There are 98 elegant guest rooms to choose from at Galley Bay, divided into three categories: Premium Beachfront Suites, Beachfront Rooms and Gauguin Cottages. Opt for a Premium Beachfront Suite and you will be spending your Antiguan vacation in a stunning haven exquisitely decked out with dark acacia wood furnishings and smooth granite, feeding out onto a private patio or balcony with cosy rattan chaises on which to recline and admire the view. Featuring a sunken living room and a spacious bathroom complete with deep corner soaking tub for two and double vanities, these suites are tranquil havens of comfort and simple luxury, equipped with wireless internet access and a 32-inch wall-mounted TV with DVD player. Beachfront rooms are split into two categories – Superior and Deluxe, the latter being more spacious. Both types offer easy access to the beach and the sea and come with sleek modern bathrooms with showers, as well as plush king-sized bed and private terraces/patios. Last but not least you could opt for one of the Gauguin Cottages, tucked away among lush foliage near the lagoon. With their thatched roofs, ceilings of woven bamboo and whitewashed walls these cottages embody laid-back island chic and provide you with a relaxing sanctuary in which to let all your cares melt away. Each one comes with a beach shower, concealed patio and adjoining plunge pool, perfect for taking a refreshing dip in the sticky Caribbean heat.
When you are not feasting and drinking be sure to take full advantage of the resort’s outstanding leisure facilities. A lot of fun can be had in the water, whether you are taking a cooling dip in the free-form pool or in the waves of the Caribbean. You can also go snorkelling and try some of the exciting complimentary water sports on offer which include Hobie cat sailing, windsurfing and kayaking. Back on dry land why not burn off last night’s dinner with a work-out in the fitness centre, go cycling or jogging, or perhaps enjoy a casual game of tennis or even croquet. During your stay at Galley Bay you can also go on various unforgettable excursions, such as an Adventure Antigua Eco Tour, a catamaran cruise or a Rainforest Zip-line and Kayak Adventure. You can even swim with – and feed – Southern Stingrays or go on a romantic picnic at Pinchin Bay.
There are 3 romantic al fresco restaurants and a Beach Grill at Galley Bay, not to mention 3 bars and lounges, offering you a wealth of wining and dining experiences. Sea Grape is the main restaurant and offers delectable buffet and a la carte options as well as a weekly Caribbean barbecue with live steel-drum music – guaranteed to be one of the highlights of your stay. For a romantic lunch or dinner make your way to Gauguin where you can savour an intimate meal in your own cabana, tucking into exotic dishes blending flavours from Europe, the Pacific Rim and the West Indies. Pair your meal with glasses of house wine and finish off with a cup of coffee and a decadent dessert. In between meals drop by the TeePee Bar for a Galley Bay Special – with light rum, coconut cream, fresh bananas and grenadine – and enjoy the great atmosphere and flowing conversation. Alternatively you can opt to enjoy a leisurely drink in the elegant contemporary Lounge Bar, which offers live music in the evenings.
