This was our second trip to Hermitage Bay; you can read my first review from last year for that trip, but I don't think you'll learn anything that you don't already know by now about this incredible place. Where I can help is by reassuring you that there is nothing in the Caribbean out there like HB. We have been... More

My wife and I recently returned from our honeymoon at Hermitage Bay in a state of relaxation and contentedness. We felt the resort lived up to its reputation as one of the best all inclusive destinations on the planet. This holiday was quite unlike anything we have done before. An action and adventure holiday this is not. Nor is it... More

Choosing Hermitage Bay was one of the most important travel decisions I have made - as it was for our honeymoon and my wife did not know where we were going until getting on the plane! I’d spent a lot of time going through the reviews on here - particularly the bad ones, as I have a view that very... More

We chose hermitage as our wedding/honeymoon destination. WOW is the word we would use to describe this place, from the setting to the private bungalows to the staff to the AMAZING food cannot fault the experience any way. Special mention to Roslyn, Ryans, taj, and jamol but to be honest all staff deserve a special mention as they are a... More

I can not begin to describe how wonderful our stay was. To echo everyone else, the price is justified in the service and surroundings. I will try and break this down by the different aspects of Hermitage Bay. (It's long, so if you are looking to read more about a specific area, just jump around) Arrival Antigua: When you land...

Just as the other reviewers have said, this resort is absolutely amazing. We loved the food, it's beautiful, and it's incredibly relaxing, but I figured I would touch upon a few things I haven't read as much in other reviews. I am a vegetarian and wasn't sure how many meal choices I would have since there is a small menu.... More

Celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, we could not have picked a more perfect place. From the moment you arrive, mojito's were waiting with a genuine welcome. Service was impeccable during our week's stay led by (in no particular order): Jason- server, Vera & Annette- dining hosts, Linda & Alex- bar, Cynthia- floral & lobby housekeeping, Jamal- beach, and Ryan/Jamal- shuttle....

We had the pleasure of celebrating our Honeymoon at Hermitage Bay. The place is gorgeous and the staff are awesome. You truly feel like you make friends with each and every one of them while you are there. They are there for you whenever you need them and know just how to give you plenty of space while making sure... More

This place exceeded our (high) expectations. It is the perfect honeymoon location. The property is gorgeous (the architecture and landscaping make it stand out compared to other resorts on the island), and the staff are the real key to it's success. Every staff person there is elegant, professional, and full of personality. We felt like they were hosting us as... More

I had been planning our Hermitage Bay wedding for almost a year, and I can truly say it was everything I hoped for and much more. It is even more beautiful than the photographs, the beach, the pool, our private plunge pool in our suite - it was all beyond our expectations, but the best part of the trip was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The quiet, independent owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 25 luxury cottages so that "even at its busiest, the place seems remote and quaint." Whether visiting for the first time or returning as a friend, you'll enjoy a sort of members-only exclusivity and "sensation of belonging" as if the hotel was built for a select few. Tucked into a beautiful bay in one of the most secluded corners of Antigua, it is perfect for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.Spanning 16 acres of lush tropical gardens, our eco-chic, luxury hotel provides all the comforts of a 5 star resort without compromising the natural habitat that thrives around it. Our open-air facilities, extensive beach and detached rooms allow you to unwind in isolated luxury. Each of the 8 beach cottages features a spacious split level lounge and patio, while the large wrap-around decks and private plunge pools of the 17 hillside pool suites afford the added luxury of soaking up the Caribbean sun from the privacy of your own sun bathing deck. Whether enjoying lunch by the pool, dining in the beachfront restaurant, or having breakfast in bed, every meal feels privately catered. The menus change daily and feature freshly squeezed local juices, locally grown produce, and organic ingredients. At Hermitage Bay, all dishes are prepared to order, special requests are encouraged, and we are always happy to help with dietary requirements. Shuttle service to and from town and Shirley Heights is available for an additional charge. ... more   less
