AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Eclectic/Unusual): There are not many resorts that entirely occupy their own island but at Jumby Bay I feel privileged being able to explore this refuge of exclusivity.
On a 300-acre idyllic private island, the resort boasts three beaches, an infinity pool near the ocean and various dining options. Accommodations range from traditional rondavels to luxurious villas. After a short privately-launched boat ride from the mainland, guests are greeted with a rum punch and cool towel. Luxurious touches in all rooms include super soft bedding, large flat-panel TVs with DVD players, large glass-enclosed tile showers, his-and-her sinks and private gardens with outdoor showers. Some rooms have private plunge pools with a waterfall and an outdoor soaking tub for late-night bubble baths under the stars. Guests are provided with their own bicycles to get around the large property or they can call for a golf cart driver to pick them up. On Sunday night a barbecue party is hosted; guests should pack some white attire.
