Alexandra is here to help give you the inside track.

Following a major overhaul, Jumby Bay Island is now at the top of the leader board of idyllic Caribbean escapes. There are 40 colonial yet contemporary rooms and suites spread across the 300-acre private island, each allowing for complete privacy. There are also 16 villas and 18 Estate Homes, perfect for families and larger groups. All rooms are complete with iPod docs, complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen TV's and Nespresso machines. Resort bicycles are also at guest's disposal for getting around the island.

The facilities and activities on offer are second to none. The three beaches provide endless opportunities, from a range of watersports to pure and simple sun-bathing. Jumby Bay beach is on the Caribbean Sea, and is the image of picture postcard perfection with its white sand, sapphire waters and unperturbed views out to mainland Antigua. Pasture Bay Beach is on the Atlantic coast, and is an isolated and undeveloped beach, home to the endangered Hawksbill Turtle.

Sense, Jumby Bay Island's spa, is an open-air sanctuary built to embrace the hotel's surroundings and offers a range of up to date treatments. There are also 2 swimming pools, tennis courts and a fantastic kid's club.

The dining options at this all-inclusive resort are endless and superb. The four restaurants range from fine dining at The Estate House, to The Pool Grille for quick fix food and refreshing cocktails.

Why we love it
