  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to Antigua

    Luxury hotel holidays to Antigua

    Antigua, the largest of the Leeward islands, has a cosiness and charm that welcomes the first-time visitor to the Caribbean and yet has an ease and sophistication that makes it attractive for those returning for rest and relaxation. The island is home to a great range of luxury hotels and resorts including Carlisle Bay , a boutique hotel located on a beautiful sandy beach which offers a great range of activities; and Hermitage Bay , an intimate and charming hideaway which is ideal for relaxation. 

    Antigua is a low-lying island of yellowish green rolling hills that are gentle on the eye but it is the spectacular coastline of long sweeping white sand beaches, inlets, bays and coves that is undeniably glorious. The island is surrounded by a sea of turquoise green and deep dark blue protected by coral reefs and on the eastern Atlantic edge cliffs and boulders form excellent perches for pelicans. The cosiness of Antigua is enhanced by the cheerful villages with names such as Liberta, Tyrells and All Saints with their numerous churches and colourful gardens surrounding the gaily-coloured houses, many painted vibrant greens, blues, yellows and pinks. 
    Early booking offers

    Local highlights

    Cricket is the national sport of Antigua. Wadadli is the local beer. There are an exceptional number of places of interest to visit including museums, quaysides, old plantations. Some examples are Parham Harbour and St Peter`s Church, Betty`s Hope old sugar plantation and Harmony Hall, restored Great House with a craft centre. Falmouth, English Harbour and Nelson`s Dockyard is one of the most picturesque and beautiful harbour areas in the Caribbean. A few of the outstanding beaches on the island include Dickenson Bay, Soldiers Bay, Hawksbill Beach, Galleon Beach and Darkwood Beach. Carnival is at the end of July. Fig Tree drive between Old Road and Liberta is through the rainforest.

    Getting out and about

    The roads are fine except for a few potholes. Car hire is easily arranged and highly recommended. Traffic on a Saturday can be quite heavy in St John`s but you can find parking places. Distances are not too great so it really is easy to get around. Signposting is lacking and an ordnance survey map is more accurate than tourist maps provided locally.
