Sitting on a quiet and serene stretch of beach on one of the Caribbean’s most idyllic islands, Anguilla, the Four Seasons beckons visitors like a beacon of light in a storm. A modern and minimal approach to design is at the heart of the visual nature here. Of course, palms sway throughout the property and there are more hibiscus plants that one could ever count, which makes nature the central focus. It’s all so very elegant and you can’t help but feel like you’ve reached the place where you’re supposed to be.
Mead’s Bay is electric blue and this is your new back yard. The soft sugary sand gives way to your feet as you traverse the area, but plopping-down in front of the soft waves is where it’s at. A touch of a button and someone is ready to take a cocktail order, so, in essence, heaven is a place on Earth. I stayed for three nights and, in truth, had a hard time packing my bags to depart.
Checking-in to the Four Seasons is easy, with a rum punch welcome and an expedited process in place. I was led to my room, a two-bedroom suite with two terraces overlooking the sea. What a delight. The rooms are made entirely of a pale grey marble, wood and white linen. This allows the blue of the sea to reflect-in at every corner and makes a calming palette for your vacation.
My suite was equipped with a Nespresso machine, plush robes, wine and cocktail glasses, a full kitchen and all the necessities one would need to just hang out and feel like you’re right at home. The Four Seasons Anguilla offers villas, rooms, suites, townhomes and residences – all of which can be accessed by guests. They all come with daily housekeeping, turn down service and, of course, room service – with some of the most scrumptious food on the island.
Over my three days here at The Four Seasons, I indulged in the several pools dotting the property, the fitness facility, spa and, of course, dining.
Spending the day alternating between pool and beach was easy, but, after dark, it was all about choosing a dining venue – many of which offer live entertainment.
One might feel a bit guilty with all the cocktailing and eating, pushing yourself to hit the gym in an effort to make up for the high caloric intake – but, this is vacation after all.
For dining venues, the property offers: Half Shell Beach Bar, Salt, where breakfast is also served, Bamboo Bar and Grill and, of course, the Sunset Lounge – where drinks flow freely. They are all excellent options and specialize in seafood, but comfort food is also on offer (Sometimes you just need a pizza).
The Four Seasons Anguilla prides itself on service and creating an environment to let their guests just relax and let go for a minute. This is much needed in today’s hectic world, and this property knows that. For anyone looking for the very best in the Caribbean, you simply cannot miss this stunning property.
