Jumby Bay Island, An Oetker Collection Hotel

Jumby Bay, Antigua

What it is

A 300-acre island transformed into the ultimate Caribbean play-land.

What it isn't

Teeming with tourists. You’ll feel like you own this private island—yet have the doting staff and umpteen amenities of any megaresort.

What we think

If the Caribbean often feels overwhelming to you—so built-up and over-visited it’s practically paradise lost—consider Jumby Bay Island paradise found. At this storied, exclusive property (now part of the Oetker Collection, which includes the Eden Rock in St. Barths and the Bristol in Paris) with just 40 villas, you’ll be sharing the pristine white sand beaches with the occasional migratory bird but not many other people. The terra cotta–roofed villas and guest rooms have a leisurely, open-air plantation vibe, with mahogany four-poster beds, wraparound terraces and outdoor garden snowers. The food is so fresh (it’s mostly local), you’ll feel like you’ve invested in a detox spa getaway—without the pressure of boot camp. Don’t miss dining in the circa 1830 plantation home, just revamped to the tune of $6 million. Jumby Bay is attentive to children, with tailored kids' programs (zip lining! cooking courses!) and even calm inlets for kiddo-approved beach play. But—perk of all perks—the island itself isn’t overrun with wee ones.

You're here because

"Exclusive" and "laid-back" are synonyms in your dictionary. An island that's private, car-free, and spread out is perfect for a family vacation that's both luxurious and low-key.

The Moment

Wandering through the island’s lush pasture grasses, you feel blissfully alone—until you encounter a flock of black and white sheep, descendants of the ones that first landed here four centuries ago. You never thought you’d be jealous of a sheep but—wow, what a life.

Location

A 10-minute high-speed boat ride from Antigua. The resort’s fleet of bicycles will be your preferred mode of transport for whirls around the island, wind dancing in your hair.
