Galley Bay Resort & Spa

St John • Antigua

Treat yourself to an authentic Caribbean getaway at the fabulous Adults-Only Galley Bay Resort & Spa in Antigua.

Set between one of the best beaches on the island and acres of lush tropical gardens, this All-Inclusive boutique resort delights guests with a refined, yet unpretentious atmosphere.

As you are whisked across a bridge over the lagoon you will feel as though you've found your own tropical hideaway. Ideal for couples and newlyweds seeking a romantic getaway, both adventure and tranquility are on the menu at this award-winning tropical paradise.

A scattering of rocking chairs on the boardwalk offers the perfect place to sit and gaze out over the ocean at sunset with a cocktail in hand, while the saltwater lagoon is a scenic spot to watch herons, pelicans and frigate birds diving for their dinner.

With a three-quarter mile white-sand beach and sparkling seascapes, Galley Bay Resort & Spa is a picture-perfect setting where you can unwind and escape from the world or seek fun and adventure.

Soak up the sun in your poolside chaise longue. Explore the resort by bike. Perfect your game on the tennis court. Go snorkeling, kayaking, try the hobie cats or stand-up paddle boarding in the sapphire blue waters of the Caribbean. The day is yours to design.

Embrace the tropical vibe of the Caribbean with island-inspired live music, enriching activities and events. Evenings at Galley Bay Resort & Spa are infused with an enchanting mix of steel-drum rhythms, reggae beats and popular tunes performed by talented local musicians.

When not swaying to the music, you might mingle at a cocktail party, please your palate at a special barbecue, join a cooking demonstration, tour the resort's gardens or catch a movie under the stars.
