Luxury bepoke holidays to Nonsuch Bay, Antigua

In a protected cove on the east coast of Antigua, Nonsuch Bay Resort occupies a remote plot with access to a rare commodity: a private beach. The setting is idyllic, surrounded by  the vivid blues of the Bay's calm waters and the lush vegetation that encircles the resort. Within the property's confines, enjoy luxurious lawns dotted with swaying palms. These grounds are landscaped to create three plateaus that descend towards the beach, on which reside Caribbean colonial-style structures that curve around the arc of the bay. This arrangement maximises the expansive views. Accommodation options depend on the guest's favoured proximity to the beach. The Premium Beach Cottages and Suites are mere steps from the sand, while two rows of Deluxe Suites are further back but boast undisturbed views thanks to their elevated position. On the lawns that divide these structures, two swimming pools beckon the guest to take a dip, with their infinity edges creating the illusion of disappearing into the sea. A third infinity pool is poised on the cliff's edge, creating quite a dramatic impression. Located adjacent to the restaurant and bar, this is the best spot to enjoy an atmospheric drink or poolside bite accompanied by sea breezes. This restaurant is of a five-star standard, with Caribbean influenced cuisine served in a timber pagoda, with open walls presents floor-to-ceiling vistas across to Wilkies Bay. One of the biggest draws of Nonsuch Bay appeals to water sports lovers as the main activities available here include kayaking and stand up paddle boarding, while the kite surfing and windsurfing school offers tuition to beginners. There is also a sailing school for guests as young as seven years old, which, thanks to the stillness of the waters, is very safe. Snorkelling adventures take place at the nearby Green Island, where exquisite turquoise waters are accessible directly off the beach, promising vivid displays of all manner of underwater life. If you are lucky enough, you may even spot some dolphins. Nonsuch Bay is a value for money property; though it is described as four-star deluxe, its accommodation and restaurant more suit a five-star classification.

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.
