Located on a secluded 100-acre peninsula on the south-eastern coast of Antigua, St James Club is Antigua’s most famous address. It features two stunning white sand beaches, one boasting the Atlantic Ocean and the other the Caribbean Sea. St James’s Club is great for those looking for an all-inclusive retreat surrounded by lush gardens and beautiful beaches.

As part of my work trip to Antigua, I was lucky enough to stay at St James’s Club for a couple of nights and enjoy all the inclusive benefits that guests have access to.

Rooms

I stayed in one of the new Royal Suites, Room 217 to be precise. My room was incredible, it is the second highest category of room at St James’s Club and this definitely showed. The suite was large with a sunken living room and boasted incredible waterfront views of Mamora Bay Beach from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The décor was tasteful with the king-size bed being really soft and comfortable. The bathroom was one of the highlights as the bathtub was enormous and filled up surprisingly quick. There were two separate showers, one full size and the other ¾ size for those who didn’t want to get their hair wet.

Dining

St James Club has five restaurants and four bars. Even though my stay here was short I was able to enjoy the cuisine and dining experiences from some of the restaurants. For breakfast I ate at The Rainbow Garden, which offered an international buffet breakfast in a colonial-Caribbean garden setting. The breakfast buffet offered a great range of food, both cooked and continental.

For lunch I ate at Coco’s which is a casual dining restaurant serving a selection of salads, soups, burgers and pastas all day. The burger and chips here was delicious and they served it in a fryer-like tray which I thought was quite unique and an added touch to the casual feel. Coco’s also offered a la carte breakfast which I also ate at, they have a continental buffet selection as well as cooked to order food.

For dinner, I ate at Piccolo Mondo’s which is the resort’s signature fine dining restaurant situated on a hill overlooking the Mamora Bay and the resort. The food here was divine and the service was exceptional, paired with the partial open-air feel with the sounds of the tree frogs for ambiance.

The other restaurant is the Beach Bar & Grill which was closed for refurbishment when I visited.

Facilities

St James Club features six swimming pools, two of which are adults only pools for Royal Suite guests. At Mamora Bay Beach there are an abundance of complimentary non-motorised water sports. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to partake in any, but they looked great and the Bay was always so calm being on the Caribbean side. Water sports included kayaking, windsurfing, Hobie-cats, snorkelling, paddle boarding as well as water hammocks. At Coco Beach there is a more relaxed feel about it and it tends to be the quieter beach.

What Our Customers Say

A Luxury Travel agents service without compare
San Francisco

Had to book a last minute flight to San Francisco, was all sorted quick and easy over the phone. Top class booking service.

Carla

Cape town

I was arranging a trip to South African and having to keep getting new prices for changing dates and schedules but Michael was always helpful and very professional. Also being able to pay a low deposit with the balance due in 6 months and the ability to phone up and pay off bits at a time was fab and allowed us to upgrade, downside there was a small difference in the cost of the flight for this privilege but for us it was worth it (circa £150 on a £4200 booking).

Sandra Everett

Dubai

This was such an easy and painless way to book our trip. I spoke to Richard at YourTravel and he was able to save us £450 on business class flights to Dubai. Before speaking to him we were just going to book online as usual. But after today’s call to YourTravel and the great service, they have gained themselves a customer for life.
