Anguilla's Best Resorts & Hotels
Anguilla has some of the most luxurious hotels and resorts in the entire Caribbean, and they regularly place on lists of readers’ favorites in the region.
The island has 33 amazing beaches spanning around its 35 square-miles, so we definitely know where you’ll be spending your days in the Caribbean beach paradise known as Anguilla. But since you can’t sleep on the sand, here are some of our favorite places to stay in Anguilla: the top Anguilla hotels. These are the best places to stay in Anguilla, from chic boutique hotel stays to beach front luxury resorts: the best Anguilla resorts.
Belmond Cap Juluca is where beach-chic meets island escapism! Poised to reopen in November after a $121 million overhaul, this iconic property runs the entire length of Maundays Bay, arguably Anguilla’s best beach. Take relaxation to the next level at the most exclusive sanctuary on the pristine shores of Anguilla. Belmond is keeping the hotel’s white, Moorish-inspired villas, which dot the shoreline; the interior rooms, however, are being entirely overhauled.
Feel the breeze blowing across your private terrace—every room is a beachfront haven. Be positioned to discover an island famed for pristine sands, broad coral reefs and an unmissable culinary scene. Or simply breathe the sea air, relax, and let the hours float by. A Peruvian restaurant and Cips, an Italian spot from the Cipriani family of restaurants, is also in the works.
Nestled in the crescent curve of Anguilla’s Rendezvous Bay, CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa is a five-star beachfront resort on the unspoiled Caribbean island of Anguilla. A luxury icon since opening in 1999, the resort is now readying to mark its triumphant return following Hurricane Irma with property-wide upgrades and enhanced golf, wellness, design and amenities. Holding true to its roots, CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa offers luxurious beachfront accommodations and private luxury villas along Rendezvous Bay. The resort’s instantly recognizable whitewashed architecture, inspired by the Greek island of Mykonos, creates a visually stunning contrast against sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea beneath brilliant blue skies. The resort’s crown jewels include the 18-hole Greg Norman designed golf course, the Spa by CuisinArt, world-class dining at five distinct restaurants, and the first ever resort-based Hydroponic Farm.
The Four Seasons, voted No. 12 in the region by T+L readers in the 2018 World’s Best Awards, sits between two beaches: Meads and Barnes Bay. The sleek décor (think marble walls and floors, brass fixtures, and driftwood tables) comes courtesy of Kelly Wearstler, who decorated the property when it debuted years back as a Viceroy.
The property has aged well, and now that Four Seasons has taken over, a fantastic kids club has been added, and the team is especially attentive to young children. Beyond the attentive service, food is a major selling point: the kitchen knows how to do everything from simple pizzas and a crab sandwich on fresh Johnny cakes to elaborate platters of sushi and seared rib-eye steak.
Malliouhana, one of Anguilla’s most iconic luxury properties, is set to re-open on December 15, 2018! After the passing of Hurricane Irma last year, the property has been fully restored and updated. Each of the 46 oceanfront rooms has been brought back to life, and exciting new additions have been made including an expanded pool area, new beachfront bar, a new restaurant experience and a transformation of the famous Sunset Bar, long known as Anguilla’s best spot to watch the sunset.
In early 2019, the resort will also unveil a vibrant new two-bedroom beachfront villa, new beachfront and garden suites, an expansion of the Auberge Spa including six new treatment rooms and ocean-view pool, and an all-new meeting and gathering space just off the lobby with stunning ocean views.
Ranked No. 15 in the region in Travel + Leisure’s 2018 World’s Best Awards, Zemi Beach House first opened in 2016, and quickly began to earn a loyal fan base thanks to its prime location on Shoal Bay East — one of Anguilla’s best beaches — and its modern décor, which blends island colors with furniture and decorations from Asia.
Though the resort has only 65 rooms, there are a slew of amenities that make it feel much larger: two pools, multiple restaurants, a fancy rum bar, a shop, a tennis court, and a kids club. One of the highlights is the spa, set in centuries-old teahouses and a rice barn imported from Thailand. It is a must: you can indulge in everything from a grapefruit and rosemary muscle melt to a guarana and green tea body wrap, and spend extra time soaking in the vitality pool.
