The Frangipani’s calling card may be its spectacular Meads Bay location, but its Spanish Colonial Revival façade — pale rose-colored stucco walls, wrought iron railings, clay tile roof and archways aplenty — is equally appealing. Interiors nod to the Caribbean setting — think rattan furnishings, mahogany cabinetry, limestone tile floors, pale yellow walls and more than a few floral throw pillows.
Bed & Bath
The 19 rooms range from a cozy 200 square feet to spacious suites. Residential-style suites are equipped with full kitchens, as well as private patios or balconies, and bathrooms come stocked with frangipani-scented products. Sand lovers should opt for rooms on the ground floor, where you can step straight from your room onto the beach.
The Frangipani is home to the Straw Hat restaurant, an island institution that relocated to the property a few years back. Visitors and locals alike pack into the welcoming space or onto the beachfront deck, for Carib-fusion food like jerk-braised pork belly with sautéed chorizo or grilled local crayfish with sweet plantains. Beyond the culinary offerings, Frangipani is a perfect pick for beach lovers, as it occupies a lovely stretch of Meads Bay. Chill out on comfy loungers in the shade of a palapa or, if you’re more of an active type, take advantage of free non-motorized (kayaks, Hobie Cats) and motorized (tubing, wakeboarding, water-skiing) water sports on offer.
How to Get There
We stayed at Frangipani July 20-27, 2019. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, literally right on the beach, it really doesn’t get any better than that. Shannon and Scott, the hosts, welcomed us upon arrival. They are genuine, warm, fun, and just want their guests to be happy and have the best time. They actually went out and got me a sleep mask when I mentioned I needed one!! Our suite was amazing and had every amenity you could ask for, we never locked our door, that’s how safe we felt. The island hopping tour done on site was the best day, so much fun and a great way to see the island. The water sports on site were also a huge plus for us, Colin and my man Juman never tired of taking me sailing!! Frangipani is a true gem, you become family when staying there. We will be back!! I couldn’t think of staying anywhere else when visiting Anguilla.
My husband and I just got back from a six night stay at Frangipani. This is our second time to Anguilla. What can I say that hasn't already been written about this beauitful, peaceful place. We stayed in an one bedroom luxury ocean view room. The room is large enough to fit all your belongings and luggage. Very comfortable. Bathroom is large as well. This room had a full size refrigerator in it which was nice. The grounds, pool, and ocean all beautiful. The first time we visited Anguilla,we stayed on Maundays Bay and this time, we rented a car, and went to Shoal Bay and a couple of other beaches and we think Mead's Bay is the best beach to stay on!
Everyone at Frangipani is so warm, friendly and welcoming!! They took care of all of reservations and anything else we needed.
There are plently of restaurants to choose from and within walking distrance of the resort. The Straw Hat is right next store to Frangipani. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there - all our meals were excellent!!
If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind with a beautiful view - this is the place! Thank you Frangipani for making our vacation so memorable! We can't wait to come back!
my wife and i have been at frangipani for the last two weeks or so. we stayed in a one bedroom suite with a nice ocean view.
when we arrived, scott, shannon, candice, and shara met us. we felt so welcomed and felt like we were part of a family. we were give (strong) rum punches which after a long trip were in order and great.
our luggage was taken to our room while we checked in. it was easy, seamless, and a great introduction to the hotel. by the way, we are repeat customers so we know the routine...but it never gets tired.
honestly, every single element of the stay was first rate. the room was great. the pool and ocean seats were great. stew hat was great. there is a frangicat boat trip which we did...i had low expectations...it was a blast! we stopped at 4 anguilla beaches. we stopped for a casual local lunch. we jumped off a famous rock. we saw the arch. we also had lots of rum punch (again) and made new friends.
scott and shannon are present and amazing hosts. they will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy and having fun.
while we had a great ocean view room, in the past we had a room with no view. honestly not was also great. one doesn't spend much time ion the room in any case, so i don't think it is a necessity to have an ocean view room.
some rooms have washer dryers, which is a nice luxury. you can request a keurig and a teapot for coffee and tea.
we went to the gym daily. its was surprisingly well appointed, and the view is directly of the ocean. it was fun working out to crashing waves in the distance. since the food in anguilla is so good, i asked if i could get a scale put in the room to weigh myself. it was there in an hour.
we return to frangipani in november, and although we just got back from our trip, we are already counting the days to the next visit.
i can't recommend frangipani more than i am doing. it is simply amazing, satisfying, fulfilling, fun, and filled with new friends.
