Galley Bay Resort & Spa is an extraordinary exclusive retreat, perfect for the discerning traveler. Its natural elegance, classic Caribbean charm and Gauguin-inspired Tahitian-style set this all-inclusive haven apart from the rest. Galley Bay's intimate guest rooms are nestled amidst 40 secluded acres of beachfront tropical gardens, a lagoon and bird sanctuary, and a very private 3/4-mile white-sand beach. All guests are welcomed with consummate Antiguan hospitality and whisked away from the historical sugar mill reception by golf cart to an astonishing cottage or beachfront accommodations. More than three-quarters of the accommodations lie directly on the white sand beach; the remainder tucked away in the gardens and boasting their own private splash pools.
Please note: Guests aged 16 and older are considered adults at this resort. All ages are welcome during the Christmas and New Year's season.
