About Galley Bay Resort & Spa

Previously named as one of the top 100 resorts of the world and in the top 10 of the most romantic resorts in the Caribbean by Trip Advisor, Galley Bay has to be Antigua's most loved and secluded all-inclusive resort.

Enter Galley Bay over a quaint wooden bridge, leaving the pressures of every day life behind and you'll find beautiful tropical gardens and elegant accommodation. This adults-only resort is a peaceful Caribbean hideaway where you can relax on the white sand beach and take a dip in the beautiful Caribbean Sea.

With romantic dining options and impeccable service you'll find your holiday is memorable for all the right reasons.


Galley Bay Resort & Spa offers you much to enjoy, from the three-quarter-mile white sand beach to complimentary non-motorised watersports – you can do as much or as little as you like.

The free-form pool with waterfall provides ample room for swimming and splashing around or you can also relax on a chaise on the spacious deck area. Take a stroll along the beach or venture into the turquoise Caribbean waters – snorkelling equipment and instruction are complimentary at Galley Bay.







To experience the inviting sea waters further, why not take advantage of the complimentary non-motorised water sports such as kayaking, paddle boarding, windsurfing or Hobie Cat sailing? If you prefer dry land, there’s a tennis court, table tennis and croquet games or exercise and explore by cycling or jogging around the resort.

The air conditioned Fitness Centre has state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment and you can work out whilst enjoying the beautiful tropical landscape.

Don’t worry – entertainment isn’t lacking at Galley Bay! The best local musicians bring live local music such as steel pan and reggae to the resort each night. The weekly cocktail party is an ideal opportunity to mingle and make new acquaintances and don’t miss the weekly Caribbean BBQ night where delicious fresh salads, vegetables and tasty bbq meats are served right on the beach.
