  • About this holiday

    Our opinion

    An elegant and secluded resort with a private beach and excellent water sports facilities and tuition for young guests.

    Hotel description

    In a protected cove on the east coast of Antigua, Nonsuch Bay Resort occupies an uninhabited plot with access to a rare commodity: a private beach. With indulgent lawns on a quiet cove, this is the perfect spot for families to relax and spend quality time together, surrounded by the vivid blues of the Bay’s calm waters and the lush vegetation that encircles the resort. The grounds are landscaped to create three plateaus that descend towards the beach, on which reside Caribbean colonial-style structures that curve around the arc of the bay. This arrangement serves to maximise expansive views across the bay. Accommodation options depend on the guest’s favoured proximity to the beach; the Premium Beach Suites and Cottages are mere steps from the sand, while two rows of Deluxe Suites are further back but boast undisturbed views thanks to their elevated position. Families who prefer the casual, sand-between-the-toes experience might prefer the Premium Beach Suites or Cottages, whiles those seeking peace and privacy can enjoy the Deluxe Suites further back. These two-storey structures also boast the best views. Two swimming pools are close by for relaxed, supervised play, and a third is located beside the restaurant, allowing parents to indulge while youngsters play. The restaurant is of a five-star standard, with Caribbean influenced cuisine served in a timber pagoda, with open walls presents floor-to-ceiling vistas across to Wilkies Bay. One of the biggest draws of Nonsuch Bay is the water sports facilities, which include kayaking and stand up paddle boarding, while the kite surfing and windsurfing school gives tuition to beginners. There is also a sailing school for guests as young as seven years old, which is very safe thanks to the stillness of the waters. Snorkelling adventures take place at the nearby Green Island, where the exquisite turquoise waters are accessible directly off the beach, promising vivid displays of all manner of underwater life. If you are lucky enough, you may even spot some dolphins. Nonsuch Bay is a value for money property; though it is described as four-star deluxe, its accommodation and restaurant more suit a five-star classification. It is the perfect spot for laid back holidays with excellent water sports tuition for the kids.
