In the heart of the Caribbean are two islands with one soul: Antigua and Barbuda. Separated by only a few miles, the islands share unbeatable sailing waters, Neolithic caves, and historical abandoned forts. Antigua is the wild child, while her sister, Barbuda, remains calm and relaxed. Whether you’re looking to indulge in tropical silence, or dance all night long to the sound of the Caribbean drums, these twins have everything to appease your island appetite.
The islands won the 2015 World Travel Award for the “Caribbean’s Most Romantic Destination,” so if you’re looking for a honeymoon or an anniversary getaway this season, then look no further. On the northern coast of Antigua, you’ll find Jumby “Long” Island, right in the middle of the twins.
Soak up every possible bit of Antiguan luxury at Jumby Bay, a Rosewood Resort. With all sorts of water and land sports, along with the Sense spa and three different dining venues, Jumby Bay is a popular choice for couples both young and old. Each cottage, uniquely octagonal in shape, features an outdoor shower and a four-poster bed, giving the suite a regal and romantic ambiance for lovers. Visit Antigua and Barbuda, “where the beach is just the beginning.”
Every season should be celebrated with a little quality time spent catering to yourself and your loved ones. Sometimes, this is best achieved by putting away all of the decorations, packing a bag, and heading for the sun. Make this holiday season your season for escaping the norm, and dive into paradise. The islands are waiting!
