We just returned from a spectacular stay at Carlisle Bay, where the exceptional staff attended to every detail. The property itself is stunning, with impressive, generously sized suites overlooking the private beach and tranquil bay, surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation that is naturally beautiful and well manicured. The design of the hotel is also fresh and modern, while remaining sophisticated...

Visited this resort in April of 2016. Outstanding beach, pool and activities for adults and kids. Food was great, although not much variety from night to night. The two bedroom are great if you have kids and provides a beautiful water view. The staff and the concierge were extremely friendly, and made up for some of the bumps on a...

We stayed for 2 nights before spending the rest of our stay at a different hotel, and although our ocean view suite was to die for, and the beach was beautiful, all other things I have to say about this hotel are pretty negative. Firstly on arrival at ANU airport there was a representative from the hotel waiting for us...

Dear Abbi H, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us via Trip Advisor from your stay in May 2016. Our guests do pay for taxi transfers from and to the airport and this is advised during the reservation stage. Our non-motorized Water Sports are indeed complimentary. However, we do charge for all motorized boat trips. I am saddened to...

We stayed in a spacious and well-equipped ground floor Ocean Suite.Water, soft drinks and snacks are complimentary in the minibar, comfy daybed on the balcony makes a lovely spot for watching the sunset and handy mosquito screen door.

Carlisle Bay is a fantastic resort for those couples who want to relax and be spoilt. Excellent food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Watersports equipment available for loan from the beach for the more adventurous.The staff are fantastic with every single one happy to help. Not the cheapest place to go but well worth it.
