What: A 300-acre private island retreat comprised of 40 suites and 11 villas.

Where: Hidden away on St. John, one of a collection of islands off Antigua in the West Indies.

Why: As it’s accessible only by boat, arriving at Jumby Bay really feels like you’re eschewing stress and arriving at a resort where serenity reigns supreme. Decorated in a sophisticated and elegant manner, with an emphasis on the luxurious, the villas and suites perfectly exemplify zones of utter indulgence. In common with other Rosewood resorts, Jumby boasts a staff to whom pampering is second nature, and guests can expect only first class service. Three white sand beaches surround the resort, from where visitors have the option of going sail-boarding, scuba-diving, swimming or sun tanning or on which they can enjoy a private evening meal, sampling the fusion of Caribbean and European cuisine from the excellent restaurant. An abundance of activities on hand, such as golf, island tours, croquet and a fitness center, will busy any restless soul. And the protection of the coral reef and introduction of the Hawksbill Turtle Project ensure the retention of the endangered environment for a long time to come.
