“Ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon this is your Captain speaking on behalf of the entire crew, welcome aboard flight #532 non-stop service to Antigua.”
A few weeks ago we shared with our Northern and European friends how to get to Antigua…and no we didn’t forget about you our Caribbean neighbours. Yeah you may think why do I need to visit Antigua & Barbuda, we’ve got lots of sunshine, beaches, historical sites on our islands too. But no two islands are the same…we vary in culture, history, attractions, food, traditions, terrain and character.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the Captain has turned on the seat beat sign as we prepare for descent to Antigua please ensure that your tray tables are in their upright and locked position”
Excitement and intrigue builds up as you double check your seat beat and tray table and mentally go through the list of things you plan to do:
- Beachcombing with Trade Winds Hotel
- Visit Wallings Dam Reservoir
- Spend the day exploring St. John’s museum, shops and sites
- Nelson’s Dockyard
- Shirley’s Heights
“Ladies and gentlemen welcome to V.C. Bird International Airport, please remain seated until the aircraft has come to a complete stop and the Captain has turned off the seat belt sign”
Upon your arrival at the hotel you are greeted with warm smiles and hellos by the Reception team as we provide you with your room key, complimentary drink coupon and Wi-Fi access password.
Entering your room you are engulfed by the cool pastel Caribbean décor which is complimented by the lush garden and the turquoise Caribbean Sea visible from your private deck.
After freshening up you make your way to Bayhouse Restaurant & Bar to get a light snack and your welcome drink and as you walk through the archway you stop in your tracks:
“Oh my gosh this view, the the photos on the website doesn’t do it justice. Oh look at that sunset…hmmm I wonder if I would even want to leave the hotel.”
Welcome to the delightful Trade Winds Hotel, Antigua, one of the island’s quietest, prettiest and best kept secrets we are very happy that you’ve selected us as your hotel whilst in Antigua.
