If you are looking for the most decadent, relaxing, magnificent experience imaginable (and have the money to make it happen), Jumby Bay is your place, whether for a romantic getaway or a large family gathering. Jumbo Bay is a private island off the coast of Antigua and it is accessible only by private boat. Once on the island/resort of Jumby...

If you want to literally get away from it all and unwind, this is the place to be. From the moment you are met at the airport, you know you are in for something special. The staff at Jumby Bay is there for your every need. The beaches are breathtaking, the room is exquisite. The "this is all about you"...

This is one of the top resorts in the Caribbean! Starting with the accomodations the beachfront suite was absolutely the best we have ever experienced in the Caribbean. Extremely large, private, tall ceilings, all the amenities you could ask for: huge bathroom, large makeup counter for my wife, indoor and outdoor showers, minifridge with included snacks and drinks including house...

When you have a magical experience on your first visit to somewhere, on the second time it can seem as if the sparkle has disappeared along with familiarity. Not so with Jumby Bay - because this is an extraordinary place. It has of course physical beauty, space and tranquility. What we love is the ability to combine sport and relaxation...

We haven't been to Antigua for 30 years but decided to come for fall term with two teenage children. We have two of the 'basic' rooms (rondavels) which are very comfortable, lovely terrace area, decent shower and a well stocked mini bar with lots of snacks .... perfect for the teens! The beach is gorgeous, picture postcard stuff, water is...

Can not beat Jumby Bay for high standards in service, gastronomic delights, wonderful cocktails, stunning beach. Most relaxing holiday ever, we will be back! Spa, tennis, snorkelling trips, all available. As its an all inclusive resort you don't need to worry about bills or tips. Not even a key to your room, as the island is so safe.

Jumby Bay remains a paradise where you experience total relaxation and luxury with the very best food, drink and service. The newly redecorated Estate House along with a new Italian chef, an enthusiastic and knowledgeable sommelier and a brilliant team of staff makes it the best gastronomic experience in the Caribbean.

We are lucky enough to have traveled widely in the Caribbean and to have stayed in some of the smartest hotels but have somehow never made it to Jumby Bay.That reluctance was probably a mixture of the significant cost and a worry that an upmarket Rosewood resort might have ironed out all the quirks and character that make the Caribbean...
