Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort, is a fabulous all-inclusive luxury retreat, set on its own enchanting 300-acre private island, two miles off the coast of Antigua.
When it was a privately owned estate, elegant partygoers famously waded into the surf at night carrying lanterns, laughing and chasing lobsters in what is still the clearest water in the Caribbean. Happily there is something special about this island that means that this spirit has remained, enabling it to somehow captivate the human psyche. It’s a truly unique and wonderful place.

The Estate House is the epitome of stylish dining in a delightful Caribbean setting. Set overlooking the sea and the lights of Antigua and surrounded by a fragrant garden of palm trees, hibiscus and wild orchids, the classic colonial house (c. 1830) was once the centerpiece of the island sugar plantation. Now it's a sanctuary of civilized dining highlighted by romantic sophistication with Italian-inspired cuisine.
Set next to the sparkling sea, the open-air restaurant welcomes diners amid cool sea breezes. Stylish without being pretentious, the sun-filled setting is perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner served daily in light and modern style. In the afternoon and evening, toes-in-the-sand elegance reigns as guests indulge in bistro fare of freshly caught seafood, hearth-baked specialties and select prime and aged steaks.
Christopher Columbus landed here. The Lignum Vitae, or "tree of life," grew here. Emancipated slaves gained freedom early here. The island has been claimed by royalty, possessed by smugglers, and in 1915, owned by an unusually free-spirited, pipe-smoking woman. When it was a private estate, partygoers waded into the surf at night carrying lanterns, scooping up lobsters for dinner. Elegant women with skirts hoisted, gentlemen with clenched cigars...laughing and chasing lobsters in what is still the clearest water in the Caribbean. The island has always been provocative, coaxing its visitors to live large and sensually. This spirit persists at Jumby Bay in a setting that is unearthly in its beauty and captivatingly human in character.
