The beautiful villas at Jumby Bay are the perfect place for families to enjoy a private island getaway. Available in two-bedroom, three-bedroom, or four-bedroom options, they offer families room to spread out, and each feature outdoor dining spaces, stunning views of the ocean, and proximity to two spacious pools and three onsite restaurants with children’s menus (plus a beach bar).
Activities for kids include cooking classes and nature walks (where they may even catch a baby turtle hatching). There’s plenty for teens to do as well, whether it’s water ski lessons or beach volleyball. Other family accommodations include personal nanny services, in-room babyproofing, and amenities including cribs, changing tables, and baby monitors. Request these when you’re making your reservation.

Went to Jumby Bay two years ago and returned in July. Last time we rented a villa that had a pool and private beach which was lovely. This time there were fewer of us so we stayed in several Rondaval suites. I prefer the suites! They are centrally located, nicely decorated, very comfortable and have gorgeous views. Loved the outdoor shower. The island is under new management (Oetker Collection) and is even more beautiful!! The beach has been cleared of all sea grass etc. and the sand seemed whiter and cleaner than before. Of course the water is a myriad of incredible blues and greens and the entire island is so beautifully landscaped! The food was also even better than before. Especially at the Veranda and the Estate House. There is a new infinity pool near the beach which was great. Of course the service is the best you’ll ever have. So friendly and accommodating. They think of everything! The white night party, snorkeling trips and sun set cruises were fabulous. Great music. Just an amazing, unique place. Completely relaxing. I highly recommend going in the summer because it’s slightly less expensive and the temperature is only around 85 with constant lovely breezes. Never really felt too hot. My husband and I have decided to go back every year by ourselves. Truly paradise!!!
Perfect location, perfect island, perfect service, wonderful combination of luxury and sincerity. Days go by smoothly in this paradise and doesn't matter how long the stay, it won't be enough. Very nice experience! Thanks
