We recently spent a week at Hermitage Bay for the first week of our honeymoon. It's a stunning location and the hill side room suites are sublime. We adored the food (the chef is a star!) and loved our romantic evening meals with the live music. Water sports were great fun and the beach was gorgeous and unspoilt. It felt... More

Stayed in one of the Hillside suites and it was everything we'd hoped (and more). Food was outstanding! Service was outstanding! View was outstanding! We used the water sports, loved the nightly live music. This place is awesome. Pricey, but well worth the lifetime memory. Book it!

This resort has its own quiet bay on the western side of the Antigua. The water is clear. The beaches are soft white sand. There are a bunch of water activities available. There is a nice mix of visitors from US and Europe. The biggest differentiator for this resort though compared to comparable island resorts we've been to is the... More

It is a small resort with about 27 rooms.We stayed in a Beachfront room because we love the beach. Others stay in rooms in the hills with their own private pools. All... More

Very relaxing not much to do but overall great experience the staff knows and anticipates your every need. Was truly amazing. The chef customized every menu to our liking he came to us personally every day to review the menu and discuss what we would want for lunch and dinner wow I miss this place already.

From the moment of stepping off the plane (when you are whisked through the airport priority lane), you are made to feel special by the wonderful staff at this hotel. Everything works with effortless efficiency, but it is done with a delicate style that is never brash or in-your-face. Rooms and facilities are luxurious and well-kept, but again it is... More

We loved it so much we returned for a second year & weren't disappointed. This time we took advantage of the activities available; garden tour (tasting the native fruits) & hiking the mountain to see beautiful views of Jolly Harbor.

Just amazing. The food, service, views and amenities are the caribbean's best. The staff is like family, the food is delicious every meal and the views are unforgettable. Worth the price in every way. Can't wait to go back. With an adult-only setting, Hermitage Bay is for lovers looking for the very best.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2015 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 27 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 welcome familiarity and "sensation of belonging" from the moment you arrive. 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 7 Beachfront and 3 Garden Suites 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. Non-motorised water sports are included and a shuttle service to and from town and Shirley Heights is available for an additional charge. ... more   less
