Families return time and time again to this welcoming retreat for a luxury Caribbean holiday – and it’s easy to see why. An established favourite for luxury family holidays, Blue Waters Resort & Spa, Antigua beckons with its seven swimming pools, calm ocean waters and varied activity programmes for adults and children alike. Forming a cocoon around part of Soldier’s Bay, the resort benefits from three practically-private beaches, providing seclusion and security for guests.
The newly refurbished Cove Suites provide the ultimate in luxury and space, suitable for up to 2 adults and 2 children and benefit from their own Cove infinity pools, as well as concierge service. Or for a multi-generational family retreat, why not choose one of the resort’s 3 villas, with up to 6 bedrooms and their own private pools. There is plenty to do for children at Blue Waters, with kids activities for all ages. For 4-12 year olds, the complimentary Blue Waters Kids Club offers a range of enticing activities led by highly-experienced staff, including football, cricket, tennis and arts & crafts sessions.
During peak season, the kids club also hosts a weekly kids club party with inflatables, games and face painting. For the tiny tots, there is a Blue Waters creche for ages 14 months – 3 years; perfect for parents looking for a bit of relaxation time, safe in the knowledge that their little ones are in great hands. There is kids menus in all of the resort’s 3 restaurants, as well as the option of early dining. For those nights that parents wish to dine without the kids, there is a babysitting service run by the team at the Blue Waters kids club.
The gently-lapping waters of the Caribbean Sea invite active pursuits for all ages; beginners and intermediates alike can try their hand at snorkelling, kayaking and windsurfing
