Hermitage Bay Hotel, Antigua

Sometimes the less you do, the more you appreciate. Quietness, for example, allows you to enjoy natural sounds. Simple, fresh produce reintroduces you to taste.

At Hermitage Bay you’ll be in tune with the undeniable beauty of turquoise sea, deep green gardens and white sand flowing together in perfect harmony. The ecologically-aware owners of this private paradise believe that keeping man-made noise to a minimum gives you the opportunity to experience the whispering forest, the lapping of wavelets on sand, the song of exotic birds.

They also believe in helping you escape the bustle of normal life. Stretch out and unwind in secluded luxury – whether you’re lounging on the semi-deserted beach or experiencing the taste sensation that is dining, in an al fresco restaurant, on food that uses fresh, organic and local ingredients. Many of them picked that day Hermitage’s own organic garden.
