HOTELS, VILLAS, APARTMENTS . . . MAYBE EVEN A MOTHERSHIP?
Antigua Sailing Week is based in English Harbour and therefore many people tend to focus on staying in the English and Falmouth Harbour areas. However, there is a huge choice of accommodation around the island that is easily accessible. Remember, you can drive to Regatta Headquarters from all corners of the island in about half an hour. For ease of reference we have pulled together a reference of some of the key accommodation with information about how far the accommodation is from the marinas and which marina it is located closest to. Check out the guide here – or read below for more accommodation listings.
There is an excellent choice of hotel accommodation across Antigua: small, quaint hotels with great character; huge all-inclusive hotels; and chic boutique properties with private pools. Check out the options at www.antiguahotels.org. Prices start at under US $100 per night in some of the more basic hotels while at the other end of the scale there are some beautiful luxury properties priced accordingly.
Antigua’s choice of villas is enormous. There are about 200 privately owned villas on the market – from Jolly Harbour waterfront villas which can be rented from about US $100 per night to absolutely breathtaking hilltop estates with daily maid service, in-house chefs and chauffeurs available 24/7. The options are endless and only limited by your imagination (and perhaps your pocketbook!). Check out www.antiguanice.com for a wide range of villas for rent directly by owner.
If budget is an important consideration, there are some excellent deals available island-wide in apartments, hotels and guest rooms. Check out two great sites at budget prices – www.antiguahotels.org and www.antiguanice.com.
If you prefer your crew to be located on the water, then chartering a yacht as a mothership is the perfect option. Check out the yacht charter pages of the Antigua Sailing Week website to find out what is available.
