Hermitage Bay Antigua sits tucked away on a hilltop overlooking a pretty bay on the island's west coast. Little more than 35 minutes separates this all inclusive resort from the airport. The capital city of St John's is only 30 minutes away by car, offering enough distance from the lively capital for a reclusive feel yet close enough to enjoy the city. With the Jolly Harbour complex only 10 minutes away, this area boasts one of the best areas for shopping, dining, tennis, and golf. Beautiful Five Islands Harbour is north of Hermitage Bay Resort. The group of four moon-shaped beaches flanked by brightly colored gardens presents visitors with a place to enjoy the sun and sand, and best of all, the lack of crowds.
The all inclusive Hermitage Bay is a small yet elegantly designed and appointed resort built on ten graciously landscaped acres. It features a private, 1,200-foot white-sand beach equipped with lounge chairs and umbrellas. The land on which Hermitage Bay Antigua is built was privately owned for more than a century, and has one of the most envious island locations because of the remoteness. The entire design emits a sophisticated atmosphere brushed with plenty of casual elements to create a relaxed and cultivated feel. The design perfectly complements the outdoor bounty of lush mountains, blue skies, and open water. The location opens up doors for all kinds of activities including sailing, snorkeling, and cruises.
Accommodations include 25 private cottages tucked clandestinely into the hillside and along the bay. The many gardens dispersed in the outdoor set-up exhibit a fragrant backdrop of tropical scents. The cottages include eight beachfront and seventeen hilltop suites. Beachfront accommodations at the all inclusive Hermitage Bay are 900 square feet and include large outdoor verandahs, sitting rooms, and bedrooms. Hilltop cottages offer 1,000 square feet of space and feature outdoor plunge pools with patios, wrap-around terraces, and the best bay views. Each of the Hermitage Bay Antigua cottages have air conditioning, outdoor showers, and mini-fridges. They also include wide-screen TVs with DVD players and iPod-ready docking stations. Black wicker furniture, rich, dark woods, and wood walls.
The onsite facilities are another reason to take a closer look at Hermitage Bay resort vacations. Taking advantage of the excellent location, the all inclusive Hermitage Bay incorporated an award-winning restaurant into the resort. Dine by the ocean and enjoy world-class meals, have lunch by the pool, or munch on island favorites on the beach. Guests can also dine privately on the beach, a perfect option for weddings and honeymoons. The onsite spa might be smaller than other island resorts, yet it offers abundant choice in spa treatments offer both at the spa or in private quarters.
Hilltop cottages require a good ten-minute walk to and from the main lobby and the beach, which is ideal for some yet not for others. The small pool at Hermitage Bay Resort might be another concern for pool-lovers, but the sprawling beach more than makes up for it. Essentially this resort was created with couples in mind and offers plenty of privacy for those seeking a truly isolated getaway. Things to do at the all inclusive Hermitage bay include a wealth of non-motorized watersports. Staff offer sailing and windsurfing instruction for guests. Relaxation is the highlight with many distinct spaces for guests to relax with a book, socialize over a few drinks, or simply soak in the romantic ambience.
