This super-chic boutique hotel lies on the perfect sandy shores of one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean, with a magnificent backdrop of rainforest-covered hills. There are plenty of wow factors about Carlisle Bay, not least the dramatic arrival over a lily pond guarded by flaming torches.
Inside, contemporary cool grey interiors are complemented by sleek dark wood furniture and original black and white photography of lush local flora. Other thoughtful luxurious touches include a private screening room showing movies during the day and night, a stunning library and a complimentary Cool Kids Club where young guests can spend time having fun.
You can also enjoy a host of activities with nine tennis courts, complimentary watersports, which include windsurfing, kayaking and sailing, or take a guided walk through the rainforest. All 82 spacious ocean-facing suites are styled with bespoke furniture, huge bathrooms and fabulous Frette linen, and have a private balcony or terrace.
For the foodies amongst us, East is an outstanding pan-Asian restaurant entered through grand carved doors, while Indigo on the Beach is more Caribbean in its setting, offering delicious healthy grills, barbeques, seafood and salads. The poolside restaurant, Ottimo! serves Italian favourites whilst the new Jetty Grill, an adult only beach venue, is now open for lunch.
Pure relaxation can be found at the ultra modern Blue Spa, offering an extensive range of treatments using Natura Bissé products in six sleek treatment rooms, as well as an open-air yoga and pilates pavilion.
