There is no other word for it as absolutely everything about this very special place is faultless! Why so special? Starting with the people, who in our experience can make all the difference to a holiday one way or another, all the staff were truly great. Beautifully and appropriately turned out yes, extremely helpful yes, plenty of them yes but... More

After 5 years of admiring this Hotel, we eventually decided to go for it ! Admittedly, the cost had held us back, but we decided to spend 3 nights at another excellent, but cheaper resort, then transfer for 5 to The Hermitage . Fantastic idea ! The hotel is so beautiful, buildings, view, people, just so perfect in all the... More

I would suggest this place to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation. Food was fantastic, service was great, and the views seemed fake. If you are even considering going somewhere else I would tell you that you are crazy. Boat rides, paddle boarding, snorkeling, swimming and everything else was just perfect. You will regret it if you do not choose Hermitage... More

It's always a risk going back to a place that left such a good impression on your first visit. We chose to return to Hermitage Bay because of 1) The very private and tranquil atmosphere (but not "isolated") 2) The great food we had first time around (no standard all-inc buffets) 3) The great beach and nice accommodation Things were...

The setting is incredible. That, in and of itself, would have made our holiday a special one. However, combined with the friendly, professional and kind attention of the staff and the excellent food, we have already planned our return in 11 months. Even if you don't book a suite with a private plunge pool, the main pool was normally very... More

From the moment you arrive at Hermitage Bay all of your troubles fly away. We spent a week there for our Honeymoon. You will be greeted with an ice cold scented towel, mojito, and one of the most beautiful views in the world. Each staff member is extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming. You will not meet a stranger, which makes... More

We stayed for five days in January, 2014, and had a terrific time. The hotel is beautiful and the staff can't be beat. They're always friendly and willing to please. The room was very nice, but the real advantage is the plunge pool and the extensive outside deck with a killer view. The reason the hotel exceeded expectations, though, was... More

We decided on Hermitage Bay for our Honeymoon and couldn't have been more pleased! The views were just remarkable as we stayed in a hillside villa. The room was perfect, good size with a comfy bed. The bathroom had a great view and I really enjoyed the private outside shower. If you want to be active there are a multitude... More

This is a beautiful, relaxing and superbly run resort. Everything you read in the previous reviews is true and we had the most wonderful and relaxing holiday thanks to all the incredibly hard working and friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Few of the reviews mention the music provided each night. The quality of the musicians was exceptional and... More

This was our third visit to this hotel as we really enjoy everything about it. Once again we took a beach front cottage and requested no upgrade to a villa up the hill with pool and view as we like being by the beach. The staff remembered us and were extremely welcoming and friendly. A lot of time, money and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The intimate, privately-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. ... more   less
