Very interesting to see a major airline operating out of Kent. This is from April so you can book tickets now. Now as far as Antigua goes the Dutch airline isn’t flying to Antigua. But the important takeaway is that it may be a new trend as the airlines start to get into other markets lets face it the uk major airports are being very greedy for tax hurting the global tourism industry. Let’s hope this relieves pressure on the hearts and minds as the balls get to relax.
Carib journal again made mention of the Caribbean regions major business influencer that is China. I have to agree though they didn’t mention Antigua. But if you were around at Carnival the Chinese float would not have gone amiss since it was quite odd (I thought). They are you see building the new airport and at any business hotel you will find the business men are staying. The investment will not be for free and I bet it increases trade links and cooperation between the various island states and China. Not maybe a bad thing especially if they can reduce the bloody import taxes, this does few people any good at all.
Especially massive is the Baha Mar a very large resort in the Bahamas with Chinese involvement.
Not just for the business user nor the Antigua holidaymaker a day pass could be the ideal tonic to your rental cottage or condo. It’s restaurant bar area is so nice it’s a great place to dine and meet people who live and work on the island. The rooms are finished to an exceptional standard with balconies and views across the azure sea. I recommend the Antigua breakfast with an intro to the salt fish and johhny cake (none left for a pic !) excellent. If you are in the evening then get the mixologist Altino to work up a special cocktail just for you. It’s a shame I hadn’t seen this when I was staying at the halcyon rex as I would have surely taken a few evening dinners and drinks up here.

Ideal for the business man/group with a large conference room facility; it is also a place you can get married in, or for other events. If you dine here you can use the pool too. So there are many options open to you – start with dinner and make the decision to come back for the day. The rains do not disrupt your relaxation under the restaurant roof if it’s a day like that even alfresco.
Some dislike the sand, up here it’s sand free and the fresh trade winds blowing through the tropical designer garden will keep you refreshed and cool. It’s a hidden gem for Antigua flying it’s own niche flag – make sure you check it out.
We arrived yesterday into VC Bird International and this time we were ushered into a fast track lane so no waiting with baby in arms for over an hour, good stuff. We had no evident baggage disasters but Summer had really by this time had enough of the plane and wanted out, we all arrived a bit warmly dressed and still had to pick up the rental car. I paid for one of the guys who transport your stuff out from the carousel we really needed it this time. We had seemingly everything and the potty !
