Overview

Galley Bay Resort & Spa has everything you could possibly need for a romantic beachside break. A sugary white three-quarter mile beach stretching out in front of a brilliantly blue lagoon, classic Caribbean architecture blending beautifully within acres of thick, lush foliage, wonderful open-air restaurants offering a peaceful spot to dine…

One of our favourite parts of this adult-only oasis is its location. A natural bird sanctuary, you may see the likes of pelicans, herons and frigate birds swooping ahead, whilst bright red ghost crabs scuttle across the floor. The azure waters just beg to be explored with a snorkel, or you could even grab a catamaran and spend an afternoon sailing.

The retreat may be stylish and rustically luxurious, but pretentious is a word that will never be used to define Galley Bay. Laidback couples who simply want to indulge in an all-inclusive stay and enjoy each other’s company will relish a stay here – and we especially recommend the Gaugin Cottages for an extra-special stay. With thatched roofs, an expansive sun deck and your very own plunge pool, you’ll be forgiven for wanting to spend your whole holiday in your romantic hideaway.

The resort’s restaurants are truly special, and our favourite of all is Gaugin. Who could resist dining in a private cabana right on the beach, gazing into each other’s eyes as you tuck into decadent cuisine? For a fun evening of letting your hair down, we love the TeePee Bar’s frozen Galley Bay Special, combining coconut cream, light rum, grenadine and fresh bananas to create a summery concoction.
