Forty acres of verdant tropical gardens and a nearly mile-long sweep of white beach make Galley Bay—set on Antigua’s westerly Five Islands peninsula—feel like a true oasis.

Spread across 100 acres of a peninsula on the island’s southeastern coast, this multifaceted resort’s rooms and villas are done in an airy, tropical style—wicker furnishings, terracotta tile floors, colorful prints and fabrics.

The recently redone Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort, situated on a private 300-acre island 10 minutes by boat from Antigua, is still the standard-bearer of Caribbean luxury. Following a $28 million reconstruction, 28 new suites have ocean views and outdoor bathtubs in lush private courtyards.

The 25 sea-facing cottages, which spread from the unspoiled beachfront to the fertile hillside, are outfitted with sustainably harvested wood, outdoor showers, freestanding bathtubs, and canopied king-size beds fitted with bone-white Italian linens.
