The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the chefs (Conrad and Desroy) could not do enough to accommodate my husband's special dietary requirements. We were so humbled and suitably...

If you want a party scene, this is not for you. The resort has one restaurant, one pool, one bar. Their are kids here, but not a loud,...

As vegetarians we can also state this is the first holiday in 18 years of being together that we enjoyed every meal and were provided with a choice each evening! Every member...

If you are considering coming to Antigua, I don't think you should go anywhere else but Hermitage Bay! This resort was the most accommodating, beautiful, and breath taking resort I've ever been to. No children allowed, just a pure ambiance of beach, beauty, rest, and relaxation. No words can describe the services that were given to us. The people were...

Hermitage Bay is truly paradise. The best vacation I've ever had. The staff is outstanding and the food amazing. The perfect resort to unwind and relax. The Hillside suite is worth the extra money. Views are incredible.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2017 & 2016 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 30 luxury cottages so that "even at its busiest, the place seems remote and quaint." Whether visiting for the first time or returning as a friend, you'll enjoy a welcome familiarity and "sensation of belonging" from the moment you arrive. Tucked into a beautiful bay in one of the most secluded corners of Antigua, it is perfect for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Spanning 16 acres of lush tropical gardens, our eco-chic, luxury hotel provides all the comforts of a 5 star resort without compromising the natural habitat that thrives around it. Our open-air facilities, extensive beach and detached rooms allow you to unwind in isolated luxury. Each of the 7 Beachfront and 3 Garden Suites features a spacious split level lounge and patio, while the large wrap-around decks and private plunge pools of the 17 Hillside Pool Suites afford the added luxury of soaking up the Caribbean sun from the privacy of your own sun bathing deck. Whether enjoying lunch by the pool, dining in the beachfront restaurant, or having breakfast in bed, every meal feels privately catered. The menus change daily and feature freshly squeezed local juices, locally grown produce, and organic ingredients. At Hermitage Bay, all dishes are prepared to order, special requests are encouraged, and we are always happy to help with dietary requirements. Non-motorised water sports are included and a shuttle service to and from town and Shirley Heights is available for an additional charge. ... more   less
