WINTER IS COMING. It’s that time of year again when those of us in cooler climes spend the morning commute negotiating slippery snow slush and dreaming of escaping to warm weather destinations.
There are a fair few hotels in the world to choose from, but few as fantastic as this. Nestled just two miles north of Antigua lays one of the most remarkable Caribbean resorts, Jumby Bay – a stunning 300-acre private enclave that goes above and beyond the call of luxury.
Not surprisingly then, it’s a favorite with the A-list elite – Paul McCartney, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and Oprah have all sought sandy solitude here.
Paradise found: Jumby Bay is the last word in Caribbean luxury
After touching down in Antigua from New York I was whisked away on a five-minute car ride to the Jumby Bay dock where I boarded a boat bound for the idyllic island just a short and scenic ride away.
From the moment you arrive and take in the lush tropical lawns that roll down to the somewhat deserted, palm-dotted pristine beaches, you know you’ve found a remote hideaway, but with five-star services.

A-list clientele: Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey are just two of Jumby’s famous guests
There are no cars on the island – just bicycles and golf carts – it’s a self-contained haven and really does have everything you need…
