I absolutely love the CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa. I visited again in December 2013 with my colleague Alex Yates, and the resort (built by the CuisinArt appliance owner) has stood up to my memory of my stellar visit 2 years prior. General Manager, Stephane Zaharia, is still at the helm; and his attention to detail, and general care for all items, no matter how small, is seen everywhere. I think this beach at RendezVous Bay is probably the best I’ve ever been on – white powder sand. (I walked out to my shoulders in pure powder, with nary a rock that I remember). Attentive beachfront service for guests, great food at Cafe Mediterraneo and Santorini’s (under the care of new executive chef Jasper Schneider) as well as new Japanese restaurant – 5 restaurants in total on property (and meal plans available if you wish – the art is in the cuisine!); Greg Norman golf course, tennis courts, perhaps the largest spa in the Caribbean, hydroponic gardens; and a 100 yards down the beach from Dune Preserve and Bankie Banx (which CNN Traveler has touted as the best beach bar in the world). This is a destination resort all by itself, but with only 105 rooms, doesn’t feel like it will dwarf you like some of the mega-resorts in other parts of the Caribbean. Of course, Anguilla itself is only 3 x 16 miles large, and there are no all inclusive resorts, chain hotels, fast food establishments, etc – yet there are 125 restaurants around the island for you to experience fantastic dining – everything from “feet in the sand” Smokey’s to fine dining at Blanchard’s. (I send some “foodie” clients again and again.) I also think this is probably the best family resort for reconnecting and having an authentic holiday together. (As well as couples – the tv show, “The Bachelor,” filmed here one year, and CuisinArt has also been named a top honeymoon destination as well.) There’s also free wifi too for those that have to stay plugged in. Go! Visit CuisinArt.
