The newest all inclusive resort in Antigua is here. No old or dated fixtures is perhaps one of the main draws. Certainly a resort befitting the LUXURY tag where there may be elements of doubt depending on your own definition. All-In Luxury is a registered trademark and concept for Blue Diamond Resorts who own/manage the Royalton Antigua.
Without doubt the Royalton has set a benchmark the likes of Sandals and Jumby Bay will compete with.
The Luxury Antigua resort attracts a wide variety of vacationers inclusive of families too- but this is not a resort for those with limited budget. With a wide range of dining options and activities on offer you will struggle to find time to enjoy Antigua outside of the grounds and do everything on offer within!
Situated on the west coast and the beach a short walk, or dwellings over water you are not far from being able to cool down and enjoy the Caribbean sea. Deep Bay is a lovely example of a Caribbean paradise along with the beach, a fine example.
It’s always nice to have a short transfer (30 minutes) in and out, the Royalton is just 30 minutes away from the airport.
There are 3 kinds of accomodations at the basic level which are further classified by view and package such as Diamond Club for example.
Junior Suite Bay or Mountain View
Not a great difference in price between the opposing views. No Antigua doesn't strictly have mountains!
These rooms make up the majority share of the resort.
This luxury suite features one king or two queen beds with beautiful views of the hills or bay. This room is complete with a rain shower and a sitting area with a sofa bed.

Enjoy local and international delights in buffet-style or à la carte dining venues, then grab a signature cocktail, and mingle with other guests at the many on site bars. Treat yourself to a mid-afternoon coffee and exquisite dessert at the cafe."

Gift Shop, Tennis Court, Gymnasium Fitness Room, kids playground with climbing wall.
Arguably one of the best Spas on the island (The other being the Aveda Spa in Sugar Ridge Resort). Modern and full featured with a great range of treatments.
There is entertainment throughout the day (e.g. pool aerobics) and nightly. Currently a curfew is in operation in Antigua to prevent the spread of Covid19 but inside the grounds you are fine.
Weddings and Honeymoons Special Occasions
The Royalton is a popular destination wedding resort. With the ability to get all your guests in one place provided you have planned in advance some excelent location photo opportunities it is a good option for tying the knot. Honeymooners book up to get the special treatment and celebrate the special occasion. The Royalton offer packages and options for you.
Is Diamond Club (DC) Worth It?
This is a very individual question and the answer lies within what it gives you. The main upgrades are with room types/areas (including beach area and a pool) and exclusive menus and dining areas. A butler service exists for you too. There is an exclusive bar for your use at the main pool and also next to your exclusive DC Cabanas. Check in is also different for DC members. The Chaiman bungalows and Swim/Out Suites come with Diamond Club included so just check if you want it as an extra or if it is already included. Other extras are preferential bookings at a la carte restaurants. Those are the bigest perks.

Located in the west side of Antigua. Nothing is super far away in Antigua where this resort is there is nothing on offer outside of the resort grounds in the sense of shops, nightlife or restaurants. Make sure you bring sunlotion and bug spray as the import tax in Antigua makes everything more expensive. See our shop for ideas of things you might need.
