Carlisle Bay Hotel, Antigua

The rich green rainforest tumbles down the rolling hillside and, as it meets a crescent of white sand fringing a sparkling lagoon, you’ll discover your resort.

The name Antigua is synonymous with rustling palm trees, welcomingly warm waters and fine white sand. At Carlisle Bay you’ll find the concept has been taken to new levels of luxury and style.

Set on one of the most desirable lagoon bays on the whole of the island, the resort follows the natural sweep of the crescent-shaped beach, so all suites have an uninterrupted (and unrivalled) view across the water. There’s a yachting jetty and an inlet to be explored, leading to a mangrove – the preserve of heron and crane.

And, of course, the beach is irresistible. But there’s more; water sports, a kids’ club and activities, eco adventure tours, swimming with stingrays, helicopter tours to Montserrat…

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
