Replay Destinations appointed design firm Studio Piet Boon as lead designer for Half Moon Bay Antigua in the Caribbean.

The Amsterdam-based studio will lead the overall architectural and interior vision for the Rosewood Residences, as well as the interior design for the new Rosewood Half Moon Bay, set to take shape on 132 acres.

In collaboration with Caribbean architecture firm OBMI, which is handling architecture for the Rosewood Half Moon Bay, Studio Piet Boon will introduce a new contemporary design by layering influences of traditional Caribbean architecture with a distinctly environmental aesthetic. Both the Rosewood Residences and the interiors of Rosewood Half Moon Bay will use a natural palette and materials with colorful accents.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Studio Piet Boon's use of a natural design palette will flow from the resort to the residences, connecting the spaces to one another and to nature. There will be open concept layouts and immersive living elements throughout the development, reinforcing the natural beauty of Half Moon Bay.

Set to open in 2021, Rosewood Half Moon Bay will have 47 pavilion-style suites, including a three-bedroom presidential suite. It will be flanked by a collection of Rosewood Residences, each designed to showcase views.

Amenities will include private infinity plunge pools, hammocks, open-air baths and shower gardens with live orchid walls.

Half Moon Bay Antigua is currently comprised of 10 land parcels available for sale in the Caribbean. Prices range from $10 million to $25 million. The crown jewel of the estate lots is the Mellon Estate, a three-acre parcel situated on a bluff overlooking the water below, formerly owned by philanthropist Rachel "Bunny" Lambert Mellon

The site of the new Half Moon Bay Antigua development was previously home to Half Moon Bay Resort, built on Antigua in the 1950s. It is located adjacent to a 27-acre national park.
