The Inn At English Harbour, Antigua
By Louise Gray, Travel Adviser
“My stay at The Inn at English Harbour in Antigua was absolutely made by the amazing staff there, who really enhance the atmosphere to make it a warm and friendly home away from home, where you’ll never want to leave. I absolutely loved the eclectic décor in the Suites, with gorgeous mahogany floors and spacious terraces that are perfect for sunbathing with some privacy. Antigua has such a rich history and culture and the Inn is amazing at putting together really interesting outings for you to get under the skin of the local surroundings, so be sure to make the most of this on your trip. One of my favourite things here that I’d definitely recommend is dining out on the terrace, looking out at the yachts swaying in the harbour, with lush green hills all around the bay – the views are superb and the setting is so peaceful. Plus, the chef’s amazing dishes all incorporate ingredients grown in The Inn’s own organic garden, so you know everything is super fresh. This is one of the most relaxing places to stay on the island, or indeed, in the Caribbean. They even offer guests spiritual and meditation sessions with an expert, so that you can really relax in this serene environment.”
