Anguilla Beach Lovers

Welcome Back to Arawak Beach Club 🤗💗🏝

A warm welcome to Arawak Beach Club who has joined as a Site Sponsor!

Since "day one," Arawak Beach Club has been a favorite spot in Anguilla. Back in 2002, when we first visited the island, we had countless lunches and dinners in the warm company of the Arawak family. Friendly and welcoming, Arawak has always felt like home.

Since those early Arawak days, this resilient property closed after Hurricane Irma in 2017. We all breathed a heavy sigh. The Arawak would be missed.

Fast forward four years later and we are delighted to say...

Arawak is back!

New owners, Judd and Mindie Burdon, are breathing new life into the property. From top-to-bottom room renovations, to adding a brand new restaurant and pool, not only have they restored the spirit of Arawak Beach Club, they are taking the property to new heights.

Step Inside Arawak Beach Club

Painted tropical colors that tickle the spirit, the hotel's cheerful exterior matches its scenic setting overlooking Island Harbour.

The "heart of Anguilla," Island Harbour is a charming fishing village home to some of the island's "bests"...

  • Best bakery: Le Bon Pain
  • Best pizza: Artisan
  • Best crayfish: Nat's Palm Grove (10 minutes away by car)
  • Best beaches: Scilly Cay and Shoal Bay (just a 10 minute drive)
  • Best hike: Windward Point
  • Best offshore cay for exploring: Scrub Island

Less developed than other parts of the island, Island Harbour is a true blue slice of paradise!

Arawak Beach Club takes full advantage of its picture-perfect setting, with multiple areas for lounging and soaking up the Caribbean scenery.

Lush, aromatic gardens weave between the hotel's communal areas. Aloe plants, papaya trees, orchids, sea grape trees and swaying palms all please the eye as you move from the comfortable lounge area in the sand to the waterfront terrace with outdoor dining tables.

When it's time to quench your thirst? The hotel's breezy beach bar with a view of Island Harbour blue calls!

The bar will expand into a full restaurant come winter, and it will be home to Arawak's brand new, sparkling, infinity-edge pool.

With a setting like this, you can shore see Judd & Mindie's vision!
