Discover a secluded paradise on the stunning unspoiled south coast of Antigua. Here you will find Carlisle Bay against a backdrop of rolling hills and lush emerald rain forests. Relax in one of the 82 ocean facing, spacious and airy suites or lounge on a comfy daybed on a private balcony or terrace where you will be serenaded by island birds and crashing ocean waves and fanned by pretty palm trees. The boutique resort offers a true custom experience. Whether you fancy a private ceremony on the beach, an intimate union in a tropical garden or a magical moment on the jetty, your Caribbean dream setting awaits. Four dining options feature local Antiguan delicacies and BBQ, fine dining with fresh local ingredients, Japanese, Thai, and Indonesian dishes and wood-fired pizza and savory Italian. Varied venues and menus are available at Carlisle Bay.
