At the mouth of a secluded cove, Blue Waters Resort & Spa backs onto 17 acres of tropical gardens. Renovations in 2016 have enhanced the relaxed ambience that lures spa-goers through its doors. Once inside, a range of soothing Elemis treatments are sure to keep them there: a dizzying mix of facials and body rituals, massages and beauty therapies.

May 2017 sees the launch of Living Retreats, a personal lifestyle consultation and bespoke health, fitness and nutritional programme. Running until the end of October, it addresses a variety of wellness and lifestyle issues, including stress management and weight-loss through activities such as meditation, Pilates, kayaking and nutrition classes. Living Retreats is also supported by health-boosting menu options in its three on-site restaurants.

Blue Waters epitomises colourful Caribbean living and its 114 spacious air-conditioned guest rooms, suites and villas benefit from sophisticated design. Accommodation is dotted along the hillside, nestled among the lush gardens or lining the beachfront to maintain a sense of privacy, while making the most of the sensational views. Larger villas — some with private pools — make for the ideal home from home for large groups and families.

The local area showcases three sheltered sandy beaches, while resort facilities include seven swimming pools (one adults-only; four exclusive to Cove Suite guests), a whirlpool bath, tennis court and modern fitness centre. Complimentary non-motorised watersports, such as sailing, windsurfing and snorkelling, will entice visitors into the warm Caribbean waters. (Water skiing and jet skiing can be arranged upon request.)

With holidays arranged via Caribtours, guests can experience the wonders of Antigua, from taking island cruises to deep-sea fishing and bird-spotting hikes through the forest-topped hills. Sun-worshippers will discover deserted beaches and freshwater pools along the coast; Ffryes Bay is famed for its pelicans; while dining on fresh lobster at OJ’s at Johnson’s Point is a must for seafood lovers.
