Villa Retreats’ travel expert Tina Moorcroft took a trip to Antigua to do a little research. As part of her trip she spent a night at Blue Waters, an exclusive luxury villa resort. Here Tina describes the experience in her own words.
I arrived at the idyllic tropical paradise at midday, after being greeted with a warm smile and a cool towel, I was whisked to The Palm restaurant for a spot of lunch. Offering a Caribbean al fresco dining experience with the most perfect setting with views of the clear sea and beautifully landscaped gardens.
Then it was off to view some of the properties on offer in this resort including Pelican House which can be split to either three or six bedrooms depending on your party requirements. This villa has a private pool and patio and over looks the Caribbean Sea
There are also a variety of rooms available from a Superior Hillside Room which has twin or a king size bed and en suite; to a Cove Penthouse which features a separate living and dining area, kitchen and 3 en suite bedrooms.
Then next to the Spa at Blue Waters which is working alongside Elemis to provide a range of sumptuous treatments and a perfect place to relax and be pampered.
If you prefer a more active holiday then the gym is available with a variety of equipment and also accompanied runs or cardio lessons.
Not forgetting the children there is a fully staffed kids club and creche; which offers a whole range of activities to keep them occupied; even babysitting should you wish to have a romantic dinner in the four restaurants; there is something for everyone.
After a quick-change dinner was served in the Cove Restaurant with our host Gina who is the Executive Assistant Manager. Nothing was too much trouble and a delightful dinner was had by all.
After dinner; drinks and live music were available in the bar. Most drinks are included apart from premium spirits & some cocktails, but details are provided on the bar menu.
After a long day; a wind down on the balcony of the Beach Front Room was required; watching the sun go down and the night sky fill with stars as far as the eye could see!
The next morning, I had the great pleasure of visiting Rock Cottage. Nestled on the edge of the cove just a short walk from the main resort; this beautiful property had views to die for. With a private terrace an infinity pool and five bedrooms, with views of the Caribbean Sea this place was out of this world.
Definitely worth a visit!
