Ac­com­mo­da­tion has been mov­ing steadily up-mar­ket across the two is­lands. Hodges Bay is due to open on the north coast of An­tigua this year, fea­tur­ing beach­front pent­houses, vil­las and suites; hodges­bay.com. On Bar­buda, Robert De Niro is the face of the lav­ish re­con­struc­tion of K-Club, beloved by Princess Diana, af­ter whom the beach on which it sits is named. The project will in­clude 50 vil­las and cot­tages, each with a pri­vate pool, six over­wa­ter vil­las, a su­pery­acht ma­rina, and an air­port for pri­vate jets and he­li­copters. The open­ing last June of Bar­buda Belle has al­ready put An­tigua’s tiny sis­ter is­land back on the lux­ury map. Five one and one two-bed­room wooden beach bun­ga­lows on stilts, and a club­house with a bar and French seafood restau­rant sit on an iso­lated beach on the north coast, only ac­ces­si­ble by sea; bar­bud­abelle.com. Tucked away from the busy main drag at Fal­mouth Har­bour, the 23-suite South Point of­fers serene views of this lovely bay and its moored su­pery­achts; south­pointan­tigua.com. This year’s An­tigua Sail­ing Week takes place from April 29 to May 5. More: sail­ing­week.com. • ay­c­marinare­sort.com • vis­i­tan­tiguabar­buda.com
