Where to stay in Anguilla

Posted in HOTELS + VILLAS By Maggie O' Sullivan

Bringing some welcome sunshine into our lives this month and next is BBC2's new series of An Island Parish, this time set in Anguilla. If the programmes inspire you to visit, here’s where to stay.

With its Moorish-style cuppolas and horseshoe arches, Cap Jaluca, above, on Anguilla’s southwest coast, is one of my favourites. It’s romantic, secluded and very private and has justifiablly earned itself a string of awards as long as your arm. From £344 per night in low season.The former Viceroy resort in Meads and Barnes Bays was taken over by Four Seasons in 2016 and is one of only two Four Seasons in the Caribbean (the other is in Nevis). The contemporary resort includes a selection of opulent rooms, suites and villas, five restaurants and lounges and three spectacular pools, including the infinity 'Sunset' pool. All this and the legendary Four Seasons service. From £383 per night in low season.Malliouhana is part of the Auberge Resorts Collection (properties include Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley, Hotel Jerome in Aspen and Esperanza in Cabo San Lucas) and has sat on its idyllic West Coast bluff for more than 30 years. Food is among the best on the island, served in a lovely, semi-open restaurant. The rum is pretty good here, too – there’s even an in-house rummelier. From around £275 per night in low season.Anguilla’s newest hotel, The Manoah Ocean Beach Club opened at the end of last year on the site of the former Ku boutique hotel on Shoal Bay. The paint is barely dry but the 25-room, St Tropez-style Manoah will definitely be one to watch in 2017. From £285 per night in low season.CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa, in Rendezvous Bay, is one of Anguilla’s best hotels, famous for its fine dining and culinary activities. Last year the team behind CuisinArt opened The Reef by CuisinArt, a contemporary beachfront oasis on Merrywing Bay. Like The Manoah, The Reef is too new to call but with its provenance, it’s sure to be a success. From £394 per night in low season. If you’re after more privacy, consider renting a villa. The first time I visited 10 years ago, I stayed at Altamer, a collection of three stunning villas designed by modernist architect Myron Goldfinger (a fourth villa has since been added). Recently renovated, the ultra-luxurious villas can be rented individually or as a whole and though they aren’t cheap, they do include the 24-hour services of a butler and a chef. Villas sleep 10-16; from around £24,243 per week in low season.
