Resort's 30 suites reside in private bungalows on the beach or a lush hill
Property is not ideal for families
Hermitage Bay, a boutique, all-inclusive resort on Antigua's secluded western shore, gives guests optimal sunset panoramas from private bungalow suites. All of the resort's 30 accommodations face the ocean and are outfitted with outdoor showers, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and hardwood floors. The organic fare served at the on-site restaurant received high marks from reviewers, but it's the staff's attention to detail that guests appreciate the most. Hermitage Bay caters specially to romantic vacationers, offering wedding and honeymoon packages, as well as a spa with the tantalizing Siddhartha Art of Love treatment, which includes aromatherapy services and exotic tea tastings. When visitors are not relaxing in their room or at the spa, they can get their hearts pumping while enjoying complimentary activities, such as scuba diving, windsurfing and kayaking.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


The ... sea-facing cottages, which spread from the unspoiled beachfront to the fertile hillside, are outfitted with sustainably harvested wood, outdoor showers, freestanding bathtubs, and canopied king-size beds fitted with bone-white Italian linens. And that's just the tip of the opulent iceberg at this everything-included Caribbean resort.



Quiet, choice, and secluded, Hermitage Bay is that rare property that truly deserves the designation 'boutique.' It's tailor-made for honeymooners and an ideal retreat for those looking for a little peaceful R&R.

Condé Nast Traveler


Down a long dirt road, this secluded resort stands between a steep slope and a small bay. Its 30 individual suites – each a spacious contemporary cottage of dark wood and white linens – stand in lush foliage rich with birdlife and come with an outdoor shower and day bed; ceiling fans twirl above mosquito-netted beds.
