The perfect mixture of living with the natural environment and living in luxury. Tucked into a beautiful, secluded bay in one of the most secluded corners of southwest Antigua, the intimate and quaint Hermitage Bay invites guests to escape the hustle and bustle of life. Whether visiting for the first time or returning as a friend, guests enjoy a sort of members-only exclusivity as if the hotel was built for a select few.Spanning 16 acres of lush tropical gardens, the eco-chic, luxury hotel provides all the comforts of a five star resort without compromising the natural habitat that thrives around it. The open-air facilities, extensive beach and detached rooms allow you to unwind in isolated luxury. Each of the 7 beachfront suites features a spacious split level lounge and patio, while the large wrap-around decks and private plunge pools are features of the 17 hillside pool suites.Winner of the 2015 Conde Nast Traveler Gold List, as well as the Trip Advisor's Travelers' Choice Award for Best All Inclusives in the Caribbean (2012); Best Small Hotels (2013), Best Luxury Hotels (2013, 2014), and Best Hotels for Romance (2014), the hotel boasts of accommodating each guests every request.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 for lunch and dinner and feature freshly squeezed local juices, locally grown produce, and organic ingredients. At Hermitage Bay, all meals are a la carte and are prepared to order, special requests are encouraged, and the kitchen is always ready to deal with special dietary requests.Though it is often said that the entire Hermitage Bay experience feels like a pampered massage, guest may also enjoy actual spa treatments influenced by the ancient eastern concept of Chakra at our Garden Spa. Guests can also find stress relief in the onsite fitness center and non-motorized water sports or traveling to one of the two golf courses or nearby floodlit tennis courts or glass-backed squash courts.Hermitage Bay is about 40 minutes from the airport, 30 minutes from the capital of St. John's and just 10 minutes away from the Jolly Harbour marina complex that offers shops, restaurants, golf and tennis. While the hotel is close enough to accommodate day trips into town or excursions around the island, there is private dirt road that separates Hermitage Bay from the rest of the world.The serene bay laid the foundation for our guiding principles, including heartfelt concern for the guests, staff and environment, healthy living, and restoration of mind, body and soul. If guests are seeking an authentic tropical spa escape, Hermitage Bay is the definition of easy, island living.
