South Point Antigua
What We Love
- A relaxing and modern pied-à-terre amid Caribbean beach and marina life, including breakfastThe pool and intimate private shore – not that Antigua has any shortage of beaches
- The close proximity to the marina, with its yacht clubs and day-charter catamarans
- The open, spacious suites with fully equipped kitchens and terraces overlooking the harbor
What To Know
- Free WiFi is unreliable
- Nelson's Dockyard, Pigeon Beach, and plenty of great restaurants are all within 5-minute walking distance
- The hotel has its own tiny private beach, but there are better public beaches nearby
Like the surrounding island of Antigua, South Point is both charmingly Caribbean and thoroughly cosmopolitan. At once laid-back and modern, this tropical boutique hotel offers comfortable and spacious open-plan suites with stunning views of the sun-drenched marina and Caribbean. A swimming pool lined by palms and tropical gardens provides the ideal balance of sun and shade, and you’re invited to sip a poolside espresso by day or, by evening, enjoy a harborside meal at the restaurant that fuses Asian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine.
Off the hotel property, marina life goes busily on among magnificent mega-yachts and day-charter catamarans. Nearby cafés, gelaterias and bars provide a continuous hum of daily activity, while barbecues and reggae shows pop up as the sun sets. And if you’d like to hit the beach, South Point has a private one, while the island has plenty of others – 365 total, or one for every day of the year.
With a contemporary, urban style, as well as air conditioning and a ceiling fan, the suites at South Point look as effortlessly cool as they feel. Each has a modern living area with a fully equipped kitchen, an outdoor dining area and an interior lounge. Find a walk-in shower and double basin sinks in your en-suite bathroom.
Inspired by the best of Asian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, South Point’s restaurant showcases authentic flavors in simple, fresh dishes on a beautiful deck over the bay. The Lounge at South Point, meanwhile, offers a sophisticated, relaxed and easygoing space where you can sample light fare, creative cocktails and a discerning wine list while watching marina life unfold.
The sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands, Antigua is a beautiful, temperate tropical escape with 365 beaches and coral reefs that attract snorkelers and scuba divers from all over the world. In addition to water sports, the island offers activities from gourmet dining to bird-watching. Charter a yacht for a day sail around the island, sojourn to one of many restaurants scattered throughout the island, and catch a spontaneous reggae show at Shirley Heights Lookout.
How to Get There
Great place but bad timing as they were not fully reopened during the off season. Staff was AMAZING overall. Pool and room were amazing. I would stay here again but would need to know they are fully open.
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at South Point. We had the hotel completely to ourselves as we stayed out of season but it only added to the enjoyment for us. Our room was lovely big and spacious with a beautiful kitchen and fantastic bathroom/dressing room. The aircon worked perfectly and was a very welcome relief from the heat outside. Every member of staff we met were so friendly. The lovely ladies who cleaned our room each day did a wonderful job. Breakfast was perfectly adequate each morning with a beautiful setting overlooking the harbour. We had dinner once which was delicious. Even though it was out of season there were plenty of places to eat outside if you chose to. It is a 10 minute walk to Nelsons Dockyard and Pigeon Beach and you can catch the bus at the end of the road straight into St Johns. We will definitely come back to Antigua and would without a doubt stay at South Point again.
Well done to all the staff you run an absolute gem of a hotel and know how to make someone’s 50th Birthday vacation very special
Out family of 10 go to a different spot in the Caribbean every year and South Point is above the rest.The staff is professional. responsive, and friendly. The breakfast amazing and the extremely large rooms furnished with high end Italian furniture and kitchen appliances. The bathroom shower has a wrap around bench and it has a walk in dressing room with storage. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
