Return to Jumby Bay




One of the more iconic resorts in the Caribbean is Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort, which is why we felt a bit lost when it closed in June 2008 for a gigantic refurb.

Well, we decided to put our sadness to rest and instead think about other things, and wouldn’t you know it, a year later, we have word that the Antigua property is ready to reopen on December 1. As we always have said, a good $28 million renovation wouldn’t be complete without adding on a fabulous new spa—and that is indeed the case here. Sense, A Rosewood Spa is actually the first-ever pampering facility for Jumby Bay and we hear it will have five oceanview treatment rooms and signature treatments that use ingredients indigenous to the area.

What are some of the other treats Jumby Bay will introduce to its loyal followers? We’re all over the new infinity pool and the spiffy new bistro that overlooks it. There’s also the new, open-air Verandah restaurant.

Here’s the scoop on the 28 new suites: All have great views of the Caribbean. Twelve octoganal  Rondavel Rooms sit on the quieter western side of the property. To the north, 15 Beachside Courtyard Suites are clustered around an open-air courtyard and the new oceanfront infinity pool. Eleven secluded Oceanfront Pool Suites have great views of Jumby Bay Beach, while two Rosewood Estate Suites have the option of one or two additional connecting suites. If you’re feeling crazy over the top, opt for one of the new Estate Homes, which are nearly 10,000 square feet in size and cost $18 million apiece to build.
