Head to Jumby Bay for a luxury Caribbean retreat

Jumby Bay Island is a 300-acre private enclave just two miles north of Antigua in the West Indies. A haven for naturalists, the island plays host to a variety of wildlife including sheep, the White Egret and the Blue Pelican. Pasture Beach, on the island's windward side, is a protected nesting site of the endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtle. Tropical foliage and pristine white beaches characterize this secluded all-inclusive Caribbean private island hideaway accessible only by boat from Antigua.

Jumby Bay offers an upscale resort experience—at a luxury resort price. You can bask on Long Island, a small islet two miles off the northeast coast of Antigua, and soak up the rays on its powdery sand. Despite its cost, recent guests thought their money was well-spent: With pristine suites, spectacular vistas, and top-notch service, guests had very few complaints. As for digs, Jumby Bay's Rondavel rooms reside in octagonal cottages, and each features a four-poster bed, a wrap-around terrace, and an outdoor shower. If you can shell out a private villa (read: estate), you'll get your own pool and beach access. The resort itself offers land and water sports, two pools, and the Sense spa. When hunger sets in, you'll have your pick of three restaurants, which serve everything from hamburgers to grilled lobster tail.


The pools of Jumby Bay are a sparkling oasis of cool, refreshing enjoyment. Guests of Jumby Bay have access to pools for both swimming and lounging. Pool attendants see to every need, from providing sunblock and the latest novels to read to refreshing Jumby Bay amenities such as chilled towels, iced fruit and delicious homemade sorbet. For soothing sounds, iPods are offered poolside, pre-loaded with music.

The Verandah Pool is the perfect place for guests to dive into a carefree day of relaxation or recreation. This 82-foot (25-metre) pool has four lap lanes and is surrounded by lush gardens and a deck with comfortable chaise lounges. Friendly poolside food and drink service, aqua fitness classes and poolside reflexology are offered. Available in 15- or 30-minute sessions, this spa-like indulgence is the perfect way to get into a relaxed mindset for enjoying a day by the pool.


Oceanfront Infinity Pool, located at the end of Jumby Bay Beach, the resort's newest pool exudes tranquility and sophisticated outdoor relaxation. With its infinity edge, this lagoon-shaped pool gives the illusion of blending with the ocean. The oceanfront environment is ideal for uninterrupted sunbathing, enjoying a delicious lunch at The Pool Grille or a quick catnap in the Caribbean sun.


With 40 beautifully refurbished rooms and suites and luxury vacation villas rentals spread across nearly a third of this private Caribbean island off Antigua, guests feel deliciously ensconced in their own secluded hideaway. Each suite is an oasis of luxurious idleness embodying the island's stylish good taste. In addition, Jumby Bay also offers the luxury and privacy afforded by a collection of peerless Villas and Estate Homes for rent.
