About The Hotel

The all inclusive Verandah Resort & Spa is located on Antigua’s pristine northeast coast on thirty spectacular beachfront acres traversed by hiking trails and bordered by Devil’s Bridge National Park with its dramatic landmark rock arch. A tranquil spot with plenty of activities for families, the Verandah is set amid Antigua’s best beaches and has the island’s largest free form pool. The Verandah Resort & Spa offers a wide variety spacious accommodation for families, designed in the style of a Caribbean village and with large balconies or terraces overlooking the gardens or the sea. There is a kids club for children aged 2 – 11, family friendly dining and the resort can organise Jeep tours of the rain forest, golf trips to local historic sites as well as shopping, dining and exploring in the vibrant capital city of St. John’s.

As well as the island’s largest freeform swimming pool, the Verandah Resort & Spa has access to two white sand beaches in a protected cove-like bay, safe for swimming and with water sports and a PADI dive centre.

The well equipped fitness centre hosts regular yoga, aerobics and even Caribbean dance classes and there is even a cinema as well as nightly entertainment in the form of live music.

Rooms are divided into suites and villas housed in Caribbean-style cottages and with connecting options for families. The Waterview suites are open plan single story suites with a bedroom and large seating area with views of the gardens and a partial view of the sea.Vaulted ceilings create a sense of spaciousness, and wood, bamboo and rattan furniture bring nature indoors. Perfect for families, the new Two Bedroom Villas are situated on top of the hill with their own dedicated pool and courtyard gardens. Each Villa provides living/dining area, flat screen TV, balcony and fully equipped kitchen.

All three restaurants are centered in an expansive, centrally located activities complex on The Common, overlooking the pool and manicured grounds. The open air Seabreeze restaurant offers regular themed buffets, Nicole’s is a fine dining Caribbean restaurant and Buccaneer serves lighter, family-friendly fare for dinner with an alternative a la carte menu, as well as afternoon tea from 3pm to 5pm daily. All restaurants offer excellent kids menus, with fresh local meat and fish alongside the favourite pasta, pizza, burgers and sandwiches.

The Verandah Resort & Spa ‘Kidz Club’ is a purpose built spacious building with a large adventure playground shaded by trees and a children’s splash pool. Games, crafts and activities for little ones aged 2 – 12 are offered daily and it includes a cozy nap area, bathroom facilities, a kitchenette and movies. The playground offers active children a variety of slides and climbing equipment for fun in the sun and the splash pool is ideal for toddlers, with a cascading shower and shallow pool. In the evenings, parents can relax over dinner and leave the children in the care of the Kidz Club for dinner and a movie. Movie nights, a weekly teen’s disco and karaoke help keep young teens occupied in the evening, whilst parents can enjoy a leisurely dinner. Tucked away near the adult-only pool, a large covered games area and the Mini-Golf course are perfect entertainment for older children.
