcome year-round.


The Beach House is for those who want to get away from everything. Everything that is but delicious Italian cuisine, 24-hour butler service and stylish junior suites (all white, of course) that are just steps from endless coral sands. Indeed, the beaches are why most people come to Barbuda in the first place, Beach House but The Beach House is probably why they come back again. And although all the little touches like personal mobile phones, complimentary massages and poolside Evian sprays are in place here, the lack of TVs, shops and nearby restaurants will mean the resort (and Barbuda) won't suit everyone. Bring lots of books and someone special. Also consider it as part of a two-centre stay with the Antiguan mainland.

20 junior suites & 1 one-bedroom suite. Reached by a 15-minute flight from Antigua to Barbuda, followed by a 20 minute drive. The room rate is breakfast only, but the lack of other suitable dining venues means most meals will be taken at the resort. Children accepted year-round.
