With the plethora of luxury resorts and boutique hotels in the Caribbean it's difficult to stand out, but Hermitage Bay does a good job. Our hillside suite, perched on the side of the hill as one would expect given the name, had a spectacular view of the bay and adjacent hillside. Our private plunge pool was perfect for an afternoon...

We're here now with our college age children and their girlfriends/boyfriends--everyone is having an absolute ball…they are happy to be on the beach all day and enjoy dinners together at night…very chill family time!

Food: Excellent, inspired even, especially the lunches. Setting: Magical, one of the most serene and lovely beaches I've ever been to. Room/Villa: We were in a hillside pool villa and the view, the layout, the decor were all exquisite. Housekeeping was invisible and flawless. The plunge pool and decking around the villa were beautiful and perfectly integrated into the landscape....

From the moment you arrive at the airport, you are transported to a place far beyond reality where your biggest worry might include what to drink off of their amazing cocktail list or perhaps it could be choosing what to wear to dinner each night. Those were my worries anyway as I enjoyed the most relaxing honeymoon with my husband....

I could write hundreds of compliments about this hotel, but the one thing that stands out above everything else is the exceptionally friendly, attentive, and personalized service that virtually every employee at Hermitage Bay provides. 7 days away from New York were pure heaven at this beachfront retreat. I can't wait to go back.

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

“The ocean front cabanas were perfect for us. We've stayed at Jade Mtn in St. Lucia and experienced the mountainside room with pool. We truly enjoyed the convenience of the room being so close to the beach, water and the restaurant. ”
