Jumby On My Mind

I am obsessed with resort hotel rooms and
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.
  It has everything you would need to relax.

We stayed there about 8 years ago.
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.
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!



Very neutral and calming.

The room had 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.


It was very dry that week so the grass wasn't doing very well!

Here is the view from our suite.

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.
I was just 6 weeks pregnant on this trip...
So I did a lot of sleeping!

Gorgeous views everywhere.

This is what the lounge area looked like when we stayed there.
It has changed a bit since then!

I love this picture of the bikes.
They were the only way to get around the resort...
and my favorite color combination of blue and bright pink!
I should blow this up and frame it!

I hope you enjoyed touring Jumby Bay.
Like I said, since my stay there, a lot has changed!
They have added an infinity pool
and updated and brightened the rooms.

Here is a glimpse of what the suites look like now.

Totally different from when I stayed there!

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?  Please share!

  1. 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.

  4. 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!
