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, rosé, 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!

Five Romantic Experiences in Anguilla

Beachfront lazing on one of Anguilla’s 33 beaches is arguably a romantic pursuit in and of itself. So, how do you up the romance factor when you’re escaping with your other half on a getaway centered on disconnecting with the world and connecting with each other? If you’re heading to the island, here are five romantic experiences in Anguilla for you and that special someone:

Sunset Sail on Tradition Charters

Tradition Sailing, Anguilla

Honestly, how do you beat the utter beauty and tranquility of a gorgeous sunset? Watching the sunset while sailing across the Caribbean with a glass of champagne in hand.

Tradition Sailing knows how to make a sunset experience on the sea extra special, keeping your glass full with champagne, rum punch or a crisp glass of rose. Sailing into Little Bay at sunset is nothing short of magical. Join for one of their shared charters or charter the boat for your own private sail.

Dining on the Water

Five Romantic Experiences in Anguilla

Dining in Anguilla leaves visitors to the island spoiled for choice: there are a number of world-class dining experiences in settings that are amongst the world’s best. For most couples, a beachfront dining experience with the sound of the Caribbean Sea as the evening’s soundtrack is the ultimate in al fresco dining.

For upscale Caribbean fare, try Straw Hat Restaurant on Meads Bay. For French cuisine, make a reservation at Jacala, and don’t discount their lunch — it’s one of my favorites! Other romantic upscale favorites include Mango’s for a seaside experience and da ‘Vida (go on a Thursday to be serenaded by Omalie 360!) located on Crocus Bay. Continue reading →
