By far this is the best resort we have ever stayed at. The service, food, view, amenities, room and the environment in general exceeded our expectations. Look forward to returning in the near future! Thank you Hermitage Bay for a wonderful anniversary trip!

I have been many places, and this is by far the best resort i have been too. The attention from the staff and pure privacy of each unit was amazing. We never waited for anything, and they were there when ever we needed anything. Staying at a resort where there are less then 50 guests is awesome. If your looking... More

We just left Hermitage Bay this past Saturday and were so sad to leave. We stayed for a week in the beach hut. Everything was amazing- including the 5 star meals. Thank you so much for a trip we will never forget for my husband and myself. It was a trip that helped us reconnect as a couple. We were... More

We have just come to the end of a perfect 2 week stay at this resort. If you want a party atmosphere, packed beach and pool ... This is not for you. An adult only resort it is quiet and totally relaxing. We stayed in a beachside villa which meant the beach was only a few steps away - with... More

Wow. Staff- amazing. Food- amazing. Rooms- amazing. Beach- amazing. Drinks- amazing. Service- amazing. Housekeeping service- amazing. I'll never forget our honeymoon thanks to the staff at Hermitage Bay who made our trip so fun. I'll never forget the crispiest, juciest, freshest, most delicious piece of red snapper I had there.

My wife and I have been to Jade Mountain in St. Lucia twice and did not think we would be able to find anything in the Caribbean that compares. Hermitage Bay is definitely on the same level and we would love to come back for a longer stay next time. We were in Antigua for our 13-year anniversary and stayed... More

Hermitage is absolutely incredible. A relaxation paradise. Staff, food, and resort are so perfect, there is nothing I would say should be or could be improved. Truly a hidden gem. At times, my wife and I had the entire beach to ourselves. The hillside suite is something out of a movie, incredible. This is not a zip lining, adventure island... More

My boyfriend and I spent 7 amazing days at Hermitage Bay. Everything was outstanding! From the rooms to the food service and beverages... My new favorite place to get a mojito. We were lucky enough to experience two different rooms. We began our stay in the Beachfront Cabin and subsequently moved to a Hilltop Suite. I can't say enough about... More

The highlights, which are unimpeachable: absolutely beautiful setting (pristine and beautiful beach), great food and drinks with good variety (really enjoyed the all inclusive aspect), room views and decor were excellent - we stayed at both a hillside suite and a beachfront suite,...

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
