The Caribbean’s 2012 season has ushered in a bounty of new enhancements at Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort-- the renowned private island resort off the coast to Antigua. And new direct flights from JFK to Antigua on American Airlines (four times a week) means that this little sliver of paradise is within easy reach. With the launch of “Sea-to-Table Dinners,” guests can now catch their own entrée on the resort's sport fishing boat (Mahi Mahi, anyone?). After you’ve enjoyed your private day charter-- complete with a professional crew to serve up lunch, snacks and drinks-- sit down to dinner at The Verandah Restaurant, where the chef will prepare your freshly caught fish to order. Now that's our kind of private Chef’s Table feast.
In addition, the whole family can now enjoy some r&r at SENSE, A Rosewood Spa. The new Rose Buds Junior Spa Menu means that pint-sized guests (starting from age 4) can indulge with a Beach Bliss Mani ($30), Beach Bliss Pedi ($30), Mini Massage ($50), Mini Facial ($50), and Chillax, a treatment involving aromatherapy washcloths and cool cucumbers with a hand and foot massage ($50). Braiding and Hair Wraps are also available ($20 each). What’s more- the pre-teens and teens in your entourage can partake in a slew of exciting new activities- from paddle board lessons and waterskiing to Wildlife Discovery and seasonal Sea Turtle Walks with the resort’s Turtle Team.
