Greetings from the Hotel General Manager

Dear Guests, it is with pleasure that I be amongst the first to extend a very warm welcome to you, to the Galley Bay Resort & Spa. With an abundance of natural beauty, please make yourself at home and discover our glimmering turquoise beach, bird sanctuary where you will find the whistling ducks, yellow breasts among others. Don’t forget our very own Nursery and Herd Garden, where John the Head Gardener take you around every Tuesday for a Garden Tour. A rocking chair is waiting for you to watch the sunset from our deck!

Happy Holidays!
Paolo Rovoletto
General Manager

Beachfront rooms are in one-story West Indian-style buildings with corrugated red-steel roofs. Sea-view stone terraces with chairs and cocktail tables provide step-down access to the beach.

    Arrayed near the lagoon, cottages inspired by Paul Gauguin's vision of Tahiti consist of bedrooms and bathrooms in separate whitewashed huts with conical wood-singled roofs. Thatched breezeways connect huts. Small private gardens/sundecks with lounge chairs feature plunge pools.

    Each cottage consists of two separate thatched rondovals - one for sleeping - the other a bath/dressing room (shower only), connected by a sheltered breezeway. The plunge pools are either rectangular or freeform in shape, each one concealed from its neighbor by a combination of the lush tropical vegetation and screens made from natural Spanish heather. Flanked by paved sun decks, they measure either 7 ft x 9 ft. or 7 ft. x 13 ft. and are either step-up or level to the ground.
