All Inclusive    

Glimmering turquoise seascapes and lush gardens create a relaxing, natural setting for those who want to decompress and escape from the world. The focal point of this all-inclusive adults-only (16+) resort is the three-quarter-mile white sand beach on the clear, warm Caribbean, where you can recline in the shade of a palm tree, soak up the sun or enjoy a refreshing swim and complimentary non-motorized watersports. The resort is located on 40 acres of beautiful tropical gardens, approximately 20 minutes away from the airport. Most accommodations are tucked into the landscape along the beach, so your next swim is just a few steps across the sand.

Part of the joy of staying at Galley Bay is dining at the two alfresco restaurants. Farm-fresh offerings are prepared with care, melding Caribbean with Continental into wonderfully original dishes. Enjoy a cooling break from the sun by day or a satisfying nightcap at any one of Galley Bay's three open-air lounges. All three serve a wonderful selection of cooling Caribbean cocktails, top-shelf liquor, and wines by the glass, along with non-alcoholic beverages.

On Galley Bay's beautiful, three-quarter-mile crescent of sand, the inviting sea is a fantastic natural playground for a host of non-motorized water sports. All lessons and equipment are included, just another luxurious reason to choose an all-inclusive stay at Galley Bay. There's no reason to take a vacation from your exercise regiment while you're at Galley Bay. Free weights and cardio equipment let you keep up your routine - or start a new one - in the comfort of the air-conditioned Fitness Center. On land, you can partake of a wide array of sports and pastimes. Galley Bay features an Astro-Turf tennis court for daytime play. To put a new spin on your game, join one of the clinics or arrange for personal instruction. For the utmost in relaxation and pampering, guests are invited to explore Indulge, the beautiful spa.

Beyond the grounds of Galley Bay, a host of exciting adventures are all within easy reach. Join a Jeep adventure into the rainforest, play golf, or discover some of the island's 365 beautiful beaches. Galley Bay makes it a point to keep its guests entertained with the best local musicians, who bring island-inflected live music to the resort each night.
Enjoys a secluded setting amidst forty-acres of lush, tropical gardens between a bird sanctuary lagoon and a beach on the undeveloped west coast of Antigua. Thatch, bamboo, and terracotta combine to establish an ambiance of elegant rusticity.

Exceptional Resort

We chose this resort for our wedding and it was also my birthday. We had a room on the beach just a few steps from the water, accommodation was very good and close to the main restaurant. The view from the balcony was amazing. On the day of our wedding we were looked after by Rovena and Ernestine, a buggy down to the far end of the resort, a lovely service by the beach, a photographer who put use at ease, champagne and wedding cake. In the evening a private meal at the same spot, it was truly a day to remember. Stayed there for 5 more days, each up to the same high standard of service from everyone. Discovered several other couples who regularly return, we will be doing the same.

Beautiful location, beautiful resort, beautiful staff.

Went there with my wife, and our daughter and her fiancé, for one week in December. In short we will be going back. We have never met any more helpful staff, everyone, went out of their way to make you feel welcome and happy. It is a place to relax and unwind, no noon time wild pol music and activities. You can get a spot at the pool anytime, on the deck anytime, no chair hogs. Loved it.

Friendly, relaxing resort on a beautiful beach

Galley Bay is set in a beautiful location on a beautiful beach. Our room was huge and well equipped and right on the beach. Very clean and spacious. The housekeepers were friendly and efficient and anything extra we needed was brought quickly. The walkways through the resort were in well kept gardens and it is pleasant to do the tour of the gardens with the knowledgeable gardener. We ate at all the restaurants. The food at Ismays was superb and was a special treat. We ate mostly at Sea Grape and there was always something on the menu for my very fussy husband to eat. I enjoyed the experience of not having the tired buffet prevalent in many all-inclusive resorts. Breakfasts were freshly cooked to order and the staff always greeted everyone with a warm and genuine smile which isn’t always seen first thing. I have mobility issues and asked being moved to a room closer to the main hub of things. No room was available but I was told to ring for assistance whenever I needed it and every time i called a buggy came straightaway to pick me up. Always with a charming driver. We went with Capt Sean for a half day sail which was great fun and I would recommend. We each had 2 massages each at the Spa which were wonderful. We are hoping to return soon although won’t be going at the start of October as the seas were so rough we couldn’t get into the sea safely! But loved the place, the room, the staff, the food. Well everything! Thanks to all at Galley Bay for a fantastic holiday and see you soon!

My wife and I stayed at Galley Bay for our anniversary. We have stayed at other Elite Island Resorts and heard great things about Galley Bay. We definitely were not disappointed and would love to go again. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bars were excellent. Thank you for the enjoyable stay!

Best of Everything!

I cannot say enough positive in one review. Start with the views- STUNNING! The rooms were perfect, right on the beach & so convenient. We stayed in one of the beachfront rooms, spacious and couldn’t be easier! Want to be in the shade? Hang on the porch! Need to cool off in ocean, walk the 25 steps & jump in! There is always a chair for the beach ready for you right outside your room, put back in each place for the next morning. The staff is incredible- Natasha, Venier, Kerian, Caryl, Peter, Chesley, Sharon, Ive, Brian, Shanda & Shilo to name a few! They were always SO friendly & knew our names after the first day. Everyone makes you feel so special & they all go out of their way to make sure you’re happy. Whether you want a cheese plate a night or a bottle of champagne for your room, a history & sailing lesson, a suggestion at the rum bar or dance partner, the staff is ready to make sure your trip is the best you’ve had! The food is gourmet, every meal better than the next & Ive’s burgers & quesadillas are something we’re truly missing at home! We had the most amazing time relaxing by the pool, hanging at the bar, walking the beach & enjoying our honeymoon! We can’t wait to come back & see our new friends. Thanks to everyone at Galley Bay for the amazing week, truly a special experience that we won’t ever forget!!
