First stop on our tour of the Elite all-inclusive adults-only escapes in Antigua is Pineapple Beach Club. Out on the East Coast, just 30 minutes from St John’s, this gorgeous 4-star haven sits right on the beach. 

Inside you’ll find a plethora of pluses, including 5 restaurants, 3 bars, a choice of water sports, a fitness centre and a spa area. But wherever you go, you’re surrounded by incredible views over the North Atlantic. 

If all that on-site loveliness hasn’t got your heart racing, enjoy being minutes from the Devil’s Bridge National Park. If that’s not your speed, we recommend taking the payable resort shuttle and exploring the capital. 

2. The Verandah Antigua

Moving further southeast from Pineapple Beach Club, roughly 5 minutes by car, The Verandah Antigua also gives you quick exits to Devil’s Bridge and St John’s. 

The newly renovated 4.5-star resort boasts 12 restaurant and bar options, as well as a couple of swimming pools, a spa, gym and water sports. All of which is sandwiched between two achingly beautiful Antiguan stretches of sand – Rasta Beach and Lovers Beach. 

You also have the added virtue of staying at a Green Globe Certified resort. The Verandah’s ecological approaches help offset the environmental cost of your trip.

Moving from the East Coast almost directly across to the West we come to Galley Bay Resort & Spa. One the most opulent resorts on the island, this five-star stunner on the Caribbean side of the island, boasts accommodation in the form of individual suites rather than conventional rooms.

Whether you’re facing the sparkling sea or inwards across the manicured tropical gardens, the homely feel in the suites and villas will welcome you home.

The indulgence doesn’t end in the suites either. When you get out into the restaurants you’ll be able to benefit from the resort’s farm-to-table dining concept. This ethos ensures only the finest ingredients make it to your plate at the height of seasonality.

Finally, we round off our look at the adults-only Elite Island Resorts in Antigua by heading back over to the West Coast and the balmy shores in front of Hammock Cove. The main event here is, undoubtedly, the epic three-tiered infinity pool which cascades down to the white sand forming the perfect watery perch for admiring the ebb and flow of the North Atlantic. 

If you can pull yourself away from that pool (and view), take the chance to explore everything else the resort has to offer including 4 bars, 2 restaurants, a pool, spa, fitness centre and a choice of water sports. If all that doesn’t sound like a piece of you, there are also cooking classes, walking tours and rum tastings to help you unwind.
