Cottage, Hermitage Bay, AntiguaWhy this week?
When we find a time or a reason not to visit Antigua, we’ll be sure to update the blog accordingly. But that day hasn’t come yet. And December sees the Caribbean in its finest glad rags. Birmingham may be struggling to sustain a cool 7°c, but Barbuda’s pushing a balmy 27°c. Flee the cold for the promise of sweet, sun-kissed, soul-soothing seclusion, drifting off under cerulean skies. When the shade beckons, you back indoors, duck into your cottage to enjoy the majestic views from the bath or your king-size bed. If all that doesn’t have you frantically rooting out your sandals and sarongs, we’ll throw in four nights for the price of three.

lobby-hermitage-bay-antiguaMr & Mrs Smith say:
‘1,200ft of secluded powdered alabaster seashore would doubtless be enough on its own, but this Antiguan boutique bolthole offers a heck of a lot more than sun-kissed beach-bumming. Intrepid types can sate their adrenalin appetite with sailing, snorkelling, windsurfing and kayaking in the brilliant, turquoise waters, while those of us who are more at home sprawled on a poolside lounger – novel in one hand, frozen margarita in the other, will be on cloud nine – potentially the only cloud you’ll encounter on your trip. Every iota of Hermitage Bay evokes hushed, head-lolling relaxation, from the bliss-inducing massages at the spa to the expansive loungers on your private terrace.’

  2. My name is AntiQua with a Q instead of a G because my grandmother named me after this island because she’s from the Bahamas and she wanted some in the family to have a beautiful name. And everywhere I go people say they love my name. OH. I love the lovely hotel that u have here in this photo. The pool is perfect for my family. It very unique than the other places that I’ve visited in my life.
