Anguilla Beach Lovers

Issue #101, November 2, 2016

That time of the year is upon us here in Anguilla! High season is just around the corner.

This year marks several big changes, including the opening of new hotels The Reef, Manoah and Four Seasons Anguilla. With Seaborne Airlines flying to Anguilla daily from San Juan, it is sure to be an exciting season.

Until it all begins, let's take a moment to breathe in. Breathe out. And do nothing but enjoy tranquility wrapped in blue...

An uncharacteristically calm start to fall, the south side of Anguilla put on quite a show this October!

From all angles, Maunday's Bay took our breath away.

Little Bay dazzled the eye, too, with its pale blues...

Let's see what's new...

Welcome NEW Site Sponsor, Nails R Hair

I am excited to announce that locally-loved beauty salon, Nails R Hair has joined as a Site Sponsor!

Anguilla's "favorite" beauty salon, Nails R Hair is known and loved island-wide.

Always hopping, the salon is famous for its one-of-a-kind hair styles (including corn rows and a variety of braids)...

Trendy Side Braids

A Full Weave in a Funky Bun

... and intricate nail designs.

The warm and light-hearted Nails R Hair team offers manicures, pedicures, braids and even massages and facials.

When it comes to pedicures, Anna takes good care of you as you sink into the plush leather massage chair. She strikes a soothingly-warm temperature and then on come the jets. Professional and kind, ask for Anna.

The extra-special part?...

If it's privacy and calm you seek, Nails R Hair's A+ quality can also be enjoyed in the comfort of your villa, too!

Carimar, As You've Never Seen It Before

Set on magnificent Meads Bay, Carimar Beach Club's setting is second to none!...

We recently "flew over" Carimar and its slice of paradise on Meads Bay.

Tranquil Beach Retreat at Tequila Sunrise Villa

The luxury Anguilla villa that offers it all, Tequila Sunrise Villa is a favorite for many reasons. Its plush suites that gaze out to St. Martin and the Caribbean Sea, daily breakfast and caring housekeeper, Heather, and who can forget the unlimited ice-cold Patron!

Perhaps most special of all is the picture-perfect cove that lies just a 2 minute walk from the villa...

We recently re-visited this tranquil cove and fell in love all over again. Ripe with excellent beginner snorkeling, it is heavenly!...

There is no denying the beauty of this secret cove that Tequila Sunrise calls home!

Introducing The Reef by CuisinArt

The countdown is on. Come November 10th, The Reef by CuisinArt will open its doors and re-define Anguilla luxury.

Set on Merrywing Bay (to the west of Rendezvous Bay), this stretch of coastline has long caught the eye of big name developers. Sweeping vistas, exclusive sandy shorelines and a particular curve of land that always catches a cooling sea breeze. It is not hard to see why Temenos and St. Regis pursued a project here in the mid-2000's.

Taken over by CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa in 2013, its sister property, The Reef delivers on the promise of this magnificent setting. In addition to all of the usual amenities you would expect, three unique features set it apart...

Click here for the sneak pre-opening peek at The Reef!

That's all for now. The bustling has begun and everyone is gearing up for an exciting 2016/2017 season. Stay tuned for updates from around Anguilla and the latest on the NEW Anguilla Card :-)

Sending sunny wishes from Anguilla,
