Trip Report: Hermitage Bay

Hermitage Bay is located on the west coast of Antigua approximately 35 minutes from the airport. Overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea this independent luxury property offers guests a tranquil tropical hideaway that is perfect for romance and relaxation  The accommodations are comprised of 25 spacious freestanding cottages enveloped in over 140 acres of natural seclusion. Guests of Hermitage Bay truly feel as if they have been transported to their own private island.

Though the setting encourages a very natural, authentic Caribbean experience where you are free to escape your everyday life, the resort also ensures that the comforts of home are readily available, ultimately providing the best of both worlds.

We stayed for three nights and had the opportunity to experience both a Beachfront Cottage and a Hillside Pool Suite. Don’t miss the photo tour at the end of the post!
