Verandah Resort & Spa All-Inclusive Adult Resort Antigua
The biggest downside is its semi-secluded location (nowhere is really too far away in Antigua) on the island- which may or may not be an issue.
Situated across some of Antigua's finest coastal nature, with nice beaches nearby and having its own 2 beaches onsite.
The Verandah Resort and Spa is located east side next to calm clear Caribbean waters. Ideal for couples to escape for a week or two, the Verandah has everything you need. An all-inclusive plan helps you relax and enjoy a great romantic stay.
Get me to the beach...
It's nice leaving the wallet, keys, and mobile phone (maybe not the mobile) and wriggling your toes in the sand starting your vacation trying to slow down. The Verandah Beach sits on 2 beaches, the rasta beach and the main beach - you are never far from a bite to eat and a drink to sip. The water is ideal for snorkelling in safety too.
180 vaulted ceiling suites or one or two-bedroom sizes provide the resort's main accommodations. With Caribbean-influenced interior decor, and light and airy colours you will feel at ease. The one-bedroom suites (duplex) can accommodate 4 adults. Larger families might like a two-bedroom suite. Expect all the trappings of a mid to luxury resort. Single suites come with a king-sized bed and queen sleeper sofa. This is not a resort with accommodation blocks, the 180 suites are split in typical cottage-style constructions adding to the charm.
Also available are 2 bedroom villas with plunge pool.
All Suites come equipped with LCD satellite TV, air-con, ceiling fans, in-room safes, direct-dial telephones, mini refrigerators, microwaves, hairdryers, coffeemakers, irons, ironing boards (There is a dress code for many of the restaurants). The different suite categories are grouped by view: Superior Waterfront, Waterfront, Waterview and Hillside. Waterfront suites have views over the turquoise horizon.
Food and Drink
You won't get bored dining in one of the four restaurants or the informal beach grill. The main Seabreeze restaurant (breakfast lunch and dinner) accommodates themed international cuisine as a buffet.
Nicole's Restaurant (reservation required) is fine dining and requires a surcharge of $40 per person. Fantastic Italian and French dishes await your buds.
Enjoy Caribbean-themed food at The Buccaneer a la carte, perfect for all. Two other less formal spots are left to sample. The Beach Bar and Grill and the Wadadli Snack Shack allow you to enjoy food and drink right by the shore while you enjoy the beach.
Inside the resort grounds, there is so much to do it might be wise to have some form of a plan! With activities in and out of the water and costing varying degrees of energy (easily replaced by rum punch) required there is something to suit everyone.
Some of the activities at the Verandah include:
- Hobie Cat - we can get you sailing within a day for beginners!
- Tennis - improve your serve or volley.
- Pedalo or Kayak - the waters are excellent.
- snorkelling - enjoy the colours of tropical fish in the excellent bay
- Crazy Golf
- Giant Chess
