Your Antigua Honeymoon At Jumby Bay Resort

Mar 11, 2008
Jumby Bay Antigua is the home of the famous Jumby Bay resort, which several years ago was almost the premier Caribbean Exclusive resort. It could today be a very good choice for a summer break, when prices are lower, and a definite possibility for an Antigua Honeymoon, which is off the beaten path.

Jumby Bay is only reachable by boat, as it is located on a three hundred acre private island of the same name, located two miles north east of Antigua. Jumby Bay resort occupies eighty five acres of the island which is home to endangered species of turtles, lizards, rare birds, and sheep.

The resort at Jumby Bay has 39 Junior Suites, and 11 two and three bedroom villas. Some of the larger villas have their own plunge pools and golf carts. All the villas are spacious and cool, with louvered doors and windows, terra cotta tiled floors, plus dark mahogany four poster beds. The amenities are plentiful with large bottles of almost everything under the sun including Aloe Vera Gel, which helps cope with the very hot sun, and air conditioning which is very necessary if you choose the heat of the summer to go to Jumby.

Jumby Bay has three quite distinctive white sand beaches for you to enjoy, and either relax on, or use for a large number of water based activities. You can partake in water skiing, wind surfing, sailing, snorkelling, kayaking and lots more, or you can just lie on a sun lounger, raising your flag prior to replenishing your cool drink. What an ideal romantic spot for an Antigua Honeymoon.

Jumby Bay resort is all inclusive which means all activities plus food and drink are included in the price you pay.

The Verandah Terrace is the place for breakfast, and many people get ready for the beach, and bike to eat breakfast first. The breakfast buffet is huge with everything you can imagine from fresh fruit, pastries, , juices, cereals, and a daily cooked special. The verandah is also where you will eat lunch and the choice is spectacular, including an open grill with meats and fish cooked to your demands. Breakfast and lunch are pretty casual affairs, although you may be accompanied by a steel band, but you can go to pasture beach with a very comprehensive packed lunch if you are on your honeymoon and want to be alone.

Afternoon tea is a feature, the traditional British pastime with sandwiches and scones, but honestly you will soone find precious little room for extra food after you have sampled the superb dinner in the evening preceded by outstanding cocktails at the Terrace Bar. Dinner is an event in itself at the Estate House most of the time, and it's nice to get smart for this event. Drinks first in the library bar upstairs, then candlelit dinner in the open air courtyard, then a culinary treat with the best food beautifully cooked and accompanied by fine wines.

Jumby Bay Resort is well worth a try in the summer if you avoid September and October when there is the chance of a hurricane. The off season rates are considerably lower for this quality Caribbean exclusive reort, and what a place for an Antigua honeymoon.
