The New Jumby Bay Resort Opens

MCM Architects designed the original Long Island Resort 26 years ago on a private Island 2 miles off Antigua, West Indies. The resort name changed to Jumby Bay and this year it was nearly totally rebuilt from the ground up. When we originally designed the resort in 1983 no one had any idea of who would come to such a remote location and how much they would be willing to pay. Over the years the Island evolved into one of the most exclusive resorts in the Caribbean, however, over the years the climate (not to mention hurricanes) took it's toll on the buildings and peoples tastes in resort environments changed. So the decision was made to tear down and build new.

The original Estate House remained along with 12 adjacent rooms. The beach restaurant and bar was extensively remodeled and expanded and 28 new suites built. The resort has re-opened this month after being closed for over a year during construction.
