Clifftop sleep on a private bay with a long list of water sports, seven infinity pools, and a spa
Set on a private bay with two pristine beaches, Blue Waters resort delivers all the Caribbean goods: bright sun and warm sea, plus amenities like seven swimming pools, a full-service spa and water sports. Within a 20-minute drive from Antigua’s capital city of St. John’s, the 32-suite property is on a clifftop surrounded by 17 acres of lush gardens.
At over 730 feet, guests have room to spread out in Cove Suite rooms, decorated in a modern, Caribbean-style with and balconies overlooking the ocean. Mod con include iPod docking stations, a flat screen TV and air-conditioning, and Cove Suite guests also have exclusive access to four of the resort's seven pools. Deluxe beachfront rooms are on the ground level, just steps away from the sand.
On the food front, you can choose between Bartleys, which serves upscale cuisine in a romantic setting, and the more casual Palm, ideal for a relaxed lunch with a view of the beach. In the evenings live entertainment is usually offered at the hotel’s Pelican Bar. Active travelers will welcome the wide range of water sports available, including kayaking, jet-skiing, snorkeling and sailing; the resort also has an on-site fitness center and can arrange for private training sessions.
In the Area
On-island diversions include three miles of bike trails and a handful of pristine beaches, from pocket coves to the long stretch of sand at Pasture Bay (where the resort will hook you up with a picnic of goodies such as poached salmon and heirloom tomato salad — just ask). Itching to get off campus? Hop on the ferry over to Antigua to be schooled in British naval history at the excellently preserved , try on a few of the 365 beaches for size (yes, they say there’s one for every day of the year), and head up to the Shirley Heights Lookout for a Sunday night party where people line up for plates of jerk chicken and barbecued seafood, then let loose to live reggae and soca bands, Wadadli lager in hand. If there’s one night to go off your all-inclusive food plan, this would be it.
