The Ocean Inn is your best bet for a wonderful vacation. - English Harbour Antigua & Barbuda
A rare glimpse of luxury, history, geography and tropical elegance, all tucked away in a beautiful garden overlooking Antigua’s historic Nelson's Dockyard and turquoise Caribbean waters.
You look out of your window, pass the gardener, who is busily pruning the lemon, cherry, banana, hibiscus and bougainvillea trees; the sky is clear blue, the sea is a deeper blue, sparkling with sunlight. A gentle breeze comes drifting in from the ocean, clean and refreshing as you sit on our balcony having your breakfast. For a moment, you think you have died and gone to heaven. But this paradise is real and affordable. In fact, it cost only half as much to live this dream and lifestyle as it would be to stay in your own home. The Ocean Inn is just a 5 minute walk from many activities, including three of Antigua's most modern marinas, home to world famous Antigua Sailing Week, the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta and the Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting held each December.
This small Antiguan owned and Antiguan managed hotel offers 12 unique bedrooms perched on the hillside with stunning views of Ordinance Bay and luxury yachts entering and leaving the harbour daily. The amazing thing about it? It offers affordable Antiguan accommodation in an area surrounded by beauty, charm, opulence and luxury.
With its superb location it is perfect for vacationers looking for a base from which to discover Antigua. The beautiful Ocean Inn is surrounded by all the charm and calm of our countryside, but still within easy reach of many restaurants, shops, sailing, snorkeling, diving, tennis, horseback-riding, deep sea fishing, and two of Antigua’s finest beaches. It’s also a great stopover for yachtsmen and women looking for a few nights on dry land prior to the next sail, race or yacht charter.
But what makes us really special – we believe in giving our visitors the personal care and attention that you can only find in a small Antiguan hotel. A visit with us is a personal experience which we ensure is tailored exactly to your requirements.
