Delightfully remote, the island is only reachable by boat, and with cars banned completely, Jumby Bay has a rare serenity and exclusivity. A vision of beauty, the island has attracted seafarers, naturalists and historians for centuries after its discovery in 1493 by Christopher Columbus. The resort is aptly names after the Antiguan word ‘jumbie’, meaning ‘playful spirit’. With fun environmental initiatives to partake in, including the preservation of endangered Hawksbill Turtles and 4.5 miles of stunning beaches, guests are enveloped in exquisite natural splendour.
Enjoy a diversified mix of local and international cuisine at the resort’s dining restaurants. Dine under the stars at seafront restaurant The Verandah, and take your pick from signature global dishes such as paella, curry and locally-caught seafood specialties. The Pool Grille is the place for lackadaisical lounging; sample snacks, casual bistro fare, cocktails and smoothies while overlooking the infinity pool. West Indian dishes are the hallmark of the kitchen in The Beach Shack; satisfy culinary cravings with flavoursome local street food, including ceviche, rotis and lobster. For a prelude to dinner, or a delicious sundowner, visit The Beach Bar, a traditional open bungalow with a thatched bohio.
Sense Spa leads guests to new depths of relaxation. Experience true serendipity and become immersed in Antiguan local culture while by the sea. The spa is charmingly authentic, open to the tropical climate and inspired by the island’s own sugar mill ruin, with vaulted ceilings and stone entryways. Treatments are designed to counterbalance any stresses or problem areas through the integration of native ingredients grown in the resort’s own gardens.
