Fodor's Expert Review Nonsuch Bay Resort

Hughes Point, Antigua and Barbuda Fodor's Choice

This exclusive 40-acre compound's handsome, gabled Georgian-style buildings cascade down the lushly landscaped hillside to the eponymous bay, flecked with sails; aptly, aquatic activities abound, including sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. International professionals give lessons to all levels. Residences at Nonsuch Bay, or what they call the "family" section, have enormous self-catering units, situated to maximize bay views from bedrooms and oversize verandas. Cathedral ceilings and French windows provide cross breezes, and natural materials, such as beautiful hardwood floors and accents, help bring the outdoors in. Each room is fully furnished, including stunning local crafts; the latest deluxe gadgetry: Studio Becker kitchens with Viking appliances and Kohler hardware, washer/dryers, wide-screen LCD TVs; many have separate jetted tubs and rainfall showers. Additionally, four extraordinary hilltop villas offer the ultimate in luxe living. The newer Escape at Nonsuch Bay section opened in 2019, answering couple’s calls for adults-only lounging with the same majestic setting. The 40 luxurious suites with plunge pools and wet bar are ideal for romantic getaways.
