This family-run hotel nestled amongst the palm trees and overlooking peaceful Falmouth Harbour near historic Nelson’s Dockyard, is a gem of a property and has become a firm favourite with Solos guests.
The Catamaran Hotel was opened by the renowned Antiguan Yachtsman Sir Hugh Bailey and has been passed down to his daughter Feona and her son Colin, who offer a warm and friendly welcome.
If an intimate and traditional beachfront hotel is your idea of paradise, then this is the perfect choice for anyone looking to escape the hectic pace of life. For 10 nights, the hotel is exclusive to Solos guests and embodies the same personal feel that can be found at all our Solos Exclusive properties. Feona, Colin and the rest of the team provide a wonderful and memorable experience and are always on hand for your holiday requests.
Relax & Unwind
The Catamaran’s swimming pool affords stunning sea views. Grab a sun lounger, order a drink from the hotel bar and relax and unwind for as long as you like. It’s just a few steps from the pool to a small beach. None of the beaches in Antigua are private however, it is rare for anyone other than hotel guests to use this beach. Feeling active? There are no organised beach activities but you can go sailing straight from the beach and diving and hiring of sunfish dinghies and rowing boats can be arranged via the hotel reception. In the evenings, we’ll dine together at the hotel’s Captain’s Quarter’s Restaurant & Bar, which offers waterfront alfresco dining. With an unrivalled view of the Marina and Falmouth Bay, the setting will take your breath away – whether at breakfast or during our 10 included dinners.
The 18 tropical-inspired rooms fall into seven categories, with sizes, facilities and views reflected in our individual room prices. Standard Rooms are the smallest and offer all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. As these rooms do not have a terrace or balcony, a small table and chairs will be set out in the courtyard so that you don’t miss out on those blissful ocean views.
The ground-floor beachfront rooms have a shared terrace and are a few steps from the hotel’s small beach. Superior-View Suites are found on the first floor and offer breath-taking panoramic views of the beach and Falmouth Bay beyond, from the private balcony. Three wood-panelled Captain’s Cabins are set apart from the main building and overlook the swimming pool and offer private access to the beach. For 2024, we now feature two newly refurbished, individual Cottage suites which are set apart from the main building. The Upper floor Cottage offers full sea views and the Lower floor Cottage partial sea views. The first-floor Admiral’s Suite is the most spacious and boasts fabulous views of Falmouth Bay and the beach from the balcony.
This stunning island has much to offer. The lively Pigeon Point Beach is a short drive away from the hotel, as is Shirley Heights, an 18th-century fort that commands fabulous views. You can experience the Antiguan favourite, a Sunday-night sunset party here, or enjoy a communal barbecue where locals, the yachting set and visitors alike let down their hair.
No visit to a Caribbean island would be complete without a catamaran cruise and on our circumnavigation tour, you’ll enjoy a full day’s adventure cruise around Antigua’s dazzling coast with a chance to snorkel and swim in turquoise waters.
