When it comes to finding the perfect tropical escape, few places rival the beauty and luxury of Carlisle Bay Resort in Antigua. This idyllic destination offers not only stunning natural beauty but also stacks of local charm and spirit,  to make your stay unforgettable.


Carlisle Bay has a rich history that dates back to the early 18th century. Located on the southern coast of Antigua, this area was once a bustling hub of sugar production and trade. The resort's name itself pays homage to the bay's British naval history, named after the Earl of Carlisle, James Hay. The site has since been transformed from a sugar plantation into a pristine luxury resort. The property fans around the bay, where pelicans dive for fish and yachts bob in the glistening waters.


Situated on the idyllic southern coast of Antigua, Carlisle Bay boasts breathtaking turquoise waters, a powdery white sand beach, a lagoon and lush tropical gardens. The resort being nestled in this secluded bay, offers guests tranquility and privacy for their perfect getaway. Antigua itself is a Caribbean gem, known for its year-round warm weather and warm local charm as well as beautiful waters for snorkelling and sailing. The island's famous Nelson’s Dockyard, lunch at Catherines Cafe and sundowners at Shirley Heights are also just a short drive away but there is no need to dine out, with a choice of four fantastic restaurants at Carlisle Bay, each offering something unique at this slice of paradise. 


Carlisle Bay prides itself on providing guests with an extraordinary experience. The resort offers spacious and elegantly designed rooms and beachfront villas that open directly onto the beach or the lush tropical gardens. For those looking to unwind, the Spa offers a range of treatments inspired by the surrounding natural beauty. If you are a fitness enthusiast, you can stay active at the well-equipped gym and get involved with the various sports and daily activities available for guests.


With all the luxury, there is also so much heart found at this family-owned resort. A passion and dedication to making a positive impact on the local community. Carlisle Bay actively engages in charitable work, supporting local initiatives that benefit education, healthcare, and conservation. Whether it's contributing to local schools, participating in beach cleanup efforts, or supporting healthcare clinics, Carlisle Bay takes its responsibility for the community, embodying the spirit of responsible tourism.
