Blue Pelican at Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort
Posted: 11 January 2016
Holidays in resorts can be perfection. The impeccable service, trove of activities and gastronomic delights are a refined art form that only five-star hotels truly know the secret of. But, sometimes, we feel we have outgrown our hotel guest rooms. Sometimes, we crave a little independence, space and, even more so, a little privacy from our neighbours. Sometimes, what we need, is something like a villa...
The good news is, these days, a villa doesn’t have to mean taking your holiday entirely into your own hands. A more modern breed of resort villas offer us a solution many of us crave – to enjoy the luxury and privacy of your own villa, with all the comforts and assistance of a hotel resort. That’s why we are delighted to be expanding our collection of featured private estate homes at Jumby Bay, a Rosewood Resort.
This island resort, set just two miles off the northern shore of Antigua, is already a favourite for those looking for a discreet beach holiday. Along with forty guest rooms and suites, a collection of private villas are featured, and, for the pinnacle of sophistication, a selection of individually designed private estate homes. These homes, carefully plotted in ambient spots across the island, where you never feel deserted or overcrowded, make up what is, perhaps, the finest gathering of properties in the Caribbean. Now, we invite you to browse the four latest additions to our portfolio, and discover for yourself the heightened level of luxury on offer.
The largest of our newly featured properties is Turtle Crossing, boasting an impressive seven bedrooms, tennis court and basketball court, along with a majestic tower terrace located on the third level of the property. Here, is a perfect spot for sipping cocktails with friends as the sun sets. Evangeline, with five bedrooms, is ideal for a jovial reunion with family or friends, with rooms thoughtfully arranged around a central courtyard, with a spectacular Great Room at the heart, opening up to a stunning infinity pool. Sandpiper Beach House, again with five bedrooms, perches happily on the beachfront, meaning you can walk straight from your room onto your own patch of pristine sand on Davis Bay. Blue Pelican, meanwhile, is a wonderfully grand affair, with six bedrooms, plush interiors, a carefully landscaped garden leading down to Pelican Beach, and a unique stone sugar mill, from which you can enjoy a three-hundred-and-sixty degree view of the island.
With a Jumby Bay private estate home, the island truly becomes yours. You are not limited to your villa grounds by any means – electric golf carts are even provided, allowing you to roam your surroundings with ease. You can trundle on down to Jumby Bay Beach, where the most attentive attendants cater to your every desire, whether that be a frozen daiquiri or fresh fruit smoothie delivered straight to your hand, as you gently sway the day away in your hammock. Alternatively, you can take a moment for yourself, with an indulgent treatment at the spa after dropping little ones off at Rose Buds children’s club, and, later, if you feel like a change from private dining in your villa with your own personal chef, stop for a bite to eat at the beachside restaurant. And, of course, there is always plenty to see and do over on the mainland of Antigua - see our destination guide for a little inspiration.
