Jumby Bay Island
Two miles off Antigua's north-eastern coast lies the country's best kept secret, a private 300 acres long gem of pristine beaches accessible only by boat and comprising a selection of luxury suites and villas in a private island setting.
One of the most secluded of Caribbean hideaways, Jumby Bay has the unique background story of once being an ancient coral reef originally discovered by Columbus in 1493. Starting off as a sugar mill, after a series of owners, a small group of homeowners decided to buy the whole island to protect it from becoming overpopulated and to preserve its secluded ambience. It was then that they hired Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to manage the resort with the focus of keeping Jumby Bay as a unique ultra-luxurious island resort at the top of its class.
