Jumby Bay has a reputation that precedes it – world-class, exclusive and distinguished. It is a mecca for the discerning traveller looking for a secluded hideaway on a beautiful private island just two miles from Antigua. This Rosewood Resort sits, somewhat statesman-like, overlooking the glistening waters of the Caribbean Sea and is skirted by powdery white sands. It’s a holiday retreat that grants dreams and no end of leisurely pastimes from sunrise to sunset.
08.00 Breakfast Ease into your day with breakfast at open-airrestaurant, The Verandah, and choose from a classic menu with a Caribbean twist, as the sea breeze gently drifts by and you work out how to fill your precious hours.
10.00 Mid Morning Dip your toes in the warm Caribbean waters or take a guided snorkelling or kayak tour.
12.00 Lunchtime Choose to picnic on the island’s most isolated beach, Pasture Bay, home to the endangered Hawksbill Turtle or drop in at The Pool Grille & Bar where you can indulge in fresh fish tacos or a variety of sandwiches and salads under shaded canopies.
14.00 Afternoon Hop on a bike and take a tour around the island’s 300 secluded acres or relax in Sense, A Rosewood Spa® and treat yourself to one of the Sense Experiences, designed to soothe body and soul.
16.00 Mid Afternoon Play a spot of croquet on the magnificent lawns, enjoy an energetic game of beach volleyball or cool off in one of the two swimming pools whilst dedicated pool attendants bring you chilled towels, iced fruit and delicious homemade sorbets.
18.00 Evening Wander along Jumby Bay Beach or rock gently in one of the hammocks strung between rustling palms. If you still have energy to spare, play tennis. The courts are flood-lit so even the setting sun won’t stop play.
20.00 Dinner Choose the Spanish colonial style Estate House for fine dining, with its Mediterranean-inspired menu, or opt for a romantic torch-lit dinner for two on the beach.
From sunrise to sunset it’s unlikely you will have a minute to spare. Whatever your bidding, Jumby Bay has thought of everything.
