What Is Happening
With a runway best suited to private jets, Anguilla mixes low-key luxury with some of the Caribbean’s best beaches. On a recent trip to this
island, I was able to see how newcomers Zemi Beach, Four Seasons and The Reef fare alongside the island’s established hotel stars.
A slick resort makes the most of a slightly awkward lozenge-shaped patch of land on the eastern
shore of Shoal Bay. Opened in March 2016, there’s an even split between hotel rooms and
residences. Overall, it’s making a firm stab at the family market, pitching a notch below the Four
Seasons when it comes to price. But there are with plenty of frills; two-bedroom suites have fully
equipped kitchens and their own plunge pools plus dreamy outdoor areas. The only thing that might put
off families – the surf can be quite strong by Anguillan standards. For winding down, the Rhum Bar
is devoted to the Caribbean’s staple drink; there are over 100 on offer. The food was notably good too;
Asian-influenced Stone provides fine dining in the evenings; 20 Knots by the pool is more relaxed and the fish tacos
were the meal highlight. The other standout? The spa. Created around a wooden house brought from Thailand, it stocks cult British
brands ila and Elemental Herbology and delivered the sort of serious-but-soothing massage you’d want but don’t always get in the Caribbean.
Technically, this is more of a reinvention but in taking this project, Four Seasons are putting down a strong marker in a region they’ve
historically been hesitant of (the only other FS in the Caribbean is in St Nevis). Externally, it’s a good fit for the chain, a sculptural space,
serenely placed on Barnes Bay – and on an island that’s just 35 square miles, it feels extraordinarily spacious, with long walkways and 180 rooms
and suites. Externally, little has changed from the building’s Viceroy days, but the interior decor has had a thorough overhaul. It’s now
softer and more thoughtful; its creams and browns aren’t a distraction from the myriad blues and greens of the Anguillan reefs outside, nor one of
Anguilla’s most spectacular infinity pools, on its own peninsula, with two choice beaches. The spa continues the spare-but-contemplative mood but
this is an active resort; tennis courts, a climbing wall and a full range of watersports. The food is generally good, but didn’t feel
particularly distinctive, especially when compared to Zemi or The Reef although I had rave reviews about the sushi from guests I met later in my trip.
Owned by CuisinArt mogul Leandro Rizzuto, the Reef on Merrywing Bay has a stellar position looking towards the neighboring island of St Martin.
Like the original CuisinArt resort further down the beach, the restaurants of The Reef benefit enormously from Rizzuto’s belief in good
ingredients; head chef Jasper Schneider has access to the resort’s hydroponic garden; the only one on the island. His kitchen at Breezes also has
cheffy wishlist items such as a 900-degree pizza oven. There’s also the Yacht Club for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a catwalk-worthy main
swimming pool and a quietly green policy that allows it to supply 12 hours of solar power itself each day (the aim is to be fully self-
sufficient). To be honest, the only caveat is the strange design of the main building. Although they’re spacious and gadget-filled, none of its 50
rooms have balconies or windows that open. Much better to opt for Superior Beachfront rooms and above, where there’s an accent on indoor/outdoor
living in low rise villas by the beach. The Reef backs onto Anguilla’s only golf course and some seriously good restaurants that are also part of
the CuisinArt portfolio.
Think of this as the one that got away; It opened too late for me to do anything but gaze from the outside but decor-wise, it’s essentially been
pared down to just two colours, white and a searing blue to blend in with the swimming pool. meaning there’s little to distract you from the milky
white sand – some of the Caribbean’s best – and the sea. A beachfront restaurant will the gamut from sushi to burgers but relaxation is the main

- Since the first reported cases in the Caribbean more than a year ago, there have to date been only seven (7) confirmed cases of the Zika virus in Anguilla.
- This low number is due in large measure to the great precautions undertaken by both the private and the public sectors in implementing mosquito control measures according to the guidelines laid out by the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
- The Anguillian government continues to be proactive in eliminating mosquito breeding sites, with another round of fogging scheduled to take place in advance of the winter season.
- Hoteliers and villa owners are also going to great lengths to remove standing water, conduct thorough and frequent inspections, and provide guests with mosquito repellant and information to ensure a safe and pleasurable stay in Anguilla.
- Anguilla’s tourism industry is also working with their counterparts in the region and in the USA, e.g. in Florida which has also been adversely affected by the Zika virus, in seeking and sharing information, and implementing best practices for vector control.
- In November 2016 The World Health Organization concluded that Zika no longer presents a public health emergency of international concern. Nevertheless controlling the spread of the virus remains a national priority for Anguilla’s Ministry of Health.
- We encourage all our visitors to always take a preventative stance and in this case, prevention includes:
- Using an insect repellant for insect bites year round. The hotel has implemented preventative measures and will include mosquito repellant in rooms.
- Wearing cool, long-sleeved shirts and pants where possible.
- The Anguillian government and all tourism stakeholders continue to monitor the situation on an ongoing basis, and will keep guests apprised of any changes in our status.
Week-long workshops and programs on tourism.

The program includes a free day on Sunday to ensure that participants will have the opportunity to experience the best of all Anguilla has to offer.

The name of the festival speaks to a very important facet of Anguilla’s cultural heritage–The Jollification. Rhona Richardson-Roydon, a member of the Anguilla Community Foundation, explains the concept of the Jollification as “a getting together of people to share and help neighbors.” This was done through the plowing and planting of ground (fields), all against the backdrop of men working together, women cooking, and children playing, while the work was carried out free of cost with much laughter, singing and “jollification.” Noted economist, historian, author and playwright, Marcel Fahie writes that through the Jollification, “We helped each other with the construction of our homes. Mutual aid and assistance in the form of free labor was also employed to build community facilities, access roads to and from isolated parts of villages, church buildings, community halls and playing fields. The spirit and elements of the jollification survive to this day in various forms. Most notable is the contribution of our time and effort to furthering the programs of our religious and charitable organizations.”
“The Government of Anguilla is pleased to endorse this important event in our island’s calendar,” says Honourable Parliamentary Secretary with responsibility for Tourism and Sports, Mr. Cardigan Connor. “We recognize the value of promoting the development of the literary arts for our people, and especially our young people, who need to be encouraged to channel their youthful energies in more creative ways. We are committed to being a part of an event that appeals not only to our residents but also to visitors in search of authentic island experiences, while at the same time enabling the preservation, celebration and enhancement of our literary heritage as a people.”

Anguilla’s Festival Del Mar, The Caribbean’s Best Seafood Festival
Scheduled for March 26 – 27, 2016
The Valley, Anguilla, February 16, 2016 – If you’re a seafood lover, you’re certainly not alone. Fish and shellfish pulled fresh from the sea is what the Caribbean is known for and what draws visitors from around the world. Anguilla offers the very best seafood in the region and puts these culinary delights on display at its annual Festival Del Mar, to be held on Easter Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and 27, 2016.
Festival Del Mar commemorates Anguilla’s seafaring heritage and celebrates all things of the sea in the beautiful fishing village of Island Harbour, which is located on the eastern tip of the island. This little fishing village has remained largely untouched by tourism and still maintains its local vibe, with colorful boats bobbing in the blue harbor and a fishing pier jutting out to catch schooners and fishing boats, much as it was in the early 1900s.
Sponsored jointly by the community of Island Harbour, the Anguilla Tourist Board and the Ministry of Youth & Culture, Festival Del Mar serves a dual purpose, providing the Anguillian people with the opportunity to celebrate their rich history and offering visitors a window into Anguilla’s unique cultural traditions.
Traditional cooking and culinary competitions, deep sea fishing competitions, swimming races, volley ball exhibitions and crab races are all “on the menu” for this fun-filled celebration, along with two days of live music and boat racing, the island’s national pastime. Local lobster features prominently, as do crab, crayfish, octopus (sea cat), fried fish, and grilled fish of many varieties.
The atmosphere is relaxed and visitors are invited to wear their swimsuits in case they want to take a dip in the sea. There are also plenty of tented areas for lounging out of the sun, and domino games are played throughout the afternoons.
Festival Del Mar is an idyllic way to spend the Easter weekend with friends and family. For more information, visit ivisitanguilla.com, or call 1-264-497-2759 .Posted in Press | Leave a comment
