The Inn at English Harbour – Antigua
With just 29 rooms and suites, the Italian family owned and managed Inn at English Harbour is perfect for those looking to ‘step off’ for a few days, but who also want to dine out, go on a for drink but not have a 40 minute taxi ride home, and where exercise is a stroll to the end of the beach and back with extensions to shady lookouts with views that include the island of Montserrat.
From the Inn’s jetty, the centre of historic Nelson’s Dockyard is just a 2 minute water taxi ride and from there a short walk leads to the centre of English Harbour with its restaurants, shops and bars. With so many good dining options so close, guests on the pre-booked dinner plan can have lunch instead of dinner at the hotel’s beachside restaurant.
The Inn has 4 Cabanas directly on the beach and a mix of Junior and Deluxe Junior suites set back around the infinity edged swimming pool and then there are the suites on the hill with their panoramic views. In addition, the Inn boasts 2 restaurants – beachside and on the hill, 2 bars, a small gym and spa, floodlit tennis and a boutique for gifts and things you forgot to pack.
Most of the guests are couples, although over Christmas and in the school holidays families with children over the age of 10 enjoy all the Inn has to offer.
