This is our last night at HB. We have a hillside suite w/a pool. Well worth the extra money. There are other hotels that describe themselves as barefoot elegance. Well, this is the refined cousin. Most people come here for the beach, the food. But your lasting memory is the staff. They go out of their way to accomodate you....

It's tough to write a "short" review for a place that excels in every category. The food was nothing short of fantastic. The views were beautiful. The drinks were ready for you whenever you wanted one. Our suite and plunge pool made it difficult for us to even venture down to the beach! The staff was spectacular. I can't wait...

The staff made us feel very comfortable. The relaxing feel of the resort was a big plus. Alison and the rest of the reception staff was exceptional and attentive to all our needs. The food and dining experience was one of the best on the island. Will definitely return on our next trip to Antigua.

Unbelievable is a major understatement! Hermitage Bay is a dream come true. The resort was recommended to us by 'Unforgettable Honeymoons'...and THANK GOD! We would never have known of it, but now we desperately want to get back. We had suite 25...and the views were to die for. The hillside suite was truly unbelievable....both my wife and I were stunned...

Incredible hotel! It's exactly what we were looking for in our honeymoon after spending a week in NYC. In the hillside cottages you have a private pool and amazing views of the beach and the bay, and you can also enjoy sunset every evening. In the cottage you never see or hear anyone else so it feels quiet and secluded....

I'll be quick. This place is absolutely gorgeous and everyone on the staff is amazing at what they do. We were in suite 33 and it had a great view and we never heard anyone around us. The rooms were cleaned twice a day and the evening service was great. The food was amazing. I didn't care much for the...

We just got back from a week long vacation at Hermitage Bay. The owners of this resort did a magnificent job of fitting in the cottages within the beauty of the area. If you want a sterile high tech resort, this is not the place for you. If you want to blend in with the nature and beauty of this...

We were celebrating our 16 year anniversary and I honestly could not have been more impressed. My husband had arranged rose petals and a message spelled out on the floor of our cabana and Allison made sure everything was taken care of...even going over and above what was requested. I can not say enough how SUPERB the staff was. Everything...

Our week in Hermitage Bay was exceptional. Previous reviews have praised the resort staff, and we agree that they are the heart of Hermitage Bay. Here are a few examples: Vera, the restaurant manager, brought a footstool to the dinner table when she noticed that my feet (yes, I am vertically challenged!) did not rest on the floor. I would...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2015 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 27 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
