The Caribbean island of Antigua is open for business following the devastating Hurricane Irma earlier this month. Many of the island nation’s attractions, activities, restaurants and hotels have reopened to the public, and many more will reopen over the next couple of months before the peak winter season begins. The island’s airport and cruise berths have also re-opened to travellers.
Stars from reality TV show The Only Way is Essex shared a series of instagram snaps documenting their summer holidays on the Caribbean island of Antigua last month. Couples Amber Dowding and Chris Clark, and Courtney Green and Myles Barnett photographed themselves staying at luxury resorts Pineapple Beach Club and St James Club and Villas.
Antiqua's famed Jolly Beach Resort & Spa will come under the management of Blue Diamond beginning on September 1. The resort is considered one of Antigua's best all-inclusive resorts. Blue Diamond is based in Toronto but is the fastest growing resort chain in the Caribbean, with 14,000 rooms in six countries.
The Minister of Tourism for Antigua and Barbuda, Asot Michael, has announced its plans to enhance the cruise facilities on the twin-island Caribbean nation. The smaller island of Barbuda is to be turned into a cruise destination, while the main island of Antigua will see further construction work following an investment of nearly $50 million in the main harbour in St Johns last year.
Adding to its boutique charm and sense of intimacy, the all-inclusive, adults-only Cocos Hotel Antigua has recently added a new set of two exclusive villas that come with private plunge pools overlooking the ocean. These latest additions to the small and elegant adults-only resort increases the total number of signature cottages to three. Now guests can choose from two more accommodation options at this cosy village-style hideaway.
