Why Stay At Cocos Hotel
White-sand beaches flank the cliff-side cottages at this couples-only resort on Antigua's southwest coast.
Looking for panoramic waterfront views? The all-inclusive Cocos Hotel, perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, delivers it in spades. But you'll want to select your room wisely: the 26 cottages are set among the palm trees, and the higher the cottage, the greater the view. Inside, there are dark wood floors and wispy white curtains; furnishings—such as four-poster beds and comfortable deck chairs—were crafted by local artisans. The adults-only policy means that the feeling is quiet and serene, and the private beach is often empty—ideal for the couples and honeymooners who frequent the hotel. Though the Serenity Cottage spa isn't full service, there are a range of pampering treatments, such as a sea salt body polish and hydrating wrap.
Guests staying three nights or more receive a complimentary, 30-minute spa treatment at Serenity Cottage
The all-inclusive rate includes three meals a day at the Cocos Restaurant, where the signature dish is a crab meat-stuffed mahi mahi served in a garlic-tomato sauce.
Arrive at V.C. Bird International Airport (ANU) which is approximately 13 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.Valley Church Beach, Saint John's, Antigua and Barbuda
