Blue waters was very special. We got married there and everything was perfect.

We're leaving Blue Waters tomorrow after a sublime week of relaxation on the beautiful island of Antigua.

The wonderful location is conducive to pure relaxation, but also sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkeling. The watersports guys - Owen, Ryan, and Dave - are fine instructors with appropriate patience and kindness to help all sorts, even beginners. All in all, BlueWaters is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the North West Corner of Antigua where crystal clear waters lap onto secluded white sand beaches, Blue Waters Resort offers an island paradise. From your personal welcome, complete with cooled scented towel and rum punch, you will realise you are our valued guest. Featuring small secluded beach coves, seven freshwater pools and 17 acres of lush tropical gardens, Blue Waters provides the ideal setting for relaxing days by the pool or on the beach, cocktail in hand, or for reading a good book in the shade of the swaying palm trees. Having gently evolved and constantly improved over 50 years we offer a range of luxuriously appointed rooms to meet the needs of our guests, from hillside rooms in a garden setting to beachside rooms with renowned spectacular ocean views. For the more active guest we offer complimentary watersports, tennis and a newly refurbished gym. Our recently opened Elemis Spa and Hair Salon with its stunning ocean views provides a perfect setting for a pampering treatment or as part of a wedding package. Finish the day off dining at one of our 3 restaurants, each with a different ambience to suit your mood. Our staff is ready and waiting to welcome you. ... more   less
