A boutique-style, adults-only paradise

Surrounded by enchanting scenery and nestled right on the edge of a pristine white sandy beach, Galley Bay is an adult-only paradise which benefits guests with a boutique-style blend of luxury, intimacy and relaxation. Named as one of the "Top 10 Best Resorts for Romance in the Caribbean" by the readers of TripAdvisor, it really lives up to its name with a selection of well-appointed beachfront rooms and suites with king-sized beds and attractive Caribbean-style interiors. The Gauguin Suiteis sure to entice you with its secluded patio and private plunge pool. Exclusive dining opportunities come in local and international flavours, ranging from private cabana dinners to lunch time favourites on the sand. The non-motorised water sports are amazing here and be sure to try out the tennis courts and cycling routes, or you can just relax and try one of the indulgent treatments in the resort's very own spa sanctuary.

Relaxing resort

Portsmouth, United Kingdom

We stayed for a week in March , we had a premium deluxe beach villa which was a charming little villa , straight out onto the beach which itself was a stunning 3/4 of a mile of golden sand ! The food & drinks were top notch everywhere we went . We ate at every restaurant & the food was amazing, we loved the bare foot grill at lunchtime , the burgers were great along with everything from the press, sat by the sea having a snack was our favourite!! The staff were all super friendly & couldn't do enough for anyone! All in all a very quiet , relaxing holiday on the beautiful island of Antigua. If I had one small gripe it was the long trousers evening dress code for men, I really think it could be toned down to collared shirts & tailored shorts...( Seems a bit stuffy for the Caribbean)we have been to other resorts of this calibre & never had this rule imposed throughout every bar & restaurant in the evening!
