Hermitage Bay in Saint Mary's, Antigua and Barbuda
An unpaved road on the southeast coast of Antigua leads to Hermitage Bay, a collection of 25 villas clustered around the brilliant blue Caribbean Sea that offers a place to relax, restore and reconnect to a deeper self. Suites are airy and soothing, constructed from purpleheart, greenheart and other woods from sustainably managed forests in Guyana. Daily meditation and yoga classes, along with the natural beauty of deserted beaches, bring a sense of balance nurtured by caring staff.
Match your breath to the breeze rustling through fragrant frangipiani and oleander. Go for a swim among coral fish and dine in a grove of almond trees on a salad from the kitchen’s own organic produce garden. Gaze out at the silhouettes of Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis on the horizon while sipping a glass of prosecco.

Reviews for Hermitage Bay
This is one of the classiest Hotels we have stayed in. The ambience , location , staff and facilities are really difficult to fault. I would not hesitate to recommend it and could only find fault with some of the chairs in the Restaurant ( we asked for cushions and they appeared- problem solved).

We have visited 3 times and are looking forward to a 4th! At Hermitage Bay you can expect boutique, white glove service in paradise. From the moment you step off the plane and are greeted by your personal Hermitage Bay rep who assists you through customs to your personal driver who escorts you to the resort set in paradise. With the limited number of suites available you will never feel like youâ€™re in an overcrowded resort. From Ms. Vera and Kempton in the front of the house to Marc who is on call to chauffeur you to your Hillside suite, the staff is amazing at providing white glove service. Hermitage Bay has everything you could need, want or desire within its self. The resort offers both a relaxing escape while providing many options for those of us who are looking to be more adventurous . Some of the offerings; cooking class, garden tour, snorkeling, sailing, jet skis, paddle boarding, catamaran, day visits to the surrounding towns and beaches. You will not regret choosing Hermitage Bay!

We returned after two years to one of our favourite places in the world, would the experience be as good as the first? We are delighted to say that it was, the view is still amazing. We had a beach front suite which was amazing looking out at the sea each morning from our bed was fabulous. The accommodation immaculate as we expected. The food was of the highest standard and the chefs destroy and sugar were so happy to tweak dishes and ingredients to suit us we must say thank you to them. The special point about hermitage bay is the staff, they are exceptional everyone of them. So willing to please, so eager to engage in conversation and nothing is too much trouble, we can not single anyone out they are all outstanding. We will return for our 25th wedding anniversary in two years, we look forward to meeting our antigen cousins again.

We have visited many resorts in many countries. Hermitage Bay is without a doubt the best place we have ever visited. The staff is amazing, the rooms were wonderful and the cuisine is beyond exceptional.

My husband and I fell in love with this hotel and will definitely return. We picked Hermitage Bay on the recommendation of some friends who had been and said it was small, friendly and the food was superb - how right they were. The staff are amazing - so helpful and friendly - they can't do enough for you. That extended to all the staff whether we were in the restaurant, the bar, the beach and also the water sport guys. The food is fabulous - fresh, lots from their own organic garden, local fish, lots of choice, different homemade bread every day (the coco bread is amazing), excellent presentation and not too rich. The menu changes every day - no idea how they can come up with so many ideas. You can not go hungry here since they offer breakfast, lunch, bar snacks all afternoon, afternoon tea and then dinner. The beach is beautiful and there are no other hotels or houses to be seen - just sand, trees, sea and wooded hillsides - you feel as though you are cast away on a private island although of course round the headland is Jolly Harbour is you do want to get out and do a spot of shopping. The water sport guys are great and will take you out on a Hobi Cat and teach you to sail or just do the sailing for you. You can also go on a trip to snorkel or do a little trip round the coast to see Jolly Harbour and the coastline nearby. There is also a small reef about 3 foot into the sea where you can see some fish too - they have snorkels if you haven't got your own. We had a hillside villa with it's own plunge pool and although we weren't very high up and only had partial views we loved it because all we could see was the top of the trees, loads of flowers, glimpses of the bay but best of all no roads or cars. We felt as though we were tucked away in a magical rain forest with dragonflies and tropical birds. We were offered a villa higher up the hillside with 'wider' views but we loved this view more. Even better is the fact that this is a very small hotel with under 40 rooms (I think) - so it was lovely and quiet. We had thought we would hire a car on this holiday and do a bit of sightseeing but we didn't want to leave paradise.
