Staff Blog: Antigua - The Best Indies!


Alexis and Julie from Abbotts Travel at Zetter Hotel

Alexis and myself jumped at this one: a chance to see the latest offerings from Antigua and still get the tube home! We were invited for drinks at the swanky new London offices of our hosts, ITC Luxury Travel and Western & Oriental. We talk to these guys all the time but to see how they do things and rummage through their drawers was fascinating! From there it was a short walk to the Zetter Hotel and an intimate dinner for select agents. Dinner was delightful with an amazing menu. There were presentations too, with Joel Omari Henry from the Antiguan Tourist Board guiding us around the island's highlights. It has safe harbours, 365 beaches and, when it comes to making tourists happy, a can-do attitude. We were wowed by two of the island's jewels: Blue Waters Resort & Spa, and the 5-star Jumby Bay. Both are firm favourites with us and we get repeated requests for these hotels on a regular basis.
