I stayed at this wonderful property for 3 nights back in July of this year, which is about a 30 minute transfer from St Johns' International airport.Carlisle Bay has a long beautiful beach in a secluded bay with a backdrop of hills and lush green forest. It was great to get up early in the morning and have a walk along the beach with the warm breeze and dipping my toes in the clear water.

I stayed in one of the Ocean Suites, which had an open-plan bedroom-sitting room, spacious balcony with wonderful sea views and a great shower room.I had breakfast everyday in the main restaurant Indigo on the Beach, which is a great place to start the day. Very relaxing with great food. I also had a meal at East, which serves Japanese, Thai, and Indonesian dishes. I really felt like I was in Paradise for those 3 short days and hope to return there again one day for a longer stay.

We can’t imagine a better way to celebrate 20 years! We wanted relaxing & that’s what we got. The staff understood we were there to hang out & do nothing. No pushy services, just a wonderful experience!!
The enormous modern garden room was incredibly comfortable. The well maintained grounds are beautiful. The resort layout gives visitors plenty of space on the beach. The beach service was remarkable – wi-fi, drinks, fruit skewers, cold towels, sunglass cleaning, cucumbers for eyes, coolers of water, popsicles, etc.Read more Read less
Our first night my husband was looking for ice & stopped a woman working. She offered to get it but he refused since she had her hands full. Shortly after returning to the room a man came by with a bucket of ice. Wow! So unexpected. It set the tone for the rest of our stay. Be careful what you ask for…
