"I whiled away many an hour just staring at the immensely beautiful view"
Though anxious to start the day with an early morning swim in the cool Caribbean Sea, the young woman is in the lounge area - with work on her mind. The bartender nods as she meets his eye, and within moments the familiar aroma of freshly brewed coffee fills the air. Against the backdrop of gently rolling hills, soft earth tones and a serene seascape, the lounge at Hermitage Bay is the picture of rustic luxury. Colourful pillows, white cushions and dark rattan furniture seamlessly blend modern Caribbean style with the neutral tones of the lush bay.
Easing back into one of the big sofas, she closes her book to enjoy her morning coffee. The watches the staff come and go, changing pool towels and refreshing drinks. They are always ’polite and engaging, ready to spend time over a chat without ever being intrusive or outstaying their welcome.’ She stays there for some time, the resort’s peaceful ambience affording a long over-due opportunity to reflect and refocus.
Often noted for its remarkable ability to calm even the most restless of minds, the lounge area is the ideal place to unwind with a cup of tea or a good book. Set on the edge of the white sand beach, this open-air pavilion is arguably one of the hotel’s most powerful amenities. With the infinity pool on its right, the calm shimmering waters of the bay to the left and the Caribbean Sea extending for miles in front, one cannot help but give in to the commanding views.
