Hermitage Bay is a luxurious, natural and peaceful paradise nestled in a hidden cove on the South West coast of Antigua. Surrounded by lush, untouched hillside and tropical gardens (140 acres of it!) and overlooking the crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, the 30 individual suites are the perfect place for those looking to escape the stresses and strains of life.
Each suite is constructed from purpleheart, greenheart and other woods from sustainably managed forests in Guyana, giving guests the feeling of being at one with the natural environment but with all the indulgences you would expect from this luxury resort.
With 13 suites located on the beachfront, they are quite literally beach in / beach out living. The remaining 17 villas are dotted along the hillside to achieve maximum privacy and views, where in the
distance, the islands of Montserrat, St. Kitt’s and Nevis form silhouettes on the skyline. The décor is one of natural luxury - pristine white linens, ivory cushions and creamy white walls which soften the rich hues of the locally sourced wooden floor and furniture.
Hermitage Bay is better suited to couples - those looking to laze on one of the many beach beds or indeed your own veranda - or if you are feeling more energetic the buzzing Jolly Harbour is just a ten minute drive away, offering shops, restaurants, golf and tennis.
While the hotel is close enough to accommodate day trips into town or excursions around the island, a private, unmade road separates Hermitage Bay from the rest of the world, contributing to its seclusion.
Antigua is the quintessential Caribbean island, caressed with warm, steady winds, fringed by a complex of safe harbours and protected by an almost unbroken fringe of coral reef.
Like so many of the islands in the region, Antigua was settled by tribes from Central America but it was the arrival of Spanish conquistadors in 1493 that brought the first contact with European conquistadors – indeed the name Antigua means ’old’ from an ancient icon that resided in the Cathedral in Seville from which many of the settlers came. The English harbour, famed for its shelter at times of storms, was Nelson’s principal naval base in 1780s making Antigua Britain’s gateway in and out of the Caribbean.
This historical legacy is seen today in restored dockyard areas teaming with recreational and business activity, former slave plantations that can be visited, and an annual world class sailing regatta of international importance – and of course cricket, the national sport followed assiduously by the islanders.
If you can tear yourselves away from your villa there is much to see and enjoy on the island, with distances conveniently compact. There are countless sun drenched beaches of white sand such as Cades Reef or Falmouth Harbour from which you can swim in crystal clear aquamarine water even perhaps hiring a sailing boat with a skipper and exploring the coastline and other islands.
