Luxury Holidays at Carlisle Bay

Carlisle Bay opens onto a ravishing sandy beach and the kind of sheltered bay Robinson Crusoe would never have left. Gordon Campbell Gray’s Caribbean venture is all that you would expect from this visionary hotelier and his interior design partner, Mary Fox Linton. Together, they have set a regional precedent and created a contemporary style with a hint of Asia. Cool interiors, crisp Frette bed linen, generous amenities and a large day-bed on every terrace and balcony (to appreciate the outstanding ocean views) come as standard in the one- to three-bedroom all-suite accommodation.
