Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by Vancouver-based property development company, Replay Destinations, to manage Rosewood Half Moon Bay in Antigua, which will open in 2023 in the Caribbean’s West Indies. The resort will be situated on 132 spectacular oceanfront acres along Half Moon Bay, which is internationally lauded as one of the world’s most spectacular beaches. The former Half Moon Bay Hotel was established in the 1950’s, and for decades was a sought-after vacation destination and resort playground for the international jet set.
A serene oasis for discerning travelers, the resort will feature 47 pavilion-style suites, each with breath-taking ocean views and thoughtful amenities finely tuned to the desires of today’s affluential explorer, including private infinity plunge pools, hammocks, open-air baths and showers and live orchid walls in each bathroom. The resort will also offer an exclusive residential component comprised of oceanfront and oceanview villas, and 13 extraordinary estate home parcels.
Set to become one of the most exciting destinations to dine and drink in the Caribbean, Rosewood Half Moon Bay will include several innovative dining and lounge concepts. Situated on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the resort’s social nexus, the signature lounge, will be inspired by the flavors, colors, and culture of the West Indies. Artisanal Caribbean cocktails and small plates accompanied by live reggae and ska music will set the atmosphere for a lively night out.
The resort will also feature a pool grill and beach bar, as well as an on-site organic farm, which will provide fresh ingredients for seasonal fare year-around.
Additional property amenities will include two pools, one for adults and one for families, a fitness center, and tennis courts. Additionally, Sense, a Rosewood Spa, will offer an indulgent experience with six signature treatment rooms and locally inspired treatments.
