"Forget the world"
At Hermitage Bay, our mission is to ensure that our guests every need is met and they are delighted with every aspect of their stay. Our warm and caring staff dedicates themselves wholeheartedly to providing the highest levels of guest care and comfort. We commit to provide a luxurious, peaceful, natural environment where mind, body and spirit are nurtured and restored.
As the name suggests, Hermitage Bay is a place of peace and tranquillity.
"It demands a gentle hand;" co-owner, Andy Thesen explains, "it demands that man-made noises are minimized so that the natural noises prevail: the waves on the beach, the breeze in the trees, and the chatter of the birds. It is the perfect antidote to modern, hectic life. It is a true hermitage." An avid environmentalist, Andy and his business partner, Andrew Michelin, embarked on this project with a real sense of the responsibility they had to retain the spirit of Hermitage Bay.
This gentle-handed approach was adhered to even as we cleared the land in a non-invasive manner, sourced sustainable building materials and constructed the property to blend in naturally with the bay. The practice continues to this day with the hotel’s "reduce, reuse and recycle" policy, as well as our conscientious efforts to use natural detergents and beauty products, employ solar energy technologies, and source locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables.
Though the setting encourages a very natural, authentic Caribbean experience where you are free to escape your every day life, the resort also ensures that the comforts of home are readily available, ultimately providing the best of both worlds.
