The Newest Royalton CHIC Resort Will Open in Antigua


Following the vibrant success of the Royalton CHIC Resorts concept in Cancun and Punta Cana, Blue Diamond Resorts is proud to announce the opening of Royalton CHIC Antigua in late 2023 on the idyllic Dickenson Bay Beach, Antigua.

This new 227 room five-star beachfront resort will bring a unique adults-only social vacation experience to this Caribbean region where singles, couples, friends and groups can party their way.

Conveniently located only eighteen minutes from V. C. Bird International Airport, this completely renovated resort will be full of vivacious offerings making it the ultimate destination for adult getaways.

“Whether for relaxation or a lively luxury beach getaway, the Party Your Way concept that Royalton CHIC Antigua will bring to this region is unique within the All-Inclusive segment,” says Jordi Pelfort, President of Hotels and Resorts at Sunwing Travel Group.

“We have been committed in delivering groundbreaking experiences to our guests and Royalton CHIC Antigua will be no exception. We are thrilled about what this new property will mean for Antigua, as well as the Caribbean region.”

Discerning travelers can expect day-to-night activities available such as themed pool parties and DJ sets, as well as a range of gourmet dining experiences including five fascinating bars with mixology and six reservation-free dining restaurants.

Should guests choose to experience peak relaxation instead, Royalton CHIC Antigua will present multiple opportunities to satisfy that craving, including lounging beneath the sun, sipping handcrafted cocktails beside the serene beachfront pool, or getting pampered at Royalton CHIC’s world-class spa.

A distinct feature of this property will be an overwater themed restaurant, exclusive to Royalton CHIC Antigua. This restaurant will be constructed over the sea, providing guests with a diningtainment concept, a mix between entertainment and dining.

  1. How come I do not hear the UPP saying this is another one of their plans that was left on the table for the ABLP. I mean come on guys, be consistant and claim everything as being yours. Just like Sandals was yours to. And you brought Butch to Antigua in 1993

  2. Halcyon resorts always had an overthesea dining experience.
    We, Nationals and Citizens need to keep a close watch on Dickensonbay Beach. We need assurance that we will still have access to one of our most iconic beaches.
    Will be keeping my eyes on this space.

  3. Joan there is an access road between Halcyon and Sandals. That road that lead down to shorty’s beach bar. In the vicinity where his son now operate a restaurant and water sports business. Always a bit crowded because the sandals staff usually park along the road.
    What we need to be careful with is that our governments overload these investors with duty free exemptions and enormous tax breaks , at the end nothing for Antiguans in terms of Jobs.
    When I speak of Jobs I am talking about middle management to upper management jobs. Let’s tKe The Royalton Antiguan Resort for example. They import an influx of foreign workers. Actually overdone to the point that it’s GM, assist GM almost right through. Even down to front office where they don’t bring in Mexicans , they bring in Latinos . Even the Dominican Republic folks that resides in Antigua get preference over Antiguans- picky head Antiguans. I believe those people look down on Picky Head Antiguans.
    Notice in the recent double homicide the HR and an accountant staff were from Mexico , another is said to be assisting the police. Even if the salaries are less they have to feed them and were paying accommodation at Pillar Rock. That incident brought to my attention the amount of foreign workers at this hotel.
    Who is authorizing these work permits.The picky head Antiguans are displaced in All walks of life in Antigua. Mark you i am not seeing an influx of our Caribbean brothers and sisters but Mexicans , Serían, Chinese, Europeans , Indians and so on.
    They are getting preference in the high paying – upwards mobility Jobs.
    Our politicians believe that they alone can run anything. They can run the country, run the airport, the sea port, the hospital, ministry of finance, PWD , foreign ambassadors, Minister of tourism and director of tourism and education and culture- get my point? However, fu are we picky them that go to school, collage, university and come back with degrees, master and doctorates must pack shelves or migrate.
    Time to empower the indigenous picky head Antiguans. After all these years don’t tell me that not one Antiguan can be the comptroller of customs. Don’t tell me that he is clean because from the time he took the political bed appointment to be on St. John’s development Board i smelled the stinking rat . Worst yet Baba is his boss as Chairman of St.John Development. Me say Harold is time to empower the black picky head Antiguans. Like ACLM did when you guys had community development projects. Time to develop our people by giving them good jobs. Even if we have to bring Antiguans from the diaspora to lead the charge and then pass it on.
    I have a dream that one day I will see black picky head picky managing our hotels, our HR’s , our Customs . I have a dream!!!!!!
