On the Caribbean Island of Antigua, Carlisle Bay is a luxurious up-scale beach resort offering a chic boutique hide-away for those looking for a well-deserved break. The location is idyllic, backed by rainforest and looking out onto the bay where plenty of water activities take place. Family suites are cleverly grouped at one end of the beach to ensure peace of mind. 

The hotel has kids’ clubs with a range of activities, a great selection of water sports, including windsurfing, kayaking and sailing and its own PADI recognised dive centre where children over 8yrs can have a go. There are 9 tennis courts (including kid –friendly ones), a lush tropical pool, cinema room, library and 8 bars and restaurants (with a special tea time children’s buffet) to choose from. There is also a spa, fitness room and a yoga and pilates area and to spoil yourself room service is available 24/7.

Suites are stylish and huge, decked out with mod cons such as iPod docs and free WiFi. Family Beach Suites can sleep up to 2 adults and 4 children in 2 rooms with doubles/twins in the master room and twin beds in the second bedroom.
