The prize

Two peo­ple will have the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence a taste of Jumby Bay Is­land, stay­ing in one of the lux­u­ri­ous pri­vately owned Es­tate Homes (there are only 19 on the is­land). You will en­joy full ac­cess to Jumby Bay Is­land’s world-renowned fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices, in ad­di­tion to hav­ing a ded­i­cated team of per­sonal staff in your home to in­clude a house­keeper, chef and but­ler. For four nights, you will live in lux­ury in a home ap­prox­i­mately 10,000 sq ft in size, with a pri­vate pool, pri­vate beach area and other fa­cil­i­ties. Your stay is fully com­pli­men­tary mean­ing all meals, drinks and a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties will be in­cluded in the prize – you can dine at ev­ery restau­rant on the is­land within this of­fer­ing.

Sur­rounded by warm crys­tal waters, Jumby Bay Is­land is a play­ground for wa­ter­sports en­thu­si­asts of all lev­els. A va­ri­ety of com­pli­men­tary ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing water-ski­ing, wind­surf­ing, pad­dle­board­ing, kayak­ing and snorkelling are also of­fered in an itin­er­ary for all guests on is­land. Dine in the sig­na­ture bar and restau­rant, The Es­tate House, which re­opened De­cem­ber 2016 fol­low­ing a multi- mil­lion pound ren­o­va­tion.

The plan­ta­tion house, which dates from around 1830, once the cen­ter­piece of the is­land’s sugar plan­ta­tion and the old­est build­ing on Jumby Bay Is­land, has been re­turned to its for­mer grandeur with a de­sign scheme and culi­nary con­cept in­spired by the home’s rich his­tory and is­land tra­di­tions. The new Es­tate House has a main restau­rant and bar with three new pri­vate din­ing rooms each fea­tur­ing a dif­fer­ent is­land-in­spired menu, as well as a wine room.

The provider

Renowned for providing dis­cern­ing trav­ellers with world-class ser­vice, Jumby Bay Is­land, man­aged by the Oetker Col­lec­tion, has long been

lauded for its at­ten­tion to de­tail, its stun­ning spa, restau­rants, bars and on is­land ac­tiv­i­ties.

An an­cient coral reef first dis­cov­ered by Christo­pher Colum­bus in 1493 and claimed by the Bri­tish in 1632, Jumby Bay Is­land takes its name from “jumbie,” the local term for a “play­ful spirit”. Held by a se­ries of own­ers, in­clud­ing a fam­ily of sugar planters, the is­land was de­vel­oped into a lux­ury re­sort in the 1980s. To­day, the is­land is owned by a pas­sion­ately com­mit­ted group of home­own­ers, and the re­sort is a re­flec­tion of their ca­sual el­e­gant is­land life­style.


The prize con­sists of a four-night com­pli­men­tary stay in a pri­vately owned Es­tate Home on Jumby Bay Is­land for two guests. Flights are not in­cluded. Valid for reser­va­tions un­til De­cem­ber 18, 2017 and from May 1 to June 30, 2018. Reser­va­tion re­quests will be ac­cepted six weeks prior to ar­rival; reser­va­tion dates are upon re­quest; prize is non trans­ferrable.
