Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua to Open in 2021


Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed to manage Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua, which is set to open in 2021. The resort will be located on the site of the former Half Moon Bay Resort in the Caribbean West Indies, which was established in the 1950s.

The resort will be situated on 132 oceanfront acres along Half Moon Bay. The former Half Moon Bay Hotel was, for decades, a sought-after vacation destination and resort playground for the international jetsetter.    

The resort will have 47 pavilion-style suites, including an ultra-luxurious, three-bedroom presidential suite. Each accommodation will have ocean views and such amenities as private infinity plunge pools, hammocks, open-air baths and showers, and live orchid walls in each bathroom.

Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua will also offer an exclusive residential component comprised of branded oceanfront and ocean view villas, and 13 estate home parcels. The crown jewel property, which was previously owned by the Mellon Family, is perched on a dramatic bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

The resort will also include several dining and lounge concepts. Situated on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the resort’s signature lounge will be inspired by the flavors, colors, and culture of the West Indies. Artisanal Caribbean cocktails and small plates accompanied by live reggae and ska music will set the atmosphere for a lively night out.  

The resort will also have a pool grill and beach bar, as well as an on-site organic farm, which will provide fresh ingredients for seasonal fare year-around. 

Additional property amenities will include two pools, one for adults and one for families, a fitness center, and tennis courts. Additionally, Sense, a Rosewood Spa, will offer six signature treatment rooms and locally inspired treatments.

Rosewood Half Moon Bay will join a regional network of distinctive Rosewood properties in the region, including Rosewood Baha Mar, slated to open in the spring; Rosewood Bermuda, which will undergo a complete renovation to be unveiled in May and Rosewood Little Dix Bay, slated to re-open at a later date.
