Luxury bepoke holidays to Hermitage Bay, Antigua

Hermitage Bay in Antigua opened during the last few years and is a luxurious boutique resort of just 30 individual, cottage suites landscaped into the natural beauty of a bay and hillside of tropical gardens overlooking the white sand beach which is 1200 feet long. The bay was discovered a few years ago by the current owners of the hotel in one of the most secluded corners of Antigua and the land had been in private ownership for over a hundred years. The cottages nestle into the hillside and also are landscaped along the beach facing the beautiful white sand. Hermitage Bay is managed by people who have worked in Antigua for many years and they have selected their staff carefully for their friendliness and efficiency. Service is discreet and attentive. Your days can be spent on the beach, partaking of some of the non-motorised water sports on offer (no motorised ones are available to maintain the peaceful environment), enjoying a spa treatment, either in the peaceful ambience of the spa itself or the privacy of your beachfront or hillside pool suite, or even lounging by the pool or in a private area of the gardens. Hermitage Bay's beachside restaurant, tiered at different levels to afford each table a spectacular view, serves a varied menu of both Caribbean favourites and modern European with the emphasis on fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Lunch is also offered around the shaded patio and pool areas. The cottage suites are detached and are built from tropical hardwoods and have shingle roofs. They are decorated in white and neutral shades and have contemporary colonial furnishings. The hillside suites have a spacious deck area that incorporates open air lounge area, dining area and day beds. In addition these suites have their own plunge pool and panoramic sea views. The beach cottages are located in two rows just back from the beach and all have a large veranda with day bed. Hermitage Bay is a charming, luxurious, intimate hideaway, quite unique for Antigua.

Hermitage Bay has 30 Cottage Suites with king bed, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, bathroom with indoor bath, garden shower, electronic safe, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, LCD TV, DVD player, iPod dock.

About Antigua

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Antigua is an indulgent getaway in a paradise setting. Antigua, the largest of the Leeward islands, has a cosiness and charm that welcomes the first-time visitor to the Caribbean and yet has an ease and sophistication that makes it attractive for those returning for rest and relaxation. The island is home to a great range of luxury hotels and resorts including Carlisle Bay, a boutique hotel located on a beautiful sandy beach which offers a great range of activities; and Hermitage Bay, an intimate and charming hideaway which is ideal for relaxation. Antigua is a low-lying island of yellowish green rolling hills that are gentle on the eye, but it is the spectacular coastline of long sweeping white sand beaches, inlets, bays and coves that is undeniably glorious. The island is surrounded by a sea of turquoise green and deep dark blue protected by coral reefs and on the eastern Atlantic edge cliffs and boulders form excellent perches for pelicans. The cosiness of Antigua is enhanced by the cheerful villages with names such as Liberta, Tyrells and All Saints with their numerous churches and colourful gardens surrounding the gaily-coloured houses, many painted vibrant greens, blues, yellows and pinks.

Highlights of Antigua

Cricket is the national sport of Antigua. Wadadli is the local beer. There are an exceptional number of places of interest to visit including museums, quaysides, old plantations. Some examples are Parham Harbour and St Peter’s Church, Betty’s Hope old sugar plantation and Harmony Hall, restored Great House with a craft centre. Falmouth, English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard is one of the most picturesque and beautiful harbour areas in the Caribbean. A few of the outstanding beaches on the island include Dickenson Bay, Soldiers Bay, Hawksbill Beach, Galleon Beach and Darkwood Beach. Carnival is at the end of July. Fig Tree drive between Old Road and Liberta is through the rainforest.

Travel around Antigua

The roads are fine except for a few potholes. Car hire is easily arranged and highly recommended. Traffic on a Saturday can be quite heavy in St John’s but you can find parking places. Distances are not too great so it really is easy to get around. Signposting is lacking, and an ordnance survey map is more accurate than tourist maps provided locally.
