You may not have known this but the Caribbean island of Anguilla is a British territory, north of St. Kitts and west of Puerto Rico. The island is only 16 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point but captures every essence of tropical beauty that the Caribbean has to offer. Here we look at one of our favourite resorts on the island, Malliouhana Resort and Spa:
The luxurious and sophisticated Malliouhana Resort & Spa, with its spa ‘Day Suites’, 25,000 bottle wine cellar and spacious, elegant and comfortable rooms and suites is the perfect destination for a luxury spa holiday. The sheltered coves and beautiful beaches all around create the perfect Caribbean ambience, and a stunning setting for this stylish, relaxing resort.
The hotel has just 55 rooms spread over 25 lush, tropical acres and each has its own covered terrace or balcony. You can choose from accommodation in the main house with spectacular ocean views, suites situated on a bluff overlooking the turquoise waters, or a villa on the beach or in and amongst the tropical gardens. There is also the option of further privacy with the Jacuzzi Suites that overlook Turtle Cove Beach and have an outdoor terrace & covered patio as well as a private outdoor hot tub. For even more luxury there is also the Pool Suite that features a large lounge, two bedrooms, a whirlpool bath, several outdoor terraces, private sundecks, their own swimming pool and private access to Turtle Cove Beach.
However, the highlight of Malliohana is its world-class oceanfront spa covering 15,0000 square feet and offering state of the art facilities. This full service spa includes three private spa-suites each with its own outdoor balcony, a supervised gym and fitness centre and an outdoor Jacuzzi looking out over the ocean from the relaxation deck.
The hotel also features 2 restaurants of the highest standard – the award-winning Michel Rostang and the beachside bistro. There is plenty to keep you occupied during the day with complimentary activities including tennis, snorkelling, windsurfing, water-skiing and sailing. The resort is also family friendly with a supervised children’s play area and a pirate ship with water slide and water cannons.
