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.

fully body message and dinner
Margaret R

I visited this hotel in shoal bay .I had an hour fully body message it was worth the money. Then had a meal in the lounge bar it was good. over all i liked what i saw. the ambience was good, found it friendly. I am an retired Anguillian and the next time i visit i will be booking this hotel. I Stayed a Viceroy before the hurricane it did not have no ambience, cold more for the rich and famous, went to meet someone at the name change to four seasons and found it customer service still cold.

PHENOMENAL

Excellence in service and accommodations. The beaches in Anguilla are already places of pure beauty, so placement of Zemi Beach House into this creates the perfect destination. Zemi does not miss a mark when it comes to delivering the highest quality of service- from the moment of arrival, being greeted with a rum punch to the cookies left at their turn down service each night. This place offers luxury finishes, divine food and drinks, and first class service. The resort is established as an ultimate getaway for anyone wanting to be surrounded by paradise. It’s relaxing and refreshing. Designed to cater to everyone- singles- couples- families. They offer an experience for all. The spa is AMAZING- tranquil and beautiful. The grounds are impeccable. The team is there to assist with planning EVERYTHING- from transportation to and from the resort, to sightseeing. Anyone looking for a genuine first class escape to paradise should not miss Zemi Beach House. LOVED IT!

Best Hotel in Anguilla

Zemi Beach House offers quite, tranquility that sets itself apart from the cookie-cutter hotel chains. This resort is located on Shoal Beach - the best beach in Anguilla. The food was great, staff extremely friendly and I would recommend renting a car. If you have the money - get a spa treatment at their facility! IT is GORGEOUS and amazing! We had a blast there.
