    Our opinion

    Galley Bay offers all-inclusive value with wonderful character in delightful natural surroundings.

    Hotel description

    Situated just four miles from the capital of Antigua, the Galley Bay hotel is in a beautiful natural location amid hills and fields. Galley Bay sits on a stretch of palm-fringed yellow-white sand beach, three quarters of a mile long and surrounded by lush tropical gardens. It is reached across a lagoon that is also a bird sanctuary. The Galley Bay resort offers high standards of accommodation, service and facilities. With only 98 rooms it has an intimate charm and cosiness, aided by its stunning beachfront location and gardens of exotic plants and shrubs. There is a wide range of activities available at Galley Bay. For active guests the resort offers complimentary non-motorised water sports, tennis, croquet, volleyball and a games pavilion. Further afield diving, golf and horse riding can also be arranged. It also offers the opportunity to completely relax and unwind, either by the pool, in Galley Bay Bar sipping a cocktail, or in the spa which offers a range of luxurious treatments, experienced in the tranquil surroundings of the tropical gardens near the lagoon. At Galley Bay there is a range of restaurants for all tastes, from the more relaxed beachside surroundings of Sea Grape, to the colourful, authentic food served in Gauguin, where guests may dine in beach cabanas. Guests may also experience Ismay’s which offers an elegant beachside dining experience (Please note that for Ismay's reservations are needed and a surcharge is applicable). Galley Bay offers a wide range of accommodation including the Gauguin Suites, located within the tropical gardens and featuring their own private terrace with plunge pool. Highly recommended and popular, however, are the Beachfront Suite which lead directly on to the sand, giving guests the ultimate ocean side experience.  Galley Bay offers a world of seclusion and, as it only permits guests over the age of 16, prides itself on the tranquil experience it affords its guests.
