The Lighthouse Bay Resort, a private island resort in Barbuda, a 15-minute flight from Antigua, recently celebrated its grand opening with local government and tourism officials and a resort full of U.S. and international guests. Mike Branker, owner of Lighthouse Bay Resort and a native of Barbuda, petitioned the government in1998 to reinstate his grandparent's lease on their land on Lower Bay. Branker cut the ceremonial ribbon for the grand opening, along with Trevor Walker, parliamentary representative for Barbuda. Following the ceremony, guests were entertained with music from a local Antigua band. Groups were taken by boat to experience the largest frigate bird sanctuary and nesting grounds in the world just 10 minutes away.


Lighthouse Bay Resort features nine ocean-front guest rooms and suites, personalized service from a staff of 25, resident gourmet chef, fitness center, 24-hour concierge and roof-top restaurant with 360-degree ocean views. The resort was recently recognized in the New York Times Travel Section as Number 3 of "39 Reasons To Go To The Caribbean This Year." Lighthouse Bay is base camp to explore Barbuda's tranquility and signature activities of sailing, diving, exploring hidden caves and bays, shell hunting and horseback riding.
