Jumby Bay, a luxury resort located on a private island to the north of Antigua, will now be a part Oetker Collection, which also includes Eden Rock Hotel in neighbouring St. Barth’s, Germany’s Brenners Park Hotel & Spa, Le Bristol in Paris, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on the French Riviera, Château Saint-Martin & Spa in Provence, The Seychelles’ Fregate Island, The Lanesborough in London, L’Apogée in Courchevel, and most recently Palácio Tangará, which opened in June 2017 in São Paulo.
Jumby Bay is a idyllic retreat and residential community comprising 40 hotel suites, three restaurants, excellent spa and fitness facilities, water sports, five tennis courts and 50 individually designed and fully staffed estate homes. High profile homeowners at Jumby Bay include Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the Sainsbury family and writer Ken Follett.
“Today, I am delighted to announce our expansion with a second masterpiece in the Caribbean: Jumby Bay Island,” said Frank Marrenbach, chief executive of Oetker Collection. Mr Marrenbach further explained, “This private island paradise is a truly special and precious place, with 120 hectares of manicured landscape surrounded by white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. As of October, guests will experience Oetker Collection’s highest standards of quality service to which they are accustomed, and can rest assured that our team of hoteliers will offer them quite a unique sense of place.”
As the new operator of the Jumby Bay Island 40-room hotel, Oetker Collection will be responsible for the management of the resort as well as the rental of the villas and estate homes, some of which offer up to nine bedrooms and most of them with direct access to a private beach.
