This Luxury Resort in Anguilla Might Actually Be Heaven on Earth
Nowhere does a vacation feel quite so much like an escape from the chaos of everyday as in Anguilla, a gem nestled in the turquoise expanse of the Caribbean Sea.
While the island has no shortage of luxury accommodations, Malliouhana, An Auberge Resort, is definitely the cream of the crop. After a short stay here, indulging in its friendly opulence and exquisite beauty, you’ll have a hard time believing you haven’t died and gone to heaven. Here’s why.
The whole resort sits on a bluff overlooking the azure waters and sugary white sands of Meads Bay, one of the world’s most exquisite beaches.
The property is set in a veritable Garden of Eden: 25 acres of lush, meticulously landscaped gardens that will leave you breathless.
Because of the topography and location of the island, Anguilla is one of the sunniest spots in the Caribbean, with incredible weather all year long. Even the rainy season is mostly sunny.
While most of the Caribbean has undergone extensive development to accommodate large numbers of tourists, Anguilla is one of the last unspoiled gems in this part of the world.
The Restaurant at Malliouhana offers a sea-to-table menu inspired by flavors of the Mediterranean, and the resort’s acclaimed Food of Place program ensures a steady flow of special guest chefs and themed cuisine.
The pool area is spectacular: Every evening, you can catch a breathtakingly unobstructed view of the sun setting over the ocean from the resort’s double infinity pool.
You can start your day with a beachside yoga class or book a private session right in your guestroom.
Celebrities love the island for its quiet, calm and lack of crowds, and flock here to escape the prying lenses of paparazzi. Don’t be surprised to find yourself dining next to Justin Timberlake, Denzel Washington or Beyonce.
