Antigua resort refurbishes on-property restaurant

Blue Waters Resort & Spa, Antigua’s luxury all-inclusive resort, completed its newest phase of major resort-wide renovations. Following suit on previously completed updates to guestrooms and the fitness center, the latest upgrades include refurbishments to Bartley’s restaurant and introduction of a soon-to-launch bespoke wellness and nutrition program.

Bartley’s Restaurant, one of Antigua’s only restaurants offering air-conditioned dining, has received a new contemporary laid-back look. Utilizing design elements from nature, the revamped interior incorporates vibrant colors such as turquoise of the sea, hot pinks of the bougainvillea, lemon yellows of the frangipani and bright greens of lush foliage set against a natural timber floor and white painted wooden paneling. A blue limestone-topped bar with generous bar stools allows guests to linger over an aperitif or unwind with an after-dinner rum tasting. 

Coupled with the renovations, in 2017 Blue Waters will debut ‘The Living Retreat’ program in partnership with UK wellness brand Living Retreats. The new program will transform the resort’s wellness amenities to bring guests a series of personalized, bespoke wellness programs, nutritional guidance, fitness sessions and more.
