Antigua and Barbuda features on new series ‘The Big Body Hotel’


One of Antigua and Barbuda’s hotels, the Catamaran Hotel is now appearing on a major new primetime series “The Big Body Hotel” which started airing today on Discovery+ in the United Kingdom.

‘Big Body Hotel’, is an eight-part series that chronicles plus sized tourists on their Caribbean holiday in the beautiful twin-island paradise of Antigua and Barbuda.


As the Discovery+ website describes “The tourists check into the hotel designed with larger guests in mind and learn to embrace their bodies in a place where size is no obstacle to enjoying a care-free holiday.”

 Throughout the non-judgmental and uplifting show, the tourists participate in experiences at the ‘Resort’ hotel, which is Antigua’s Catamaran hotel.


The Catamaran Hotel, with plus-size facilities such as reinforced, enlarged furniture, is one of the only hotels in the world that can cater to the plus-size holidaymaker.


The tourists also explore Antigua with activities chosen to help them overcome their body confidence issues. There is an emotional unpacking of issues and the steps to help remedy them, are at the heart of the series.

In media coverage of the show, contestant Chris Conway tells the Blackpool Gazette “My experience on the show was fantastic and positive. We did water-sports and kayaking, which I would never have usually done. I would panic that the kayak would sink with me in it and I’d be embarrassed. We did a mountain hike and kickboxing, and it was stuff I enjoyed but never would have considered doing on holiday.

All eight episodes of the show are available on Discovery+ UK:

  1. No judgements, but fat is still fat. What we really need here is a “fat farm” where locals can get some of those pounds off, so their lives may be prolonged. We want them around for a long long time.

  2. Congratulations Catamaran Hotel for working with the series producers and creating a fully comfortable safe fun hotel experience for the participants.
    A new niche market for A&B !
    Good TV coverage timed just before UK allows its citizens to travel again.

  3. How about a gym class for a certain demographic encouraging people instead of criticizing them. I have ideas.

  4. Great Marketing effort!
