Caribbean Island Vacation Known as one of the liveliest and most popular resorts in Antigua, The Grand Royal Antiguan Beach Resort is perfect for couples, groups and single vacationers. With its elegant accommodations, various on-site activities and gently sloping beach, guests will find unlimited entertainment for all ages. Our activities and entertainment ensure a stay that is fun-filled and enjoyable. The Grand Royal Antiguan offers such a range of things to see and experience, that you'll wish your Caribbean Island vacation would never end.

The spacious grounds of the resort are a lush paradise. Relax under a palm tree along the beach or read a book in the lovely, tropical gardens, filled with flowering plants. Guided tours through our extensive gardens are available for nature-lovers.



Pool
Our pool features two dramatic arcs, one measuring 120 feet with a swim-up bar, and the other measuring 60 feet with a shallow children's section. The terracotta deck is flanked by lounge chairs and thatched shades and is ringed by palm trees. Several days a week, a palmist plies her trade in a cabana near the pool. A playground is also located near the pool, which will be sure to entertain the kids.


Beach
The beach is a half-mile stretch along Deep Bay at the resort's western end, and is the hub for many non-motorized water sports. A water sports centre provides complimentary snorkelling gear, Sunfish sailboats, windsurfers, kayaks, water bikes and pedal boats to all of our guests. For a surcharge, the centre also offers parasailing, personal watercraft, water skiing, banana-boat rides, glass-bottom boat rides and cruises.

The Andes, a three-massed merchant ship that caught fire and sank 100 yards offshore in 1907 now rests in less than 30 feet of water in (ironically enough) Deep Bay. Its coral-encrusted mast can be seen poking out of the water during low tides. The underwater acrobatics of the ship's resident sea life proves to be a thrill for divers and snorkelling alike.


Resort Land Activities
Tennis

The resort boasts of eight championship tennis courts for complimentary daytime use (four hard courts and four omni grass courts). Tennis clinics are available for guests wishing to learn the game for a small surcharge. Tennis equipment is available at the resort.

Our small, air-conditioned fitness centre features cardio machines, a universal gym and free weights. An air-conditioned beauty salon, which offers massages, body wraps, scrubs and facials, is located next to the fitness centre.

For guests who wish to do a little shopping, a small selection of jewellery and gift shops is located in our hotel's open-air promenade. Also located on the promenade is our air-conditioned Internet café, with four computers that provide high-speed Internet at a surcharge.
