About Lighthouse Bay Resort, Barbuda

Exclusivity and seclusion take on new heights at Barbuda’s Lighthouse Bay Resort.  Situated on its own private island upon a narrow stretch of land between 17 miles of unspoiled pink sand beach and the clear turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea to the front and the blue-green serenity of Codrington Lagoon to the rear, privacy is guaranteed as the property is only accessible via S.V.G. (St. Vincent and The Grenadines) Airlines or helicopter.

With only nine beautifully appointed suites, guests enjoy unparalleled pampering and comfort with virtually no interruptions.  Each room’s amenities and technology allow guests to feel “plugged in” despite their remote location with flat screen satellite televisions, iPod alarm clock CD players, complimentary international telephone calls, personal laptops and iPads for guests’ use while on property, and Wi-Fi Internet connection.  For added convenience, complimentary laundry service is available for all guests.

Gastronomic pleasures are unrivaled at Lighthouse Bay as fresh, innovative cuisine and personalized daily menus include homemade breads and pastas, seafood and seasonal foods, creatively prepared by the resort’s highly-trained executive chef to invoke a truly inspired dining experience at each meal.
