The number one…to many it may be the loneliest number especially when it comes to travelling. But of late the number of persons travelling solo has been increasing. For many, travelling solo is the ultimate liberating experience affording you flexibility where your time is truly your OWN.
Despite being tagged as one of the Caribbean’s most romantic destination, Antigua is also perfect for the solo traveller. Whether you are looking for an exotic and intimate setting to hide yourself away or seeking adventure the Trade Winds Hotel is the perfect place to stay. Nestled on the hillside overlooking the ever popular Dickenson Bay you are provided with a hidden escape yet very close to the epicentre of beaches, watersports, sailing, shopping, golfing, day tours and an active nightlife.
A short 10-minute drive from the airport you are welcomed by our personable and friendly staff who will cater to your every need. Our rooms are airy and comfortable equipped with all amenities plus private balconies overlooking our gardens and Dickenson Bay. When dining at our TripAdvisor Recommended Bay House Restaurant our staff will seat you wherever you chose with exclusive personal attention. Our alfresco menu offers local and international cuisine and ALL DAY BREAKFAST with room service so feel free to laze in bed all or day and catch up on your favourite TV/talk show. Not to be missed though are the fabulous sunsets from our deck and our daily happy hour from 5-7pm…don’t forget your camera.
You can be as busy or as quiet as your mood dictates when you stay at Trade Winds Hotel. Relax in our gardens or poolside with your favourite book, sketch pad or connect with your family and friends back home with our FREE high speed Wi-fi. Work on your handicap on the back nine at Cedar Valley Golf Course or wander down to lively Dickenson Bay for some excitement and meet up with locals and other travellers. Or head on out on the high seas on a circumnavigation or leisure cruise around the island…a few whales or dolphins may pop up to say hi ;-).
For the nature lover lace up your hiking boots and take a peaceful and introspective hike through Wallings Dam, Body Pond or Pillars of Hercules or dun your flip-flops and tip-toe through soft sands under the moonlight as you turtle watch.
If you’re looking to “get your groove back”…hahaha…just kidding…but if you are looking to get your party on there are lots of fetes and parties to choose from especially during Sailing Week, Carnival and Independence, browse through our events page for a full list of upcoming events.
