Four Seasons Anguilla
Teetering atop a rocky outcrop on the north-west shores of Anguilla Island, overlooking heavenly beaches and sparkling seas, the Four Seasons Anguilla is sublime, an example of the ultimate in Caribbean resorts. Just a short drive from the island airport and ferry, well-drilled and cheerful Four Seasons staff will be ready and waiting to welcome you in, ensuring that from the moment you set foot on the hotel’s cool Italian marble floors; every possible need will be attentively met.
Natural fibres, wooden flooring and neutral tones surround you at the Four Seasons Anguilla, as the stunning natural scenery of the coast replaces the need for fussy décor, just the odd carefully placed piece of art or sculpture to complement the somewhat minimalist, contemporary vibe of this tranquil Caribbean escape. Tucked away on the edge of the island, Four Seasons Anguilla is a sanctuary, where you can seek out as much privacy as you wish with gardens to meander through, two private beaches and several pools – including an adult-only infinity pool complete with spectacular sea views. What’s more, is that a huge array of tempting accommodation choices, ranging from one to five-bedroom villas complete with a private pool, suites, beachfront and ocean view studios, to name a few, allows the type of tailored holiday experience that will suit you perfectly. All the while, you’ll be lounging in the lap of well-crafted luxury whether on a couple’s break in a private studio for two, or away with family and needing that multi-bedroom villa and pool; the grounds here are heavenly, manicured and fitting of the Four Seasons brand.
Make your way down to the flawless bay below and take some time to snorkel, marvelling at the kaleidoscope of colourful fish and other marine life that inhabits the precious coral just off Anguilla’s shore. Meanwhile at the Four Seasons pool, pristine, inviting sun loungers and daybeds await you with optional cabanas and attendants – should you need them who are only too happy to subtly supply drinks, cool towels and anything else that makes your afternoon all the easier. For active types, the gym is open 24 hours a day, personal trainers will assist with anything you need, create a bespoke plan and help you keep in shape while away, working off the gourmet cuisine served in each of the three fine dining restaurants.
If travelling with little ones, an extensive kids’ club caters for small children right through to teenagers and provides a vast array of activities to keep young minds busy all day long. This leaves adults to immerse themselves into the coastal-themed spa, indulging in a holistic massage treatment or detox therapy, many of which use locally sourced ingredients, meaning you effortlessly benefit from the natural goodness of this wonderful coastal region. In fact, if your time by the picturesque pool becomes too comfortable to move, a therapist will happily visit and give you a facial or salon treatment at your lounger, with nothing but the sound of water lapping at the pool’s edge for company.
Once each blissful day does finally draw to a close, enjoy exquisite seafood at Coba, a restaurant with truly enviable views, or wind down in one of the lounge bars – perhaps on an outdoor table while you sip a refreshing cocktail or two. As you do, the soft beats of reggae gently drift over the air as the sun sets, an ever-changing work of art will unfold on the glistening Caribbean waters below; a truly iconic Anguilla experience.
