    Our opinion

    Carlisle Bay offers contemporary luxury and thoughtful service in a beautiful location

    Hotel description

    Carlisle Bay is a luxurious boutique-style hotel that is set on a beautiful stretch of white sand beach, against a backdrop of hills and rainforest. The hotel is part of CampbellGray Hotels, a small collection of exquisite, luxury hotels. The feel throughout the hotel is one of stylish understatement, created by muted and neutral colours and complemented by striking furnishings and exotic flowers that add splashes of colour. Health and well-being are fundamental to Carlisle Bay, and the luxurious spa offers an extensive range of treatments, such as the Citrus Drench body wrap that uses honey, shea butter and orange extract to hydrate and energise. Further facilities at the spa include a state of the art gym, plunge pools and an open-air yoga and pilates pavilion. The hotel’s sport facilities allow you to make the most of the beautiful Caribbean waters, with sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. Alternatively, you can relax under the shade of an umbrella by the side of the lovely free-form swimming pool, enjoy a film in the luxurious private screening room, or choose a book in the chic library. Carlisle Bay’s three restaurants have an excellent reputation and offer a range of cuisine. Indigo on the Beach is an informal choice that offers delicious West Indian cooking with fresh grills and seafood, whilst East is a striking contemporary restaurant that serves an eclectic mix of Asian dishes. New poolside Ottimo has an Italian menu featuring pizza from a wood-burning oven and home-made gelato. Afternoon tea is served daily and guests can also make use of the 24-hour room service. There are eighty-two spacious suites at Carlisle Bay, all of which have stylish and calm interiors that reflect the interior design seen throughout the hotel. The Ocean Suites in particular offer spacious, split-level, open-plan accommodation and a great balcony on which to relax. Carlisle Bay exudes luxury and style, and offers high standards of accommodation, comfort and service.
