Galley Bay Resort & Spa is an extraordinary exclusive retreat, perfect for the discerning traveler. Its natural elegance, classic Caribbean charm and Gauguin-inspired Tahitian-style set this all-inclusive haven apart from the rest.

More than three-quarters of the accommodations lie directly on the white sand beach; the remainder tucked away in the gardens and boasting their own private splash pools.
