From Our Customers

"The honeymoon was absolutely amazing, the resort was breathtaking & the service was extraordinary! They took really good care of us & the GM even set us up in the Prime Minister suite which was so beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We really appreciate you!"

HOTEL INFORMATION

Galley Bay Resort & Spa
Five IslandsP.O. Box 305St. Johns, Antigua

Distance from hotel to the capital city of St. John, 10 minutes.

Distance from hotel to V.C. Bird International Airport (ANU), 25 minutes.

Galley Bay is an all-inclusive beachfront hideaway created for discerning travelers in search of a refined, yet unpretentious escape. It enjoys a secluded setting amidst forty-acres of lush, tropical gardens between a bird sanctuary lagoon and a 3/4 mile beach on the undeveloped west coast of Antigua. Great care has been taken to ensure the resort not only compliments, but also

takes full advantage of these untouched natural surroundings.

Thatch, bamboo, and terracotta combine to establish an ambianceof elegant rusticity in the alfresco public areas, whilst a picturesque wooden deck ensures maximum exposure to the oceanviews. There is little disruption from the outside world as access to the resort is via a wooden bridge traversing the bird sanctuary. The 98 guestrooms are discreetly tucked away amidst the palms, more than three-quarters of them lying directly on the white sand beach and boasting breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea- the comfortable Superior and Deluxe Rooms all feature private terraces or balconies. The Premium Suites aredistinguished by sunken living rooms, floor-to-ceiling windowsand expansive bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs, and updated amenities such as complimentary internet access, a DVD player and an iPod docking station. Home-away-from-home comfortsthroughout include air conditioning, ceiling fans, satelliteTVs, mini-refrigerators (stocked on the day arrival only) andcoffee makers. Set just behind close to the bird sanctuary isthe unique Gauguin cottages with their own individual splashpools. Designed as semi-private sanctuaries for couples, eachone consists of two thatched-roof rondovals (one a bedroomand the other a bathroom/dressing room), as well as splashpools with paved sundecks, many of them overlooking the lagoon.Woven bamboo ceilings, uneven whitewashed walls and cool terracotta tiling establish their charming Caribbean theme,whilst the beach is no more than fifty-yards away. In keeping with Galley Bay's tranquil, escapist ambience, recreational activities tend to be of a relaxing nature and guests are generally quite content to sunbathe on the sands or around the landscaped swimming pool. Those in the mood for a little action, however, can take advantage of the tennis court, air-conditioned fitness room or non-motorizedwatersports, such as windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling andkayaking. Massages are also available on-site, scuba-divingcan be arranged nearby, whilst golf on two 18-hole golf courses are less than 30-minutes drive away. Dining is also an important part of any stay at Galley Bay, the European Executive Chef specializing in Euro-Caribbean cuisine that makes the most of fresh local produce and seafood. Guests seeking a change from the a la carte fine dining experience of The Sea Grape can enjoy the grilled fare of the more intimate Gauguin restaurant, both dining venues alfrescoand just steps from the Caribbean Sea. Or guests can alsoexperience fine dining at Ismay's restaurant (an additionalsurcharge applies for this dining option). Afternoon tea,evening hors d'oeuvres, live entertainment, cocktail partiesand Caribbean barbecues all contribute to the hotels sociable,tropical ambiance, whilst the personal service from the staffcontributes to its exceptionally high repeat-guest quota.
