Disconnect the laptop, re-connect with nature - and each other. Stay in a luxury tent on a deserted beach in the Caribbean and have the most romantic adventure of your life. Valley Church beach is spectacular; totally undeveloped and unspoiled. The gate to the beach is locked at sunset, so you have the entire beach to yourselves. The tents are beautiful, with a comfortable double bed, oak furniture and sofa. Each tent has its own outdoor shower set in a tropical garden. Fluffy towels and toiletries are provided. Cook your own Caribbean BBQ together. We provide a copper fire pit with charcoal and firelighters, and supply freshly seasoned meats, fish and vegetables for you to grill and enjoy. The sea is magical, especially on a moonlit night. Take a midnight dip or light a campfire on the beach and under the stars. It's the perfect time to sit and talk. Then fall asleep to the sound of the sea gently lapping the shoreline. Have the holiday you've worked for, stay at Wild Lotus Camp.

We stayed at Wild Lotus for 2 nights as part of our Honeymoon. We found the whole experience really refreshing after spending almost two weeks on the island staying in all inclusive resorts and Airbnbs. The setting on Valley Church beach is breathtaking. We were lucky enough to be the only couple staying in the camp so we basically had the beach to ourselves for much of the day. The water was crystal clear and perfect for swimming or snorkeling. The tents are well equipped and even have a safe. We slept really well on the comfortable bed and there was a breeze to keep you cool at night. A coolbox is supplied for your drinks as well as a battery pack charger and battery operated fans. Breakfast is served on the terrace belonging to the beach bar which is open for drinks and food during the day. We would highly recommend staying here for an unforgettable experience with nature that you just can't get in a resort.

There are no words to describe how magical staying at Wild Lotus is! The entire setting is so beautiful, from the turquoise water of the Caribbean sea outside your door to the incredible sunsets that happen every night. It's so comfortable inside your tent too, I couldn't believe how spacious they were! It's so relaxing falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and waking up and being able to step onto the beach. You can feel good staying here too knowing everything is completely sustainable. The outdoor shower is amazing - loved that it was surrounded by gorgeous tropical plants. If you're looking for a unique place to stay in Antigua, don't miss this spot!

Me and my friend were looking for different places to celebrate our birthdays. We both have birthdays in February and we try to outdo each other. But we ended up going to Wild Lotus twice we both loved it so much - that's how good it was. Wild Lotus sooo nice and chilled! The glamping tents were very comfortable and the outdoor shower gardens are just beautiful. In fact the whole landscaping of the beach is amazing, not sure how they got so many plants and trees to grow in the sand. My girlfriend was picking and eating fresh bananas that were growing in the shower! The restrooms are separate, and they've turned them into an art gallery displaying the work of local artists, which is really cool. There was a group of us and they let us check in early because of the COVID situation. We practically had the beach to ourselves all day. But for me the best thing is the BBQ and the fireball. Plenty of food, fish meat and vegan dishes, properly seasoned with different herbs and spices. The food is better than in most restaurants. We also had the bar and they provided wifi, cool boxes with ice, plus wine, beer and bottled water. The fireball makes the campfire experience very special, our friends loved it. It's a lovely place, and Paul and Vennetta are lovely people. Everyone should try this beach glamping thing at least once - if not twice!

This is a tricky review as we had like another review the bitter sweet benefit impact of COVID affecting the normal levels of visitors to this location. Rather than purely rave about it I hope the review below is balanced. POSITIVES: 1. Very comfortable tent with lots of clamping type supplies as described and as per website photos on an amazing beach with stunning sea. An amazing experience with atmospheric lighting inside and outside the tent. Very special. 2. Owners were very responsive to any requests and very friendly. 3. We were the only tent (of 4) occupied 4. Super beach BBQ made very easy to cook. A ‘must’ experience. 5. The fact that no cruise ships are visiting Antigua was a big big plus (though not for ‘Tourism Antigua’) as it meant that no bus loads were brought to the beach on day trips (which has resulted in the separately owned beach cafe ‘Nest’ being closed since the start of pandemic and I can’t see it being opened for a good while as it’s not a beach one can remotely see from the road, so no ‘passing trade’). This meant we had the beach pretty much entirely to ourselves (brilliant) apart from a very very few people walking along the beach from Cocos Hotel at one end. 6. Small sailing boats / paddle boards available to hire from vendor at end of beach adjacent to Cocos hotel. 7. If visit, strongly recommend the bike / kayak 2.5hr excursion run by Triflexcursion (Lotus can organise and on their website). Whilst bike / kayak for sure will not be the most wild you have ever done, it’s worth doing for the conversation with the two young guys who run it. Really interesting conversation and insights into every day Antigua life, history and current challenges for the country, we totally enjoyed it. NEGATIVES: 1. No toilet attached to the tent which is completely clear from the website description. However, the website shows photos of everything except the loos. They are c100m down the beach which whilst that is far from ideal it is as described so no surprise, but you really need to think of a school toilet built in c1980 and not updated since then. Really quite grim and if the beach re opens and volumes of users return to previous levels the experience would be nothing whatsoever which can be described as ‘glamping’. Bearable for our three nights as we were literally the only people using the loos as no one else on the beach. Would be a significant negative (even an overall ‘avoid’ rating) if needed to queue with high volumes of day trippers (women’s had three cubicles). 2. If volumes of beach users return to previous levels (unlikely any time soon) there are literally hundreds of beach beds currently stacked and locked up and ready to hire out from beach cafe if / when it reopens for the cruise boat trade. That would make the beach super busy and a totally different (and unattractive) experience to the one we had. Being alone on the beach made it super special and was key to our experience. 3. Unless keen to walk c.300m to the main road and then wait for an intermittent bus, to be able to visit any restaurant you need a hire car. Thankfully by chance we had hired one, but if visiting expecting to mostly use the beach cafe ‘Nest’ for meals (we weren’t advised in advance it was closed) you should check with owners before you arrive. 4. Beach chairs provided are heavy wood. Need to ask for sun beds which were readily made available as were beach towels when we asked. Overall: We totally loved the experience, it was very memorable as we were fortunate that no other tents were occupied which made the experience as good as it was so it’s a ‘4’ not a ‘5’ from us due to the loos. If cruise boats return and hoards are then bused for day trips to use the beach, for us it would be at best a 3 or even an ‘avoid’. If you are thinking about this for a secluded romantic unique experience, go soon if you can. We really loved it. Recommend this place and then a hotel after to get best of both experiences. Hope this helps!

Response from Chloe Johnston, Owner at Wild Lotus Antigua
Responded 11 Feb 2021
Hi Tim, Thank you so much for your kind comments and we're so glad to hear that you totally loved the experience! It is bitter sweet for Antigua that cruise ships won't be returning anytime soon. So many livelihoods depend upon them. That said, at about half a mile long, the beach never really gets super busy. Now that it has become clear that The Nest will not re-open, we're offering our guests a lovely all-inclusive glamping option, with our own cosy little beach bar, and each tent now has it's own designated loo in the unisex restroom block. Valley Church is one of the few remaining beaches that does not have a concrete hotel built on it and all the environmental damage that this entails. We hope that responsible travellers will appreciate this trade off, and value the way that glamping works with nature to create the kind of memorable experience that you enjoyed. We're looking forward to seeing you again soon!

My girlfriend and I stayed for two nights as a break from our more budget accommodation and we could not have been happier with our stay at Wild Lotus Camp. The tents are situated on an amazing beach and we had the bitter sweet benefit of the neighbouring beach bar being closed (hadn’t reopened due to COVID) so we had even more privacy than usual. The tents themselves were well kitted out with battery powered lights and fan, a battery charger for our phones and drinking water which was topped up by Paul when needed. We loved the private outdoor shower which had solar heated water. The barbecue was another highlight as it was all organised for us and Paul easily catered for my pescatarian diet. He even offered multiple barbecue tips which would benefit the inexperienced outdoor types. Paul and Vennetta could not have been more well prepared or helpful during our stay. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! An added bonus was the kayak rental down the beach which Paul suggested, at which we got a good deal for the day. Overall it was a really personal experience which made it all the more special. Definitely consider Wild Lotus if you find yourself in this part of the world.
