More All-Inclusive Overwater Bungalows Are Coming to Antigua 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 26, 2024

Blue Diamond Resorts is adding more overwater bungalows on the island of Antigua, with the imminent debut of its Royalton CHIC Antigua resort. 

The property, which has pegged late April for its debut, will have a collection of 12 “overwater suites,” joining the six overwater bungalows at its sister resort, the Royalton Antigua, which opened back in 2019. 

The new suites at the adults-only all-inclusive will come in three categories: chairman, presidential or junior suite.

The suites will include the presidential overwater bungalow, a 1,912-square-foot one-bedroom with a glass floor for in-ocean views. That’s along with a 1,138-square-foot luxury junior suite, with a private terrace, a plunge pool and direct ocean access. 

The biggest unit will be a two-bedroom suite, with two rooms, two separate plunge pools and overwater hammocks. 

“This is a milestone, not only for Blue Diamond Resorts but also for the All-Inclusive industry and the island of Antigua,” said Jordi Pelfort, President of Blue Diamond Resorts. “We have proven to ourselves and our guests that our All-Inclusive offering continues to provide unique experiences. We strongly believe that the addition of these Overwater Suites to the upcoming Royalton CHIC Antigua will make this resort one of a kind in the region.”

Guests at the overwater suites will get automatic Diamond Club access, including personal butler service.
