Antigua and Barbuda’s unique mix of culture, history, and natural beauty make it an ideal destination for anyone looking to escape the ordinary and experience something truly extraordinary.
We are excited to welcome Angela Bassett and Dawnn Lewis to their home away from home. With their talent, passion, and love for travel, they will inspire travelers from around the world to come and experience all that Antigua and Barbuda has to offer.
Our newest Tourism Ambassadors along with Dean Fenton, Antigua and Barbuda Director of Tourism USA were hosted by the Antigua and Barbuda Sotheby’s International Realty team at a private cocktail and dinner to enjoy a bespoke in-villa luxury experience. As the sun set, our VVIP guests embraced our warm hospitality as they indulged in the scrumptious local cuisine prepared by one of our favorite local chefs, Chef David and danced to the sweet sounds of Gavin and his band featuring Aubrey “Lacu” Samuel, a well-known Caribbean panist. We were extremely grateful to have hosted our new Tourism Ambassadors at Sunset Sonata, one of Antigua’s newest luxury villas located in Jolly Harbour, exclusively listed with Antigua and Barbuda Sotheby’s International Realty.
Nothing compares to what’s next…
