The Verandah Resort & Spa

4* out of 5 stars

The Verandah Resort & Spa by Elite is a family-friendly 186-room resort. It is located on 30-acres of the tropical island landscape of Antigua at the northeast of the island. The Verandah Resort & Spa immerses you in truly idyllic surroundings. This beauty is punctuated by the fact that it’s opposite a designated National Park where visitors can take a nature trail to fully realise the natural splendour of a holiday in Antigua. The resort has been designed with the environment in mind. Awaiting the accolade of a ‘Green Hotel’ certification, this eco-friendly property doesn’t sacrifice luxury. With a 30-acre land mass there’s only twelve acres of which the property occupies, offering a spacious environment in which to roam. Vast amounts of space like this equate to vast luxury, and that’s what you’ll find. For a piece of history visit the Devils Bridge, which is a mere walk away, and for more natural wonder try the sanctuaries of Bird Island and Green Island which are accessible via boat.

Verandah Resort & Spa Facilities

The resort offers the use of three free-form pools; one designed for kids in mind, the second is used as the main pool, while the third can only be accessed by adults. The resort also houses three wonderful restaurants, including the Seabreeze, which lays out fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets, as well as a beach bar and grill which serves bites in a very casual, open air setting. Spend your days unwinding on two powdery, white-sand beaches, well-equipped with a beach bar and water sports centre; or treat yourself to an indulgent treatment at the Tranquility Body & Soul Spa. If all this wasn't already enough, guests at the Verandah Resort & Spa can also request access to Pineapple Beach Club's facilities locally 24 hours prior.

Verandah Resort & Spa Activities

The Verandah Resort & Spa activities abound with two tennis courts, fitness centre, yoga and aerobic classes, volleyball, soccer, cricket, Hobie Cat sailing, paddle boating, kayak racing and an 18-hole mini-golf course. For teens there's also a teen room to chill out in, which includes pool tables. Non-motorised watersports are complimentary, and you’ll enjoy such activities like snorkelling, sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking. Meanwhile, the equipment you need is available at the water sports centre. If guests want to venture out and discover the island outside the resort, they also have the option to use Elite's Exclusive Pink Panther Island safari tours.
