Sensitive design guidelines for the homes and hotel have been crafted to maintain the aesthetic and natural integrity of the park, and to protect its 360 wildlife species that include rare birds, plants and sea turtles. The low-density development strategy will ensure privacy and preserve a minimum of 80% of the entire Rendezvous Bay landholding in its natural state.
To safeguard Antigua’s natural and cultural heritage, areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Rendezvous Bay must be respected and protected in a way that enhances the experience for future generations of islanders and visitors.
The Rendezvous Bay team is committed to fostering a caring attitude that permeates our every endeavour through the conservation of flora and fauna, energy and water, sustainable practices, social commitment and community outreach.
Rendezvous Bay is a world-class nature retreat and to balance socio-economic progress and nature, we commit to conducting our business with integrity, being respectful of the values and principles of our employees and guests, to protecting the environment, to creating trust and good will in our community and above all to holistically improving quality of life for others.
Exactly how we can help
