Magnificent white sand beaches and crystalline Caribbean Sea water describe Anguilla to perfection. This strip of isolated land at the extreme north of Saint-Martin Island is an ideal refuge for travellers in search of intimacy. Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, the island’s former name was Malliouhaha, arrow point in the Indian Arawak language. It was renamed, Anguilla because of its elongated shape. Far from the brouhaha of its larger neighbor, the island is the personification of charm, discretion and privacy. Among the celebrities who come here in search of this serenity are Orlando Bloom, Denzel Washington and Robert De Niro. The veil of mystery surrounding the island is in part because the Republic of Anguilla is determined to protect its coast from construction companies. In 1967, the government of Anguilla invalidated a project for building a private trans-shipment port, thus preventing mass tourism on the island. Only about ten very upscale establishments have invested here since the creation of the first along them, the Malliohaha. To this day, Anguilla remains a well-guarded secret.
Opening onto Maundays Bay, one of the archipelago’s most beautiful beaches, Cap Juluca possesses some unique architecture. Eighteen Moorish style villas combining simplicity and elegance have been built complete with arches, domes, moucharabiehs and hidden fountains. Designed by architect Oscar Farmer, Cap Juluca embodies, “the most romantic of his architectural creations.” The suites all open onto to the sea for the nocturnal pleasure of its fortunate guests. Inspired by Hispanic-Moorish art, Farmer plays with geometric and arabesque shapes, giving the complex “the feeling of being one and the same with this strangely simple and elegant site, with no additional flourishes.” Classified in 2011 as one of the world’s 500 best hotels by Travel and Leisure Magazine, Cap Juluca offers, among many other exceptional services, a unique culinary experience at the Pimm’s Restaurant under the supervision of the French Chef, René Bajeux with a subtle mixture European dishes and which features a refined and exotic cuisine whose reputation has gone beyond the borders of the Caribbean. In 2009, Cap Juluca opened its golf course, which has since been awarded a prize by Golfweek Magazine. The Temenos Golf Course is the only course designed in the archipelago and bears the name of its designer, the internationally renowned golfer, Greg Norman.
“Anguilla will never be a mass tourist destination, and far from this being a disadvantage, our reputation for being a vacation spot for the rich and famous has helped us to focus on the quality of what we offer our visitors.” (Candis Niles, director of the Anguilla tourist Council)
