    Blue Waters - Antigua

    In a glorious setting between two palm-fringed coves, Blue Waters is one of the Caribbean’s most laid-back resorts.

    Sunshine and Service

    With a choice of beaches, water sports galore and a sizeable spa, Blue Waters has everything you need for a relaxing escape, perfect for a romantic tropical honeymoon or a couples celebratory holiday.

    • Getting There

      It’s an eight-and-a-half-hour direct flight to Antigua, followed by just a 15-minute transfer.

    • Need to Know

      We think it's well worth upgrading to a suite - talk to us about the best options for you.

    But what really sets Blue Waters apart is the service. From the moment you check in, you’ll be well looked after by the charming team, many of whom have been pouring rum punches and turning down bedrooms here for decades. Bartley’s restaurant and Veronica’s bar are even named after long-standing staff members.

    A wide array of rooms and suites overlook tropical gardens or are just steps from those eponymous turquoise waters. Each is elegantly colonial, with terracotta tiles and vaulted ceilings. If you’re travelling as a family, there’s a trio of spacious private pool villas to choose from. Days can be spent reading in the shade, snorkelling in the sea or dipping your toes in the sand with a cocktail in hand. If you’re seeking a stress-free direct hit of winter sun, look no further.

    This is a lovely laid-back Caribbean resort with a good range of accommodation to suit all. I recommend heading to the Cove Restaurant for sunset and dinner - I had a delicious, just-caught fish whilst watching the sun slide into the ocean.
