Some of the top hotels and resorts in Antigua and Barbuda are back to welcoming international guests, while others are waiting until the traditionally busier fall season before opening their doors again.
Antigua was one of the first Caribbean destinations to reopen to tourism post-COVID, back in early June. At the time, however, only a handful of hotels were certified to welcome guests.
That list has now grown to 17 by mid-August, with many more hotel openings to come in October and November.
All of the hotels open at this time are located on the island of Antigua.
Resorts that have been certified in compliance with Antigua and Barbuda’s COVID-19 safety and sanitary protocols and currently open include:
Admirals Inn – Gunpowder Suites: boutique hotel in historic Nelson’s Dockyard
Antigua Village: condos on Dickenson Bay
Buccaneer Beach Club: small Dickenson Bay resort with villas and cottages
