Restaurants And Bars

Al Bandar is home to three of the resort's nine main restaurants, with our favourite being Capri Court, where authentic yet contemporary Italian dishes can be enjoyed in an intimate atmosphere. Al Tanoor is the main buffet restaurant, offering an eclectic mix of traditional Arabian, Mediterranean, Persian, Indian and Turkish cuisine, then why not head to the chic Piano Lounge for a late evening cocktail. For dining al fresco, Tapas & Sablah serves a combination of Mediterranean and Asian tapas, together with traditional mezze and shisha, in a casual piazza-style setting. There’s also Bait Al Bahr, the seafood restaurant, located between Al Waha and Al Bandar, for a romantic dinner on the elevated balcony, followed by drinks at the new rooftop BAB Lounge.

With two pools and plenty of sun loungers, it’s easy to find a quiet spot for a bit of rest and relaxation or a cooling dip.

Stay between January – July for the chance to see Al Bandar’s most heart-warming natural sight, green and hawksbill turtle hatchlings making their way into the sea for the first time.

Antigua

Make sure you pack something white to wear to the resort’s legendary ‘White Night’ beach party - a lavish occasion, the beach is lit by tiki torches and a sumptuous buffet is accompanied by live Caribbean music.

Jumby Bay has some of the friendliest staff we’ve met anywhere in the Caribbean - guests here are assured of a warm welcome and the most attentive service.

We love the beautifully re-designed Estate House restaurant - inspired by the island’s rich history and traditions, the elegant interiors are complemented by some of the finest cuisine in the Caribbean.
