Introducing Elite Island Resorts
This collection of seven all-inclusive, mainly beachfront resorts in the Caribbean immerse you in the peerless beauty and charm of this enchanting region thanks to its one-of-a-kind adventures everywhere from the shimmering offshore reefs of the Grenadines to the party island of Barbados.
With tranquil spas, sparkling pools and inspired, locally infused five-stay dining, Elite Resorts are a place to relax and indulge yourself, but there is also array of eco-adventures to get you out enjoying the great outdoors, ranging from hikes deep in the rainforest to kayaking over secret reefs teeming with colour, from zip-lining to island safaris.
This is one of the Caribbean’s most popular all-inclusive destinations thanks to its white-sand beaches and rich history, and Elite Resorts has five of its fantastic properties on the island, each with something different to offer.
The iconic St James’s Club & Villas 4* plus on a secluded 100-acre peninsula on the southeast coast has a country-club, a vintage-Caribbean feel and a reputation for its top-notch service. Blessed with two white-sand beaches, it welcomes, families, friends and honeymooners with Hobie Cat sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkelling, scuba diving, thrilling tours and excursions, a gorgeous spa, tennis courts and a kids’ club.

An island paradise reached via a tropical lagoon, it includes Tahitian-inspired cottages with private plunge pools, an Instagram-perfect treehouse spa, beachfront yoga pavilion and a waterfall swimming pool.
The Verandah Resort & Spa 4* was built to be eco-friendly from the ground-up but doesn’t stint on fun for all ages, with two white-sand beaches, Antigua’s largest freeform pool, an 18-hole mini-golf course, tennis, Hobie Cat sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding and snorkelling, plus a tropical spa and a kids’ club.
