If you’ve always wanted to stay on a private island paradise just two miles off the coast of Antigua, Jumby Bay is for you. From the moment you step on the ferry you feel whisked away to an oasis. The resort will remind you of a bunch of your favorite postcards. From the main lounge to the pristine pathways, the gardens and the gorgeous rooms, there are no details that have been overlooked. A stunning oceanfront infinity pool draws the eyes towards gorgeous panoramic views of the sea, while some suites enjoy their own private pools and guests experience superior levels of service. Guests will still find themselves in a naturalist’s haven, Jumby Bay being home to beautiful rare tropical flowers, swaying palms and three picture-postcard beaches ranked among the world’s best.
Why Jumby Bay?
Set in one of the most beautiful, undisturbed places in the world, Jumby Bay, Antigua is an island of simple pleasures. Reachable only by boat, and with no cars in sight, this private isle of white-powdered beaches and winding bicycle paths is a one-of-a-kind hideaway known, quite simply, as the finest resort in the Caribbean. The island’s iconic half-mile stretch of beach is lined with thatched bohios under which guests can lounge in the shade on cushioned chaises. Alternatively, a sprinkling of hammocks, strung between the palms, beckons. Or a sun chair that invites you to dip your feet into the softly lapping sea. Or the Beach Bar, a traditional open bungalow that sits midway on the shore.
Each room, suite and villa features air-conditioning, a mini-bar, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, bathroom amenities, a personal safe, flat-screen television, Satellite/Cable, DVD/CD player, telephone, iPod docking station, wi-fi internet access, Italian linens, Caloi Bicycles, iron with ironing board and twice daily maid service.
The suites offer a huge open concept, with your own gate and back patio, a living area with a small kitchenette, a large bedroom area, large bathroom/dressing room area, plus an outdoor shower and bath area. Each room is decorated beautifully with luxury comfort throughout.
