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
My son and daughter-in-law had their wedding at Malliouhana, an Auberge Resort in Anguilla I’m July 2019. I loved everything about the hotel. The rooms were all beautiful. Our large family all thought they had the best room. When does that happen. The staff was the most helpful, efficient and friendly. I would say the service was extraordinary by everyone. The food from breakfast to dinner was delicious. We stayed several days and the service continued to be excellent. The beach was fun and the pool absolutely delightful. The wedding was gorgeous with the ocean backdrop and dinner fabulous. Dancing under the stars was the best until the fireworks announced the end. The fireworks were crazy. Wow!!! What a venue for a wedding. If you want a casual, intimate and elegant affair, the Malliouhana is perfect for you.
Spectacular from the moment you pull up to the lobby. The mirrored mosaic marble floor, the antique diving helmets and yellow ruffled beach umbrellas set an eclectic tone for a resort that is many things wrapped into one. It is extremely high end featuring 5 star service and amenities. It is also casual and down to earth with an incredible array of poolside cocktails. The Soleil-Rita with don julio reposado, cointreau, passion fruit, lime, citrus-passion flower espuma can spark a fire in an otherwise lazy afternoon. One hits the third and fourth quicker than one realizes.
We were travelling with our two tweens which worked out to be equally appropriate to visiting as honeymooners or frequent returning couples. The beach on Meads bay is spectacular -- crystal clear turquoise water and some of the softest sand we have ever walked on. The resort has complimentary snorkle gear, SUP, sailboats and more. The pools and cabanas are beautiful, quiet, pristine and yet they feature a European rustic style.
I recommend this property profusely. Thank you to the tremendous staff for making our stay so memorable. The service was exceptional. While I love Anguilla, there is really no reason to leave the grounds of this resort during your visit to the island.
We loved every second of our stay at Malliouhana. Every staff member went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and well taken care of. The breakfast service was some of the best we have ever had. They treated our toddler son as their own and had a special plate of "mango" prepared for him every morning.
The beaches are out of this world and the color of the water rival that of the Maldives.
Highly recommend this boutique location with very attention to making sure guests feel welcomed and part of the family.
