The Best Room at… The Four Seasons Anguilla

Back in 2020, the tiny island of Anguilla became widely lauded for more than it’s easy-going and laidback atmosphere, unfussy resorts, pristine white sand beaches, and yes, the fabulous food scene—the tiny island also made just about every correct call when it came to its Covid protocols. In came a bubble and a strict testing policy—and with that relative comfort that one wouldn’t be caught in the middle of a severe outbreak of the disease. Now that the vaccine has been available to the public for many months, the island has instituted a new policy: only tourists who have been vaccinated can visit. With Anguilla opening back up, there is no better place to visit than the Four Seasons on the island, with its many restaurants, impeccable beaches and pools—the property is sprawling.

Diego Angarita, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla caught up with T&C to tell us what makes the resort unmissable—and what the most premium accommodations available are like.

What do you consider to be the best room at the property and why?

We are blessed with such a variety of room categories that appeal to all needs and are each contemporary in feel. For families and small groups of friends, our spectacular Five-Bedroom Beachfront Villa is a must and comes complete with a gourmet kitchen, private pool, BBQ, and direct beach access to Barnes Bay. For couples seeking a romantic break, our Deluxe Oceanview One-Bedroom Suite is a great choice with its dedicated living area, kitchenette and balcony with a private plunge pool.

How much does that room cost per night?

Our Five-Bedroom Oceanfront Villas start from $8,000 per night and our DeluxeOne-Bedroom Suites are priced from $1,100 per night (seasonal pricing applies).

How would you describe the guests and the vibe at the hotel?

We have created an extremely special vibe at the resort—relaxed in feel with warm, personalized service and the utmost attention to detail. Our guests come from a variety of backgrounds and regions worldwide, adding to the overall energy. We love seeing them interact and make new friends—whether that’s gathering together at Sunset or enjoying our nightly entertainment that appeals to all age groups. Our goal is always for guests to feel like they escaped their everyday lives and entered our paradise.

What kind of impression of the island do you hope to give to guests?

Anguilla is a true gem and while it may be best known for pristine beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters, we want our guests to also feel the amazing warmth and welcoming spirit of the island. Almost all of our staff are born and bred Anguillans and are proud to share their stories and knowledge with our guests.

What is one thing about the hotel that you think first time visitors will find surprising?

Part of Anguilla’s charm is that it is somewhat under the radar in comparison to other Caribbean islands that tend to attract the crowds and is considered the culinary capital of the Caribbean. People can come to Anguilla to truly unwind, discover new experiences and landscapes, eat exceptionally well and also make new friends along the way.

What do you think makes the hotel unique and distinguishes it from other hotels in the area?

There really is something for everyone at our resort, ranging from the diversity our contemporary designed accommodation, to the breadth of activities available within the grounds. We welcome locals and guests staying elsewhere to enjoy ‘Instagrammable moments’ together with us whether that’s over cocktails at our Sunset Lounge or sitting in our now iconic ‘Face Chairs’ that directly face the ocean.

Tell us about the hotels traditions and how are you bringing that heritage into the post-pandemic world?

The property, designed by Kelly Wearstler, first opened in 2009 and later became a Four Seasons in September 2016. We are proud to offer initiatives that the Four Seasons brand has become renowned for such as excellent service standards and our Kids for All Seasons program, allowing young guests to make friends, learn new skills and hang out under the watchful eyes of our staff counsellors (at no additional cost). We have also paid homage to the island’s history as a salt producer through our signature SALT restaurant.

What do you think gives the hotel such a unique identity?

Our resort spans over 35-acres and has so much to offer, without guests ever needing to leave if they don’t want to! We can cater to those looking to join us to simply relax, as well as to those who seek adventure. With many guests returning to the resort year after year, there is a wonderful community that continues to grow.

What are the best activities/must-see/do/eat when staying with you?

Within our grounds, a multitude of activities await with: three swimming pools to lounge by, rock-climbing, tennis, and basketball courts, sunrise yoga sessions, private Soca fitness classes with our resident PT, and relaxing spa treatments, including everything from a Blue Tranquility Massage and to the Anguilla Salt Scrub, which integrates ingredients native to the island. For those looking to take to the water, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking and kite-surfing are not to be missed, with private boat excursions also on offer to explore off-the-beaten track spots such as the idyllic Sandy Island.

After working up an appetite, guests can kick back with light bites, cocktails and live music from the island’s leading act, Omalie 360, at our Sunset Lounge (arguably boasting the best sunset view on the island!). Our signature restaurant, SALT, serves superb locally-inspired dishes paired with panoramic views over both bays, while villa guests can enjoy a private BBQ with a chef preparing a choice of locally sourced meats and seafood to be savored surrounded by tiki torches and the sound of waves.
