My husband and I stayed here on our Honeymoon. I don't know how to put it into words on how perfect of a trip this was. We stayed at Hermitage bay for 7 nights. The first two nights we booked a garden suite. Gardens are absolutely beautiful. Close to the beach, bar and restaurant. The next 5 nights we stayed...

I live in a vibrant and sometimes hectic community in the South of England, so I went to Hermitage Bay to get some alone time, a lot of sunshine, a touch of TLC - and to recover my general sense of wellbeing.  My expectations were exceeded on all fronts. The staff at HB were brilliant throughout. When I wanted to...

Hermitage Bay is truly paradise! We honeymooned here for 7 days and it was everything we could have hoped for. The staff were so personable and friendly, we were sad to say goodbye. Our room was kept in immaculate condition and all towels/mini bar/ toiletries were re-stocked once if not twice daily. The menus were different for every meal and...

From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff was warm and inviting. I cannot adequately describe how wonderful the staff was. Always friendly, always smiling. We stayed in the hillside villa with plunge pool. The view was incredible. You are facing west and can watch every sunset from the balcony, pool, shower, and even the bathtub! The room...

For our wedding we really needed a private spot. It was just beautiful! They took care of everything. I mean everything! Communication was the key and they listened, from the beginning! We really had a great wedding and stay there. Absolutely no problems, Hermitage was the best place I've ever been, and I've been places.

This is a very special place. As soon as you arrive, you feel peacefully tucked away from the rest of the world. The reception, dining, bar and pool areas are "embraced" by the pretty crescent shaped beach which is on either side and two green, scenic small mountains which complete the feeling to a true hideaway. The spacious individual villas...

From the beginning of our trip when we arrived late & had sandwiches waiting, to the last morning breakfast we enjoyed w/our new friends (the top notch staff), we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

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
