Restaurants and Bars
Keyonna Beach focuses on sourcing and using the very best of fresh, seasonal, local produce which is then simply prepared and elegantly presented – no buffets here, all freshly prepared a la carte service. Choices of vegetarian dishes are also always available and special dietary requirements are accommodated on request.
A new initiative started in 2016 is the visiting chef programme. Seven UK chefs have visited and have shared their culinary expertise with the resort’s team of chefs. The programme set to be an annual occurrence, will bring international chefs over on a regular basis, who have superb experience and international cuisines under their belt. Recent chefs who have visited, have worked in Michelin-star restaurants – Gordon Ramsay’s Restaurant L’ Aubergine and Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons to name but a couple.
At dinner to complement the superb cuisine, excellent wines presented by our knowledgeable wine steward, Raoul, are paired with the different courses, he will be happy to recommend wines and talk you through his recommendations for that evening’s menu. And to show we take our wine as seriously as our food, Raoul regularly goes to Europe to brush up on the latest wines and trends.

South Coast Horizons
A short taxi ride along the coast from Keyonna Beach, South Coast Horizons provides snorkeling and kayaking adventures, commencing through the protected mangroves out to Cades Reef, Antigua’s biggest coral reef. Enjoy a walk through the unique and exotic palm tree garden; relax in the shade of 900 palms which include the Date Alexander, the Butterfly and Fan palms and see the collection of exotic birds kept in a purpose built aviary.
The reef provides a collection of numerous dive spots, each offering large amounts of soft coral, such as sea fans, as well as a colorful marine life. It is divided into two sections – the outer area where divers and snorkelers can swim around to their heart’s desire, and the protected inner reef where much of Antigua’s rich marine life begins. The outer reef is where you can find a variety of large animals, such as barracuda, green and spotted moray eels, lobsters, eagle rays, and nurse and reef sharks. A part of Cades Reef has been turned into the Underwater Cades Reef Antigua Park, providing excellent shallow diving and snorkeling. Here, anyone can experience the joys of world famous diving in Antigua, no matter what diving level you are, or whether you are seasoned as a diver, or just a beginner.
Situated in the Rain forest about 10 minutes drive from Keyonna Beach, the Antigua Rain forest Canopy Tour is a unique eco-tour through Antigua’s lush rain forest where you embark on an unforgettable journey through the verdant forest, high above the trees. There are a series of zip lines, some in excess of 200 and 300-feet long, crisscrossing the gorge varying from 200 – 350 feet high. The tour also comprises short trails and suspension bridges, which are completed with a unique, absolutely safe, ‘Leap of Faith’, a controlled 36 -foot vertical descent to descend in a fun way!
The adventure starts out on land among the resident monkeys and parrots followed by a short speedboat ride to a shallow pool with a white sand bottom surrounded by beautiful coral reef. Enjoy a unique experience of touching and feeding a Stingray, together with snorkeling amongst magnificent coral reefs and colorful tropical fish.
