From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

Down a long dirt road, this secluded resort perches between a steep slope and a small bay. Its 25 suites—each a spacious contemporary cottage of dark wood and white linens—are tucked into lush foliage rich with birdlife and come with an outdoor shower and daybeds, as well as a flat-screen TV, an iPod docking station, and Wi-Fi; ceiling fans twirl above mosquito-netted beds. All this is the ideal setting in which to decompress fully while lounging by your plunge pool with a glass of wine from the restaurant's well-chosen cellar. The friendly staff ferry guests up and down the hillside in golf carts. A few antique Chinese tea chests, an exhibit of original black-and-white photographs of Bob Marley, and low-slung furnishings combine to give the reception area a laid-back chic. With its commitment to sophistication and natural beauty, Hermitage Bay aims to join the properties at the top of the market in Antigua—and is priced accordingly. What you're paying for here is peacefulness, supremely relaxing accommodations, better than decent food, a wonderful swimming beach, and an understated yet pampering spa.
