HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks at Hermitage Bay. We received a warm welcome and was whisked away to our garden villa. The villa was very spacious and peaceful. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the chefs (Conrad and Desroy) could not do enough to accommodate my husband's special dietary requirements. We were so humbled and suitably...

Probably the best experience I have had at a resort. The staff was kind and generous, the rooms superb and food was perfect. The beach and pool was fantastic as well. This place is clearly for couples who want to have a calm vacation.

All of the staff were so nice, we will miss them all very much. The views are so breathtaking, the food could not be better, we hope to come again very soon, although the flight is very long. One of the best hotels we have ever visited. We had a late evening flight home and the staff was so kind,...

From the lobby to the landscaping and the room, the aesthetic is spot on. This is what you expect the West Indies to feel like. The property is quiet (no artificial noise; the wind, the birds, and the surf are the only things you'll hear) and secluded at the end of a long unpaved road. The beach is a beautiful...

Superb staff. Excellent food.Very relaxing Pity that you can't swim in the middle part of the beach due to sea urchins (apart from one narrow channel) Not the easiest place to explore from as there's a long dirt road leading to & from the hotel so you need to be happy to 'chill' and stay put which is not a...

We have just returned from a week in Hermitage Bay. Although the weather was not too kind to us, Hermitage made up for it. The people really do provide great service, always with a friendly smile and go out of their way to honour any special requests. Rooms were large and clean. Housekeeping did a great job. The food was...

Reminded me of Hawaii except in Carribean Last leg of a 2 week trip skipping around the eastern carribean, wish it had been all of it. Islanders are extraordinarily friendly and helpful. All of that was magnified at Hermitage. All needs and wants (some you didn't know you wanted),are met and your expectations exceeded. Shout out to the staff, especially...

It doesn't get any better than this tranquil idyllic Caribbean beach front hotel. Great service, excellent food and a perfect tranquil beach. Accommodation is well appointed and the hill side chalets have fantastic views of the bay and have their own plunge pool. Their is a complimentary electric buggy to take guests up and down the hillside. The hotel and...

We went in March 2017 for a wedding anniversary trip. This is the perfect place if you like outstanding service, privacy, gorgeous surroundings, delicious food and a laid back vibe. This is not the place for you if you need to be doing activities all day long, need a variety of restaurants and bars and like an extended night life....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2017 & 2016 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 30 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
