Feeling Humbled and Grateful

We can’t begin to express how much everyone’s love and generosity has meant to us during this time. As we’ve mentioned to a few people recently, the outpouring of love we’ve seen has brought us to tears far more than the devastation, which says more than words can. Through our GoFundMe Employee Relief Fund, we have raised more than we could have imagined to help employees and are absolutely humbled by everyone’s kind hearts! We will keep everyone posted as we learn more. We are working towards recovery immediately, but there is still much to be assessed on the island. Keep Anguilla in your thoughts!

Please note that we increased our initial fundraising goal to $100,000. We couldn’t have predicted the kindness we’d experience, and are absolutely humbled by love towards Frangipani and its staff. There are many homes to be repaired, roofs to be fixed, windows and doors to be replaced, plus lives to help restore. Know that all donations are going directly to help Anguillian families in need!

Frangipani Employee Relief Fund

Supporting Anguilla after Hurricane Irma

We’re still assessing damages at the hotel but are optimistic about our recovery. Much of our ability to continue to work after this disaster is because of the wonderful staff that we call family. We are sad to report that many Frangipani staff members have sustained severe damage to their homes, and some have lost theirs entirely. We have offered the hotel as shelter for employees that currently don’t have a home but are focused on helping them rebuild their lives. We greatly appreciate all of the love that we’ve received, and many of you have asked how to help. We have set up a Frangipani Employee Relief Fund and will work to help each employee rebuild their homes and lives. We are personally overseeing that these funds are allocated to those in need. For those wanting to contribute, we think that this is the most meaningful and impactful way, and we hope that you will share this with others who may be interested in donating.

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has reached out! Together we will make Frangipani and the island of Anguilla even greater.

Now Available: Frangipani Villa in September & October

Anguilla Beachfront Villa, Frangipani Beach Resort

A new season for Anguilla lovers

Frequent visitors to the island of Anguilla wonder why the resorts and restaurants as a whole close down during the months of September and October. While the fall brings slightly warmer temps, it also means that you’ll have long stretches of beach all to yourself. A few restaurants remain open during the September/October¬†period, but guests also have the option for¬†private chef opportunities or the chance to grill in and enjoy their secluded getaway.

New this season, Frangipani Beach Resort is offering our beachfront villa in Anguilla, with four ocean facing en-suite bedrooms, private pool, spa, washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen during September and October for an option during the fall months. With the resort closed during that time, the villa will operate as a self-catering unit, but daily housekeeping service is available at an additional fee, and the tennis court will be available for guest use.

Anguilla Day Boat Race Photos

Celebrating #Anguilla50 with the Anguilla Day Boat Race

Anguilla Day celebrations cue the start of summer. May is winding down and June is beginning as we celebrate the anniversary of the 1967 Anguilla Revolution on May 30th. With the 50th anniversary upon us, this year has been extra special in the efforts the island has put in to celebrating the revolutionaries, island tradition and heritage. By the end of May, the weather begins to sizzle just a bit more; the seas sit calmly, perfect for days of boating and paddleboarding; and cultural festivities begin to come alive.

The Anguilla Day boat race is the kick off, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by being on a boat watching the sailboats pass by on their journey around the island.

Anguilla Day #Anguilla50Anguilla Day #Anguilla50Anguilla Day #Anguilla50

Loaded up with guests, we took FrangiCat on a spin around the island, departing Meads Bay and heading east to Little Bay, then onto Shoal Bay and Scrub Island before making our way around the southern side. We continued on, back to Sandy Ground where the races culminate in a beach party to celebrate the winners with island BBQ and music.

For us, no boat trip is complete without a stop at Little Bay, and it’s a place on the island that always stuns me with its beauty; the dramatic cliff side, the turquoise waters, and bright white sliver of sand the waxes and wanes throughout the season. On Anguilla Day it’s not quite the calm oasis that it is most other days, but it still brings the natural beauty, complemented by soca music blaring from neighboring boats.

Anguilla Day #Anguilla50Anguilla Day #Anguilla50

For many of¬†visitors and expats, it’s an excuse for a¬†lively boat day. For locals, boat racing has cultural ties though and is part of the tradition of the island, dating back to early days of trading. As the island’s¬†national sport, Anguillians are out en masse on racing days, watching boats zip by from the beach or from clifftops with binoculars in hand. Most locals support a boat (there are few people here that we’ve met that don’t have a boat¬†that they root for), and many organizations on the island help back a boat with financial contributions (you’ll see sails with logos on them, each boasting their sponsors).

Anguilla Day #Anguilla50Anguilla Day #Anguilla50

We pulled into Sandy Ground ahead of the sailboats in time to watch the race culminate with a winner swooping into shore, nestled right next to us to claim its win. I’m not much for the beach party scene but it’s always prime for people watching and taking in the festivities. Plus, if you’re in the mood for fresh of the BBQ ribs and chicken, you’re in luck. ūüĎĆūüŹĹ

A huge congrats to¬†Real Deal¬†who claimed the win this go around! We’re excited for a summer of boat races and festivities ahead. The countdown to Carnival is officially on!

Cocktail Party at Scilly Cay

Frangipani Cocktail Party on Scilly Cay by Ben Killion.

We’re all about finding ways to help our guests experience Anguilla. We have a privileged location right in the middle of gorgeous Meads Bay, but there’s so much to enjoy beyond our white sand beach and our collective goal is to help our guests discover which parts of the island resonate most with them. Many of our festive season¬†guests have stayed at the hotel for years, with some visiting Anguilla for more than two decades¬†in a row, yet many hadn’t moseyed on down to Island Harbour to visit Scilly Cay, one of our favorite gems on the island.

In lieu of our traditional weekly cocktail party, we decided to up the ante with a cocktail party on Scilly Cay with hosted rum punch, ros√©, and one of our favorite bands, Omalie360. We had a couple of musical guest stars – including a performance by one of our guests! – and plenty of fun had by all of our guests. We couldn’t imagine a better way to say goodbye to 2016!

Cheers to a great 2017!
