Summer Special at Tranquility Beach Anguilla

Tranquility Beach Anguilla has a sumptuous special this summer!

Relax in a three-bedroom Penthouse Villa at the price of their two-bedroom suites. Spanning the entire third level, their Penthouse Suites are an oasis of calm! They accommodate up to eight guests and your stay includes Tranquility Beach's TripAdvisor-awarded service.

At Tranquility Beach you have the comforts of home, the space of a private villa and the five-star service of a boutique resort, all on one of the World's 50 Best Beaches™ 2023!

The hotel's glowing reviews say it all. Here is just one example...

The staff at Tranquility Beach was AMAZING! I wanted to give them 5 stars before we even arrived. They arranged car rental reservations, scheduled pick up from the Anguilla port to the property, arranged a day trip to Scilly Cay, and scheduled a private chef – all before we arrived.

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the lovely staff Deanna, Denise, Abiel, and Kemeisha with cool towels and delicious rum punch. Throughout our stay they were easily accessible through WhatsApp which was so convenient.

The décor is luxurious with high-end appliances with washer/dryer. Even the bath towels were special (I forgot to save the name so I could purchase them for my home).

We took full advantage of the hot tub which was very relaxing. The view was breathtaking with sunsets that looked like a dream.

During our stay, we walked to nearby restaurants on the beach, drove to different beaches, ate at high end restaurants but also places where locals ate (thank you Sam!), danced the night away at Moonsplash and the one thing that remained constant was that Anguillan people are the kindest, most welcoming people.

Thank you Deanna and staff for making my husband's birthday the best ever! We truly appreciate it. You all have exceeded our expectations and we will be back again soon.

To Book Your Stay at Tranquility Beach Anguilla...

NEW Foodie Favorite: Taverna

Ever since I can remember, Arawak Beach Club has been one of our favorite places for a bite and a "lime" amidst the beautiful sea breeze of Island Harbour.

New owners Mindie and Judd have brought those warm, feel-good vibes back with Arawak's new restaurant, Taverna...

A tapas eatery with Mediterranean flair, Taverna strikes a magical note come night time. Palm trees sway over ahead, the tradewinds blow through keeping you cool, the fishing boats bob in the distance...

Lit up with twinkling lights, the restaurant glows!

The best way to start an evening at Taverna? With a rum punch...

Potent yet light in flavor, and not overly sweet, Taverna's rum punch is a knock out. Our hats go off to cocktail whiz, Sunra Banx!

Owners Mindie and Judd have crafted a tempting tapas menu after their own hearts. Lovers of Mediterranean cuisine, this menu is sure to capture your heart, too.

A number of small plates for sharing make up the menu. We recommend starting with the crispy calamari...

When it comes to classic Greek fare, try the Shrimp Saganaki...

One of Taverna's signature dishes, shrimp is simmered in a zesty tomato sauce with white wine and finished with feta cheese and fresh dill. Wholesome and warm, this dish will have your tastebuds humming a happy tune!

Another winning dish? The Keftedes...

This dish is fragrant! The aroma will have your mouth watering before the plate is placed in front of you. Lamb and beef meatballs are marinated in aromatic herbs and topped with olive oil and feta. So flavorful and perfectly cooked, you may want to order two plates for the table.

My hat goes off to owners Mindie and Judd who have created a menu and cultivated a vibe that will have you coming back time and time again.

Welcome to Keenie's Boutique!

After browsing, it wasn't long before I fell in love with one of their selections...

Now we know where to go to get our fix.

From the swimwear, to the beachwear, beach bags, skin care and home goods...

A word of warning of necessary: You will not be able to leave Keenie's Boutique without a few goodies! ;-)
