Back to COCOS Hotel Antigua

Tuesday 23rd June 2020

ST. JOHN’S, ANTIGUA (JUNE 22, 2020) - Following the unprecedented closure of global borders, COCOS all-inclusive boutique hotel known for its simple Caribbean style cottages, personal infinity plunge pools and fine dining, will open to couples seeking a much needed getaway from July 4th.

Embracing the national health and safety protocols established to protect both guests and employees, the new way of doing business is being designed to enhance the COCOS experience well known for its simplicity, seclusion and space.

“We have reduced the touch points, allowing our guests to enjoy the utmost privacy during their stay” outlined Nigel Trellis, Managing Director. “Contactless check-in, online menus, and electronic ordering options we believe will enhance the experience, while a rigorous programme of deep cleaning all public and private spaces, and increased frequency and intensity of sanitation will provide the peace of mind that our environment is conducive to your physical and mental wellness.”

The adults only, couples retreat of 35 private cottages set on 10 acres of land with over 1000 feet of beach across two separate private inlets on the South West coast of the island is perfectly designed for seclusion with ample space for social distancing. Executive Chef, Hensley Pryce, a son of Caribbean soil with training in Milan, Italy, brings his unique culinary flair perfectly blending international standards with natural healing ingredients directly from local farms and the surrounding sea.

Serving fully inclusive à la carte meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner and premium brand liquor since its inception in 1997, dining is completely al fresco with various location options including the multi-tiered main restaurant, the moonlit Cliff side lounge, one of two beach side lounges, private candlelit beach dinner or on your own private balcony on a Sunset Pool Cottage where you can dip your toes in your personal plunge pool while dipping into your dessert.

Owner and founder of COCOS, Andrew Michelin, a hotel industry veteran of 40 years outlined the concept of the resort “There are 35 individual cottages originally designed with privacy in mind, with the very purpose of providing a space where couples come to connect with nature, connect with the healing sounds and minerals of the sea, and connect with their significant other. We reflect the very essence of the Caribbean which is relaxation, solitude, simplicity and peace. This is offered through a unique combination of home grown foods, traditional wooden cottages cooled by your choice of air conditioning or natural sea breezes, and outside rain water showers under the warming sun or sparkling stars. We offer a unique stress free escape with absolutely no distractions from TVs or radios and the pressures of city life that they bring.”

Andrew continued, “The island has fared well health wise over the past few months and through our enhanced hygiene procedures and new internationally accepted hotel standards ranging from face mask use when interacting with others, daily health evaluations of staff, temperature checks on property and leaving rooms to breathe on departure, we are playing our role in maintaining the safety of both staff and guests while welcoming visitors to reset, renew and restore their souls.”

The hotel will also be open to couples seeking to celebrate meaningful milestones from exchanging of vows, renewal of vows, or anniversaries following a very challenging period in the world’s history.
