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
The reason I can’t give the Four Seasons Anguilla five stars is because I am comparing it to the Rosewood Mayakoba which is a 5 star experience.
What makes this hotel special though is the staff hands down. Everyone from our housekeeper Sandra to all the pool and beach staff, they were all incredible, extremely friendly, and a joy to be around.
The resort is beautiful and given all the options, three pools and two beaches, each day can be a different experience.
The food at all the restaurants is excellent!
Here is what I think the resort can do to improve:
1) Given the price and the luxury Four Seasons name they should include a butler service
2) During the turndown service they should leave you a little something. At Caneel Bay it is a little shell with a little card with a quote at Mayakoba it was little hand painted wooden animals. It just adds a nice touch.
3) there should be speakers in the room. We had trouble connecting our devices to the television
4) what bummed me out which isn’t the fault of the hotel and maybe because of the time of year but I couldn’t really go into the ocean. While Meads Bay is gorgeous it was so rough that it was scary at times.
I can’t say it enough. What makes this property is the staff. I know I will return and can’t wait to see everyone again!
This resort is is a great escape. The beaches are well maintained and easy to get to. The food is excellent, never had a problem with any of our meals. The Sunset lounge in particular has some fun Asian inspired dishes. We ate quite a bit at the resort due to the crazy cab fares (even by NYC standards) to leave the resort. The backbone of the resort, the staff, make it all the worthwhile to visit— incredibly gracious and outgoing. The only drawback was no Bluetooth speakers in the room. I suggest if you like music bring your own portable speakers. There is an option to play over the TV, but our devices could not connect to the system.
Literally perfect. Relaxing. Elegant. Simple. The staff was engaging & genuine. The property was immaculate. The food was culinary artistry. The transfers were seemless. The pool, spa, gym facilities were picture perfect
This place gets better and better! Love relaxing by the bamboo pool during the day walking down to the sea for a snorkel around the front of Koba, the fish life around there is the best I’ve ever seen it. The little samples of food and drink they serve during the day are amazing as were the staff, Jackie was a real highlight and looked after us everyday, making sure we never ran out of water or left wanting for anything. The sunset pool and deck are the place to be late afternoon to watch the sunset while sampling the cocktails. The BBC was a real winner this trip. We eat at bamboo a couple of times and the burger never disappoints. Half shell is a great place to eat while looking out over the Caribbean Sea. The sunset bar menu is excellent with my favourite either being the California crab rolls or sliders, I can’t make that decision. We cant wait to come back.
Went to Anguilla to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The Four Seasons was as close to perfect as you can get! From the food, to the accommodations, to the staff (especially the people who work here) our trip was excellent. The resort is large but so beautiful that we did not mind the walk to the restaurants or beach. The accommodations are beautiful, large and kept spotlessly clean. The concierge and staff gave us restaurant recommendations and those places had outstanding food. The breakfast buffet at the hotel's restaurant had everything you could want and had gluten-free pastries! Sunset Lounge even has a delicious beef rib sushi roll for those of us who cannot eat seafood. The staff catered to our every need. It was a perfect vacation!
