Hugging a nearly mile-long stretch of beachfront, the Galley Bay
Resort is between the bay and a tranquil lagoon. This means nearly all of its beach accommodations face the
water, some with private balconies, some only footsteps from the white sand. It's an all-inclusive resort for those aged over 16, and guests can borrow non-motorised water sport equipment for free -- try windsurfing, paddle boarding or kayaking. But be warned, the water is often too rough for swimming.
There are three room categories, two of which are set right on the sand. Some
suites have separate sitting areas with sofa beds, in neat spaces with
tile floors. Tucked onto the lagoon side of the
property, the Gauguin Cottages have thatched roofs and cosy interiors
that open to private plunge pools. Drinks in the mini bar are complimentary (refills are not included), and there is air conditioning throughout. Wi-Fi is free in the public areas of the hotel (not the bedrooms).
All-inclusive rates come with
all dining, including a buffet at the Sea Grape Restaurant served overlooking the surf, plus fine
dining served in private thatched-roof cabanas hidden among the palm
trees. You can eat at Ismay's Restaurant and Bar for an extra $35, with island cuisine on the menu. Sea Grape often has live Caribbean steel drum music to accompany its weekly barbeque, or have a drink at the Lounge Bar, which has nightly performances and ocean views.
Fanning out from the lagoon are a bird sanctuary, hiking trails,
and massage decks that are part of the spa.
