It’s already Antigua’s most anticipated hotel opening of 2019 — but now the soon-to-debut Royalton Antigua Resort and Spa has announced another major component.
The 294-room all-inclusive hotel will include Antigua’s first-ever overwater bungalows set on Antigua’s Deep Bay.
The adults-only Diamond Club “Chairman Overwater Bungalows” are a collection of one-bedroom villas, each with special amenities including butler service, private transfers and yoga classes, among others.
Diamond Club is Royalton’s premium service category.
More importantly, every overwater bungalow has its own private infinity plunge pool, a hammock, a king-sized bed, a pullout couch, a private ocean entry from a private deck and a glass floor to “experience the ocean from the comfort of this luxurious villa,” according to the company.
The new Royalton Antigua is slated to open its doors on May 1, with everything from a spa to a casino and a kids club.
The new bungalows will make their debut in the second week of June, a company spokesperson told Caribbean Journal, with a total of six bungalows. That could include more in the pipeline pending further environmental studies.
The new bungalows continue a regional trend that began in earnest with the debut of Sandals’ overwater bungalows at its Sandals Royal Caribbean resort in Jamaica back in 2016.
