Royal Caribbean International and the government of Antigua and Barbuda, along with the assistance of the Consulate General of Antigua and Barbuda, have signed an agreement for the company’s first Royal Beach Club.
The agreement marks the start of the planning and development for the Royal Beach Club scheduled to break ground later this year.
Royal Beach Club Location in Antigua
The Royal Beach Club at Antigua will be located along more than a half-mile of pristine beachfront. The beach club experience will have private cabanas and a pool with a swim-up bar, and locally inspired experiences.
There will of course be the familiar island-style BBQs and live music. Water activities include jet skis, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and a family splash pad.
“The Royal Beach Club will deliver a memorable beach day to our guests,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, 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.”
With aggressive construction plans, Royal Caribbean has committed to bring Symphony of the Seas to the island nation with a port call on Nov. 3, 2020. Symphony will be the first Oasis Class ship to visit the island.

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.”
