Jumby Bay Ranked One of Conde Nast Traveler's Top Resorts2015-12-28
Planning a honeymoon, girls' getaway or solo retreat to rest and relax in the lap of luxury? Why not choose one of Conde Nast Traveler's 11 top-ranked hotels, each of which scored nearly 100 percent ratings by readers who have traveled across the world?
Rosewood Resort's Jumby Bay is one of these prized locales. The Caribbean oasis is situated just two miles north of Antigua in the West Indies, featuring a beautiful design and architecture that mimics the British Colonial era. Boasting 300 acres of property, the island is a dream for wildlife enthusiasts, as diverse species roam the beaches and tropical forests year round, including the blue pelican, white egret and herds of sheep.
No matter what you're looking for in your vacation, you're sure to find it here on Jumby Bay Island.
Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, the island was not claimed by British settlers until 1632. Its name comes from the Antiguan term "jumbie," which is slang for "playful spirit." When you arrive, you'll discover within seconds just how playful you can get on this island with its abundance of adventure excursions, spacious luxury vacation rentals and bustling nightlife spots like the Verandah Restaurant & Bar, Beach Bar or the Estate House.
What to Expect
Get ready to set your expectations to the sky at this resort, especially since their $28 million renovation has been completed. Fortunately, every expectation is spectacularly matched - and sometimes even blown away by even more spectacular accommodations than you anticipated. Most rooms offer unparalleled views of the Caribbean Sea, and a handful of suites are specifically designed for those who seek privacy among a gorgeous tropical landscape.
Dine Like Royalty
Much of the renovation went into the dining amenities offered on-site at this gorgeous resort, and one of the most pristine additions is The Verandah. Overlooking the sea, this dining room spills out onto an outdoor terrace and is arguably the best place on the island to watch the setting sun. Gourmet dishes like grilled lobster and prime steaks are on the menu, while more casual lunch items are also featured for those in search of a light meal.
Hit the Beachside Bar
Looking to mingle with other vacationers? Then head to the Beach Bar, an open bungalow situated halfway down Jumby Bay Beach. This spot is brimming with socialites who are looking for a refreshing afternoon cocktail and a fresh towel to use after taking a dip in the refreshing Caribbean waters. Even if you're too comfortable to move from your lounge chair, don't fret, because Rosewood Resort staff members are keen to notice when a guest's beverage is looking a bit low.
Ideal for Everyone
No matter how big your vacation group is, you can find the right accommodations for the whole family. Traveling with little ones is not a dreaded task here, especially with the exciting Pasture Beach, which features a protected nesting site of the endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtle.
