Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua to open in 2021

by Jane Kitchen | 25 Jan 2018

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by Canadian developer Replay Destinations to manage the newly-christened Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua, which will open in 2021 in the Caribbean’s West Indies.

The resort will be situated on 132 oceanfront acres along Half Moon Bay, on the site of an abandoned 1950s hotel that was a playground for the international jet set before 1995's Hurricane Luis destroyed much of the location.

Replay acquired the resort from the government in 2016, and previously engaged spa consultant Amy McDonald of Under a Tree Spa & Wellness Consulting to advise them on wellness facilities.

Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua will feature 47 pavilion-style suites, including a three-bedroom presidential suite. Each accommodation will feature private infinity plunge pools, hammocks, open-air baths and showers and live orchid walls in the bathroom.

The resort will include a Sense, a Rosewood Spa, which will offer locally inspired treatments in six signature treatment rooms.

The property will also include a fitness centre, tennis courts and two pools – one for adults and one for families. An on-site organic farm will provide fresh ingredients for seasonal fare year-around.

Located adjacent to a 27-acre national park, Rosewood Half Moon Bay Antigua will feature a curated selection of immersive activities and excursions, as well as biking and walking trails.

“With its secluded location and breathtaking beach, Half Moon Bay is one of the world’s most stunning hidden gems, and a natural destination for Rosewood’s affluential explorers,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We look forward to integrating Rosewood’s Sense of Place philosophy into Antigua’s incredible natural environment to create unforgettable experiences for our guests.”

Rosewood Half Moon Bay will join a regional network of Rosewood properties in the region, including Rosewood Baha Mar, slated to open in Spring 2018; Rosewood Bermuda, which will undergo a complete renovation to be unveiled in May 2018; and Rosewood Little Dix Bay, slated to re-open at a later date.
