Best Anguilla Resorts

Updated: Mar 21, 2023

Here are the BEST resorts in Anguilla.

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla

When you arrive in Anguilla, the stresses of everyday life are left far behind. Set along the island’s northwest shore, this resort is a place to make memories with friends and family. Settle into one of our spacious accommodations – 80 percent with ocean views – and fill your days with water sports, relaxing pool time and exotic dining experiences.

It is one of the most modern property on this tiny island -- and arguably the most luxurious. The Kelly Wearstler-designed resort manages to mix an upscale look with a laid-back, beachy feel, and features sleek lines, modern amenities, numerous art installations, earth tones, animal prints, and wood, stone, and gold accents. This look continues through the 166 rooms, which have romantic balconies as well as marble bathrooms with separate showers and soaking tubs. Though the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla certainly attracts couples, the resort features a kids' club and teen's club, and families can be seen splashing around in the pools and heading to the tennis courts.

Malliouhana, Auberge Resort

When it opened over 30 years ago, Malliouhana put Anguilla on the map as the romantic getaway. The oceanfront resort continues to set the standard for modern day island glamour set atop a bluff that rolls down to pristine white sands and azure-blue sea. From vibrant island cuisines to Carribean seaside adventures, the Malliouhana family brings the magic of Anguilla to your doorstep. Add in new offerings including spacious beachfront accommodations, a cascading infinity pool that seems to drop off into the sea below, and a beach bar that epitomizes toes-in-the-sand. You'll find a well-stocked gym if you need to work off your indulgences, though the spa makes an equally convincing case for self care.

The star of the show here are the grounds and setting, though. Malliouhana is filled with blossoming flowers and tropical fruit trees, and the hotel offers free garden tours that are surprisingly interesting. Of course, the clifftop setting means that views of the ocean are stunning, especially at sunset (and the resort is designed to optimize these views). Malliouhana’s guests are mostly American couples and families -- the latter are especially common around school holiday times in the U.S., so if you're after maximum quiet pick your dates accordingly.

Cap Juluca, A Belmond Hotel

Cap Juluca is a dream-like escape, spread across the Caribbean’s most beautiful beach. Feel the breeze blowing across your private terrace. Every room is a beachfront haven. Be positioned to discover an island famed for pristine sands, broad coral reefs and an unmissable culinary scene. Or simply breathe the sea air, relax, and let the hours float by.

The glamorous and idyllic resort offers Belmond’s world-class service and is considered to have the best beach in the Caribbean. Capturing the charisma, character and charm of the Caribbean, Belmond Cap Juluca recently completed extensive renovations of its 23-whitewashed Moorish villas, taking the already impeccable resort to an even higher standard of excellence.

The romantic atmosphere makes this resort popular for honeymoons and destination weddings. Facilities include a small fitness center and an extensive water-sports pavilion (all on-site water sports are included). Spa services can be provided in the privacy of your accommodations, and a daily activities like beach fitness and nature walks tempt you to leave your beach chaise.

Cuisinart Resort

Closed until October 28 2021

Escape to your oasis with views overlooking the crystal clear, turquoise Rendezvous Bay. A fresh bright interior with Caribbean accents wait for you to unwind and relax during your luxurious stay. The bright blue pool provides a level of relaxation and fun for all the guests, with direct beach views and access. Experience local island inspired cuisine and sip beach cocktails at the multitude of outlets on property.

The CuisinArt, one of the best-known resorts in Anguilla, is a sprawling beachfront property dotted by white, Grecian-like buildings. It features numerous amenities, from an extensive spa to the only golf course on the island, but the real standout here (not surprisingly given its CuisinArt ownership) is the food; several on-site restaurants offer gourmet meals with a focus on fresh ingredients from the resort's hydroponic farm, and guests can nosh on Japanese, Italian, or Mediterranean fare. Though the hotel manages to exude an upscale vibe through its beautiful open layout and luxurious services, rooms don't feel quite up to par: Tiled floors and somewhat kitschy island decor leaves them feeling dated, despite modern features such as flat-screen TVs and free Internet access. At least partial ocean views can be seen from each of the 91 suites and seven villas, however, and the nice beach offers activities such as non-motorized water sports and snorkeling.
