Carlisle BayOld Road Antigua,
There’s plenty to wow about at Carlisle Bay. Set on Antigua’s undeveloped south coast against a sweeping bay of white sand, green rolling hills and tropical rainforest, the 82-suite getaway fuses sleek contemporary design elements with luxurious beachfront accommodations, upscale dining and a spa that inspires peace, calm and contemplation.
Airy public spaces and guest suites give center stage to the island’s natural beauty with soft color palettes, custom-made, dark-wood furniture, stunning silks and original black and white photography. Guestrooms also feature private balconies or terraces with expansive sea views.
At Carlisle Bay, couples stay as busy as they desire. Relaxation is found on the beach, poolside or at 17,000-square-foot Blue Spa. Those seeking more action sign up for anything from windsurfing, sailing and helicopter tours to tennis, yoga and personal training. A private screening room shows movies nightly, while a beautiful library houses an impressive collection of books.
Brides and grooms marrying at the resort can expect hands-on attention from a professional event coordinator. After a seaside ceremony, a reception for up to 160 guests can be held at Indigo on the Beach restaurant or inside at the elegant Pavilion, featuring bespoke modern furnishings and large plantation shutters.
