Reopened in November 2014 after a three-year closure and 18-month total renovation by TAL Studio and SB Architects — to the tune of $80 million — the Malliouhana encompasses 25 acres of landscaped gardens nestled along a mile and a half of white sand beach. The 44 guestrooms and suites, all with private terraces, are splashed with colors inspired by surf, sand and sky — think mint, mango, saffron and white. The open-air clifftop Restaurant at Malliouhana serves sea-to-table specialties such as lobster and conch pizza and house-made pasta with spiny lobster and sea urchin butter. Cozy up to the Sunset Bar, where bartenders mix 40 rums in fruity cocktails, and live music happens several times a week. The two-story Auberge Spa, which features an outdoor meditation garden and a relaxation lounge, incorporates local ingredients into signature treatments such as the Island Drift: a tropical Caribbean rum foot soak, sweet sugarcane body exfoliation and a coconut crème massage. You can also create your own custom oil blends for massages at the Aroma Design Bar.
In the Area
If you’re looking to stay active, the island has a wide variety of sporting opportunities. Saddle up, and book a seaside horseback ride through Seaside Stables Anguilla. Visitors can learn the island’s national sport — sailing — through the Anguilla Sailing Association, which also operates the Anguilla Youth Sailing Club. Links aficionados won’t want to miss the Greg Norman–designed course at the CuisinArt Golf Club, which has gorgeous views of St. Maarten and the sparkling Caribbean Sea.
How to Get There
From the minute we arrived, everything was spectacular. WE really liked the size of the hotel, because it never felt crowded and there was always someone nearby to be of service.
Malliouhana is a beautiful hotel- the grounds, the pools, the lobby, the rooms. THE BEACHES, the views - everything is beautiful. .
The staff smiles 24/7 - they are all friendly and accommodating.
My husband and I just returned from an amazing week at Malliouhana in Anguilla. The resort looks like a postcard with a turquoise sea backdrop. The grounds are well maintained with lovely flowers everywhere. We stayed in an oceanfront junior suite which was so comfortable and had every amenity we needed. Housekeeping kept the room spotless twice a day. Gloria was amazing! There is a mini refrigerator with complementary soda beer and water which was restocked daily. One note - we asked for additional bottles of water rather than soda and were accommodated only one day out of seven. That was disappointing. The gym was well equipped with a good variety of equipment. Most of our time was spent on the beach at Turtle Bay which turned out to be it our own private beach! The pool had plenty of seating and umbrellas for shade during most of the day except late afternoon when the direct sun hit. Service at the pool was very slow and it seemed many times there wasn’t anyone servicing that area at all. We had dinner three times at the hotel - food was delicious especially Taco Tuesday and dinner on July 4th. Again service was slow but food was worth the wait.
We took the Traditions Day Sail to Prickly Pear which was just amazing. Laurie, Debbie and Noah were the perfect hosts. This is an excursion not to miss! We had dinner at Jacala - another place not to miss. Jacque was charming and guided us through our delicious meal selections. We also dined at The Straw Hat. The food was good but service lacked. We noticed our waiter spend much time at a table with customers who had been there before and but barely stopped at our table to check on us. We ate dinner and left to have my birthday dessert elsewhere. There are too many other top restaurants so I would skip this one. Blanchard’s Beach Shack was a great casual place with good burgers. To touch on travel - we flew into Princess Juliana Airport and booked transport to Anguilla with Calypso through the hotel concierge. Don’t waste your money. Not only was the boat overcrowded- the seas were rough, my husband ended up soaking wet by the time we got to Anguilla. For almost the same price you can book a flight on AAS. We rebooked our return on AAS and we’re very happy with the professionalism and safety they demonstrated. Overall we loved our visit to the Malliouhana and plan to return next year with our family.
We had a fantastic stay at the Malliouhana! The last time we visited Anguilla, we stayed at the Four Seasons. Our room at the Four Seasons was wonderful, but the resort was too big for us. We prefer the Malliouhana, as it was a much more exclusive experience. I appreciated the fine details and loved the decor. Kind of like old Hollywood meets beachy chic. We hope to return some day!!
