A New Wellness Experience at Carlisle Bay, Antigua

By Lauren Jade Hill

In its secluded setting on the shores of Antigua’s south coast and amid the island’s lush rainforest, Carlisle Bay provides guests with tranquility as well as a luxury stay. And now the resort has even greater appeal with the launch of their new wellness experience, Island Bathing.

Designed to help guests restore their inner peace while traveling, Island Bathing promises to connect each person with nature and improve their mood in turn. For this meditative wellness experience guests are transported by private boat to a deserted island where a wellness master leads them through guided meditation and breath work to the calming sound of gently breaking waves and palms rustling in the fragrant Caribbean breeze.

As a pioneering new offering, the treatment is available exclusively at Carlisle Bay, and while harnessing the power of the ocean and beauty of these surroundings, it is championed for allowing guests to reset and recharge, acting as an alternative to the traditional therapy shinrin-yoku, or Forest Bathing. Proving the therapy’s power as a mood booster, research from Columbia University in New York has shown that the negative ions created by pounding surf help enhance mood, stimulate senses, increase oxygen absorption and boost resistance to illness.

As a member of Leading Hotels of the World, Carlisle Bay excels in other regards too, seamlessly blending urban chic with Caribbean charm in each of its luxury suites, which comprise balconies and terraces that lead directly to the shore. And while the resort’s new wellness experience enables guests to embrace the surroundings, other excursions such as water sports, sailing and guided rainforest treks ensure they fully experience Antigua’s natural beauty.
