Jumby Bay Island, the luxurious private island resort located just off the coast of Antigua, has been voted the #1 Resort in the Caribbean and the 5th best Resort in the World for 2017 by the sophisticated readers of Condé Nast Traveler. This news coincides with the recent announcement that Jumby Bay Island has just joined Oetker Collection as its latest masterpiece. The longtime luxury Caribbean favorite secured the honorable rankings by over 300,000 readers who submitted millions of ratings and tens of thousands of comments, voting on a record-breaking 7,320 hotels and resorts and 225 islands.
Reopened in October 2017 as part of Oetker Collection, Jumby Bay Island is set on 120 hectares of cultivated landscape, surrounded by white sand beaches and turquoise water that is accessible only by boat, with not a car in sight. The island offers a well-established luxury resort with 40 rooms and suites, three restaurants and excellent spa and fitness facilities, water sports opportunities, three tennis courts and 36 individually designed private villas and homes including staff.
The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.”
Jumby Bay Island is an inclusive luxury retreat set on its own enchanting 300-acre private island two miles off the coast of Antigua in the West Indies. Accessible only by boat, the resort offers upscale travelers a relaxed and authentic Caribbean escape with superb white-sand beaches and lush tropical environs. The ultra-luxe hideaway features a spa, 40 spacious suites and accommodations, beachfront Verandah Restaurant, Pool Grille bistro-style restaurant, and multi-million-dollar Estate Homes with private pools, tennis courts, and full access to the many amenities of Jumby Bay. In January 2016, the resort’s signature bar and restaurant, the Estate House, closed for a comprehensive restoration and reopened in late 2016 with a fresh look, feel, and menu concept. For active travelers, Jumby Bay offers watersports, tennis, hiking and biking trails, and an oceanfront infinity pool, as well as a new fitness pavilion that includes a stunning yoga deck for pre-spa meditation and intimate yoga instruction. In 2017, the AAA Five-Diamond property was ranked among the “Best Hotels in the Caribbean” by U.S. News & World Report and the resort also earned five stars in Forbes Travel Guide’s 2017 star rating awards.
