Hermitage Bay
Jennings' New Extension
St. Mary's, Antigua

Distance from hotel to town, 25 minutes. Distance from hotel to V.C. Bird International Airport (ANU), 35 minutes.  

Nestled into a secluded cove on Antigua, Hermitage Bay is the ideal place to escape the hustle of city life or celebrate a special occasion. Spanning 16 acres of tropical gardens, this eco-chic boutique hotel provides all the comforts of a 5 star resort without compromising the natural habitat that surrounds it. The 1,250 feet beach is a mix of white sand and seashells washed ashore from the coral reef that thrives immediately in front of the property. The calm, clear blue waters are ideal for swimming and the reef provides convenient snorkeling.  

Each of the 27 suites offers an ocean view; Garden Suites feature a partial ocean view, while the Hillside Pool Suites feature an expansive unobstructed view together with the added luxury of a private plunge pool. As a gourmet all-inclusive, there are no buffets, menus change daily, and everything is made to order using only high quality ingredients, most of which are locally sourced. Premium spirits are also included, and special dietary menus can be prepared on request.

Food and Beverage Outlets (back to top)

The Lounge, is the area right next to the beach and pool and is a great place to unwind with a cocktail, a cup of tea or a good book. Have lunch there if you prefer a slightly less formal feel. In the evening, it is candlelit and atmospheric; the place to gather for drinks, canapes and coffees (and even dancing) before or after dinner.  

Hermitage Bay Restaurant, the restaurant transforms into a more formal dining area with subtle lighting, candles and drapery. There is live music every night and the beat of steel drums, calypso or jazz accompanies the natural orchestra of the waves rolling onto the beach.  

• They always serve delicious meals made with the best, freshest and highest quality ingredients. Watch Kempton Mccalmont, the food and beverages supervisor at Hermitage Bay (and the Green Team leader), introduce you to some of the fresh food experiences that they offer.
