Celebrities' Secret Winter Vacation Spots
Wintertime Guests: Eli Manning, Eddie Murphy, Jim Carrey, Hilary Swank.
Why They Like It: Set on a 300-acre private island two miles north of Antigua, Jumby Bay is a luxurious nature lover’s paradise, with white egrets, blue pelicans, hawksbill sea turtles, and other wildlife. The 40 suites and 12 villas (which have alfresco bathtubs) are spread throughout the property so guests feel like they have their own private hideaway. The resort just completed a $28 million overhaul, with 28 new suites (some with their own private pool), a new spa, and two new restaurants.
Celebrity Scoop: Hilary Swank found that the resort offered an idyllic respite. “We were looking to just go somewhere really secluded—sit in the sun, read a good book, get taken care of, and be truly alone,” the Oscar winner told Travel + Leisure a few years ago. “That's how we ended up at Jumby Bay.”
