Alluring Anguilla

10629807_10152802021775695_1211682480747549005_n (1)I recently got to break bread with Dale Pusching of the Anguilla Tourism Board.  Any time I meeting Dale and talking about Anguilla there’s fun to be had – and – of course, dining at Juniper’s under chef Norm Aitken’s watchful eye was a real treat!  (Thanks for pictures, Janet Lavern!)

We had a wonderful nosh as we chatted about everything that is new in Anguilla.

For starters, Malliouhana is re-opening, now branded as an Auberge resort.  How wonderful to see the 4th 5* property on this tiny 3 x 16 mile island come back to us.  Malliouhana rejoins CuisinArt, Cap Juluca, and the Viceroy as the four queens of this island.

Of course, there are plenty of villas, and 3 and 4 * properties as well.

And restaurants!  Oh boy. No all inclusive hotel vacations to be found on Anguilla – with a population that is just over 13,000 , this island boasts of some of the best food in the Caribbean, and has 125 restaurants to choose from. You can dine anywhere from a feet in the sand beach barbecue like Smokey’s to fine dining at Blanchard’s or Santorini’s or Jacula’s.  There are so many options.

And… did I mention the beaches?

Don’t you think it’s time for a visit to this pristine little island?

Anguilla has no cruise ships, no chain hotels, no fast food restaurants, no jet skis, no crowds – but – the best beaches in the world, some of the finest restaurants in the world, and world-class hotels that consistently make Conde Nast’s gold list year after year.  (Plus, Cap Juluca, CuisinArt, and Viceroy are Virtuoso partners of mine – so I can VIP you, and negotiate special amenities on your behalf.)

Contact me so you can get away to this fantastic island.  I am a CATS (Certified Anguilla Travel Specialist) and I can find the right getaway for you!
