With its powder-soft sands and incredible offerings for children, we adore Carlisle Bay in Antigua as a family holiday destination. We’re delighted to say they’re one of the featured hotels in our Holiday Sale for 2019 and as a result we wanted to share five reasons why we love this dreamy Caribbean resort so much…
1. They’re award-winners!
In 2018, Carlisle Bay won the Best Long-Haul Hotel for Families category at the Family Traveller Awards, with judges impressive with its extensive range of activities for kids of all ages. Who are we to argue?
2. The kids’ club is brilliant
The Family Traveller Awards’ judges were right – their Cool Kids Club really is fantastic. What’s unique is they offer something for children of every age group, so babies and toddlers can splash around in the shallow swimming pool, those a little older can try their hand at watersports or tennis and teens can chill out with popcorn in the resort’s movie screening room.
3. Its beach is great
Carlisle Bay has that perfect combination of emerald green jungle giving way to a secluded sandy curve lapped by limpid blue waters. Its pearl-white sands are perfect for lounging on or building sandcastles with the children, while you can try a range of watersports like kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding just offshore – or just watch the kids while you chill!
4. The family rooms are so convenient
The Beach Terrace Suites at Carlisle Bay – which are part of our Holiday Sale offer – give consummate convenience for families. They sleep four so you don’t have to pay for two connecting rooms and there’s plenty of space for everyone, with an outside area to eat and relax. Plus, there’s direct access to the beach!
5. You don’t need to leave the beach to eat
If your tummies are rumbling but you can’t bear to peel yourself off the beach, then at Carlisle Bay you’re in luck. Its Indigo on the Beach is right on the sand and it’s open-sided, meaning the gentle sea breeze still tickles your face while you’re eating. Oh, and the food is pretty good, too!
