A small boutique resort which is a jewel in the Caribbean. We returned home after 6 restful days at Hermitage Bay with warm memories, fully relaxed, and well fed. The staff are notably gracious and friendly, service oriented will still unobtrusive. We stayed in a mountain side bungalow with a beautiful view and pool which was quiet and allowed for privacy. The variety of local dishes, and the quality of the food and presentation was astonishing. The staff was more than willing to make a few alternations to the meals and to supplement the minibar with a few choice selections to make our stay even more comfortable. We are most grateful to the staff for making our stay memorable, and relaxing from yoga in the morning, to snorkeling and paddle boarding, to just reading under am umbrella on the beach with a daiquiri.

This is a luxury couples only resort set on a beautiful bay. Sun beds are wide apart and the beach is very peaceful. The individual lodges are set in the trees and are spacious and well equipped. Cocktails on the restaurant deck at sunset with freshly prepared canapés are a daily highlight before dinner in the restaurant. There are no buffet meals and each meal offers carefully thought out menus of a very high standard. As this is a fully inclusive resort it gives a chance to try as many wines and cocktails as you like! What sets Hermitage Bay apart is the staff who without fail make you feel like a special guest and really look after you during your stay. No negatives other than wanting to stay longer!

Hermitage Bay is a one of a kind place. The staff was truly incredible, and they made sure that every part of the experience was perfect. The food was fantastic, with every meal being well thought out. Some of the best food I’ve ever had. Can’t recommend Hermitage enough. We will be going back!

Everything was simply amazing. Truly could not have been better. The food and drinks were great but the service and staff took everything to the next level. You will not find a better staff at any all inclusive resort.

Exactly as advertised. Feels quaint but still 5 star, very personal service from staff that legitimately seemed to care about your experience and the best all inclusive food we’ve ever had. Rotating menu was a treat and surprise at every meal. Amazing beach views feeling like you are on a private bay with calm water. Loved the view from room 30 but was a haul if you walk it up in the heat of the day or after dinner. Would go back again for sure.

With the help of our travel advisor, Kim Flores/Nashville Luxury Travel, we choose HB for our wedding and honeymoon. Shanna C Edwards, the wedding coordinator, was truly a blessing! Everything (with such detail) was taken care of for us, all we had to do was say “I do!” The candlelight dinner on the beach was very romantic and Ryan was amazing - and like everyone there, he took excellent care of us! All of the staff were superb and always had a smile! Our villa and plunge pool were beautiful and spacious. We loved the outdoor shower! Arrival at the airport and transportation to the resort was a breeze. We can’t give enough praise for HB and the attention the staff gives to everyone. The music, food, bar, couples message, boutique, - perfect. We snorkeled, took a boat tour, sailed on a catamaran, and kayaked. The resort was quiet and peaceful. Thank you Hermitage Bay staff for making our wedding and honeymoon so memorable! We definitely will return!

The pictures on line don’t even begin to do it justice. Everything was amazing- the view, the food, the staff, the service. I especially like how small and intimate it is. I will be back every year. Our new favorite vacation spot!!

We feel so lucky we stayed at HB for our honeymoon. This place is a gem, and we'll always remember the memories made here. The view and plunge pool from our hillside suite were incredible. The staff was always friendly and professional. Morning yoga with Charlotte was a great way to start the day. Live music at night was always excellent. The food was so delicious that we cleaned our plates every time. So much so that the front desk asked me if I was expecting a boy or girl on our last morning there. A bit offensive, but I'll let it slide because it's a testament to the great food there ;). However, please don't ever ask a guest that again. If you're looking to unplug, fully relax and be taken care of - HB is for you.

What an amazing resort. Hermitage Bay is like no other resort that we have been to. The details are there in every area of the resort from the front desk, bell hops, restaurant, bar, housekeeping, spa and water sports. The people truly make the difference from a very good resort to a fantastic one. Kudos to Shawna, Rosalia, Solounge, Toni-ann, Marc, Khawisi, Martin, Simone, Stoney, Jullian, Annette, Sugar , Des, Devin and the two Masseuses. We truly felt like family and hated to leave. My wife and I will share the stories of this hidden treasure forever. Thank you everyone. Sandy and Daniel
