The hotel

Lapping it up in the true ‘lap’ of luxury, Hodges Bay Resort & Spa 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, from polishing your sunglasses to anticipating your need for another iced tropical drink. The beach is made even better with the non-motorised water sports on offer. Little guests get to feel like VIPs too with their Flying Fish Kids Club and Connect Teens Lounge. And the five bars here include that island must, a rum bar with its own Sommelier to guarantee you a true taste of Antigua.

Current stay underway. Amazing location. Fantastic accommodations. Service has been top notch. Highly recommend the 4 bedroom villa. It’s big enough for 8 people with two master king suites, one queen suite and one room with two twin beds and one bath. We will update on the restaurants as we go!

Stunning resort, breathtaking views - we stayed at the largest apartment at the end which is enormous and gorgeous - the floor to ceiling wrap around view of the sea from my bedroom is hard to beat. The pools and restaurants are amazing - cannot recommend highly enough and cannot wait to return

This is the place to stay in Antigua. The staff is absolutely lovely, the food is great, and you can’t beat the views. You will not be disappointed taking a leap of faith on a new hotel... everything was perfect and I could not have had a better time for our 5 night stay. Every recommendation from the hotel of what to do on the island was perfect. This is a little slice of heaven sitting beach side. Both pools and the beach are relaxing and have extremely comfy chairs. You get a nice breeze and have options of sun or shade all day. The management and owners are floating around and happy to chat with guests and ask about the property and your stay. It makes the entire place feel family owned and your visit very personal. The best advice....Eat the conch fritters and save the scotch bonnet sauce to dip the rest of your meal in!!! Also, our flight was delayed very late when we were leaving. The hotel was nice enough to get us a late check out and put us in another room to shower and get ready for our travels. It made an already wonderful experience all the more lovely. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Hodges for a perfect vacation :) And for the comparison, our favorite hotels include the Viceroy in Anguilla (now the Four Seasons) and Kimpton Seafire in Cayman. Hodges earns its place in this category!! Read less

Our week at the Hodges Bay Resort was fantastic and we were sad to leave. The hotel is new which only added to our enjoyment. Everything is so lovely. We had a two bedroom ocean front suite and it was gorgeous. The staff are amazing. We were shown around on arrival by Jonathan who is a star as are Romane, Shilagh and Elroy along with so many others. Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and to look after you. The views are out of this world. The sea is so many shades of blue that you can look at it for hours. The food is great. Breakfast is a feast if that’s what you want. The managers are often on hand so that if there ever was a problem you could talk to them but there never was. Still it was good to be able to chat to them. Holidays are precious time and this one was one of the best. We hope that we can return one day. Read less

This is a gorgeous, upscale, modern resort hidden away on its own little private beach on the north side of the island. If you want privacy and exclusivity, you will find it here.

This is a gorgeous, upscale, modern resort hidden away on its own little private beach on the north side of the island. If you want privacy and exclusivity, you will find it here. This is not "Sandals" (which we think is ok, but like a Carnival Cruise). This is far more elegant and exclusive feeling than that. The decor is simple, clean and modern with natural elements throughout, which we thought was beautiful. We stayed in 3106, a two`bedroom oceanfront villa with its own kitchen. It was just steps from the "adults only" pool and bar, which overlooked the ocean. There is another larger pool that welcomes children and families, both were very nice, elegantly appointed and in pristine condition. The service was outstanding. We had a butler service included with our room and they all were incredibly warm, easy`going and really went out of their way to meet our needs. The front desk staff and restaurant staff soon remembered our names, and went out of their way to chat with us, which made the experience really memorable. I really cannot say enough good things about the caring people they had working there. All were lovely and genuinely good people to be around. We did get a chance to meet the owners of the resort, and they were so friendly and easy to like. Being a newly opened resort, there were a couple of suggestions we made to them, and they listened and implemented everything we mentioned. They even invited us to join them for an evening off site, that is how warm everyone was to us. The restaurants were all excellent. They have several on site. The owners told us they had hired a professional gourmet chef and we were not disappointed. The dinners were beautifully plated, and the scallops were absolutely delicious, my favorite meal we had on the island. Oh, I did want to mention my massage at the spa. I wish i remembered who my massage therapist was so i could thank her, because it was the BEST massage I have EVER had. And we get spa appointments everywhere I travel. So for me to say that is kind of a big deal. :) She was just wonderful and the room had ocean views. As it is a newly opened resort, there are just a few little things not quite completed, but I am certain this is on its way to being THE place to stay in Antigua. Special thanks to Jeff and Sara for their hospitality, as well as our butler Jonathan (who effortlessly made things happen), and the sweet girl that worked in the restaurant who gave me a darling fridge magnet for my birthday. I was touched by her generosity and thoughtfulness. Read less
