Sunwing-owned Blue Diamond Resorts will take over management and operation of Antigua’s largest all-inclusive resort, the 464-room Jolly Beach Resort & Spa, beginning 1SEPT.
“We look forward to bringing our operations to the beautiful Island of Antigua and to applying our management experience to this popular resort,” said Jordi Pelfort, Managing Director of Blue Diamond Resorts.
Jolly Beach Resort & Spa is set on 40 acres of lush gardens and greenery and fronts on the powdery sands of Jolly Beach.
The resort offers guests a selection of accommodations in six categories, each featuring a private balcony. Optional amenities including mini-fridge service, in-room coffee maker, Wi-Fi, and in-room safe are available at an additional charge.
For dining, guests can choose between four a-la-carte restaurants offering everything from Italian classics and authentic Indian to grilled catch-of-the-day options and jerk chicken. Hemispheres is the resort’s buffet option.
Every afternoon at Jolly Beach Resort & Spa, guests gather in the Courtyard for a spread of scones, pastries and a gourmet selection of teas.
Those who prefer to stay active on their all-inclusive vacation can take advantage of the basketball, tennis and beach volleyball courts, or the Jolly Sports Program for daily tennis and dance lessons.
A friendly competition takes place by the water with the Family Beach Olympics and kayak races, or guests can enjoy quiet time with authentic Antiguan arts & crafts, or a visit to the Palms Wellness Center.
