Colonial Caribbean charm at its finest.
This boutique estate occupies a wooded headland in southwestern Antigua, where nineteen acres of lush tropical gardens give way to a palm-flanked, white sand beach. With an appealing colonial charm and peacefully secluded setting, you’ll be wonderfully relaxed in no time at all.
Twenty-four suites ring the pool, each a visual dream of mahogany floors and whitewashed walls, while two beachfront cabanas are steps from the sea. Find yourself a sandy spot, then simply soak up the sun while a gentle breeze plays through the palm fronds and the crystal-clear sea laps at the shore.
If you can bear to leave your lounger, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. Pick up a kayak or put on a snorkel mask to explore the shimmering water. Work up a sweat on the full-size tennis courts before enjoying a refreshing cocktail with a view at the hilltop bar. And if you feel like exploring, board the hotel’s complimentary water taxi for a stroll around historic Nelson’s Dockyard, which is full of fine bars and tempting restaurants.
Dining at the hotel is always a pleasure, with two restaurants offering mouth-watering dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy lunch at the Reef Restaurant right on the water’s edge or sample the five-star cuisine of the Terrace Restaurant as the sun goes down over the bay.
