Romance-focused all-inclusive on the beach with a splurge-worthy spa and three top-notch restaurants
This couples-oriented, all-inclusive resort started as a modest family-owned operation, and though it has grown into a grand beachfront stay, the vibe remains intimate — a stay here feels more like a visit to a good friend’s Caribbean estate than a hotel. Interiors eschew the traditional Caribbean assault of candy colors for a more reserved palette of natural sand-and-sea shades with tropical flower–colored accents (the artist Gauguin is the muse).
Bed & Bath
Choose between free-standing bungalows with outdoor showers and private balconies or garden bungalows with private plunge pools. Most opt to unwind in a traditional “unplugged” room, though guests can have digs equipped with mod cons like WiFi, a flat-screen TV and an iPod dock.
Three restaurants are included in this resort’s all-inclusive rate. The casual beachfront Sea Grape works well for breakfast while Barefoot Grill is a favorite for lunch. For a romantic dinner a deux, couples can dine in a private cabana at Gauguin restaurant, which serves upscale West Indian fusion fare. Ismay's restaurant is located at the remote south end of the beach; it's open only evenings, and offers white glove service.
In the Area
Start your vacation on a relaxing note with a treatment at the hotel’s Indulge spa — we like the “Tropical Harmony” massage with papaya-pineapple crème fraiche exfoliation and wrap. For a more active afternoon, snorkel, kayak or sail off the beach or venture beneath the waves with Dive Antigua, the longest-running outfitter on the island. You can also see a bird’s-eye view of the island with Antigua Rainforest, which runs zipline canopy tours in the island’s lush jungle.
