Aerial View of Frangipani + The Villa

Meads Bay, Anguilla

Our architect captured this amazing aerial shot of the Frangipani Resort and we had to share! It gives such a fabulous perspective as to the Frangipani’s expansive beachfront – even we were drooling at this view! – and the location of the newly acquired villa (directly to the right of the Frangipani as shown in the photo above).

One of the best parts of this photo?

This was taken in April, a time when our resort is still busy and in full swing… aren’t you loving the number of people on the beach? Definitely no fighting for beach chairs here!


Cheers from Meads Bay,
Team Frangipani

Unveiling the Frangipani Fitness Center

The 2014/2015 season has brought a lot of excitement for us at the Frangipani! We officially unveiled our new reception area, and with it, our new fitness center and conference space. Yes, Anguilla’s all about lazing in the sun under a palapa and sipping rum punch overlooking the Caribbean Sea, but we had many guests wanting to sneak in a good morning workout, or a pre-dinner run.

Behold, the brand spankin’ new fitness facility at the Frangipani Beach Resort. Treadmills, ellipticals, a couple of bikes, free weights and two benches (currently en route to Anguilla), along with an area for stretching, complete with medicine balls, resistance bands and mats.

Plus, check out this view! It certainly makes that extra mile a little easier.

The resort’s new fitness center provides a great complement to our second pool, which is a great space for swimming laps for those that prefer water-based exercise. Our fitness facility is open to guests only, and passes are not available to outside guests.

Cheers to a happy, healthy 2015!

 

Anguilla’s AHTA Gala

AHTA Gala, Anguilla

Anguilla’s ‘Rising Star’ at the Frangipani

On December 5th, Frangipani’s management team took part in the island’s AHTA Gala to honor the island’s best, from Anguilla’s best ferry service to Employee of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. In addition, Juman Hughes, Frangipani’s nominee for Employee of the Year joined the team for the evening.

Frangipani General Manager, Scott Kircher, had the honor of presenting a special award for the evening which went to Entertainer of the Year, Sprocka. Sprocka is a great friend of the resort, and his much-anticipated Christmas album makes it to the island this week {you can get your copy at Petals Boutique beginning this weekend}.

An extra special honor went to our very own Juman Hughes, who won the AHTA’s newest award, the Rising Star award, which recognizes an employee on the island who has overcome obstacles in life to excel in the workplace. As anyone who has stayed here can attest, Juman certainly excels! The win was an exciting one not only for Juman, but for the entire Frangipani family. Cheers, Juman, for a great three years and for an incredibly bright future ahead!

Beach Hopping Boat Trip

Frangipani Beach Resort, Anguilla, BWI

With guests in tow, we headed out for our first beach hopping boat trip of the season! The weather was perfect, the seas were calm, and all of our guests were fabulous, as usual. We made the rounds to Prickly Pear Cays for a float and a bit of snorkeling, then headed to legendary Little Bay where three of the bunch took the plunge from the famous rock. Following a delicious group lunch at da’ Vida (frozen mojitos, please!), we took a slow cruise around to the south side of the island to glimpse different beaches by boat. Perfection.

Anguilla Carnival Celebrations

Anguilla Carnival, #AXASumFest
Snapshots from August Monday

For those that have visited peaceful Anguilla during any other week of the year, you’ll know that the island is synonymous with utter tranquility. Besides the sounds of laughter, ocean lapping up on the sand, and the clinking of rum punch glasses, the beaches are generally a place of unadulterated relaxation.

Then comes Carnival week, Anguilla’s Summer Festival, with August Monday’s festivities. During this one week – this one day – the island is transformed. BBQ stations line Sandy Ground, Heineken tents dole out rum punch in quantity, and a stage situated in the sand is home to live bands that get the crowd  dancing  from day to night. Boats from St. Martin and St. Barths pull into Sandy Ground to tie up and celebrate at one of the Caribbean’s biggest beach parties. It’s a holiday on the island, and for many, the countdown to August Monday begins 364 days in advance. Even those that prefer to skip the madness of the beach party should pop down for a moment to take it in; it’s people watching at its finest and it’s an event that captures the spirited culture of Anguilla and the joie de vivre of its people.

The Frangipani Beach Resort was completely booked up for this year’s Carnival celebration and it was a week for the books. For some guests it was a first. For many, it was a tradition. Here are some snapshots from August Monday:

Though this happened towards the beginning of our season, we wanted to share this incredible video created by two of our guests, Forrest and Ellie.

Donating to the Blowing Point Youth Development Center

Pack for a Purpose

Smiles, laughs & thank yous from the BPYDC

As you may recall, our team at the Frangipani Beach Resort pioneered the Pack for a Purpose project on Anguilla. Through the program, visitors to the island – not just guests at the resort – can bring necessary supplies for us to donate to the youth program. The center, run by one paid staff member and a slew of volunteers, is run entirely on donations. After a couple of months of collections, we had 96 pounds of goods; everything from books and flashcards to watercolors and construction paper donated by a number of incredible individuals that have helped us get this program off the ground.

We were lucky enough to take the supplies to the youth center and see the kids’ faces as we delivered bag after bag of gifts. The children at BYPDC wanted to say thank you to everyone who has helped to make this possible thus far:

The pure happiness, gratitude and excitement in the air was remarkable – it’s a wonderful reminder as to why we adopted this program in the first place. It’s an opportunity for us give back to the island and to help guests do the same. Before we could even finish unloading, kids had taken books and begun reading; some started chatting about what they were going to do with their new arts and crafts supplies.  Below are a few snapshots of the kids digging through their new supplies.
