With its sleek architecture, glamorous Kelly Wearstler-design, rows of palm trees, and open-air Sunset Lounge, the Four Seasons Anguilla exudes an LA-meets-the-Caribbean vibe. The 35-acre oceanfront resort offers a spectacularly beautiful backdrop with two distinct beaches, cliffside pools, and killer ocean views at every turn, whether you are getting a spa treatment or eating breakfast at Coba. Rooms are done in soothing tones with gold accents, and oversized bathrooms in travertine marble with deep soaking tubs and separate showers. Villas, set by the quieter Barnes Bay beach, offer a distinct experience from the rest of the resort: the Four-Bedroom Villas are roomy at over 4,700 square feet with a central living space, kitchen, dining area, and four ensuite bedrooms laid out to ensure privacy. If you can tear yourself away from your private pool and view, head down to the Half Shell Beach Bar for lobster rolls and a Dean Supreme Cocktail. Don’t miss the Sunset Lounge, where Instagram-worthy sunset views, sushi bites, and rum cocktails await.
In the Area
Anguilla is known as much for its restaurants as its beaches, and many of the island’s best foodie spots are can be reached by walking from the Four Seasons down Mead’s Bay beach. Be sure to visit the French-Caribbean restaurant Jacala, loved for its candlelit Moroccan-inspired backdrop, or the cheery, beachfront Straw Hat. If you only go to one restaurant on your stay, make it Blanchard’s for food you will be dreaming about on your return flight back. At the far end of the mile-long beach is the cliffside resort Malliouhana—a lovely spot for a sunset cocktail.
How to Get There
Although this was my first time visiting Angulla, it will probably not be my last. The Four Seasons Anguilla is a beautiful property that illustrates the idea of a "relaxing vacation". Great property! Picturesque views! Wonderful accommodations! Great Staff!
My expectations were high given the very high prices of the resort. The room was spectacular as was housekeeping. Breakfast buffet was good; the fruit market was outstanding. The main pool was nice and never crowded. However, there were a little too many disappointments for me to give 5 stars. I had to ask 3 times over a 24 hour period to get bathrobes. Sometimes we had good service. Other times, we were virtually ignored, like our last day at the pool. It took 25 minutes and 3 requests to remind them about a single drink. We went to the sushi lounge on our last night. Waitress ignored us and I had to hunt for someone to pay. Sushi was good, menu was very limited. We also ate at the casual grill restaurant. Mahi Mahi and fried chicken was $100 and below average. Food and drink offerings were very expensive, choices limited and the offerings were just ordinary.Taxis are ridiculously expensive. The resort should have a shuttle service, even if it's not free, it would be convenient. You are taken to property's front entrance by golf cart and that's it. We went to a fantastic Mexican restaurant off property which was a 3 minute walk, which was not ideal for 2 females having to walk in the road with part of the road completely dark and devoid of streetlights. Same thing with going to another good restaurant; paid $40 for a taxi or could walk back on a pitch black beach. Finally, in traveling back to St. Martin there should be a package that the resort offers - hotel to airport.
Had an excellent stay at the resort. Everything about the property was great but best part was the service. The employees were very friendly and provided great attention all around. Would highly recommend this resort. Great location, great beaches and lots of fun things to do.
