In this article, we reveal Antigua's best fashionable hotels

Stay in style at Jumby Bay Island

Enjoy the utmost exclusivity at Jumby Bay Island. Located on its own island off the coast of Antigua, this resort is world-famous for attracting celebrity guests who want to enjoy a secluded paradise. It's no wonder this hotel is also one of the most expensive on the island. 

You’ll be immersed in beach-chic style as you enjoy a more laid-back lifestyle in the resort. There are no cars allowed on the island; you can truly enjoy unspoilt natural beauty wherever you go. 

Jumby Bay Island is one of the most desirable and exclusive retreats in the Caribbean. The ancient coral reef was first discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, and it got its name from ‘jumbie’, meaning playful spirit. And that's exactly what you'll get here whether you're taking to the tennis courts, heading to the ocean for a range of water sports or exploring the nature trails that snake through the island. 

Sink into a heavenly oasis at the Jumby Bay Spa, which has a variety of reinvigorating treatments. One of the most indulgent treatments is a massage using natural ingredients such as coconut lemongrass and Aloe Vera to relax your mind, body and soul. 

For the utmost luxury, book a table at the Estate House, where you can tuck into modern Caribbean cuisine whilst taking in stunning panoramic views.  If you want the trendiest accommodation in the Caribbean, book the Pool Suite, which comes with its own private pool or one of the exquisite villas.
