Antigua, Jumby Bay

Jumby, a secluded private island in Antigua marks one of my favourite hotels in the Caribbean. Its luxurious, relaxed, and feels like a secluded private island in the middle of the Indian Ocean without ever leaving the Caribbean. This place is all about lazing around in a hammock reading all day.

Jumby has that friendly, laid back and yet perfect service that reminds you of being at our own private vacation home. The staff learn your names, your preferences and magically appear with a glass of rose just as you might think you needed one. The resort itself is a series of cottages and villas laid out across the island and accessible via bikes and golf carts. Its colonial island elegance true to Antigua’s regal style. The resort has a restful and quiet vibe making it perfect for a Honeymoon, Babymoon or a necessary reset. If you’re looking for something a little livelier head to St. Barts as Jumby is all about slower days, delicious food and plenty of sleep. When I visited, I stayed in the bedroom cottage with a pool and it was the perfect spacious and private oasis, complete with a bubble bath in your garden. I mean is there anything more divine than having a bubble bath outdoors under the stars? I think not!
