Located on the white-sand beach of Antigua's famous Dickenson Bay, and voted most romantic resort in the world, Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa All Inclusive provides guests with a dual resort experience – Mediterranean and Caribbean. Guests can choose between the piazzas and classical architecture of the all-suite Mediterranean Village and the authentic rondovals and suites of the lush Caribbean Grove.
11 top-end restaurants offering cuisines ranging from fine Asian to haute European, and gastro-pub grub to Caribbean delights, ensure that guests are spoilt for gastronomic choice. Complementing the dining options, 7 differently themed – from pool to pub and jazz to beachside – bars serve the highest quality drinks, and keep guests’ spirits jovial.
A 24 hour fully-equipped fitness center, distinctive pools, yoga, aerobic and water aerobics classes, tennis lessons with a pro, and beach volleyball are just some of the options that prevent fitness routines from taking a backseat to relaxation. For the more adventurous, snorkeling, scuba diving, canoeing, and windsurfing allow for the elevation of endorphin and adrenalin levels. After all the high energy activities, guests can be pampered at the full-service Red Lane Spa®, which offers classic European spa treatments revitalized with a Caribbean touch. Surcharges apply for spa and beauty treatments and services.
5000 square feet of meeting space and 6 meeting/conference rooms make this an ideal resort for conferences. For ease of travel, guests can use the airport shuttle, offered during limited hours. High-speed Internet can be accessed in the Internet Café (Caribbean Grove Lobby), and complimentary WiFi coverage extends throughout the resort.
