An understated luxury haven in the heart of the Caribbean is The Inn at English Harbour, Antigua. With just 28 cabanas and suites, The Inn at English Harbour is the Caribbean option for discerning travellers and couples looking for an authentic, intimate yet luxurious holiday experience.
Ideally located on the captivating southern coast of Antigua, The Inn offers a beachfront location and sits on the gentle slopes on the south western tip of the island. The Inn is also just two minutes by complimentary water taxi from Nelson’s Dockyard and English Harbour, a buzzing area of Antigua with a variety of restaurants, bars and shops and a real community spirit. Here is the place where guests can sit with a coffee, soaking up the sunshine and the atmosphere in the day time, and then choose from a selection of fantastic restaurants in the evening. One of the most picturesque parts of Antigua, English Harbour blends history, charm and a relaxed atmosphere.
Set in 19 acres of tropical woodland, each of the 28 cabanas and suites at the property have been lovingly decorated by the property’s Italian owners. From a beachfront option to a poolside vantage point, the The Inn at English Harbour offers spacious accommodation where guests will feel truly at ease. The high ceilinged airy guestrooms are a haven of white washed walls and floating canopies, flooded with natural light and effortlessly elegant.
Set within a colonial style building, the guestrooms are a short stroll to the infinity pool and private palm-fringed beach, dotted with palm trees and hammocks and offering spectacular views all the way to Montserrat. Each suite boasts a spacious, private balcony or veranda, a quiet spot to enjoy a drink, a book or watch the sun as it sets behind the infinity pool. The beach side cabana bedrooms are the ideal option for beach lovers, with the sand coming up to the door and the soft sound of waves in the background.
The Terrace restaurant, set in the gardens next to the original stone house of the property, provides an idyllic setting for an evening meal under the stars, where candle light and delicious international cuisine, with a local twist, combine to provide a memorable experience in one of the finest restaurants in Antigua. The relaxed Reef Restaurant, set on the pristine white sands of the private beach, is a laid-back day time option, for a healthy breakfast, traditional Caribbean lunch, a coconut or a few cocktails.
If guests can bear to pry themselves away from the infinity pool and beach, the two tennis courts in the gardens of The Inn at English Harbour are the place for a couple of games. Guests can then relax in the boutique spa, a peaceful sanctuary in which to re-energise with a variety of treatments in a tranquil setting. Here, massage lovers will enjoy herbal teas from the property’s very own spa garden, with natural treatments created by the resident spa expert, who mixes herbs, flowers and essential oils to create a range of spa treatments.
The private jetty at The Inn is the best place to enjoy the tropical fish of the Caribbean with a spot of snorkelling, whereas a kayaking trip from here allows guests to explore the bays nearby.
