The room we had, hillside pool, was spectacular and the staff/food was top notch. We intend on returning and would recommend this resort to anyone interested in a...

My husband and I fell in love with this hotel and will definitely return. We picked Hermitage Bay on the recommendation of some friends who had been and said it was small, friendly and the food was superb - how right they were. The staff are amazing - so helpful and friendly - they can't do enough for you. That...

Hermitage Bay is a place that I would recommend over any place I have ever visited. Our honeymoon truly feels like a dream. It has a 5 star rating for a reason - really, for many reasons. First, the staff. WOW! My husband and I were blown away by how attentive and personal they were with us. Geron made our...

This review is 12 months late ! But you know when you go away you think of past pleasures ! For my wife and I this was probably the finest small hotel we have stayed at. The rooms hillside, beachside or garden view are all good. When on holiday we like long slow meals , what is the rush? At...

This is one of the classiest Hotels we have stayed in. The ambience , location , staff and facilities are really difficult to fault. I would not hesitate to recommend it and could only find fault with some of the chairs in the Restaurant ( we asked for cushions and they appeared- problem solved).

In this day and age of TripAdvisor, Yelp, Facebook, etc., and the instant access to reviews, pictures, and commentary, it is very rare that you are surprised by somewhere that you visit. You read the reviews of Hermitage Bay and you think "Can the food really be that good? Can the people working there really be that great? Can the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2017 & 2015 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 30 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 9 Beachfront and 4 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
