 Antigua Charter Yacht Show

If you’ve secured your place at the show (or are planning to soon) now’s the perfect time to explore the accommodation options available and get yours booked! The earlier you book, the more choice you’ll have, and possibly the best prices too!

Antigua is a beautiful island so wherever you choose to stay you’re sure to have a fantastic time. The show will be a busy, action-packed week, so having the perfect place to come back to at the end of each day will make all the difference.

There is so much accommodation to choose from, so where to start? Here are some things to consider when choosing your accommodation:

  • How close to the show epicentre would you like to be based? Once you’ve decided this, you’ll know which areas to focus your search on.

  • Are you planning on extending your trip into a full holiday by tagging on days before or after the show? If so, what location would be best for that purpose?

  • How will you get around? If you’re planning on hiring a car, location will be less important as you’ll be able to get around easily, but if you’ll be relying on taxis, it’s something to consider.

  • Are you after a large resort packed full of facilities, a boutique hotel, or self-catering accommodation? There are plenty to choose from in all categories, but setting the boundaries at the start will make your search quicker and easier.

  • What are your accommodation must-haves? A sea view, close proximity to the beach, a pool, a choice of eateries and room size are all things that may be on your wish list.

  • How much do you wish to spend on accommodation? Decide on this before you start your search to ensure you don’t waste time looking at accommodation that’s over budget.

To make finding the perfect place to stay a little easier, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite hotels, all of which are conveniently located for the show. Ranging in style from beautifully historic to modern luxury, we highly recommend the following accommodation…

Admiral’s Inn 

The Admiral’s Inn is located within the walls of the historic Nelson’s Dockyard at English Harbour, so if you opt to stay here, everything really will be right on your doorstep! It has its own waterfront areas and courtyard, which can be enjoyed in the mornings or evenings or whenever you have a bit of downtime. The Inn has two restaurants to choose from, a spectacular infinity edged pool with sunbeds and hammocks, lush gardens, a spa and a small beach.

There are 23 rooms and suites of all types, all of which are ensuite. The rooms vary in size and character and offer different views according to their location in the old brick building. Rooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fans, some with a view of the harbour and others have a small patio with a garden or courtyard view. 

Catamaran Hotel

The Catamaran Hotel  is an 8-minute drive or 42-minute walk from Nelson’s Dockyard, making it close by and convenient for the show. The friendly and charming hotel dates back to 1968 and is owned and managed by one of the island's premier yachting families 'The Baileys'. Nestled between palm trees and tropical flowers, the rooms open up directly onto a small intimate beach, with a sunbathing deck and swimming pool.

The hotel has recently upgraded some rooms to ensure plus-sized persons can enjoy a comfortable stay at the resort. Balcony views extend straight out across the beach and beach access is available directly outside each room. The hotel’s Captain’s Quarters Restaurant & Bar offers both formal and informal alfresco dining and jaw-dropping views of Falmouth Bay.
