Opened in 2003, the immaculate Carlisle Bay resort is set on the unspoilt south coast of Antigua and offers chic, five-star accommodation.

Alexandra is here to help give you the inside track.

The hotel overlooks a beautiful white sand beach in an unspoilt bay, with a backdrop of tropical forest. The suites are spacious and have cool, calm interiors, private balconies and ocean views.

As well as its beautiful sandy beach, Carlisle Bay offers a range of watersports, with professional instruction available for windsurfing and sailing (Antigua is particularly good for these sports because of its reliable breezes).

Also available are kayaking, kite-surfing, fishing, boat charters, snorkelling trips to the nearby reefs and a PADI-certified diving centre.

On land, facilities include nine tennis courts (four of which are floodlit), a stunning freeform swimming pool and a spa. There is also a state-of-the-art gym, with personal training and yoga instruction available. In addition to its excellent restaurants, the hotel has three bars.

For children, there's a kids club located in the hotel's tropical gardens, with a 'jungle gym', sandpit, paddling pool and four mini tennis courts. The resort's luxurious private cinema also shows children's movies daily.

Why we love it
