Set amid stunning gardens, this intimate resort offers impeccable service and exquisite clifftop suites.
This beautiful hotel blends modern chic and classic-colonial style, with fresh white décor and warm wood. Stroll along powder-soft sands to secluded coves and wade into calm waters for swimming and watersports. Relax on a plush sun lounger on the beach deck or by one of the stunning infinity pools that merge with the turquoise sea beyond. Explore gardens draped with bougainvillea and hibiscus and spot hummingbirds. The hotel has a great focus on environmental responsibility, too – it will be banning all single-use plastics in the near future and is the first hotel in Antigua to launch a refillable water bottle scheme.
Enjoy breakfast on the terrace, casual lunches and sophisticated dinners at the sea-view Palm Restaurant, plus superb ocean views at the clifftop Cove Restaurant. Bartley's has been reopened as a new pan-Asian Restaurant – it's open in the evenings on rotation, with popular dishes like Chinese Dim Sum and speciality curries from India and Indonesia. The hotel has created new kids' menus in all three restaurants, each with different options and themes. Carolyn’s beach bar and restaurant serves light bites, salads and flat breads for lunch on the terrace and the Pelican Bar does great cocktails. There’s also a casual beach bar and pool bar.
The rooms are scattered in blocks around the resort. Deluxe Beachfront Rooms are just steps from the beach and have been completely refurbished. The incredible Cove Suites and opulent three-bedroom Penthouse Suites are in a spellbinding clifftop location and have access to four exclusive infinity pools. For the ultimate in seclusion and privacy, opt for one of the incredible villas - there's the Pelican House where you can reserve a semi-detached three-bedroom villa or the entirety of the house; the Rock Cottage, a five-bedroom villa that is surrounded on three sides by water; and the huge Turtle Cottage which has four bedrooms and an infinity-edge pool.
On Soldiers Bay, 4 miles from St. John’s
