Just like us, celebrities need to escape for some R&R, and Antigua is just the place to do that. Its jagged coves, dramatic cliffs and pristine beaches make it the perfect getaway for anyone. 

Celebrities love Antigua so much, thanks to the secluded resorts away from the pesky paparazzi. In this slice of paradise, they can enjoy dreamy infinity pools and fine dining like no other and, most importantly, in peace.

The resorts in Antigua are famous for being discreet, so while we know that plenty of celebrities like to stay here, their names are not revealed. But luckily, some stars have posted Instagram pictures of themselves at their stunning resort so we can get a glimpse into their Caribbean adventure in Antigua. 

There are plenty of celebrities in Antigua, as many of them have homes on the islands. For example,  Oprah Winfrey has a home near Jumby Bay Island. 

Discover the top luxury hotels in Antigua and live like a celebrity in the Caribbean. 

Jumby Bay Island

Previously spotted A-list residents: Paul McCartney, Mariah Carey, Will Smith, Lionel Messi, Jim Carrey, Eddie Murphy, Justin Bieber, Oprah and Hilary Swank

Known for its privacy, Jumby Bay Island is a beautiful private island boasting a number of lavish suites, villas and even estate homes. Of course, it has the same pristine beaches and views of the mountain and lagoons that the other hotels have, but what makes this resort so special that celebs keep flocking to it? 

It’s in the small details. Arriving on the island via private yacht before heading to the soft sands for a picnic lunch, watching the most magical sunsets from your cabana or being pampered and soothed on the beach with a reinvigorating massage. 

Celebrities can have fun and relax here, knowing they’ll be left alone to enjoy their holiday, whether in the gourmet restaurants or on the seas on a catamaran. 

If you want to live your best luxury life at Jumby Bay Island, why not book a villa where you’ll experience the utmost extravagance?

Blue Waters Resort & Spa

Previously spotted A-list residents: Prince Harry

Whilst the guestlist is secret for this charming and luxurious resort. We do know that Prince Harry spent some time staying here during his 2016 Official Tour of the Caribbean.

We can see why he chose The Bue Waters Resort & Spa. The freshwater pools, incredible fine dining options, and stunning beach overlooking the lagoon are fit for a king (or prince). A stay here will certainly make you feel like a VIP. 

What makes this resort so special is the opportunities to relax and rejuvenate. There are nine pools to dive into across the resort. The adults-only pool is the highlight, which is serene, with the most idyllic views. The main pool is livelier, with evening music and plenty of Pina Coladas on tap.  

The resort prides itself on its natural aesthetic, such as the romantic wooden gazebos and the rustic ambience of the furnishings and decor throughout. 

Dine by candlelight at The Cove or stay relaxed and casual at the Pelican Bar, where you can watch the most mesmerising sunsets over the lagoon. 

From rejuvenating facials at the spa to private sailing lessons and a snorkelling trip to see the coral reefs, you’ll be treated like an a-lister the moment you arrive.

Carlisle Bay

The understated glamour of Carlisle Bay is what makes celebrities visit year after year. The location is super discreet, making it ideal for famous faces who want to escape the spotlight.

But you don’t have to be a celebrity to get the same exclusive service. Your luxe treatment starts the moment you land with fast-track passes through customs at the airport all the way through to your exceptional hospitality at the resort. 

A range of properties suit all types of visitors, such as large suites with gardens for families and romantic beachfront villas with infinity pools. The restaurants are indulgent with dishes that look like edible art. The Beach Restaurant is the place to be seen with elegant dishes of oriental cuisine.

Curtain Bluff

Previously spotted A-list residents: Elton John, Eric Clapton, Peter Gabriel and Jay Kay from Jamiroquai

Celebrities and famous faces love Curtain Bluff for all the extravagant reasons you’d expect. The immaculate Caribbean sea views, Morris Bay and the elegant suite options.

Expect the most outstanding cuisine, a serene and majestic spa facility, and so many activities; you’ll never be bored. From pickleball (yep?) to yoga and kayaking with expert instructors on hand to teach you something new every day. 

The award-winning spa is what really impresses with the most sensational views of Montserrat, Cades Reed and St. Kitts. You can sit back and be pampered with a Shiatsu massage before indulging in a herbal aromatherapy wrap. 

The restaurants are above-par, with the Tamarind being the knock-out venue. This traditional plantation-style restaurant serves fresh lobsters and the catch of the day with one of its 400 carefully selected wines from its cellar. 

Many celebrities may frequent Curtain Bluff, but you’re sure to feel like one the moment you arrive.
