Jumby On My Mind

Since I am obsessed with resort hotel rooms, I am always trying to copy some aspect of them in my own house.

One of my favorite resorts has to be Jumby Bay Resort.

Jumby Bay is located on a small island off the North Coast of Antigua and it has everything you would need to relax.

We stayed there about 8 years ago and I will show you what it looked like then.

Come on a tour with me:

Welcome!

This is the entrance to the Estate House where we had many wonderful dinners.  As you can see, the architecture was amazing!

This is the entrance to our “Courtyard Suite”.

Here we are inside – very traditional dark wood with light walls.  Like I said, these pictures were taken 8 years ago and the rooms have a changed a lot since then!  I must say, I still love the contrast and the classic Caribbean feel to the space.

Very neutral and calming.

As part of the Courtyard Suite, there were two showers.  This is the outside “courtyard” area with the 2nd shower (and tub).

Yes, I was quite happy to be there!

This is our suite from the outside.

As you can see, it was very dry that week so the grass wasn’t doing very well!

Here is the view from our suite.

Needless to say, the beach was pretty amazing.

We felt like we had the place to ourselves.

In fact, the island consists of just this resort and some very exclusive private homes.

That’s Antigua in the background.

And here I am, trying to sleep.  At that time, I was just 6 weeks pregnant.

So I did a lot of sleeping!

Gorgeous views everywhere.

This is what the lounge area looked like when we stayed there.  Over the years, it has obviously changed a lot.

I love this picture of the bikes with my favorite color combination of blue and bright pink.  They were the only way to get around the resort.

Really, I should blow this photo up and frame it!

I hope you enjoyed touring Jumby Bay.

Like I said, since my stay there, a lot has changed over the years.  Since then , they have added an infinity pool and updated and brightened the rooms.

Apparently, the Courtyard Suites are now known as the Beachside Suites.

You can see more of the resort here – Jumby Bay Resort.

You will be blown away at how even MORE beautiful the resort has become!

Have you been to Jumby Bay or any resorts in Antigua?

    What a gorgeous place and it makes me want to go back to a resort like that so badly. We used to travel a lot before this darn economy thing happened. We have been on cruises and to Hawaii three times and I just love the color of the water in these beautiful places. Someday I hope we can go again. Thanks for sharing this beutiful place.

    I just love the name Jumby Bay and the views are spectacular! I'd never want to leave and living in a hot, humid environment I know full well how wonderful an outdoor shower is to have close by!

    I loved your photos. I like resort photos and this is a good idea posting ones that you took on previous vacations.
