Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort, lies on a 300-acre private island off the coast of Antigua. Surrounded by dazzling white sand beaches and the shimmering Caribbean Sea, and accessible only by boat, this luxury boutique resort is the ultimate tropical hideaway.

The hotel offers flawless service, exquisite accommodation and a host of incredible facilities including three restaurants, a beach bar, two pools, a fitness centre, three tennis courts and a kids’ club. The rooms, suites and villas are all decorated in an island chic style. Suites are steps from the beach and come with a private pool, where you can relax and enjoy the mesmerising sea views.
The resort is designed for pure relaxation but there is an array of activities on offer. As well as a wide range of watersports, you can play tennis, hit the gym or go on a snorkelling trip to Bird Island. Islands tours and sightseeing excursions can be arranged and Lightfoot Travel can create a bespoke itinerary to ensure to make the most of your stay. If all this seems like too much effort, simply laze by the pool or be pampered at the spa.
