From the beginning of our trip when we arrived late & had sandwiches waiting, to the last morning breakfast we enjoyed w/our new friends (the top notch staff), we couldn't have asked for a better experience! The location is beautiful, the resort is extremely clean and the staff is the nicest group of people you could ever hope for. From...

What a lovely place. Service was superb and all the staff were so friendly and considerate. The food was top quality, all done fresh, very relaxed and plenty of choice. The accommodation was excellent - we went for a luxury hillside pool suite and it was perfect. Great views, privacy, very comfortable. The beach was beautiful, had a choice of...

There is no other word for it as absolutely everything about this very special place is faultless! Why so special? Starting with the people, who in our experience can make all the difference to a holiday one way or another, all the staff were truly great. Beautifully and appropriately turned out yes, extremely helpful yes, plenty of them yes but...

After 5 years of admiring this Hotel, we eventually decided to go for it ! Admittedly, the cost had held us back, but we decided to spend 3 nights at another excellent, but cheaper resort, then transfer for 5 to The Hermitage . Fantastic idea ! The hotel is so beautiful, buildings, view, people, just so perfect in all the...

I would suggest this place to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation. Food was fantastic, service was great, and the views seemed fake. If you are even considering going somewhere else I would tell you that you are crazy. Boat rides, paddle boarding, snorkeling, swimming and everything else was just perfect. You will regret it if you do not choose Hermitage...

It's always a risk going back to a place that left such a good impression on your first visit. We chose to return to Hermitage Bay because of 1) The very private and tranquil atmosphere (but not "isolated") 2) The great food we had first time around (no standard all-inc buffets) 3) The great beach and nice accommodation Things were...

The setting is incredible. That, in and of itself, would have made our holiday a special one. However, combined with the friendly, professional and kind attention of the staff and the excellent food, we have already planned our return in 11 months. Even if you don't book a suite with a private plunge pool, the main pool was normally very...

From the moment you arrive at Hermitage Bay all of your troubles fly away. We spent a week there for our Honeymoon. You will be greeted with an ice cold scented towel, mojito, and one of the most beautiful views in the world. Each staff member is extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming. You will not meet a stranger, which makes...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2015 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 27 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 7 Beachfront and 3 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

“We loved the beachfront suite. We looked at one on the hillside and while beautiful with a plunge pool, the convenience of being steps away from the water, bar and restaurant far outweighed the view. Loved going to sleep to the sound of the waves. ”
