Luxury Experiences in Antigua and Barbuda
Posted on 05/31/2023
Looking for a luxurious secluded destination for your next vacation? Look no further than Antigua and Barbuda, twin Caribbean islands offering amazing beaches, breezy boutique hideaways, private villas and much more! The islands of Antigua and Barbuda are located in the heart of the Caribbean, surrounded by natural beauty. Thanks to a volcanic eruption around 30 million years ago, gorgeous reefs have formed around Antigua. Both islands make for two uniquely distinct experiences, ideal temperatures year-round, a rich history, vibrant culture, exhilarating excursions, award-winning resorts and mouth-watering cuisine.
Private villas or breathtaking boutique properties?
Be inspired by the uniqueness and variety of the villas and condos in Antigua & Barbuda. From Caribbean flavoured properties, to Dutch or Italian influenced villas… there is a broad selection of villa styled vacations from which to choose. From English Harbour, South Points has 23 condo-style waterfront suites that allow access to a pool, a small private beach and dock. There are the hilltop hideaways at the Italian designed B&B Arca Villa or the elegance of Giorgio Armani’s Villa Flower and Villa Serena overlooking Galley Bay.
If boutique properties and bespoke comfort are your preference, choose from properties that offer exclusive beachfront views and award-winning services and amenities. Think ‘cottages with a Caribbean flare’ such as The Cocobay Resort, an adults-only all-inclusive retreat or romance at The Keyonna Beach Resort with its cottages that extend over a 1000-foot long beach.
Over to the island of Barbuda, Barbuda Belle is an intimate property of 8 immaculately luxurious beachfront bungalows. Exclusivity is part of its irresistible appeal with rooms offering gorgeous views of the nearby Codrington Lagoon Park. This remote and secluded property acts as an ideal sanctuary for a greater adventure on Barbuda, letting visitors observe the captivating wildlife as they enjoy the island’s trademark pink sands.
Barbuda, a remote extravagant adventure!
Barbuda, the lesser known but equally magnificent sister island is located 28 miles from Antigua, offering privacy and abundant wildlife to all who visit. Just a short ferry ride away from Antigua, it is ideal for those looking to relax without any prying eyes. Largely unspoilt, Barbuda is a gem that many do not know exists. Imagine standing on a 16-kilometre-long beach, named after Princess Diana, with nothing but the sand between your toes and a view of the ocean that would take your breath away…. not to mention the sand is an astonishing pink colour!
However, this is not to say there is nothing to do on Barbuda. On the contrary, Barbuda’s wild character has caught the attention of many high-profile individuals, most famously Oscar winner and internationally acclaimed actor, Robert De Niro. De Niro has generated a lot of buzz surrounding the island as he, over the next few years, develops his hotel, Nobu Beach Inn on the island. One of the most notable accomplishments of this project is installing a fully operational Nobu restaurant hidden on the island. Nobu Restaurant, the globally recognized star of Japanese cuisine, offers Barbudan patrons the opportunity to experience its delicacy while gazing upon the waters of the Caribbean!
The best way to ‘Sea’ the islands
Antigua offers many boat races which is a great way to pass time on the island. Whether you are on your yacht or land you are able to observe these intense races. One event, in particular, that is worth attending is Antigua Sailing Week. Over 100 yachts partake in the race each year, varying in size from 24 feet to over 100 feet. Another event that you can’t miss is the Super Yacht Challenge. It consists of four days full of breathtaking races that are sure to get you on your feet cheering.
Your travel experience in Antigua and Barbuda is unparalleled, as the islands offer magnificent accommodations, restaurants and activities. With hundreds of different beaches (dare we say, one for every day of the year?) and 30 offshore islands, Antigua and Barbuda are well suited for every one of your travel needs.
