If you are an Anguilla aficionado, have already been to the Malliouhana, Cap Juluca or Cuisinart and are ready to try something new, you may be in luck.
Viceroy Anguilla is a new 166-room resort opening this November along Barnes and Meades Bay. I have to admit I am excited about this hotel – the contemporary interior design (Kelly wearstler), resort layout, amenities (full kitchens with washer/dryers, spa, bars and restaurants), family focus (alas, the kids programs will not be ready until 2010, according to the web site) all hit the right notes for me. However, the resort’s soft opening has been pushed back several times (as of now, it’s August with special preview rates) so there is no initial feedback yet.
Risk takers: They are taking reservations for Christmas. Stay tuned…
