Our favourite rooms
We’re always suckers for an ocean-view room, and the Oceanfront Deluxe Cottage takes the cake as the room closest to the beach – in other words, you’ll wake up to cooling ocean breezes and fall asleep to the lull of the waves.
Perched just above the private beach, the heated outdoor pool is surrounded by plenty of loungers and palm trees, as well as a shaded pavilion with sofas, televisions and workout equipment. Massages are available poolside, and pair perfectly with the cocktails and snacks that can be delivered to you. The private pink-sand beach is also a perfect spot for swimming or basking, complete with jaunty striped umbrellas and loungers, snacks and drinks delivered to you and water activities like kayaking and snorkeling included.
While the Dunmore does not have a spa, massages are available poolside, beauty treatments are available in your room and Pilates, yoga and other fitness classes with a private instructor can be arranged.
Don’t just bring your swimwear and cover-ups: you need walking shoes, too – unlike many Caribbean islands, Harbour Island has plenty to do and explore, from its lively beachside conch shacks to its charming historic town.
Welcome. All rooms are spacious enough to fit extra beds and cots, all of which are free. Babysitting is available for £16 an hour – this must be booked at least seven days in advance – and the myriad activities will keep kids of all ages entertained.
