My husband and I stayed at Hermitage in Feb. 2017. All I can say is relaxation, pampering and amazing! The accommodations are outstanding and the private pool is a nice touch. The views from our villa was to die for. The food and drinks will leave you craving for more. Each dining experience is unique and unforgettable. The nightly entertainment...

My husband and I went for our honeymoon in February 2017. The entire time that we were there, we kept talking about how we don't think we could have a picked a place with a prettier view, better service and better food. Everything was AMAZING. We will definitely try to come back in a few years. The villas with the...

we just got back from 5 days at Hermitage. It is a beautiful property... the room is lovely and that is definitely what you will enjoy most there. 5 days was more than enough for us...with only 1 restaurant it can get a bit repetitive. The beach is not the white sand that we are used to... a bit shelly...

Dear Mira C I am sorry we didn't meet your expectations. I was surprised to hear that you found the fact that we have only one restaurant 'can get a bit repetitive' since we attempt to address this by changing the menu daily both for dinner and lunch. Furthermore you do not necessarily need to eat in the restaurant. You...

We've been many 5 star resorts, but we rate Hermitage Bay as the best! The cottage with its infinity edge pool, the gourmet dining, the magnificent beach, and the friendly staff made us feel totally welcome and surrounded by top flight luxury !

Excellent staff who are cheerful. And anxious to please. Wonderful location offering privacy. Excellent facilities for water sports. For us the draw to return is the excellent varied food which is superlbly presented and a great variety of choice. The one feature which could be improved is the patio furniture on the beach suites. There is a large bed and...

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Hermitage Bay. The people are so lovely and the food was delicious. The beach is very relaxing and we loved how quiet it was. We needed a break from reality and this place delivered. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this resort!

We loved the villas with private infinity plunge pools, the fantastic food from a CIA trained chef, the kind and efficient employees who provided perfect service in all departments and the overall feel of an eco-friendly resort that was in every way luxurious and perfect. The beach was the best we've seen in the Caribbean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2017 & 2016 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 30 luxury cottages so that "even at its busiest, the place seems remote and quaint." Whether visiting for the first time or returning as a friend, you'll enjoy a welcome familiarity and "sensation of belonging" from the moment you arrive. Tucked into a beautiful bay in one of the most secluded corners of Antigua, it is perfect for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Spanning 16 acres of lush tropical gardens, our eco-chic, luxury hotel provides all the comforts of a 5 star resort without compromising the natural habitat that thrives around it. Our open-air facilities, extensive beach and detached rooms allow you to unwind in isolated luxury. Each of the 7 Beachfront and 3 Garden Suites features a spacious split level lounge and patio, while the large wrap-around decks and private plunge pools of the 17 Hillside Pool Suites afford the added luxury of soaking up the Caribbean sun from the privacy of your own sun bathing deck. Whether enjoying lunch by the pool, dining in the beachfront restaurant, or having breakfast in bed, every meal feels privately catered. The menus change daily and feature freshly squeezed local juices, locally grown produce, and organic ingredients. At Hermitage Bay, all dishes are prepared to order, special requests are encouraged, and we are always happy to help with dietary requirements. Non-motorised water sports are included and a shuttle service to and from town and Shirley Heights is available for an additional charge. ... more   less
