Overview



The intimate, privately-owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 25 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 sort of members-only exclusivity and "sensation of belonging" as if the hotel was built for a select few. 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 detatched rooms allow you to unwind in isolated luxury. Each of the 8 beachfront cottages 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 the resort, entrées are prepared to order, special requests are encouraged, and the kitchen is always open.

Accommodation at Hermitage Bay consists of 25 individual cottages that begin on the edge of the beach and spread discreetly up the hillside as if "carved out of nature." In keeping with the resort philosophy, each has been constructed with purpleheart, greenheart, and other woods harvested from sustainably managed forests in Guyana. All rooms feature open floor plans, outdoor showers, and screened louvres in place of glass doors and windows – prompting guests to describe them as luxurious cabins or "high-end tree-houses"

Whilst each suite faces the sea, the views vary from tranquil tropical gardens and a white sand beach to spectacular panoramas of the bay, natural mangroves and a distant harbour. The décor is simple and unassuming; pristine white Italian linens, plush ivory cushions and light, textured walls soften the rich hues of the floorboards, large, comfortable furniture and vaulted ceilings.

Deluxe amenities complement the rooms' naturally beautiful, rustic charms. Elegant, mesh canopies adorn king size beds draped in luxurious Italien linens by Rivolta Carmignani. There are Green and Blacks chocolates in the mini-bars and Aromatherapy Associates bath soaps on the oversized, freestanding bathtubs. For your convenience and comfort, rooms are also equipped with an iPod docking station, 26" flat screen TV, DVD player, Wi-Fi and air-conditioning.

One of Hermitage Bay's most distinguishing qualities is our commitment to serve delicious meals made from the freshest, highest quality ingredients. As avid travellers accustomed to world-class cuisine, we consider dining to be an integral part of the holiday experience and hold the restaurant ambiance, service and cuisine to the highest of international standards. Under the direction of our seasoned yet ever-curious executive chef, Hermitage Bay offers a varied menu of Caribbean favourites, American classics, and modern European fare with an emphasis on fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

The staff at Hermitage Bay has but one aim and that is to accommodate your every request. Whilst enjoying any one of our restaurant, beach, or spa amenities you'll find a member of staff is always on hand, delivering a cold cocktail, providing fresh towels or collecting your kayak after a paddle around the bay.

Though we cater to just a handful of guests, our public areas are widespread and spacious - designed with relaxation, privacy and comfort in mind. From our beachfront restaurant serving an all-inclusive menu that is second to none, to our long, secluded beach and Garden Spa, Hermitage Bay offers the perfect setting for a Zen-like experience.

As an all-inclusive luxury property, we maintain that your stay with us should be effortless and carefree. Our open, island-inspired hotel facilities, thoughtful luxury amenities and special touches have been prepared in anticipation of providing a "perfectly relaxing, indulgent and romantic" holiday experience. The following lists the dining services and a sample of amenities included in the daily rate:
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that change on a daily basis
  • Afternoon snack
  • Canapés at cocktail hour
  • Beverages, including premium branded drinks and a selection of house wines
  • French Champagne (winter) and Prosecco (summer)
  • Airport transfers via luxury 4x4
  • Morning yoga, meditation and Pilates classes (alternating days)
  • Non-motorized water sports, including snorkelling, windsurfing, Hobie cats and kayaks, including tuition
  • Wi-Fi throughout the property, as well as a public laptop near reception


Google Reviews



About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   If you are looking for a fantastic honeymoon spot in Antigua, look no further! The Hermitage Bay experience is something my wife and I will be talking about for a long time. All staff members went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met and our room was hands down the coolest place either of us have ever stayed at. We loved the ability to fold back all the doors and windows in order to fully appreciate the beautiful view of the bay and surrounding area - especially during the sunsets. This is the perfect place to unwind after planning a wedding.

Review:   Very disappointed with our stay at this resort. Every year, my wife and I leave the children home and travel to a Caribbean island. This year was the worst experience since we started this tradition 6 years ago. The island itself is beautiful and the locals outside this resort are friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, the resort’s staff is not the same. Hermitage Bay’s staff does not work together and communicate to each other. There seems to be tension between the employees and it affects the service and overall experience. Will try Antigua again, but not Hermitage Bay.
