The popular Carlisle Bay hotel resort has something for everyone. Owned by Gordon Campbell Gray (recent winner of the Leading Legends accolade) the hotel has that "wow" factor.

Beautifully set between mountains and sandy shores the hotel is also a previous "Best Luxury Romantic Hotel" winner at the World Luxury Hotel Awards.

The hotel is situated amidst stunning scenery on the beautiful island of Antigua. With a policy of no motorized water-sports in the bay, nothing will prevent you from fully enjoying that all important escape from the usual bustle of busy life.

That's not to say that you can't enjoy the water. Sailing enthusiasts and those keen to try out various water-sports such as kayaking are well catered for. Also, around April/May, Carlisle Bay often hosts Antigua Sailing Week and so it's a great chance to see some fantastic races. This event has received top billing in the world of sailing.

Days can be spent playing tennis or being pampered in the ulta-modern, 17,000 square foot Blue Spa. The hotel features 9 well equipped tennis courts and residential sports professionals teaching all ages and levels of expertise. With these facilities, you can see why sporting superstar Boris Becker is amongst a very distinguished list of previous guests at the hotel.

Evenings are low key affairs focused around Carlisle Bay's two splendid restuarants. East is an outstanding Pan-Asian affair, whilst Indigo on the Beach is more Caribbean in its setting, offering wonderful healthy grills, barbeques, seafood and salads.

Adding to the sophistication of the area, you can even find residents such as fashion supremo Giorgio Armani on the island. In addition, the 5 star hotel has hosted royalty such as the Duchess of Cornwall.

For those looking to bring their children, the hotel more than provides with the "cool kids club". Weekly activity programmes are available including: giant castle building, turtle watching and star fish finding. All this can happen while the adults can then enjoy their champagne on the pier.

The hotels 82 ocean facing guest suites are very spacious with huge bathrooms, bespoke furniture, and cool Frette linen. A contemporary feel is created by cool grey interiors and sleek dark wood furniture complemented by original black and white photography of the local flora and fauna.

Wendy K Bristol

Location is fantastic and the beach setting lovely. Room was large but a little tired. Service very friendly but exceptionally slow. Kids club a disappointment. Despite being half term, there were very few other 9-12 year olds (lots of toddlers) so many of the activities didn't run. Those that did were at an extra cost so the holiday was less all-inclusive than we expected.

Lisa B Meopham

Meals very expensive £100 pp for buffet meal- Gin and Tonic £16 pp but wine very reasonable- similar to prices in UK. Room was amazing and service exceptional.
