Fronted by a perfect swathe of sand and backed by a bird sanctuary and lagoon, the multi award-winning Galley Bay Resort & Spa is in an unrivalled setting on the tranquil west coast of Antigua. There is little disruption from the outside world – access to the resort from reception is via a wooden bridge over the lagoon. There’s nothing to fault and everything to praise. Smiling staff look after you from the moment you arrive, whisking you off by golf cart to one of the 98 intimate rooms and suites, the majority of which grace the three quarter mile white sand beach. The Tahitian-style Gauguin Suites are tucked away in the 56 acre tropical gardens and have a private splash pool.
Feast at one of the sumptuous á la carte beachfront restaurants including Seagrape, Galley Bay’s main restaurant serving an international menu. The cosy Gauguin restaurant, meanwhile, serves grilled candlelit feasts and Ismays fine dining restaurant offers a selection of local fresh seafood flavours (supplement applies).
For the utmost in relaxation and pampering, why not explore Spa Indulge, offering a range of treatments in the single or couples treatment rooms, or alternatively opt for an outdoor tree-top treatment pavilion which overlooks the lagoon and bird sanctuary. Whilst it’s definitely a place for relaxation, this haven also offers plenty of things to do, from non-motorised watersports to cycling and walking trails.
