ST JOHN’S, Antigua, Saturday January 27, 2018 – Another major hotel brand is coming to Antigua. But it will be another three years before it opens its doors.
Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has been appointed by Vancouver-based property development company, Replay Destinations, to manage Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua, which will open in 2021.
The resort will be situated on 132 oceanfront acres along Half Moon Bay, lauded as one of the world’s most spectacular beaches, and will feature 47 pavilion-style suites, including an ultra-luxurious, three-bedroom presidential suite. Each accommodation will feature ocean views and amenities including private infinity plunge pools, hammocks, open-air baths and showers, and live orchid walls in each bathroom.
Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua will also offer an exclusive residential component comprised of up to 50 branded oceanfront and oceanview villas, and 13 estate homes. The crown jewel property, which was previously owned by the Mellon Family, is perched on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, and is the only location of its kind in the Caribbean.
Located adjacent to a 27-acre national park, Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua will offer a selection of outdoor activities and excursions, including biking and walking trails.
The resort will also feature a pool grill and beach bar, as well as an on-site organic farm, which will provide fresh ingredients for seasonal fare year-around. Additional property amenities include two pools, one for adults and one for families, a fitness center, and tennis courts.
“With its secluded location and breath-taking beach, Half Moon Bay is one of the world’s most stunning hidden gems, and a natural destination for Rosewood’s affluential explorers,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group.
“We look forward to integrating Rosewood’s Sense of Place philosophy into Antigua’s incredible natural environment to create unforgettable experiences for our guests.”
