Insider Tip
  • Jumby Bay Resort features two beaches, Jumby Bay Beach with pristine, white sand, and Pasture Bay Beach, an untouched wild beach set aside as a protected nesting site for the Hawksbill Turtle.
Hotel Overview
  • Private island
    private island resort off the coast of Antigua, home to just 40 suites, 14 villas, and 12 Estate Homes.
  • Four-poster beds
    Suites include carved mahogany four-poster king beds.
  • Beaches, fine dining
    Property has two beaches and an 18th-century plantation house containing a fine-dining restaurant and lounge.
What to Expect:
  • Once a sugar plantation, Long Island is owned by Americans and Britons who maintain multi-million-dollar vacation homes on the island away from Jumby Bay Resort's and ensure the island's environment remains unspoiled. Endangered Hawksbill turtles lay eggs on the northern beach, their nocturnal June-November arrivals recorded by researchers and assisted by resort guests. Non-woolly feral sheep descended from ancestors left by the Spanish in the 16th century roam the island. Water birds flock to depressions that become ponds during rare heavy rains. Songbirds, mourning doves, and egrets abound. The Blue Pelican can be spotted. The island is so ideally situated to catch tradewind breezes for a long time the resort offered no air conditioning. No cars other than a small security-staff van are permitted. Guests use bicycles strategically located so they can ride or walk at will without regard for keeping track of "their" bikes. Complimentary golf-cart shuttle service is also available.
Amenity Highlights:
  • The resort's main beach curves along a calm-water bay facing Antigua Island to the west. Thatch-roof shades and thickly cushioned lounge chairs line the beach, ensuring each guest ample room for uncrowded sunbathing and swimming. (Children have their own beach and swing-set south of the resort's dock.) Another beach lies along the northern shore, providing beachcombing and snorkeling among coral heads. Secluded inland, a lap pool furnishes freshwater exercise and tranquil sunbathing.

  • The resort offers 40 guestrooms and suites located in three types of buildings widely spaced within the resort's main section on Long Island's west side. Pond Bay House is a one- and two-story Mediterranean-style white building with a red tile roof featuring an expansive Caribbean-view central terrace furnished with cushioned teak lounge chairs. Other Mediterranean-style buildings contain two suites each. The third type consists of six octagonal "rondavels" - South African-style one-story cottage-like buildings with conical wood-shingle roofs located near the Estate House, which contains the resort's main dinner restaurant and evening bar/lounge. Flowering tropical gardens screen all three types.

    Guestrooms and suites include carved mahogany or bamboo four-poster king beds (or double beds) and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts' signature Rosewood Bed bedding. This consists of an extra-thick custom-made mattress, 100-percent-Egyptian-cotton Italian-made sheets (including double-twisted satin-finish custom-stripe top sheet), and down/feather pillows. Jumby Bay beds also include feather beds atop mattresses. Thick towels, including bathsheets, furnish additional comfort. Lady Primrose toiletries supply luxury. In-room beach towels, umbrellas, and walking sticks provide convenience.

    Other features of guestrooms and suites include: white walls and ceilings with dark Brazilian-walnut trim; tile floors with bamboo mats; mahogany-colored rattan and wicker furniture; thickly cushioned teak balcony and patio furniture; Bose Wave radio/CD players; and crank-open louvered doors that allow tradewind breezes to complement ceilings fans. All guestrooms have air conditioning.

    In addition to guestrooms and suites, Jumby Bay also offers Mediterranean-style villas with red tile roofs that provide accommodations for groups or families in a "village" of flowering gardens and cobblestone streets overlooking the island's east side harbor. Set up as private homes, villas are rented out in owners' absences. Decor and furnishings vary somewhat from guestrooms and suites'. Rattan furniture is natural color rather than mahogany, and, unlike most guestrooms and suites, villas include televisions with satellite programming and DVD players. Villas contain full kitchens even though guests are included in the resort's All-Inclusive Plan. Each villa comes with a complimentary four-seat electric golf cart for getting around the island.
