The Verandah Resort and Spa, Antigua

I think Antigua should be renamed ‘Butterfly Island’ because I have never been to a place where butterflies are swarming the air like confetti. I noticed this on the drive to the hotel and initially thought it was some sprinkling from nearby flower petals blowing in the breeze, but no  – it was hundreds of white butterflies. Wow, what a sight, like something out of a fairy tale.

The Verandah is a great place to relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the main town and capital St John.

The hotel has a few beach areas and you can also access the popular ‘Long Bay Beach’ with a 5 minute walk from the resort entrance

Hotel rooms are little bungalow type cottages scattered over the resort’s hillside grounds, creating the feeling of a peaceful village setting.

The easiest way to get around the grounds is by catching ‘a golf buggy’ that operates like a bus service – though you can also walk (which is good exercise up the steep hills).
