Busy As Bees We’ve Been…

It seems like just yesterday we were decking the halls and getting all glitzy and glamourous for Christmas and making New Year’s resolutions…and what a wonderful time we had here at Trade Winds Hotel and Bay House Restaurant & Bar…thank you for spending and sharing that time with us.

Now Spring is here and we are very excited and we’ve been up to quite a lot.

In January we began converting our upper deck into a state of the art multimedia multifunction events/conference room…quite a mouthful eh?  We are not sure as yet what we should call this space as it can be used for meetings, training seminars, conferences, weddings, parties etc.  If you have any suggestions we would love to hear them…thanks ;-).  Our smaller conference room also received an upgrade with a new smart television and AV equipment.

Conference room, events room?!?! Can you help us name this new space?

In keeping with our sustainable tourism and environmental policy to reduce, reuse and recycle we began refurbishment on our Restaurant’s bathrooms.   The refurbishment process involved the installation of motion sensor taps, dual flush toilets, porcelain tiles and granite vanities for longevity along with re-wiring and the use of energy saving light bulbs.  We would like to thank you for your patience during this process.

Our website has been sparked with love, romance and milestone celebrations as we’ve added our Weddings & Honeymoons packages and launched our Birthday & Anniversary Club.  Do take some time to browse through our offers and sign-up.

New but familiar faces are at the helm of the Bay House Restaurant & Bar as the Dynamic Duo M&M (Michelle & Marcia) now steer the restaurant.  To stay connected with you the Bay House Restaurant is now on Facebook and you can follow us on Instagram.  Also to make it easier for you to stay connected with your family, friends or work we’ve upgraded our Wi-Fi and connection throughout the property is now seamless and FREE.

Coconut tree stumps being used as orchid pots.

Our Grounds Supervisor Mr. Abraham and his team have been busy in our kitchen garden so the next time you dine with us at Bay House Restaurant your meal will include freshly picked herbs, spices and veggies grown by us.

If you have visited recently you would have noticed that our trademark coconut trees are fewer and this is due to an islandwide case of Lethal Yellowing.  However, all is not lost as we’ve gotten creative by using the coconut stumps as orchids pots and we now have beautiful orchids in full bloom throughout the grounds.  In addition our Head Groundsman Daniel Montgomery and The Plant Protection Department have implemented a plan and have been treating and monitoring the surviving trees, we will keep you posted on their progress.

Who doesn't love sand between their toes?

Expect lots of sandy toes and more as we continue our “beachcombing adventures” in our quest to name Antigua & Barbuda’s 365 beaches.  To unlock your FREE pass to join our quest just stop by our Reception Desk and say the magic phrase three times “sun, sea, sand and FUN”.    For beaches and dates check our events page.
