This was our first visit to the Caribbean. We were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the staff, the stunning location set in beautiful gardens by the beach and also imaginative menus. The service was beyond our expectations and nothing was too much trouble. The small touches such as fresh fruit brought to us on the beach, cooling almond scented towels and canapes with cocktails - who could ask for more!

Ahhh this beach! Lovely soft sand, private, gorgeous. It is shared with the exclusive Hermitage Resort, Antigua. What I love about this beach is that it is not well known so you are guaranteed privacy, no one selling or setting up beach chairs & most of all, not a drop-off destination for cruise people. A bay surrounded by mountains and gorgeous turquoise waters. Only negative is the occasional plane overhead because it seems to be on the flight path. This would not deter me from spending an afternoon at this beach. A short dirt road to get to the beach. Recommendations from locals never disappoint! Quite the find.

Room Tip: Small bumpy dirt road to get down to beach, but easily manageable. We had a car.

We had a most wonderful stay at Hermitage Bay for our honeymoon. We were looking for a place to relax, to enjoy some quiet and to well taken care of and we got just that. The service was was world class, the food was delicious and made with love, and all of our dietary needs were accommodated with kindness. The beach was quiet and beautiful, with a mostly private feel. The facilities including our room were cozy, clean and well kept. The bed was very comfortable and there were lots of little extras such as nightly turn down service, big bath tub for two and outdoor shower, breakfast on our patio and an in-room spa treatment that helped take the relaxation to the next level. We genuinely loved the staff and everyone there made our experience that much more special. We couldn't have asked for a better place and vibe for our honeymoon and a much needed vacation. We will definitely be returning to HB and look forward to our next visit!

Superb food with new menu each day. Friendly staff and good service. Small so easy enough to get to meet other guests if desired. Good music in the evening and good variety. Beach area not overly long but plenty of good beds. Snorkelling reef area 5m from shore with huge assortment of fish. Paddle boarding and Hobie Cat filled the day quickly. Definitely worth a week.

We loved our stay at Hermitage. The welcoming and genuine staff were such a delight. They offered us attentive care, as many resorts do, but the difference was their sincere and genuine interactions with their guests. They learnt our names very quickly and always greeted us with a big smile and often a funny little story. It was truly a delight to get to know them. The food was incredible. Amazing selections, flavours and presentation. It was very much like dinning at a Michelin Star restaurant every meal. It was by far the best dinning we have ever had at a resort because each meal (breakfast, lunch, snack & dinner) was constantly fantastic. Their chef, Desroy Spence, was kind and friendly and is a true master of his craft. Thank you Hermitage Bay for a memorable stay. We will be back!

Hermitage Bay resort is a premier destination if you are traveling to Antigua. Everything about it breathes luxury and privacy. The food, the features, the experiences are all infused with the spirit of a bountiful Caribbean life. The beauty of the buildings, well maintained natural landscaping, the sumptuous foods, and nightly live music makes it seem like you are in paradise. The island has lots to offer for those that want to experience it, but it is equally glorious to stay put at Hermitage Bay and revel in the surroundings and amenities. Jon & Laura S.

We stayed in one of the hillside villas, which had the most amazing views. It was spacious, comfortable and we both loved the outside shower (and the pool). The walk up and down the hill was good exercise but we cheated at bedtime and used the buggy to take us back up. The staff were truly wonderful and couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable. We can recommend doing the on site nature walk, cooking demo and boat trip, they were all fabulous, as was the massage at the spa. We looked forward to meal times as the food was gorgeous, there was always a good choice. Sitting, eating dinner and listening to the entertainment every night was a real treat. I would love to go back, it was one of the most relaxing holidays I have ever had.

Such an amazing staff. The suites are stunning and can’t imagine one more favorable than the next. It was peaceful and relaxing. The food was delicious and the cocktails plentiful. Nice wines and great guest room amenities. There wasn’t a thing we could have asked for that wasn’t already there. Hope to return one day soon.

The good: beautiful, spacious rooms. Great views. Breakfast plan was awesome. Butler service was great. The mediocre: the dinner options and prices. Having to take a shuttle anytime you leave the room. Beach service.
