West Indies vs England 2019 – Standard Three Test Tour

22nd January – 14th February 2019

In Antigua and Barbados, cricket goes far beyond sport; it’s a part of life, weaving a vibrant strand through the islands’ rich shared heritage. Only for cricket are individual island rivalries forgotten, as proud Banjans, Antiguans, St Lucians and many others unite under one flag, that of the west indies cricket team. With this tour you will get to see world class cricket in the tropical surroundings of the Caribbean.

This is an example package that we can offer, please use it as a guide and contact us to create the perfect trip for your requirements. For those a little strapped for time and preferring a shorter travel itinerary, we have several alternative options available, click here for further information.

There is a lively vibe at this beachside resort that offers something for everyone from singles and couples to families, who will love the accommodation choices and children’s programme that operates during the holidays. Its Panorama Roof Deck provides something completely different for Barbados; affording views of both island and sea it’s ideal for a daytime change of scene from the beach and main pool, an oasis where you can enjoy drinks, snacks and plunge pool in an adults-only environment. At night a cool cocktail with a view is the perfect start to any evening!

St James’s Club, Antigua
The landscaped grounds of St James’s Club sweep down to two beautiful white sand beaches – Mamora Bay Beach and Coco Beach on the aquamarine Atlantic. All accommodation provides a sense of privacy and oneness with nature, whether you opt for a villa in The Village area, which tumbles down a gently sloping hillside towards the beach, or a room in The Club section, near the resort’s restaurants and activities. Accommodation choices include spacious villas, suites and hotel-style rooms with stunning water views or serene garden settings. The ambience is low-key and comfortably casual. It’s easy to disappear from the world and fill your days with outdoor-orientated activities, including tennis, non-motorised watersports or joining in the games for children of all ages. Four restaurants range from casual waterside dining to romantic settings with panoramic views and eclectic menu offerings to please every palate. Wind down with a cocktail and listen to a live band, while nearby, golf, shopping, tours and excursions can be arranged by the capable and accommodating guest services staff.

Coco Palm, St Lucia

Whether you’re travelling as a family or in a couple the resort can offer the allure of a lagoon-style swimming pool, spa treatments and al fresco dining. Service is very welcoming and personalised with your own concierge to ‘host’ your stay. The guestrooms use a Creole décor and feature plantation-style furniture, with ‘swim-up’ rooms available so you can go straight from your terrace into the lagoon pool. Or if days spent lazing on the beach are up your street the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to the golden sands of Reduit Beach. The island itself is a wonderful place for a honeymoon, family break or indeed any other kind of holiday; with lush rainforests, volcanic peaks and excellent beaches, as well as plenty of activities such as golf or snorkelling, and a vibrant nightlife for those who enjoy a more energetic break
