Luxury Holidays At The Inn At English Harbour

The Inn at English Harbour is set amongst nineteen acres of lush, manicured gardens on a stretch of white-sand beach, its pretty wooded headland overlooking Nelson’s Dockyard, the former British Navy base of Admiral Horatio Nelson. The naval activity is now long gone and in its place a constant stream of super yachts motor at the marina and a laid-back utopia presides. Visitors are required to do little more than relax and you couldn't find a more perfect place to do this  than at The Inn at English Harbour. Luxurious guest rooms and suites each boast a private veranda or terrace, flat-screen television, an iPod docking station, internet access and décor in neutral tones. The two beachfront cabanas provide classic accommodation just steps from the waters edge, with the selection of land and water-based sport activities providing guests with the option of being as active or relaxed as they wish to be.

Relax on a luxurious sun lounger or traditional island hammock under the glorious rays, whilst cooling trade winds and the shade of palm trees ensure that you are the perfect temperature. Without leaving the private beach, enjoy vibrant, traditional dishes and cocktails at Reef Restaurant as you watch the striking yachts sail into bay.

Whether on an unforgettable honeymoon or simply a special couple's retreat, The Inn at English Harbour has put lovers at the forefront of their vision. For unparalleled privacy and romantic sea and sunset views, book your stay in a luxurious beach cabana for two. The Solitary Beach package provides inimitable intimacy as you enjoy a night of passion - alongside chilled champagne and tapas - on a fully private stretch of sand, whilst the Yachting Couple package embraces English Harbour's boating heritage, offering quality time aboard a luxury yacht.

Spa Breaks

With its minimalist Asian and Caribbean design, The Inn at English Harbour's spa is an elegant and serene sanctuary in which you can re-energise your body and soul. Embracing the captivating natural landscape of Antigua, the various massages, facials, scrubs and aromatherapy treatments use essential oils coaxed from leaves, tree bark and flower petals. Sip from a selection of wellness teas, available in the adjacent spa library or out on the chess deck; visit the fully equipped fitness suite - an elegant and natural extension of the tranquil spa - or improve your spiritual health with contemplation and meditation sessions.

Culture & History

A trip to Nelson's Dockyard is also worth a visit; so called because in the 18th and 19th century the dock was used as the repair station for British ships and was therefore inhabited by many Naval officers, including the acclaimed Admiral Nelson. Today, the vicinity had been transformed into a restored Georgian tourist attraction, housing the Naval Yard Museum which was formerly the Naval Officers House (Nelson included), and various charming shops and restaurants. A complimentary water taxi is available to transport guests into English Harbour and the surrounding coastline on a fixed timetable. Currently, guests do not have to pay to visit Nelson's Dockyard National Park, however, should you leave to visit shops and restaurants outside of the historic dockyard area, there may be a fee to re-enter when returning to the point from which the water taxi operates.

In Addition

The hotel couldn't be better located in Antigua during sailing week –  at the end of every day's racing every yacht that has taken part, salutes the hotel guests either by all the crew on deck waving, or all the crew on deck and the firing of a cannon.

A water taxi is available to transport guests into English Harbour and the surrounding coastline. This operates to a fixed timetable with two sailings each way in the morning and two in the afternoon. Guests should be aware that the Inn at English Harbour is located within Nelson's Dockyard National Park. Currently, guests do not have to pay to visit the national park, however, should they leave to visit shops and restaurants outside of the historic dockyard area, they may be charged a fee to re-enter when returning to the point from which the water taxi operates. We would also like to ask that guests note that The Inn At English Harbour no longer operate an on-request water taxi service.
