Resort Amenities

Restaurants, Bars, & Lounges

Indigo - Indigo on the Beach restaurant is the relaxed heart of Carlisle Bay. Sea breezes fill the open-sided room and terrace. Tables are spread out over a wooden floor on which bare feet are welcome, at any time of day. Dishes tend toward the fresh and healthy - grilled seafood, salads, home-made breads and pastas - while children can enjoy the flexible menus designed just for them.

East - East is one of Antigua’s best restaurants - open for dinner only, attracting guests from all over the island, including those on honeymoon in Antigua. The fuchsia and dark wood interior has a sexy feel. The restaurant is entered via tall Indonesian carved doors. Japanese, Thai, and Indonesian dishes all appear on the menu, with sushi, sashimi and Balinese specialties among the main draws. Please note those with young children under the age of 6 are asked to come earlier, from 6.30pm to 8pm. This retains the sophisticated spirit that makes East particular popular with couples. Reservations are essential.

Ottimo! - An Italian casual venue beside the pool, open for lunch and dinner with tables spread out in the shade. From the authentic wood-burning pizza oven emerges classic dishes using the freshest of Italian ingredients. Salads, antipasti and homemade gelato make this a destination at the midday sunshine hour – and with a Little Ottimo! menu for children, is enduringly popular with families.

The Jetty Grill - The Jetty Grill is an adult’s only restaurant located adjacent to the beach. Grilled meats, fresh seafood and wines by the carafe are daily favorites at this casual venue overlooking the resort’s Jetty and Caribbean Sea.

Pavilion Bar - Pavilion Bar at Carlisle Bay occupies an elegant, open-sided Caribbean pavilion with traditional wooden shutters that open up to let the scents of sea and rainforest fill the air. With deep sofas, soft lighting and quiet corners for an intimate drink, this is a popular place for meeting for a cocktail before dining at East, which is located in an adjacent room, or sipping a thirst-quenching fruit punch while the sun is high in the sky. Think of it as a lobby bar with the quiet buzz that comes from a convivial meeting place at the heart of our resort.

Indigo Bar - Indigo Bar at Carlisle Bay is an open-sided bar beside the beach with simple rattan chairs and sofas where guests gather at any hour for cocktails, fruit punches and drinks.

Coconut Grove - The Coconut Grove, which is located next door, is a pretty swathe of shaded sand behind the main beach where chairs and loungers offer couples a quiet place to hang out with a drink. The bar service here is available at any hour, and includes a pleasant afternoon tea provided to guests on a complimentary basis.

The Jetty Bar - This fun, foot-in-the-sand bar is where to catch a drink when coming in from the sea.  Fresh coconuts and beers feature, along with light bites and sundowners served around the fire pit (made from an old ‘copper’, which was originally used to boil cane juice).

Room Types

Garden Suites - Our 72 square meters (770 square feet)  Garden Suites are spacious, split-level rooms with an open-plan bedroom and sitting room. The king-size bed sleeps two adults. Views are predominantly of the gardens, which are full of tropical foliage, with partial views of the turquoise Caribbean waters. Two pairs of Garden Suites interconnect.

Ocean Suite - Located on the calm end of the beach, our 72 square meters (770 square feet) Ocean Suites are perfect for those in search of peace and quiet. They are split-level and have an open-plan bedroom-sitting room. They also have exceptional sea views and have an uncluttered, luxury design.  Four pairs of Ocean Suites can interconnect.

Bay Suites - At 72 sq m/ 780 sq feet, the resort’s six direct ocean front suites specifically intended for adults only are spacious and understated. Private Butler service, Vodka & Rum bar set up and Temple Spa luxury bath products for Him & Her are just a few of the enhanced suite amenities. The preferred beach location is private and calm. Adjacent to The Jetty, romantic dinners for two can be pre-arranged by the private butler for that special Caribbean experience while dining under the stars.

Beach Balcony Suites - With half the 500m crescent beach designed for families and the other half for adults and couples, Carlisle Bay allows everyone to enjoy a perfect getaway. Located on the family half of the resort, our Beach Suites come with a studio-style king-bedded master bedroom with direct views of the bay and a second bedroom with twin beds so you do not need a second suite.

Beach Terrace Suites - Our Beach Terrace Suite rooms are positioned on the ground level to provide direct beach access. The configuration is the same as the Beach Balcony Suites - with a second twin bedroom accommodating children up to the age of 15 (cribs are available for babies). The ease of stepping out on to the sand is what makes these rooms stand out.

Carlisle Suites - Our Carlisle Suite B is among the most luxurious suites in the Caribbean: a three-bedroom configuration sleeping six in two king-size double rooms, and one twin, with a large sitting room opening on to an L-shaped, beachfront balcony or terrace to take in the spectacular white sand views.
