“A super friendly adult-only resort in a spectacular lagoon setting on Antigua’s west coast. Enjoy the beach-front cottages, the rambling grounds filled with tropical plants, and the nightly entertainment. Choice of sublime cuisine. Romantic, quiet and idyllic.”

Hotel Review

“A well-run friendly all-inclusive resort that sees guests return year after year. All the rooms are beachfront apart from the idyllic Gauguin suites, which are romantic rural cottages tucked away in the gardens. The sea here attracts local surfers and is dramatic to look at if not always safe to swim (there is a flag system in operation). On red flag days there's a calm bay nearby for swimming. Other activities on offer include tennis, volleyball, cycling, yoga, fishing and croquet, while the spa offers aromatic local treatments using home-grown ingredients such as lemongrass and ginger. An extensive kitchen garden is harvested for the restaurants of which there are four. The beachfront Gauguin’s is an Instagrammable spot, while fine dining is offered for a surcharge at Ismay’s at the other end of the beach. Food and drink are free-flowing with a call button by the loungers at the pool to ensure cocktails are on demand.”
