A handful of lucky guest are the first to experience the new Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort after the resort closed in June of 2008 for a 28 million dollar renovation and expansion.
Jumby Bay Resort officially re-opened on December 1, to guests who had booked months in advance for the opportunity to be the first to discover all that’s new and fabulous at this favorite award-winning Caribbean resort.
Here are just a few of the new amenities these first guests are enjoying during their stay at this exclusive private island paradise in the West Indies.
· Sense, A Rosewood Spa®: After years of providing, in-room massage treatments, Jumby Bay unveils its first stand-alone spa, inspired by the island’s sugar mill ruin. This open-air sanctuary presents signature treatments, such as the Rumba Scrub and Massage, before dreamy ocean views. Five personal spa suites, including a Duet suite, have individual showers and relaxation terraces.
· Newly Built Suites and Fully Enhanced Accommodations: Jumby Bay has enhanced its 40 guest rooms including 28 newly built and 12 updated suites. Steps from the beach, each captures the spirit of a tropical hideaway in British Colonial style, with al fresco rain showers and soaking tubs amid private gardens.
· New Executive Chef: Newly appointed Executive Chef Juan Pablo Loza has arrived from sister property Las Ventanas Al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort in Los Cabos. Chef Loza is combining his mastery of Mexican and Spanish cuisine with Antiguan flare using locally grown spices, produce, and fresh seafood. This new sense of culinary creativity is reflected in signature dishes such as Lamb Mojito, inspired by the classic cocktail, and the launch of a Signature Burger Menu.
· New Resort Dining Experiences:
- More than a restaurant and bar, The Verandah is the crossroads of Jumby Bay Island – the unofficial clubhouse and hub of the resort. The newly built Verandah Restaurant is an inspired setting for relaxed-yet-elegant dining. Jumby Bay Culinary Experiences, a schedule of hands-on gastronomic classes, will be led by Chef Loza and local Antiguan Chefs in the new display kitchen. The new Verandah Bar and accompanying lounge areas face the sea, creating an air of casual beach chic under cooling ceiling fans.
· Estate Homes: Two new Estate Homes valued at $22 million apiece are distinctively designed to complement the Caribbean style of the resort, with unique pools, state-of-the-art kitchens, and use of resort services and amenities included.
Jumby Bay’s new all-inclusive room rates start at $1,150 a night.
