Rosewood Jumby Bay
Accessible only by boat, Jumby Bay, whose name is derived from the Antiguan word “Jumbie” meaning playful spirit, brings the quintessential “private island dream” to life.
The Rosewood Jumby Bay resort embraces this heritage by offering a luxury experience with a touch of whimsical abandon; open air spas and restaurants both just steps from the sugar-sand beach, vaulted ceilings, private al fresco baths, beachside cocktail waiters, and a weekly White Night beach party (where all party goers don the honorary hue) punctuate the experience.
Jumby Bay is a private island that is currently owned entirely by its few dozen residents. Since it was discovered in 1493 by Columbus, its various owners have always ensured that the natural condition of the 300 acre island has been largely undisturbed. On Jumby Bay, the natural sights and sounds steal the spotlight. Although many are content to simply enjoy the unadulterated song of waves on the shoreline, the resort also offers tennis, golf, and a variety of water activities including sailing, kiteboarding, snorkeling, and diving. For visitors who want to learn more about the flora and fauna of Jumby Bay and the other islands of Antigua, Jumby Bay offers boats where participants can learn about Jumby Bay’s Turtle Project, Maiden Island’s reef ball system, and Guiana Island’s Mangroves.
