Hemisphere`s Restaurant Gets a Facelift

Antiguaå‘s Jolly Beach Resort continues to improve and upgrade its facilities, building on the $14 million renovation completed last year. Recent enhancements are to the most popular of this all-inclusiveå‘s five dining areas, Hemispheres Restaurant.

Centrally located, Hemispheres is an approximately 9,000 square foot indoor and outdoor buffet style dining area. It is the backbone of the resort’s food and beverage facilities, open daily from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Now the main seating area has a new roof, and floors have been retiled. The buffet, where guests choose from a menu reflecting cuisines from around the world—everything from roast veal with rosemary sauce to baked red snapper with tamarind glaze—has been repainted in a lively turquoise. The upgrade has also spilled out to the adjacent entertainment area, and the courtyard where afternoon tea is served; both have been resurfaced.

At Jolly Beach, other dining options include the Coconut Grill where local chefs serve up barbecue, light grilled food and sandwiches under a thatched bamboo roof; Olives where classic Greek courses like moussaka are favorites; Ristorante Bocciolo, where diners enjoy an antipasto bar, homemade pasta; fresh salads and Italian entrees in an elegant Mediterranean-style setting; and Lydia`s Crab Hole Village which features fresh seafood Caribbean style, so the menu changes with the `catch`.

The 462-room property, Antigua`s largest, is set in a scenic 40-acre estate along a mile of white sand beach, and boasts an 8,000 sq. fantasy pool with waterfalls and a Jacuzzi. All rooms are air-conditioned and face the ocean; each has a patio or balcony, direct-dial phone, cable TV, hair-dryer and rentable safe.

Jolly Beach`s all-inclusive format delivers all the resort offers for rates that start at $140 per person now through December 20, 2002, and $150 per person December 21, 2002 through April 15, 2003 for Standard accommodation.
