Antigua's Jumby Bay to Reopen as Oetker Collection Resort

When it reopens this week for the 2017/18 season, the former Rosewood resort on Antigua's Jumby Bay Island will be part of the Oetker Collection, an international collection of luxury hotels.

Now known as Jumby Bay, Oetker Collection, the resort offers 40 rooms and suites, as well as 50 individually designed, fully staffed villa and estate-home rentals, the largest of which has nine bedrooms. Amenities include three white-sand beaches, three restaurants, spa and fitness facilities, two pools, and five tennis courts.

"Since the inception of Oetker Collection, we have grown our hotel portfolio with carefully chosen resorts and city hotels, each deserving of the 'Masterpiece' title. Today, I am delighted to announce our expansion with a second Masterpiece in the Caribbean: Jumby Bay Island," said Oetker Collection CEO Frank Marrenbach. "This private island paradise is a truly special place, with 300 acres of manicured landscape surrounded by white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. As of Oct. 9, guests will experience Oetker Collection's highest standards of quality service to which they are accustomed, and can rest assured that our team of hoteliers will offer them quite a unique sense of place."

Added Dennis McNeill, Jumby Bay Island Co. chairman, "It is with great pleasure that the board of directors and homeowners of Jumby Bay Island welcome Oetker Collection as the manager of our resort. We look forward to a long and productive partnership."

Based in Germany, the Oetker Collection currently manages 10 properties around the world, including hotels in Europe, Africa and South America. Jumby Bay is its second Caribbean holding, joining Eden Rock on St. Barth's.
