Happy New Year to one and all! Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and feel renewed and ready to embrace 2019. Christmas vacation for us this year meant a blissful getaway to Antigua with family. Having not visited the island in several years it was heartening to see how well this Caribbean island is prospering, especially considering how last year’s Hurricane Irma ravaged Barbuda its smaller sister island.
Spending Christmas in St John, Antigua’s capital with the family we indulged in an extravagant feast fit for Royalty, then decamped a couple of days later to the luxurious Blue Waters Resort & Spa. Being the only resort on the northwest coast’s Soldier’s Bay, Blue Waters is completely secluded, adding to its cachet of exclusivity.
The recently renovated rooms and villas are a sophisticated palette of pale grays, off whites, with pops of turquoise. The interior design maintains its signature traditional colonial aesthetic and relaxed beachy vibe. With a welcoming staff and warm informal atmosphere it’s become our go-to hotel whenever we visit.
