The Caribbean is chock-full of incredible islands, many of them more famous than tiny Anguilla – but that’s about to change. This sun-kissed isle offers everything you want from a tropical holiday: powdery white beaches, shimmering coral seas, and five-star facilities with service to match.
Travel right now is all about finding a destination that cares for your safety while providing as unrestricted an experience as possible. In this regard, Anguilla is one of the very best. There are currently no active cases on the island – and they plan to keep it that way! As of this writing, negative PCR tests are required to arrive, and another is taken at the airport – but once those results come back, you are essentially free to do as you please! The island utilizes a “bubble” system for hotel guests, who can enjoy various activities and restaurants that have been selected for inclusion. You won’t be cooped up at one single resort…but if you happen to stay at any of our three favorites, you probably won’t mind!
Luxury Beach Resorts: Marvelous Malliouhana
When it comes to pure style, nothing on the island matches the essence of Malliouhana. This property is part of the Auberge Resorts Collection, known worldwide for their locally inspired properties, and it embodies the warmth and sunshine of Anguilla in every respect. Accommodations exude an understated glamour that meshes perfectly with the laid-back island vibe. Soft pastel colors and plenty of space are found in every room, suite, and villa, with expansive private terraces to soak in the sea breeze.
Malliouhana’s shared spaces are consistent in this balance of comfort and luxury. Three restaurants provide a perfect blend of options: Celeste with its elegant Mediterranean-Caribbean dishes, Leon’s right on the shores of Mead’s Bay Beach, and Bar Soleil with its sumptuous divans and delicious cocktails. Golfers will love the proximity of Anguilla’s only championship-level golf course, mere minutes from the resort. And when the day winds down, settle with your loved ones by the dug-out fire pit on the beach to roast s’mores and watch the colors change across the ocean horizon.
Luxury Beach Resorts: Four Seasons Families
A short five-minute drive west lies the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla. This sprawling property is built up on a bluff, overlooking the white sand beach and the Caribbean Sea. Nearly every unit has ocean views – a bad choice is nearly impossible! While there are single rooms to book, the resort’s strength are its suites, townhomes, and residences. These multi-bedroom options are gorgeous homes for a vacation of any length, and make this property perfect for families, no matter the size.
This family-friendly ethos extends to the activities and services available on-property. The “Kids for All Seasons” program offers complimentary activities for children aged 5-12, with a huge array of indoor and outdoor supervised fun to be had. Babysitting services are easily arranged, to give parents a little time off to soak up the sunshine in peace. Older kids can brush up their skills or learn new ones with tennis, sailing, and even kitesurfing instruction. There’s even a family-friendly bamboo pool! If you’re traveling with family or even a group of friends, the Four Seasons will provide for every want and need.
Luxury Beach Resorts: Jewels of Cap Juluca
Cross over to the southern coast of the island, and you’ll find the dreamy Cap Juluca. Part of the renowned Belmond collection, this resort epitomizes the stunning relaxation that Anguilla is renowned for. It all starts with its gorgeous beach; you might simply settle into your lounger and never leave! If you’re the type of traveler who loves nothing more than spending days with your toes in the sand, look no further than Cap Juluca. Yet the property is much more than just a beautiful beach.
Suites and private villas offer refreshing respite from the sun, with gleaming white exteriors and spacious pools. There are plenty of fabulous experiences to fill your days; a trip to the offshore Prickly Pear Cays, with beaches and coral reefs galore, is a real treat! A number of elegant dining options provides something for every taste, highlighted by Pimms, serving tasteful Caribbean favorites in a lovely waterside atmosphere. Of course, no special occasion is complete with a private dining experience – only you and your loved one under the stars, with a multi-course menu designed just for the two of you. Romance comes naturally here on Anguilla!
