Four Distinctive restaurants serving locally sourced ingredients


Step barefoot from the beach to the oceanview terrace of the main restaurant, Indigo on the Beach, and enjoy the refreshing sea breeze as you tuck into fresh and healthy dishes including grills, seafood, salads and homemade bread and pasta. The restaurant hosts a weekly beach barbecue with a live band. Enjoy a taste of the Orient at East, which is open for dinner and offers sensational Japanese, Thai and Indonesian cuisine in contemporary setting. Choose from fresh and tasty Italian dishes such as pizza, salad, homemade gelato at Ottimo!, the poolside restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner.



Indigo on the Beach restaurant is the relaxed heart of Carlisle Bay. Sea breezes fill the open-sided room and terrace. Tables are spread out over a wooden floor on which bare feet are welcome, at any time of day. Dishes tend toward the fresh and healthy – grilled seafood, salads, home-made breads and pastas – while children can enjoy the flexible menus designed just for them.


East is one of Antigua’s best restaurants – open for dinner only, attracting guests from all over the island, including those on honeymoon in Antigua. The fuchsia and dark wood interior has a sexy feel. The restaurant is entered via tall Indonesian carved doors. Japanese, Thai, and Indonesian dishes all appear on the menu, with sushi, sashimi and Balinese specialties among the main draws.


An Italian casual venue beside the pool, open for lunch and dinner with tables spread out in the shade. From the authentic wood-burning pizza oven emerges classic dishes using the freshest of Italian ingredients. Salads, antipasti and homemade gelato make this a destination at the midday sunshine hour – and with a Little Ottimo! menu for children, is enduringly popular with families.


The Jetty Grill is an adult’s only restaurant located adjacent to the beach.  Grilled meats, fresh seafood and wines by the carafe are daily favorites at this casual venue overlooking the resort’s Jetty and Caribbean Sea.



Pavilion Bar at Carlisle Bay occupies an elegant, open-sided Caribbean pavilion with traditional wooden shutters that open up to let the scents of sea and rainforest fill the air. With deep sofas, soft lighting and quiet corners for an intimate drink, this is a popular place for meeting for a cocktail before dining at East, which is located in an adjacent room, or sipping a thirst-quenching fruit punch while the sun is high in the sky. Think of it as a lobby bar with the quiet buzz that comes from a convivial meeting place at the heart of our resort.


Indigo Bar at Carlisle Bay is an open-sided bar beside the beach with simple rattan chairs and sofas where guests gather at any hour for cocktails, fruit punches and drinks.


The Coconut Grove, which is located next door, is a pretty swathe of shaded sand behind the main beach where chairs and loungers offer couples a quiet place to hang out with a drink. The bar service here is available at any hour, and includes a pleasant afternoon tea provided to guests on a complimentary basis.


This fun, foot-in-the-sand bar is where to catch a drink when coming in from the sea.  Fresh coconuts and beers feature, along with light bites and sundowners served around the fire pit (made from an old ‘copper’, which was originally used to boil cane juice).
