Let us introduce you to some of our favourite Elite Island Resorts...
Pineapple Beach Club, Antigua
Perched alongside one of Antigua’s most pristine white sand beaches, adult-only Pineapple Beach Club offers a delightfully chilled ambience. Days here are best spent flitting between relaxing on the sand and snorkelling in the ocean, or even resting in one of the water hammocks. We love The Outhouse, serving traditional Caribbean BBQ alongside laidback vibes and fabulous vistas, and the refurbished Garden Rooms are secluded and inviting.

The Verandah Resort & Spa, Antigua
Home to Antigua’s largest free-form swimming pool, it’ll come as no surprise that this resort has relaxation on its mind. This is one of our favourites for a sunny family holiday, thanks to the ultra-fun kid’s club with a splash pool and pirate ship playground, the charming mini golf course, and access to Elite’s Exclusive Pink Panther Island safari tours. After a few hours of exciting water sports, wander over to the new Lazy Pelican Beach Bar to grab a refreshing fruit juice for the little ones, and a zesty cocktail for the adults.

St James’s Club & Villas, Antigua
This gorgeous retreat is one of Elite’s most secluded, tucked away on an isolated 100-acre peninsula. Though family friendly, we do prefer this resort for a grown-up escape – there are a few adult-only pools for you to relax by, and the full moon Caribbean Beach parties are vibrant and fun. Fitness fanatics will certainly enjoy it here – give your body a full workout with the fun yet challenging Float Fit Caribbean Aquabase, or grab one of the new paddleboards for a sunset paddle. Fancy a snack after partying all evening? Mamora Bay Café is open 24-hours and is the perfect place to end an evening.

Galley Bay Resort & Spa, Antigua
This atmospheric adult-only boutique has all the hallmarks for an idyllic honeymoon stay in Antigua. Stroll hand in hand along the jaw-dropping stretch of white sand beach, treat yourself to a rejuvenating couples massage in one of the indulgent private treatment cabanas, and dine together on succulent seafood under individual palm-thatched shades at the Gauguin restaurant. We love that Premium Branded drinks are included in the price – it’s unusual but very welcomed, and one of our favourite ways to while away an evening is by tasting decadent rums at the Rum Shack.

Palm Island Resort & Spa, Grenadines
The culinary experiences at adult-only Palm Island Resort keep us coming back for more. Nestled alongside five stunning beaches in the Grenadines, foodies will relish a stay here. The two beachfront al fresco restaurants serve sumptuous cuisine with ingredients picked from their own nursery, whilst other unique dining experiences include private picnics and enjoying a secluded dinner under a heart shaped tree (additional charges apply for these). If you’re looking for the perfect enviable Instagram shot, take a seat on the double beach swing that looks out onto the ocean, or book to swim with turtles at the Tobago Cays.

St James’s Club Morgan Bay, St Lucia
This is another one of our family favourites, with a fabulous location between St Lucia’s Castries and Rodney Bay. With the epic kid’s club included, you can rest easy knowing the kids are having a whale of a time meeting new people, embarking on treasure hunts and even learning how to cook Caribbean cuisine. Grab the whole family together for a delicious snack at the Mobile Ice Cream Cart; you’ll all have fond memories of sitting by the beach with sticky fingers and big smiles. There are also six different restaurants for if you have picky eaters, including a fun Beach BBQ Hut.

The Club Barbados Resort & Spa, Barbados
This stylish adult-only resort in Barbados has the exclusive beach club vibe that all young, discerning travellers are searching for. Perched along the luxurious west coast, The Club is infused with glitz and glamour, including a beautiful Piano Bar, a trendy Sunset Bar & Lounge with sumptuous cocktails and gourmet coffee, and a spacious outdoor patio doused in sunshine and boating an enticing al fresco dining space. We treasure an afternoon spent on the turtle watching boat tour that departs directly from the resort – the supplement is worth the money to see these gorgeous creatures in the wild.

Hammock Cove Resort & Spa, Antigua
Opening in December 2019, you could be the first to discover this Antigua resort, set to be one of the most stylish retreats on the island. The 42 villas are very indulgent indeed, each one boasting its very own scenic lanai and private infinity edge plunge pool overlooking the ocean. If you can peel yourself away from your personal cocktail counter and stunning outdoor living area, there’s a romantic seafood restaurant to try, laidback water sports and a weekly cocktail party to mingle and drink under the stars.
