Anguilla Beach Lovers

Issue #123, November 17, 2019

To beach or not to beach? 🤔💭🏝

In Anguilla, "beach" is always the answer 😁💗⛱

Things have been heating up fast in Anguilla!

CuisinArt, Four Seasons, Malliouhana and Cap Juluca have all opened their doors. With mega weddings, lots of re-openings and plenty of upcoming events, the season is off to a superb start.

What's new since last time?

Lynne Bernbaum's Art Gallery Joins The Anguilla Card

One of Anguilla’s most high-profile artists, Lynne Bernbaum’s work is iconic. Her impressions of Anguilla have captivated the imaginations of many for years. It is no surprise that Lynne’s pieces adorn the walls of celebrity homes and high-end restaurants and villas around the island.

A charming, sweet lady from Texas, Lynne fell in love with Anguilla during her travels to the Caribbean in the '80's. She moved to Anguilla a few years later in 1995, and has been living her dream ever since.

My mom adores Lynne's artwork, how she pictures Anguilla and how she captures the spirit of Anguilla so beautifully. Ms. Bernbaum has a unique, award-winning style, with absolutely fascinating images of Anguilla.

Let's take a peek inside her gallery...

In addition to her Hat Series and classic pieces (the Dominoes and Market Scenes) seen in the photos above, Lynne commissions paintings of the Delicate Bar. A sweet, neighborhood bar right across from her gallery, Lynne has been inspired by the different bar "moments." Whether it is joggers stopping in for a refreshing drink, or a cyclist taking a break with a cool beverage...

Lynne can personalize your Delicate Bar "scene" however your heart desires. With pets, friends, having a chat with the bar owner, jogging past the bar or taking it easy with a drink - Lynne will work with you to develop your Delicate Bar painting. A touching series, we are in love with these paintings! More on Lynne Bernbaum here.

Sandy Island is one of Anguilla's "must-do's!"

NEW Cocktails, Dishes & Desserts at Meze

When it comes to tasty bights, refreshing cocktails and excellent tunes, Meze is a favorite. Set just below Veya, Meze is a go-to for a light evening meal set to some of the best live music on-island.

Chef Carrie has unveiled a NEW menu this year, including one of our FAVORITE cocktails of all time, the Bird of Paradise (left of photo below).

Made with guava, passionfruit, lime and Grey Goose, it exudes tropical flavors!

When it comes to bites, the tzatziki is a classic...

Cool, chunky and fresh tzatziki pairs perfectly with the side of warm flatbread.

What's new for light bites? The steak skewers are not to be missed. For the full effect, dip the steak in the side of guacamole topped with pickled onion!

Another new favorite? The lettuce shrimp wraps...

Seasoned with Moroccan spices, each bite is an explosion of flavor.

Meals at Meze don't end there. Be sure to finish your evening with an after-dinner drink. The Dark n' Fluffy is sinfully delicious...

Made with marshmallow vodka, chocolate liqueur and a splash of cream, it is a dessert in and of itself.

We would be remiss, however, to not mention one of our favorite desserts of all time, Carrie's Key Lime Pie In a Jar.

This dessert is perfect in every way! The cookie crumble in the middle, the hefty cream on top, the key lime on the bottom... it deserves a round of applause.

Meze is open nightly with live music Monday-Saturday.

Opening SOON: Tranquility Beach Anguilla

Tranquility Beach Anguilla has made outstanding progress. The premier Meads Bay project will be opening as a boutique hotel with vacation rentals and ownership opportunities this coming season!

Tranquility Beach's first phase, Signature Suites broke ground early last year. In September 2018, we stepped inside the luxury development with its award-winning architect and developer, Ian "Sugar George" Edwards of Sunset Homes. We were blown away by the progress (click here for our video tour with Sugar George).

Since then? Tranquility Beach Anguilla has impressed us all over again. The developer's extensive experience in the region shows.

First step on-property and you are immediately struck by commanding views and soothing sounds of Anguilla's most coveted beach. Mere steps to Meads Bay's waterline, the property's location is unmatched.

Its setting goes hand in hand with superior design. Sugar George blends modern-cool with tropical-warmth. Outside, wood ceilings contrast elegantly against strong pillars, stone tile and a white color scheme.

Inside, a wave of tranquility envelops you yet again. Through oversized windows, you are wrapped in Meads Bay blue.

That feeling of sumptuous calm carries through each space.

Location, design and furnishings all combine to create a state of the art Meads Bay property.

Nearing completion, Tranquility Beach Anguilla delivers on its promise amidst Anguilla's top tier resorts and restaurants. Tranquility Beach Anguilla will be the epicenter of the epicenter of Caribbean luxury living.

Opening this winter, to book your stay at Tranquility Beach Anguilla visit...
