Distance from V.C. Bird International Airport: 25 minutes,
distance from town/St. John's: 10 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 complements,
but also takes full advantage of these untouched natural surroundings.
Thatch, bamboo, and terracotta combine to establish an ambience of
elegant rusticity in the alfresco public areas, whilst a picturesque
wooden deck ensures maximum exposure to the ocean views. There is
little disruption from the outside world as access to the resort is
via a wooden bridge traversing the bird sanctuary. The 69-guest rooms
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
feature private terraces or balconies, whilst sunken living rooms,
floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive bathrooms with deep-soaking
tubs distinguish the Premium Suites. Home-from-home comforts throughout
include air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite TVs, mini-refrigerators
and coffee makers. Set just behind close to the bird sanctuary is
the unique Gauguin cottages with there own individual splash pools.
Designed as semi-private
sanctuaries for couples, each one consists of two thatched-roof rondovals
(one a bedroom and the other a bathroom/dressing room), as well as
splash pools 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,
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 championship tennis court, air-conditioned
fitness room or non-motorized watersports, such as windsurfing, sailing,
snorkeling and kayaking. Massages are also available on-site, scuba-diving
can 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 Seagrape can enjoy the grilled fare of the more
intimate Gauguin restaurant, both dining venues alfresco and just
steps from the Caribbean Sea. Afternoon tea, evening hors doeuvres,
live entertainment, cocktail parties and Caribbean barbecues all contribute
to the hotels sociable, tropical ambience, whilst the personal service
from the well-established staff contributes to its exceptionally high
