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.
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).
