Wonderfull, Relaxing Ten Day Stay at Nonsuch Bay

London, Canada

If you are reading this, and other reviews, you are likely trying to determine whether Nonsuch Bay is worthy of your hard earned vacation dollars. You’ve seen that it is small (62 rooms), on a beautiful but hilly location, with large well appointed rooms with wrap around verandas accessed through French Doors, but you are concerned that it is all inclusive in a remote location with one restaurant and bar. Fear not. While breakfast and lunch were buffet style there were always fresh and varied options. A la Carte dinner service was varied, creatively presented, and always pleasingly prepared and presented by the hard working, friendly staff. Wine and spirits were not “top shelf” but were just fine and I believe this is why they can offer an upscale experience at a reasonable price. We have been to other islands and resorts and for the most part enjoyed the experience. Antigua is beautiful and the airport is one of the best I have travelled to and from but it was the people at Nonsuch that made our trip in March of this year so special. Whether it was Everton mixing you the perfect drink (fresh nutmeg in the rum punch), to Ruth overseeing things at her desk in the lobby, to Natasha making it all happen, Austin getting you to where you wanted to be, and Jessie who could sell snow to a Canadian, they and all the others make your stay a pleasant experience Many thanks for a wonderful, rejuvenating holiday.

A very different Caribbean experience. Superb accommodation.

Ottawa, Canada

We were met at the airport by a taxi driver provided by the resort. He was a very sociable man who played cricket for the national team in his youth. He introduced us to Antiguan way of driving. Roads are narrow with little or no shoulder and the asphalt at the edges is often eroded. As a result everyone likes to occupy the middle portion as much as possible. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terrified at times. And they drive on the left which is disorienting in itself. However, we arrived at the resort safely and were shown to our room promptly. The resort photos of the suites on their website are are hard to believe. I was prepared for a bit of disappointment but that wasn’t the case. Our “room” was a magnificent two bedroom condo on the 3rd floor with 3 ocean facing balconies, 2 large bedrooms, vaulted ceilings, a great room with a living area containing white overstuffed sofa and chair, a full kitchen and a dining table that seats six. I wasn’t disappointed in the least. The topography in the area is almost fjord like. Mountains crowd down to the sea and form long bays that channel the prevailing wind. Nonsuch Bay is a sailing and kite surfing mecca. We do neither sport but we enjoyed the constant refreshing breeze. Snorkeling is our passion and the resort provides twice weekly boat trips to Green Island. It is an uninhabited island with picture perfect white sand beaches. In the water there are some decent coral formations and lots of fish, even the odd turtle and ray. The boat drops you and picks you up a couple of hours later. We kayaked a lot. Word of warning, the long bay to the left of the resort was very easy going in but coming out was arduous. The wind made it difficult to move forward at all! There is only one restaurant but what a restaurant! Kudos to the chefs, serving staff, bartenders and foremost the elegant, charming, gracious hostess who greeted us every night at dinner. Sadly, I waited too long to write this review and can’t remember any names. Entertainment was fantantastic. Nothing hokey. No horrible karaoke nights. There were 4 nights with very professional live musicians that filled the dance floor. It was great to see resort staff busting some impressive moves. This is an understated, wonderful resort that will not fail to delight. It is carved into the mountain side and all buildings overlook the bay. The sun sets behind the resort but you can watch it by taking a trek up to the top level of the resort. The view over mountains and valleys is stunning andat sunset well worth the effort. We rented a car and drove to Stingray City. I would take a taxi next time. Driving on the left, narrow roads and the scarcity of road signs stressed me out. We got there in time for the first tour of the day, before the cruise ship hordes arrive. I expected some kind of enclosure but was delighted that it is open water. The stingrays are attracted to the shallow, sandy bottomed area by food. There are a number of handlers that feed them bits of fish and the rays apparently recognize each one of them. You can feed them and hold them. My wife fed one but I was not that brave. However, they swim all around you and brush against your body. They are quite big, 3 fo 4 foot wingspan but so gentle and graceful. It was an amazing experience. We loved our week in Antigua at Nonsuch Bay.
