Reachable only by boat, and with no cars in sight, Jumby Bay is a world unto itself. This private island of white-powdered beaches and winding bicycle paths is a one-of-a-kind hideaway known, quite simply, as the finest resort in the Caribbean. Since its discovery by Christopher Columbus in 1493, this isolated island of elemental beauty has enchanted seafarers, naturalists, and romantics. Today it is known as Jumby Bay, a retreat of rarefied yet relaxed luxury that’s just a twelve-minute boat ride from the coast of Antigua and yet worlds away from the crowds of the Caribbean.

The entire spa experience — which embraces indigenous healing traditions — is characterized by Rosewood’s guiding philosophy, A Sense of Place.
