Hodges Bay

Antigua, Caribbean

The hotel

Lapping it up in the true ‘lap’ of luxury, Hodges Bay is a world away from the cookie cutter beach hotels that crop up around the Caribbean. Designed to be different, every element of this 9-acre estate is refined and relaxing. Its gloriously green gardens are matched by whiter-than-white sands, its crisp contemporary architecture cocoons upscale interiors, and its features are beyond high-end. There are two swimming pools — including an adult-only infinity pool overlooking the bay, surrounded by plush sun-loungers and poolside cabanas, the ultimate way to catch some Caribbean rays and relax in an adult-only oasis. Not forgetting the beach and pool Ambassador Service of course, with dedicated staff on hand to tend to your every whim. Dining here is a true delight with a choice of three restaurants including the Caribbean’s first signature restaurant by world-renowned celebrity chef Edward Lee. Plus there are five inviting bars to try including a high-end rum bar with a dedicated sommelier, guaranteed to serve a true taste of Antigua.

Hodges Bay was just beautiful! We stayed in a 4 bedroom villa facing the ocean. Property is only a few years old. Very clean. Felt very Covid 19 safe as staff all wore masks and hand sanitizer everywhere! There were zero Covid cases when we arrived. Staff were super friendly. Loved our pool guy Tango and our Butler Will. Everyone was extremely accommodating. Restaurants in property were excellent. It was really nice that they allowed you to order from Black Sails menu while eating downstairs at White Sands. Must order the Wings, coconut shrimp and club sandwich. All yummy! Had a great day arranged by our butler on private island Prickly Pear across from resort. Snorkeled & had a prepared picnic lunch. Would definitely revisit. Highly recommend. Owners Jeff and Sarah are awesome! Read less

I want to thank Celia Morgan for helping me plan such a beautiful trip to celebrate my anniversary. We had a complimentary bottle of champagne & a cake when we arrived & she helped plan a beautiful decoration for after dinner as a surprise in our room. Highly recommend. Read less

Hodges Bay was a beautiful pleasant surprise. We were looking for a hotel for a few nights upon arrival on the American flight that arrives after 11pm that was neat the airport. This property is only a 10 minute ride. It is fairly new, I believe opening in 2018. The rooms are beautiful and the grounds very lovely. Due to Covid and arriving the 2nd week of the island reopening, there was a very low occupancy, so there was only 1 restaurant open. Food was wonderful and service was impeccable also. it is not an all-inclusive, for those of you that do not like them, like myself, but they do offer meal plans. The beach is small and quiet, but with only 79 units, it is the perfect size. They were great with their Covid restrictions and everyone had their masks on. I would for sure return once this Covid think is said and done to get the full effect of such a lovely smaller resort. Read less

I flew into Antigua the beginning of February 2020 and was picked up by the Resort's shuttle service who was already waiting for me at the airport. This was my first time to Antigua and after a long day of travel, the short 10 minute drive to the Resort was a welcomed euphoric feeling. Upon arriving at the Resort, several very friendly staff members took care of my luggage as well as checking me into my room while I walked straight to the private beach and sipped on a drink and enjoyed the sun. Before I had a chance to sit down on a beach lounger, staff members had already walked over to cover the chair with a comfy lounge towel and provided me with extra beach towels and ice water. Minutes later, I was brought my room key and escorted to my room. The room was spectacular and my luggage was already there, the view from the room and balcony was breathtaking day and night of the private beach and Caribbean water. Blackout shades and the most comfortable bed along with a rain head shower and exclusive organic toiletries, turn down service, water bottles and coffee pods brought every day and night by Resort staff were an added bonus to an already amazing experience. I ate at every restaurant in the Resort and always had the best service 5* and amazing 5* food. Private cabanas and lounge couches in the family pool looked like a nice place for families with kids....since I left my kids at home, I made myself comfortable at the adult only pool that overlooked the Caribbean and conveniently had a swim up bar. By my second day, most of the Resort staff greeted me by my first name. The most accommodating staff I have ever experienced at any Resort. The Resort had been recently remodeled and had a contemporary and comfortable look, feel and energy. All positive vibes from staff and guests. Added extras-Sunday Funday at the adult pool with live dj, live music at night at The Black Sails Lounge, Antiguan music and fire throwing performances, free use of all water sports equipment, daily menu of activities and exercise classes offered and if you are into celebrities, don't be shocked to find yourself sitting next to one while you eat or lay by the pool. During my stay there, film crews and stars stayed at the Resort while they filmed episodes for an upcoming season of a reality tv show. I have already planned my next trip back now that travel restrictions have lifted. This is an awesome Resort, location and food is great, staff and Resort grounds amazing and you are treated like a star. Read less
