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.

We spent a week at Hodges Bay during a 3 week stay in Antigua. Although we really enjoyed the whole island, our stay at Hodges Bay was definitely the highlight. It would be easy to say this was because of the outstanding accommodations, quirky decor, and vibrant ambiance, but that wouldn’t tell the whole story. The people at Hodges Bay were engaged and committed to making our stay the best possible experience they could. 5 minutes at the resort and you could appreciate the expense put into making the resort unique and special, but a week with the people made us appreciate the culture that the owners, Jeff and Sarah, have created. This resort will thrill and excite you. And if you get a chance to visit Prickly Pear Island while at Hodges Bay, your Caribbean adventure will be complete. Read less

From the amazing staff, to the excursions, to the location itself, it is truly a little slice of paradise. We would highly recommend to anyone who loves to be pampered all the while feeling like you have found a true home away from home. Spa is top notch, food is delectable (especially NaCl), decor and panoramic views are both unique and picture worthy (truly a way to make those at home jealous), and the energy of the staff and owners, priceless. Already booked our next trip! Read less

Hodges Bay is the nicest resort we’ve ever stayed at. We shared an amazing villa with another couple.

Hodges Bay is the nicest resort we’ve ever stayed at. We shared an amazing villa with another couple. The full kitchen and living room, private hot tub and expansive deck/balconies meant we were tempted to spend most of our time there. But the two beautiful pools, beach, and restaurants kept enticing us out. The gym is fully equipped with high-end machines, and our friend highly recommended the spa. We loved having access to the resort’s private island, Prickly Pear, where we took amazing pictures on the pristine white sand beach. We will definitely be back with more friends next year! Read less

Great place to go to and get away from it all. Staff was very kind and helpful. The buffet food was very good. I would definitely recommend this place to others and plan on going back in the near future.

This was our third trip to Antigua, which is one of my favorite places on the planet. We had the pleasure of staying in a 2 bedroom with kitchen. The place is gorgeous. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable and the butlers really responsive. The decor in the lobby main building is cool and funky! 2 pools were in great condition and one had a swim up bar. BONUS! We were able to go to the small island, prickly pear and we were able to have some quiet moments with the amazing turquoise water. Early in our week the staff knew our names and what we liked to drink with our meals . Lots of choices to eat since we didn't want to cook. The fisherman's platter was one of my favorites! A special shout out to Shirlene who took great care of us and Tango who never seemed to stop moving. Read less
