A farewell to Jan and Alex


Nearly four years ago, Alex and Jan Klingen left their home in Houston, Texas to begin their journey as the General Managers of the Frangipani Beach Resort in Anguilla. Working closely with the staff, they dedicated years of work and love to the resort to make it what it is today.

In January, Alex departed Anguilla to kickstart the next chapter of their lives in Dallas, Texas. Jan graciously stayed on the island to ensure a smooth transition for the Frangipani’s new generation. As the 15th of March approaches, we say goodbye to Jan as she, too, makes her way to Dallas where they will continue their lives in the US with their children.

On behalf of the Frangipani staff and all of the guests who have come to love Jan and Alex, we say farewell. You were deeply appreciated, you will be missed, and you’ve left an indelible mark on the resort. Thank you for the years of work and love!

Feel free to leave your well wishes for Jan and Alex below!

Jan, Jevon & Ezzy
