Overview

Past guests loved the resort's quiet setting
Property's beaches are small
A sister of the St. James's Club and Galley Bay Resort & Spa, The Verandah Resort & Spa hugs Antigua's eastern coast. Each suite and two-bedroom villa at this all-inclusive property boasts its own private veranda from which guests can gaze out at the ocean or the lush grounds. Romantic vacationers can choose from wedding, honeymoon or anniversary packages, while active travelers can take advantage of the resort's tennis courts and fitness center. Though the two white sand beaches are small, The Verandah touts Antigua's largest free-form swimming pool, surrounded by meticulously manicured gardens. Parents can drop off their little ones at the Kids Club and sign up for a massage at Tranquility Body & Soul Spa. For all its relaxing benefits, previous guests noted the remoteness of this resort, saying it's great for couples and families who want peace and quiet. Many also praised the cuisine served at the property's five dining venues. However, some recent visitors wished the nightly poolside entertainment wasn't as noisy, while others desired more updated accommodations.

Though local activists disagree, this ecocentric resort emphasizes low-impact environmental responsibility, without sacrificing upscale contemporary conveniences. The mint-and-apricot New England–meets-creole cottages built on stilt-like pylons incorporate solar energy.
