It's a charming playground, infused with the atmosphere of an elegant house party, new arrivals are quickly seduced by languid pace of life at Jumby Bay Island. A morning dip in the sea, sunbathing at noon, or a game of croquet in the afternoon are accompanied only by the serene sounds of nature. On an island without cars, guests move about easily in golf carts and bicycles along the island's palm-shaded paths.

The Estate House - The fine-dining focal point of Jumby Bay, The Estate House is a stylish Spanish Colonial plantation house on the western edge of the island. Set overlooking the sea and the lights of Antigua and surrounded by a fragrant garden of palm trees, hibiscus and wild orchids, the classic colonial house (c. 1830) was once the centerpiece of the island sugar plantation. Now it's a sanctuary of civilized dining highlighted by romantic sophistication and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. The Mediterranean-inspired menu of The Estate House features selections of short courses and entrées with bold flavors. The Estate House serves dinner and afternoon tea Monday-Saturday. The Estate Bar is open Monday-Saturday. A new Wine Room is also available for private dining.
The Verandah Restaurant And Kitchen - More than a restaurant and bar, The Verandah is the crossroads of Jumby Bay Island. Everything passes through The Verandah, where exciting enhancements—a new bar, expanded boutique, concierge area, enhanced dining and lounge areas, and a residential-style kitchen with a unique wood-burning oven—create welcoming culinary experiences.
Set next to the sparkling sea, the open-air restaurant welcomes diners amid cool sea breezes. Stylish without being pretentious, the sun-filled setting is splendid for breakfast, lunch and dinner served daily in light and modern style. In the afternoon and evening, toes-in-the-sand elegance reigns as guests indulge "Carib-Pean" cuisine of freshly caught seafood, hearth-baked specialties, grilled lobsters, select prime and aged steaks, rotisserie chicken and fruit-infused tarts, mousses, custards and cookies. Meals are served on the beautiful white sand beach surrounded by the soft glow of torches in the evening light.
Back inside, the traditional Caribbean plantation style of the Verandah Restaurant is highlighted with newly designed bar and lounge areas facing the sea. An air of casual beach chic pervades, grounded in tile flooring of various designs. The food is equally relaxed, especially at lunch with a light and healthful menu featuring appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pastas and pizzas. An in-house butcher takes things over-the-top with carefully selected meats from an artisanal vendor, aged to perfection in special coolers and hand cut to order. Meanwhile, participants of cooking classes and select dining events can look forward to an artfully presented "market display" of produce and other products, the better to whet appetites for the freshness to come.
The Pool Grille - Swimmers and sun worshipers can beat the tropical heat with healthy selections from the new Pool Grille. Nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the dramatic oceanfront infinity pool, The Pool Grille offers light, healthy and casual breakfast and lunch fare, light snacks and cooling treats, and an array of refreshing cocktails, mocktails, smoothies, fruit juices and teas. During high season, The Pool Grille is also open in the evenings for family-style dining, with simple but satisfying dinner selections and desserts served platter-style under the stars. During off-season, The Pool Grille's terrace is a popular venue for weddings.
The Beach Bar - A traditional open bungalow located midway down the shoreline on Jumby Bay Beach, The Beach Bar is the center of beach service. Here guests find cocktails, cold water and fresh towels at the ready. A raised hand brings a frosty glass of water, delicious daiquiri or tray bearing a selection of freshly made fruit sorbet.
