A tranquil island paradise just off the north east coast of Antigua, considered by many to be one of the Caribbean's finest islands, Jumby Bay boasts some of the best accommodation to be found in the region. Further paramount to its success, the luxury hotel received the AAA Five-Diamond Award and Forbes Travel Guide 5-Star Rating Award for 2017.
Just steps from the palm-fringed sandy beach lie the Beachside Courtyard Suites, characterised by high, vaulted ceilings, light, fresh colours, dark wood furnishings and seductive bathrooms featuring ebony, granite and stone vessels – guests having the option to bathe under sun or stars in private bath tubs and showers set amidst a courtyard garden. Jumby Bay's Pool and Estate Suites feature their own private pool and sun terrace with a selection of larger estate homes available for families seeking extra privacy.
Dining options include toes-in-the-sand casual dining at The Verandah, light lunches and snacks at the Pool Grille and fine dining at the Estate House, where Mediterranean-inspired cuisine is served in a setting of colonial-style glamour. This luxury 5 star resort has recently announced its newest culinary experience – The Beach Shack – offering authentic West Indies fare, it is a must-visit for cultivated food mavens.
Enjoy the views from the oceanfront infinity-edge pool, which is one of two pools at the property. Further activities encompass bike rides around the island, croquet, tennis, snorkelling, kayaking and scuba diving.

Jumby Bay Island reopened in October 2017 following its annual six-week closure. Now equipped with a plethora of facilities and activities, there’s something for every family member to enjoy. Try your hand at sailing with the Jumby Bay Sailing Academy for beginners and experienced sailors. Or delve into something completely new and learn how to play the steel pans in a musical masterclass. There’s also a new organic farm and kitchen garden to experience, for delicious cuisine.
For the ultimate privacy, worthy of special mention is Jumby Bay's Lazy Lizard beachfront estate – an exclusive retreat comprising eight deluxe pavilions, carrying a Balinese theme throughout and set around a huge freeform swimming pool with a floating dining pavilion. Lazy Lizard is both sleek and stylish.
With its family-friendly Verandah Pool, velvet-soft beaches, three tennis courts and acclaimed Kids Club, Jumby Bay Resort is the ideal choice for families with both older and younger children. There are no cars (just bikes and golf buggies) and no one can access the island other than by private boat, so parents can rest assured that their children are safe. From inquisitive minds to those seeking more active pursuits, younger guests will love the Kids Club at Jumby Bay; activities include watersports, Wildlife and Ocean Adventures and Little Chefs.
