The Verandah Resort & Spa, Antigua

The Verandah Resort is an eco-luxury all-inclusive resort that is perfect for families. Situated on Antigua’s northwest coastline, the resort is bordered by Devil’s Bridge National Park. It’s also only a short drive from Antigua’s V.C. Bird International Airport.

After a recent refurbishment, The Verandah Resort re-opened the day before I arrived. Here I spent my last three nights in Antigua.

Rooms

The room that I stayed in was Room 267, a Waterview Suite, the second room category. The suite was semi-detached so you had more privacy, with decking at the front and a spacious balcony at the back. From the balcony you could see Lover’s Beach with all the water sports and the greenery. The décor was minimalist which made the suite very spacious with a king-size bed that was very comfortable. The bathroom had recently been renovated so I was able to enjoy a lovely walk-in shower.

All of the one-bedroom suites have the same interior décor but vary in their views. The different Suite categories include Hillside, Waterview, Waterfront, Superior Waterfront. There are also six two-bedroom villas and six new two-bedroom plunge pool villas. The new plunge pool villas are amazing and have very different interior to all of the other categories.

Dining

The Verandah Resort has four restaurants including a beach grill. I ate dinner at the resorts’ fine dining restaurant, Nicole’s twice. The food here was gorgeous, really tasty and the service of the staff was amazing, they were always so attentive. If you are booked on the all-inclusive programme, dining at Nicole’s comes at a supplement of US$40 per person.

Another restaurant that I dined in for breakfast and dinner was at SeaBreeze, The Verandah Resort’s main restaurant and international buffet. The buffet always had a great range of food available, cold and cooked. There was also a live cooking station for omelettes in the morning and a themed speciality in the evening.

The Buccaneer was another a la carte restaurant which serves Caribbean-inspired food. Unfortunately, the restaurant wasn’t open for the short duration that I was there, as it was still undergoing renovation.

The Beach Bar & Grill I used quite a bit as it was located right next door to my room and close to the beach. The grill offered light lunches, snacks, soft drinks and alcoholic cocktails. The soft drinks were great as they had a drink dispenser where you could grab them and go. I ate here for lunch on my last day, the food was casual and very relaxed. There was also entertainment during lunch which I thought was brilliant, the talented Calypso would sing and play guitar whilst adapting his songs to suit the guests dining.

The bars and lounges served a wide variety of signature cocktails, branded liquors, wines, beers and non-alcoholic drinks. The beachside Rasta Bar served cocktails on Rasta Beach all day long. My favourite bar though would have to be The Common. It was situated adjacent to the main pool where the staff were always so friendly. You could get refreshments during the day and evening as well as live entertainment on select nights ranging from steel drums to a variety of live music.
