Royal Caribbean International is to build its first Royal Beach Club in Antigua after signing an agreement with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda.
The beach club will be built along a half-mile of beachfront in Antigua, offering ocean views from the private cabanas and swimming pool. The club will feature a range of locally inspired experiences, including regional cuisine, island-style barbecues and live music.
“The Royal Beach Club will deliver a memorable beach day to our guests,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International. “Together with the government of Antigua and Barbuda, we will bring to life an experience that will bring more visitors to these idyllic islands and create significant economic benefits and opportunities. In addition, we are looking at ways for the local community to also enjoy the beach club on days our ships are in other destinations.”
The cruise line will also bring Symphony of the Seas to the island with a call scheduled in the capital of St John’s on 3 November 2020.
“The Government of Antigua and Barbuda is truly grateful and appreciative that Royal Caribbean’s first Royal Beach Club will be in Antigua, which confirms confidence in our twin island state,” said Charles Fernandez, the Minister of Tourism, Economic Developments and Investments for Antigua and Barbuda. “We are also excited to share our beautiful island with guests sailing aboard Royal Caribbean ships when they begin calling to the island later this year.”
