Just as the other reviewers have said, this resort is absolutely amazing. We loved the food, it's beautiful, and it's incredibly relaxing, but I figured I would touch upon a few things I haven't read as much in other reviews. I am a vegetarian and wasn't sure how many meal choices I would have since there is a small menu....

Celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, we could not have picked a more perfect place. From the moment you arrive, mojito's were waiting with a genuine welcome. Service was impeccable during our week's stay led by (in no particular order): Jason- server, Vera & Annette- dining hosts, Linda & Alex- bar, Cynthia- floral & lobby housekeeping, Jamal- beach, and Ryan/Jamal- shuttle....

We had the pleasure of celebrating our Honeymoon at Hermitage Bay. The place is gorgeous and the staff are awesome.

This place exceeded our (high) expectations. It is the perfect honeymoon location. The property is gorgeous (the architecture and landscaping make it stand out compared to other resorts on the island), and the staff are the real key to it's success. Every staff person there is elegant, professional, and full of personality. We felt like they were hosting us as...

I had been planning our Hermitage Bay wedding for almost a year, and I can truly say it was everything I hoped for and much more. It is even more beautiful than the photographs, the beach, the pool, our private plunge pool in our suite - it was all beyond our expectations, but the best part of the trip was...

My wife and visited Hermitage Bay for our 35th wedding anniversary. Our son and daughter-in-law had gone three years ago on their honeymoon and had raved, so we decided to try it. It was everything they had said it would be. The facility is nice in a rustic way. It is not US resort polished, but it is a beautiful...

My wife and I went the first week in June for our 30th birthdays, 5 year wedding anniversary, and our first trip by ourselves without 2 kids since our honeymoon. I was hesitant at first because of the cost, but it was worth every penny and then some!!! Hermitage Bay was simply amazing. The service was first class, the accommodations...

Very nice beach and location, hotel has very good accommodations. For me 5 stars is truly a great experience, in this case I would not go so far. Restaurant good in general, but could be better. Service was good, but not excellent.

If you're on tripadvisor then you're probably trying to decide whether or not Hermitage Bay is worth your hard earned money. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there in 2010 and I'm STILL thinking about how amazing our vacation was! (Although, it didn't help my horrible procrastination!) In an effort to fully experience Antigua, we stayed in several different...

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
