Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort

Call us for prices & availability


Enjoy a wonderful castaway feel at Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort. Nestled on a private island just two miles away from Antigua and accessed only by boat, your holiday will feel unbelievably exclusive and exciting before you’ve even stepped on the sandy shores.

Adorned with sweeping gardens filled with tropical flora, Jumby Bay is incredibly picturesque. You’ll indulge in an authentic island experience where no cars are in sight, and all you’re left with is pristine white sand beaches, charming accommodation, sensational eateries, and a never-ending view of turquoise ocean. Grab your complimentary bike, and explore the winding tracks that lead you through the unspoilt surroundings.

The Rondavel Rooms and One-Bedroom Suites are found on the western side of the island, all found in characterful octagonal-shaped cottages, whilst the Beachside Suites are an indulgent choice with their private courtyards leading on to the beach.

Fancy really treating yourself? The villas and estate houses here are truly spectacular. Ranging from open-plan villas boasting expansive outdoor living spaces and private pools, to grand estate houses with their own tennis courts, this is your chance to really indulge in some luxury.

Restaurants range from the classy, colonial-style Estate House serving sumptuous fine-dining dishes, to the more relaxed Beach Shack offering classic Caribbean street food on the sugary sands.

Sense, A Rosewood Spa is simply breath-taking. Blending Antigua’s local culture with native therapies and local ingredients, this holistic spa will take you on a rejuvenating journey, using the soft waves and gentle breeze to really relax the mind, body and soul. There are plenty of fun complimentary water sports to enjoy too, and visit between July and November and you may spot endangered hawksbill sea turtles.
