A Sanctuary in Paradise
The Great House Antigua, a 350 years old former sugar plantation has been converted into a luxurious boutique private hotel, providing accommodation for those who wish for rest and rejuvenation.
The boutique wellness retreat offers world-class experts and a personalised wellness programme to provide the body and mind with the perfect break.
The experienced staff include nutritionists, fitness instructors, masseurs, yoga and meditation experts.
A wellness class is offered daily, which is held on the meditation platform overlooking the perfect Caribbean Sea, and full use of the house and grounds.
The Great House primarily focuses on guests wellbeing, encouraging a longer and more sustainable commitment to one’s self, and also aims to rid each guest of their self-imposed limitations, providing them with the necessary tools to improve their lifestyle, to be more mindful and confident in their abilities.
Guests also have full access to Mercers Creek Bay for walks, as well as driving or walking tours of the island with members of The Great House team.
The history of The Great House Antigua is one of its most unique aspects. As ones of the last standing stone plantation houses on the island the house and grounds are rich with original artefacts and stories.
Family owner, Janey Howell, said: “Throughout the centuries the Great House has been a haven and sanctuary for famous and infamous guests. Family lore recalls secret visits by the Kennedys, Greta Garbo, HRH the Princess Margaret and Humphrey Bogart amongst others”.
The combination of colonial elegance and privacy amid the beautiful surroundings will work to rid you of the stresses and strains of everyday life. This is a time for guests to unwind and recharge their body and mind, while surrounded by the beauty and history of The Great House Antigua.
