Overview

Luxurious suites, an award-winning spa, and an emphasis on service make this beachfront resort a stand-out option in the Caribbean

The Lowdown

A six-acre stretch on Anguilla’s Shoal Bay East is the glorious white-sand-and-turquoise-water setting for the first luxury resort on this end of the island. Zemi has the advantage of pristine beaches and fabulous sea views, and the luxury of the 69 rooms and suites encourages some serious lounging. The resort’s design was nominally inspired by the indigenous Arawak people—there are dark wood accents and sand-colored stone everywhere—although the best feature of the spacious and comfortable rooms is the light filtering through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead to the balcony, which illuminates the soft neutral palette. The high-quality, cushioned rattan furniture on the spacious balconies (every room has one) is another perk, perfect for reading a book, napping, or staring out to sea. The resort has an award-winning spa, where Anguilla’s only hammam is built in a 300-year-old Thai house, and two restaurants, plus a sand-floored cocktail bar and a tasting room that specializes in single-origin rums.

In the Area

With the resort’s fabulous pools and spectacular patch of beach, you’d be forgiven for never leaving, but there’s still plenty to do nearby. There are boat excursions to other islands like St. Barts, snorkeling around the coral reef and other water sports organized by the Shoal Bay Beach Club, plus hiking trails that span the island. Stroll down the beach to Gwen’s Reggae Bar and Grill, a beach bar known for Caribbean staples like barbecued ribs, best washed down by a rum punch. History buff? Check out nearby archeological sites such as Big Spring and Fountain Caverns, home to remnants of ancient Taino groups, or learn more about Anguilla’s history at the Heritage Collection Museum.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

My wife, my son and I have just returned from a 5 days vacation at this beautiful Resort and we're already planning to go back next summer and spend more days at Zemi Beach House in Anguilla. Everything was perfect specially the accommodation and staff. The best beach in the Caribbean. The rooms are huge and very confortable, the food, cocktails and all the amenities where perfect. THE SPA IS AMAZING !!!!. It was truly a wonderful experience and the best vacation ever. We can't wait to go there again soon. Thanks to all the great people we met at Zemi Beach House. We'll see you next summer !!!!.

Amazing Experience

We are wrapping up our stay at Zemi for our honeymoon and it was truly the best vacation of our life. It was our first trip to Anguilla and I can say we will definitely be back.

We have never seen a staff that tries harder to make your experience great than they do at Zemi Beach. They go out of their way to know your name right from the beginning. The staff at the beach was the ones that really stuck out to us. Javier, Kenny, Aden Vandel and Tuneero go above and beyond to make your time in the beach chairs amazing.

When we arrived they upgraded our room and made it special every step of the way. I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you guys for such an amazing trip.

Phenomenal Hotel! Amazing Beach!

Just returned from a quick 5 day vacation at Zemi. First off the staff, service and rooms were excellent. The ocean and beach were perfect. And the location is awesome since your less than a quarter mile from some great beach huts and restaurants each with signature dishes and cocktails. (Some favorites were Gwen’s for rum punch, Sunset Hut for Pina Coladas, and Madirman had killer seafood)

The food was also top notch at Zemi and the Thai Spa was world class. Also we arrived at beginning of new season and had the hotel almost to ourselves which was great. The pool and beach staff especially Kenny and T were on point everyday pampering us and Alicia in the restaurant was a great host at our meals.

At night turn down service included delicious cookies and plenty of water bottles ;)

The management were very supportive and help fix any issue we had. Special thanks to Natasha you’re a star!

All in all superb and relaxing week and we will be returning.
