PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Hermitage Bay is well named; a dirt-track tumble to a hidden Antigua bay takes you to this peaceful Caribbean boutique resort, where there’s no danger of urban distraction – there’s nothing for miles around. A scattering of wooden cottages blends seamlessly with the lush green gardens of the hillside, offering sweet seclusion, understated luxury and a deserted white-sand beach.

FACILITIES

Spa and gym, DVD library, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: flatscreen TV, DVD player, sound system with iPod dock, minibar, outdoor rain shower, Aromatherapy Associates toiletries.

PACKING TIPS

Insect repellent is a must, given the critters that come out at night; any classics you’ve never got around to reading – this is the perfect place to do it.

CHILDREN

The hotel welcomes children aged 14 to 16 for $400 a night, if sharing with two adults in either a Seaview Garden Suite or Beachfront Suite.

SPA

The Garden Spa offers Dorissima treatments that use colour rituals based on the body’s Chakra systems – full spiritual enlightenment guaranteed. Ensure your body's as high functioning as your spirit with a spin on the TechnoGym equipment in the fitness centre.

POOL

The hotel’s main freshwater pool is an invitingly curved, infinity-edged, broad-bean-shaped delight, overlooking the sea and set beside the lounge bar. Waiters are always on hand to bring refreshment your way.

ALSO

Guided tours of the hotel's organic kitchen garden are free, and fascinating for both green-fingered types and unintentional plant murderers.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Children 14-16 years of age are accepted year round. Children may only stay in a Garden or Beachfront Suite with their parents at an additional cost of $400 ++ per child per night. The max occupancy per suite is two adults and one child. One Adult plus one child sharing will be charged as two adults. If the third adult is aged between 17 - 21 please call our Travel Team for more information on rates and availability.

Rooms 

The Hillside Pool Suites may be a short trek up the hill, but it's worth the climb as the higher you go, the more stunning the bay view – and there’s always a golf buggy to ferry you around if you’re not feeling up to the ascent. These Asian-inspired wooden cottages have private infinity plunge pools beside white-curtained day-bed terraces – ideal for lounging in front of the inimitable Caribbean sunset. Down by the seafront, the Beachfront Suites may lack pools, but the fact the sea is but a hop, skip and dive away more than makes up for it.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

With tables spreading from the decking onto the beach, Hermitage Bay’s three-tier restaurant shares the Balinese/Asian feel of the suites, but serves a fusion of Caribbean and Modern European flavours, created, where possible, from local ingredients.

Liquid Bliss 

The sheltered poolside bar is a sleek and spacious lounge filled with low coffee tables, white fabrics and dark rattan armchairs. The old-style wide wooden bar counter is ideal for supping a cold beer or tropical cocktail. Most drinks are included in your room rate, whether you're pining for a fruity cocktail or a glass of house wine; from 21 December–31 March champagne flows freely, and from 1 April–20 December prosecco takes its place.

Experience the Extraordinary 

An array of watersports are free to try on site; from the well-loved (snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing), to the more exotic (hobie cat and sunfish sailing). Tuition is included. For something a bit more chakra-aligning, attend one of the free yoga, pilates or meditation sessions, held on alternate days. There's live entertainment each night (five nights a week in low season): steel bands, guitarists, cover bands and other musical treats. Informal cooking courses and demonstrations – how to make local dishes such as pepperpot stew or cockle soup – with the hotel's highly accomplished chef are held around the pool on Wednesday afternoons, followed by an informative tour of the gardens.

Transportation 

Planes 

V C Bird International Airport in the north east of the island is the main entry point. Fly there from London Gatwick with British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. Island-hoppers should note that the airport is also served by a number of air shuttles originating in other Caribbean destinations. A taxi from the airport to the hotel takes 35 minutes and should cost around US$21. If you’re staying for three nights or more, the hotel will arrange free transfers.

Automobiles 

Having a set of wheels can be useful for exploring Antigua and you’ll find an Avis (www.avis.com) rental desk at the airport. The drive to St John’s, the capital, will take around 30 minutes, following Valley Road to the town of Jennings.

Other 

If you’re arriving on the island via the seas, you’ll find private yacht moorings at St James’ Club and English Harbour in the south of the island or at Crabbs Marina in the north.
