Blue Waters, Antigua
Since first opening its doors in 1960, this friendly, family-owned resort has been treating guests to a sublime slice of paradise for over 50 years. Set in 17 acres of tropical gardens and flanked by the glorious calm waters of Soldiers Bay, it would be hard to find a more beautiful spot. Its west-facing location means it ensures cinematic viewing of the vivid, Caribbean sunsets.
There are a multitude of room choices at Blue Waters and all are extremely comfortable, but we have to confess The Cove Suites tick all the boxes for us here at Turquoise. Secluded and private you can enjoy uninterrupted panoramas of the Caribbean Sea, a décor which is calm and very pleasing to the eye, crisp white linens, weathered wood and furnished balconies. A spacious living area flows into a generous bedroom – bathrooms are also oversized and exceptionally well appointed. The Cove Suites also benefit from an infinity pool for the use of Cove Suite guests only.
With four restaurants (two open each evening) and bars you will be spoilt for choice. Enjoy breakfast with a view at The Palm Restaurant, which by night takes on a refined, soft and elegant vibe. Bartley’s is an intimate and romantic spot, whilst the cliff top Cove fuses Caribbean and French cuisine with an almost effortless flair – expect flaming torches and dining by candlelight. For a jovial, Caribbean vibe head to the Pelican Bar, and Carolyn's Beach Bar is on hand to keep you cool and refreshed throughout the day with a fabulous menu of cocktails, mocktails and light lunch bites.
There is an extensive range of facilities to keep you entertained with tennis courts, a fully equipped gym and a plethora of watersports on the beach. There are three main swimming pools, one of which is adults only, and preferential rates can be arranged with the Cedar Valley golf course – Antigua’s only 18-hole PGA course. For those seeking something a little less strenuous the Spa at Blue Waters is a relaxing interlude and offers a decadent menu of treatments to pamper the mind, body and soul.
With spectacular beaches, crystal clear sea and super friendly locals, Antigua is THE place for a sun-filled honeymoon! And Blue Waters is an excellent choice of hotel! Offering either bed & breakfast or all-inclusive options, as well as lots of different room types to choose from, an abundance of activities to partake in and plenty of dining possibilities, your honeymoon here can be tailored to fit your exact requirements and budget.
Look to stay in one of the more exclusive Cove Suites for a luxurious, secluded honeymoon experience.

Enjoy all of the resort amenities, including the picturesque and peaceful adults only pool, secluded sunloungers dotted around the resort and the superb Cove Restaurant for more intimate, romantic meals.
