Step aside Maldives, the Caribbean’s newest set of overwater bungalows are major competition. The Caribbean is known for many things—white-sand beaches, jaw-dropping views and rum-filled coconuts—but it still hasn’t claimed the reputation as the dazzling overwater bungalow hot spot—at least not yet. As of May, 2019, the beach-laden region will have another crown jewel of a resort for your vacationing pleasure: Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa.
Chairman Overwater Bungalows at Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa
Everything about these adults-only, overwater bungalows speaks “All is right in the world.” From glass floors looking down to the sea, a private infinity pool and overwater hammock, to the welcome bottle of champagne, every detail of these bungalows will leave you entirely satisfied. The level of service you’ll receive is unparalleled, evidenced by the butler, sunset mixologist, laundry service and golf cart shuttle.
The open-concept abodes have one king-sized bed plus a pull-out couch, complimentary in-room IPTV movie selection and a minibar, refreshed twice per day. The bathroom boasts a Jacuzzi tub and luxury robes and amenities, but that’s not all. The Diamond Club™ pillow menu and room aromatherapy are sure to whisk you off to sleep if the sound of waves isn’t enough.
All-Inclusive at Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa
Back on shore, situated on a private beach on Deep Bay in Antigua, the main property, Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa, welcomes families with an all-inclusive, luxury experience. Amenities here aren’t lacking for any age bracket. The whole family can partake in on-site recreational activities like snorkeling, kayaking and even introductory scuba diving lessons, and parents can sneak away while kids have a blast at the professionally-supervised Clubhouse Kids Club.
Choosing where to eat shouldn’t be an issue for even the pickiest eaters. Dining at the seven on-site restaurants is always reservation free, including beachfront dining at Beach Club Grill and Gourmet Marché International Buffet. When eating out doesn’t work with your schedule, simply order from the 24-hour gourmet room service *drool*. Adults will love the six bars serving up refreshing cocktails and the coffee shop, but The Royal Spa is a real treat. The full-service wellness facility offers head to toe treatments including massages, facials and a hydrotherapy circuit. Plus, there’s a complete fitness center with certified instructors nearby should you want to work up a sweat before unwinding.
Royalton’s signature all-inclusive plan, All-In Luxury®, means gourmet room service, rain showers, nightly shows and weekly themed beach parties come standard with your booking. And if that’s not over-the-top enough, upgrading to Diamond Club™ status should do the trick.
A Beach Vacation in Antigua
You really can’t find a better beach vacation destination than Antigua. Known as the island with a beach for every day of the year (it has 365 beaches), you’ll be hard-pressed to visit a less-than-postcard-perfect setting. Spend a day in the sun at Carlisle Bay or Darkwood Bay Beach, take in the view from Shirley Heights and be sure to snap a photo of the yachts in English Harbour. You can do everything from visit a donkey sanctuary to ziplining on this little Leeward Island, but with luxury accommodations over the water, we can’t guarantee you’ll want to.
