f your favorite way to relax is to visit as many of Anguilla’s beautiful beaches as you can, here’s a little information on a lot of them.

SECRET SPOTS Captain’s Bay is a wildly beautiful beach you can expect to have to yourself – swimming not recommended.

Auntie Doll Bay is a little visited beach that is great for shelling; it’s also a romantic spot to watch the lights come up over St Martin.

Windward Point is the island’s most easterly beach and is wild, windswept and reached via a beautiful hike through sand dunes and rocky terrain.

Corito Bay is quiet, secluded and protected by a high reef, good for walking and beachcombing.

Lockrum Bay on the Caribbean side, with offshore reefs and views of St Martin, is home to a few select villas. Long Pond Bay is quiet and peaceful and has stunning views to “Flat Island,” and lots of bird life on the nearby salt pond.

West End Bay, a secluded gem bounded by coral reefs with rock pools for exploring and peace and quiet for daydreaming. Katouche Bay, backed by an ancient forest with mangroves, is a historically rich bay on the Atlantic, trek to secret caves (with a guide!), watch crashing waves and find wonderful fossils – a nature lover’s delight!

“DE ANGUILLIAN” BY ANDY CONNOR

M

any years ago, my wife and I attended a tourism conference focused on making this beautiful island of Anguilla even better. The one question that caught us all by surprise was: “What is the number one reason that people come to Anguilla?” “The beaches,” one person shouted. “No, the beautiful weather,” said another. “Come on everyone, it’s the fresh and delicious seafood.” Well, of course all of

that is true but that’s not the NUMBER 1 reason. The #1 reason is… the people! Yes, the Anguillian! Anguillians know that sometimes it can be a visitor’s nightmare to try and understand “De Anguillian” in our freestyle way of communicating and our use of directions (East and West). Have no fear, I’m here to make sure it’s only sweet dreams on this paradise island called Anguilla by teaching you some of our dialect and directions.

DIALECT Now, usually we tone it down a little and try to speak slower and as close to the Queen’s English language as we can, just for you. But if you’re to hear our unfiltered

28

typical conversation, it’ll be a jaw-dropping experience probably leaving you with a face of confusion and your eyes wide open in surprise. Let’s listen to two Anguillians go at it:

De Anguillian 1: ‘Mornin, ‘mornin. Ey partner wat’s up?

1: Ok, who playing down der? 2: Dem say Pantha Vibes.

De Anguillian 2: ‘Mornin? It’s Afternoon. Boi you just wake up? I-good. How tings wit you? 1: Boi you know how it is… I cool. So wer de lime be tonight? 2: I tink it down in de mud ya no.

1: Pantha Vibes?! Aya looka wuk! I see dem man. Man dem went south today, ya know. 2: Aya! Well dem better come back north tonight cause I man will be down in the Mud waiting on dem man to play.

1: Down in de Mud? Wer-dah-be? 2: Dah down Sandy Ground by Johnno’s.

1: Cool partna, I going in the east now so check-ya latr. I gone. 2: Cool partna, we catch up latr.

Andy Connor is the owner of Andy’s Car Rentals – located in a cute gift shop at the Blowing Point Ferry Terminal that is worth

a visit. Andy’s offers great value (rates start only $35/day) and top service. Treat yourself to one of his popular Beetle convertibles.

www.trueanguilla.com


P E O P L E A N D B E AC H E S

This is what you have coming at you in a fast and speedy dialect. Now let’s decode this puzzle: Good Morning (‘Mornin)/Afternoon = These are greetings that display manners. It’s the way we grew up, from generations passed on. We must always say good morning or good afternoon especially to elders or strangers – it shows respect. Aya or Aya Lawd = An expression meaning “Wow” or “Oh, my God.” Wer-dah-be = Simply put, it means “Where is that?”

Wer de lime be = This is a question asking where the entertainment is or an event. Normally it’s with music and people dancing… a place to enjoy yourself! Aya looka wuk = An expression meaning “Oh, my goodness,” if something is unbelievable or if you are totally surprised. The dialect of De Anguillian is in this text, but the true Anguillian is more than just words. You’ll see who we are through our eyes, bright smiles and that great Anguillian hug. You’ll feel a love that honours you; that inner love that only “De Anguillian” has to offer.

DIRECTIONS When you’re traveling around Anguilla in your Andy’s Auto Rentals vehicle (wink-wink), you may think you’ll have some problems getting from point A to point B. I will admit that the road signs are not many and small in print, but don’t worry about this. De Anguillian

Visitor: “Excuse me. Good afternoon. Can you please tell me where I can find the Best Buy?” De Anguillian: “Sure. You’re the closest to Best Buy West and it’s only two turns here from the ferry terminal and about 15-18 minutes away.” Visitor: “Oh, great!” De Anguillian: “Drive straight up north to the first traffic light and make a left. Then you gonna drive straight going west ‘til you come

30

www.trueanguilla.com

can get you where you’re going in a very unique way. Explaining directions to you will include no street signs, numbers or addresses. It’s only landmarks, traffic lights, roundabouts or sometimes the names of elders in a particular village. Here’s a simple example:

to a second street light. Continue driving straight. After that you’ll meet a gas station on your left and that’s when you’re getting warm.” Visitor: (Smiles) De Anguillian: “After the gas station, keep driving and the big huge building on the right is the Best Buy.” Visitor: “Thank you so much, I really appreciate it!” De Anguillian: “No problem!”


IMPORTANT WARNING: Please do not accept directions with live animals as landmarks, such as “make a right after the big cow tied to the big tamarind tree.” Those animals sometimes do move and relocate. Now what is all the North, South, East and West about? North or South – Anguilla is 16 miles long and 3 miles wide so most directions will be only east and west instead of north and south. We do have villages in the north such as North Hill and in the south such as South Hill or Blowing Point. If someone “went south” (like in the local dialect example), it’s probably to St. Martin/ St. Maarten, but it can geographically be any island or country to the south of Anguilla. If you “go north” it’s in a northward direction usually from Anguilla to the United States or Canada.

Your key to paradise

East – The east of the island is where the sun rises. Villages such as Island Harbour and East End are located at the east part of the island. West – The west of the island is where the sun sets, and it’s considered the end or the tail part of the island. Most of the hotels such as CuisinArt, Cap Juluca and Four Seasons are located in the west. So you see, getting lost on this island is not an option and you might be the first to do so. Here’s a tip: just keep on driving and you’ll eventually end up where you want to be. If not, at least you’ll get to see a new beach, try another great restaurant or meet some more of “De Anguillian” wonderful people. This is the Andy way of getting it done!

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE DIFFERENT SEASONS

S

easons in the Caribbean revolve around visitor arrivals rather than good or bad weather – which, by the way, is pretty much always good.* The True Anguilla team think it’s ALWAYS a good time to visit Anguilla, so here is a brief guide to what to expect in the different seasons.

Four Seasons Private Residences

FESTIVE SEASON Two weeks surrounding Christmas and New Year’s Eve (called Old Year’s Night in Anguilla) Hotels and luxury villas are in the highest demand and rates are the most expensive. Our typical guests are large family and friend groups, a high percentage of whom know each other and come every year. The Four Seasons, Resorts by CuisinArt, Zemi Beach and Cap Juluca hotels will put on fantastic events and special entertainment, but will often close their doors to outside guests during this time — so if you’re staying in more reasonable accommodations, don’t expect to sneak in to spot the celebrities the season attracts! Enjoy watching the world’s best mega yachts light up our normally secluded bays. If you fancy a visit at Festive, book early and make sure you make your dining and boat charter reservations as soon as you can — direct where possible (see the article on page 46 for more info).

34

www.trueanguilla.com

HIGH SEASON Thanksgiving to Festive and Festive until the end of March Expect to pay high (published) rates and to book well in advance, especially oceanfront rooms in properties like Carimar, Frangipani Resort and Shoal Bay Villas, as they often get rebooked year on year for popular dates. Bag a valueadded villa rate if you book directly with local agents or via the websites of villas like Beaches Edge and Alegria. During this time, oceanfront restaurants like DaVida, Straw Hat, Trattoria Tramonto and garden-set Veya will be busy, so make a reservation, as will sundowner spots like Sand Bar, Roy’s, Johnno’s and Elvis' Beach Bar in Sandy Ground. You can also visit and enjoy dining options and nightly entertainment in the major hotels. Expect to meet and make friends with “Anguilla Connoisseurs,” second home owners who are living the dream, and the “snow birds” who flock to Anguilla for 2 to 3 of these peak months every year and usually know more about where to go and what to do than any local!

Elvis' Beach Bar

Roy’s Bayside Grill Lit Lounge

LOW SEASON Late October to Thanksgiving and Easter until end of August For many this is the best time to visit. The weather is gorgeous, and our waters are at their calmest and most tempting. Expect and enjoy special offers at luxury properties like Kandara & Bird of Paradise; sometimes you can bag a real bargain. Time your stay to coincide with important local events like Anguilla Day, The Anguilla Lit Fest or Summer Festival, most of which occur during this time. Expect a younger crowd, more regional visitors, honeymooners and the guests of destination weddings and corporate groups having a ball! The best time to organise a special event or corporate retreat, as the rates are so favourable — for more information talk to Mimi at Blue Sea Anguilla.

HURRICANE SEASON

36

LOW LOW SEASON (also known as off, hurricane* or closed season) September and October This can be the most rewarding, and is the cheapest time to come, for the traveller looking for an authentic island experience. Most hotels and most beachfront restaurants close for rest and refurbishment (and because of potential for hurricanes) but there are still plenty of charming local accommodations like Paradise Cove or Airbnb spots like Hummingbird to enjoy. Fine dining is limited, but popular spots like Ocean Echo, Roy’s Bayside Grill, Lit Lounge and Tasty’s remain open. There is plenty of delicious local food on offer and you can always book a villa chef like Chef Tyrone of Hughes Culinary Villa Services to cater to your every culinary need. If you like your weather hot, your beaches completely empty and your Anguillian friends free to spend time with you, it’s a great time to come. Make sure you book somewhere with a/c, though!

*Atlantic Hurricane Season 2020 will begin on 1 June and ends on 30 November. Anguilla has suffered through some major hurricanes, most recently Irma in 2016, but our island is very cognisant of the threat and has an excellent reputation for preparedness and bouncing back. If you are worried about hurricane season, please ensure your travel insurance covers you and check with your chosen property on their hurricane response policy prior to booking.

lmond Tree Villa in Sandy Hill is unique in Anguilla’s villa market. Compact, yet spacious, offering all the usual villa amenities; swimming pool, entertaining space, lounge, kitchen and bathroom – even a crow’s nest with spectacular views for sundowners. The villa was designed by two Anguilla experts, Sue and Joe Polak, long-time visitors who saw a gap in the market to cater to those who want the privacy and space of a villa, but only need one bedroom.

What is the thing you feel makes Almond Tree unique? Almond Tree Villa was designed exclusively for couples; it provides the complete upscale villa experience, without unused rooms, spaces or added costs.

Sue and Joe’s top tips: What is the most relaxing thing about Almond Tree? Enjoying the 24/7 breezes, while absorbing the panoramic Caribbean seascape from the villa's crow's nest.

RELAXING ISLAND INTERIORS

A

lexis Parent is an Interior Designer who has worked on a number of Anguilla’s villas, including Champagne Shores and Round Rock Estate. She shares some tips for creating perfect island interiors:

1

FIRST AND FOREMOST, EXTEND YOUR INDOOR LIVING SPACES TO THE OUTDOORS! Exterior areas are an additional opportunity for inviting decor, resulting in maximum relaxation. Whether it’s lounge chairs, an outdoor sectional sofa, or even a floating daybed, there’s no reason to be cooped up inside.

2

DON’T BE AFRAID OF COLOUR! Anguilla is surrounded with spectacular hues, so why keep everything neutral? I suggest pulling from those magnificent sunsets. One way to incorporate colour is via artwork… I love large scale photography and many times I procure images taken on the island.

58

www.trueanguilla.com

3

INCORPORATE VARIOUS WOOD TONES. It warms up any home and is a nod to classic Caribbean design. There are organic accents for any aesthetic. Mixing wood tones, instead of everything being overly matched is more interesting, eclectic and creative!

4

POINT THOSE BEDS TOWARD THAT VIEW, FOLKS! I see many local homes with the beds facing a wall. It’s such a loss to me. Why not wake up to that spectacular sunrise or views of our clear blue water?

5

LARGE WINDOWS AND EXPANSIVE SLIDING DOORS ARE A PLUS. Being able to feel the breeze, hear the sounds and smell the saltwater touches nearly all of the senses! Because of the strong elements in Anguilla, I use a lot of outdoor fabrics inside. They hold up well and allow for doors and windows to remain open, while you are relaxing inside of your home.

ltamer Resort, one of Anguilla’s most exclusive hidden gems, has undergone a spectacular refurbishment. Five-bedroom Antilles Pearl is billed, correctly, as a place where beachfront elegance meets refined architectural design. The 12,000 square foot property boasts three floors “of extravagance,” and luxurious features include a beautiful beachfront swimming pool, a 50-foot skywalk (an architectural feat that makes you feel as if you are floating above the ocean), a rooftop terrace with a grill for alfresco dining, a lift, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a beautiful living room with 21-foot high ceilings and gorgeous interior design by Linda Warren Associates throughout. Another wonderfully unique feature is the stunning contemporary artwork throughout the villa from emerging and

mid-career artists; carefully curated pieces that highlight the architecture and beauty of the interior spaces. Outdoors, enjoy a beautiful slice of beach as well as a fitness centre and tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. To top it all off, the property, which has a stellar reputation for providing the ultimate in discreet and friendly service from its excellent 24-hour butler team, is now managed by Anguilla native, and longtime butler himself, Preston Brooks.

EDITOR'S NOTE If you love the sound of Altamer but are on a tighter budget, check out pretty Petit Topaz, a duplex villa in the same resort that sleeps 4 with an enclosed, private courtyard, outdoor hot tub AND exclusive access to the beach via a private walkway — this little gem is well suited for honeymoons or a couples’ retreat.

imi Gratton, of Blue Sea Anguilla, the Islands leading Destination Management Company is a true Island Expert. Here are few tips on what to expect when you dine out…

RELAXATION RECOMMENDATION

If you want to bring a group to Anguilla for a corporate retreat, special event or wedding, contact Mimi for options on logistics and where to dine. BLUE SEA ANGUILLA know everything there is to know about getting guests to, from and around Anguilla. They handle groups from 4 to 400 and make every guest feel pampered and special.

Anguilla is a laid-back destination. You can wear shorts and sandals to even the smartest of restaurants. However, despite the relaxed dress code, there is a level of formality required when making restaurant reservations that will help you have the best experience, and let your host offer you the best service. Most restaurants in Anguilla are small and often family-run businesses. They are well-oiled machines that plan ahead to give guests the best possible experience based on reservations they have on the books, so to avoid dining disappointment:

Reserve direct with the restaurant – they have the most up to date information, and changes given to hotel/villa staff cannot always be guaranteed – you can use the contact details on pages 139 - 141 to do so.

66

www.trueanguilla.com

RESERVATIONS are strongly suggested, and expect that groups over 5 will probably be asked to secure a reservation with a credit card.

Service charge is not a tip for your server only, it gets split among the entire staff (waitstaff, kitchen, cleaners) through an equitable service charge committee. If you want to reward YOUR server you can always leave a tip on top.

Credit Cards. Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted, AMEX less so. Please check with your restaurant first if you want to use a particular card. Expect to pay cash (Eastern Caribbean (EC) or US dollars) at food vans and roadside BBQ’s and don’t be surprised if you get your change in EC!

No one will blame you for lingering on the beach, but if you need to push your reservation time back please let the restaurant know you will be late – otherwise you may lose your table (and your ocean view).

If you have a special seating request book early, because if sunset watching or oceanfront dining are among the reasons you come to Anguilla, the “front row” tables are always the first to be snapped up.


insider intel limin' / D I N E & L I M E

Prices are displayed in US dollars without service charge – which ranges from 10 to 20% and will be added to your bill.

Late diners take note. Dining time in Anguilla follows North American standards and lunch is often served between 12 and 2:30 with dinner between 6 and 9. Last seatings are often at 8:30, so do not expect to find a 9:30 or 10:00pm table unless you…. You got it, reserve!

If your idea of perfect relaxation is to browse an outstanding selection of wines and premium liquor and to indulge in wine speak with an expert – we suggest you pop into Les Grands Vins de France and chat with Nathalie or Donnette. Sample one of the wines available to taste (a different red and white each week), or look out for one of their regular wine events – like the annual Beaujolais Nouveau party!

BEER LOVERS NEW AND EXCITING for the season is the brilliant AXA Brewhouse, a cute bar/micro brewery situated on the eastern side of the Sandy Ground Pond (the site of the previous Road Well Café). Open from 11am until… Indulge in their signature, deliciously citrussy AXA Ale and expect at least 3 others on tap at all times – including seasonal beers.

LIT LOUNGE NEW on the scene, stylish, cool, comfortable beachfront hangout offering cocktails and a limited menu of sliders currently, with plans to offer beachfront pizza and BBQ soon. Look out for live music nights, Karaoke and full moon parties. Lime from sunset to sunrise at Lit Lounge.

ELVIS’ BEACH BAR, Sandy Ground Institution with famous namesake barkeep, late hours and now delicious Mexican food, like their giant killer nachos and famous fish tacos, day into night. Also great for playing games, hanging out, dancing in the sand and generally having a good time. 84

Roy's

ROY’S BAYSIDE GRILL is famous for food – fabulous fish and chips, great grilled steaks and always-fresh seafood, but recently, under the next generation of Claire and Patrick, they’ve really upped the ante on the Liming aspect! Live music most Saturdays and Sundays, Trivia Tuesdays, Burger Wednesdays and our favourite, Thirsty Thursdays (delicious $5 margaritas, mojitos and martinis) join old favourite Friday Happy Hour, to give you a weeks’ worth of reasons to visit and enjoy a meal or drink.


SANDBAR’S TASTY TAPAS, delicious cocktails and excellent wine list make it an easy choice for dining on the ocean. It’s also a great liming spot, as the charming bar is a great hangout, offering daily happy hour from 4:30 to 6:30. If you like live music visit on Thursdays to hear the talented Vere Musiq. CUTE WAVES ON Meads Bay is a welcoming beach bar in what feels like a hidden spot, but is really only a few steps along the beach from the Four Seasons! Live music from up and coming star Shara Vallee and others, DJ nights and happy hour specials make this an affordable way to lime on Anguilla’s “five star” strip. The food is yummy too – we love the loaded fries, but if you want something more healthy, they offer hearty salads and occasional specials like local mahi ceviche.

MOKING AROUND ANGUILLA WITH @THEONLYVANESSA

J

ust when I thought living on an island couldn't get any more picturesque... enter the Mini Moke. I felt like I was on vacation when I got to drive a Moke for the day thanks to Moke Anguilla. An aesthete’s dream, their fleet offers a variety of tropical pops of colour for your palate (see @moke.anguilla on Instagram for more). The first order of business when you rent your Moke is to figure out where exactly you should go. All the must-see spots in Anguilla are even more fun in a Moke. I was able to appreciate the island anew; I saw things

I never noticed before because the open design of this unique vehicle gets you even closer to the scenery and culture. My spin around the island included stops at The Arch, The Little Pink House, drinks on Meads Bay, lunch in Sandy Ground, and a drive through historic South Valley. An enhanced experience of Anguilla is found when you are driving around with the sun on your face and the wind blowing your hair. Check out my blog, VanessaExplainsItAll.com for more of my Moke day. If you’re interested in experiencing Anguilla by Moke, see the info on page 143.

WHAT TO DO ON A RAINY DAY

W

ho better to ask for tips for what to do off the beach than an Anguilla resident who is also an international travel blogger and Instagram influencer? Shannon Kircher’s day job is Director of Marketing for Frangipani Resort & Villas. Her ‘outside’ job is writing blogs and taking pictures for her travel website thewanderlusteffect.com and associated Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages where she writes about

her international escapes with husband, Scott, as an expat in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. If you don’t subscribe/follow her yet – please do. In the meantime, enjoy this edited blog post on what to do in Anguilla when our normally sunshiny days are replaced with temporary downpours. Read more from Shannon at www.thewanderlusteffect.com

What do you do on a rainy day in Anguilla? While the island feels like it’s designed for sunshine with the beaches, boating, and al fresco dining being major draws, it turns out that a bit of rain may present an opportunity to delve into a few experiences that may otherwise sit on the back burner. Read on for some inspiration on 8 things to do on a rainy day in Anguilla.

1

ENJOY SOME SPA DAY R&R

When it comes to indoor activities on Anguilla, my mind immediately goes to the fabulous spas on the island that lend themselves perfectly to a luxurious spa day experience. You know those hours-long packages that you dreamily read about in the brochure? There’s no better day to enjoy a massage, facial, mani, pedi, or all of the above in a spa setting. See page 96 for a round up of some of the island’s best spa and wellness options.

VISIT THE ANGUILLA HERITAGE COLLECTION MUSEUM

While Anguilla isn’t an island known for its museums and cultural pursuits, the Heritage Collection Museum on the island’s eastern end receives constant praise by those who visit. Curated and operated by local writer and historian, Colville Petty, the museum shares a timeline of Anguilla’s history and evolution with Mr. Petty as your guide. Hours at the museum vary so call first to ensure that the museum is open during the time you’re hoping to visit.

GET PAINTING WITH ANGUILLARTS

Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, AnguillArts’ paint parties will bring out your inner painter. I’ve always been a fan of the arts, but my husband was certain that his artwork would be a bit questionable upon completion. Fast forward a few hours and a few morning mimosas, and everyone had gorgeous paintings to take home… plus many laughs along the way. Karen Venditti, who owns and operates AnguillArts directs the class and helps provide some guidance.

GET BACK TO BASICS

Books, cards, board games — get back to basics with your entertainment options if the idea of watching a movie indoors isn’t appealing. Whether you opt to stay inside or prefer to find a covered outdoor space to lounge, snatch up a good book or find some partners for a card or board game. If you’re staying at a villa or hotel on the island, ask about board games, books, or cards to see if there are any available for use.

AnguillArts have added a new range of paintings for you to try your hand at, and add to your collection, including a goat, a horse and plenty of new ocean views

SHOP THE ISLAND’S BOUTIQUES

While Anguilla isn’t the shopping capital of the Caribbean by any means, there are still plenty of wonderful boutiques to spend a few hours exploring the island’s offerings. If you’ve rented a car, embrace a rainy day in Anguilla by hitting the road to take in the range of options available: Visit Petals Boutique at Frangipani Resort for some Anguilla-logoed favorites (like the jerseys shown above). Find perfect souvenirs from the island at Sea Spray Boutique (and grab a rum punch! See point #8 below.) Visit Irie Life for some great Anguilla tees and beachwear. Head to Bijoux (Sandy Ground or their satellite location in Shoal Bay) for jewelry and French-inspired beachwear.

TAKE IN THE ART SCENE

If scoping out art is more up your alley than creating art (see #3 above), then take a rainy day in Anguilla as an opportunity to scope out some of the island’s art galleries. There are a surprising amount of offerings including the welcoming and colourful Lynne Bernbaum Gallery. Quintessence has opened a fantastic new gallery/ shop. Browse paintings, books, clothes and beautiful objects with a glass of complimentary fizz before heading onto the hotel for lunch or dinner.

ADVENTURE TO FIND THE ISLAND’S BEST RUM PUNCH

Bijoux Quintessence Gallery

Every visitor to Anguilla will know that a rum punch is the de facto national drink of the island, and the ever-present drink comes in many forms. Head out with a DD or hire a taxi to help you crawl your way across the island on an adventure to seek out the island’s best rum punch. From west to east, here are some of my favorite places for a rum punch: Ocean Echo Restaurant – The Rumzie is wonderful and the covered space is great on a rainy day. Ferry Boat Inn – views of St. Martin and a classic rum punch. Sea Spray Boutique where you can can shop while you sip and at Sandbar Restaurant – Try their signature “Sandbar”, which is a bit like a frozen rum punch!

nguilla is home to an amazing array of spas and boasts some of the best practitioners in the world. Here’s a roundup of signature spa treatments and things to make you feel really, really good.

SIGNATURE TREATMENT The Taino Bathing Ritual pays homage to the Taino Indians who layered their bodies with herbs, fruits, muds and salts then lay in the sun to dry before bathing again to help remove toxins. During the five-step treatment, guests journey through different temperature changes and are layered with natural elements to hydrate the skin, boost the immune system, and offer an overall sense of well-being and relaxation.

ZEMI BEACH HOUSE’S crown jewel is undoubtedly its awardwinning Zemi Thai House Spa, housed in a 300-year-old Thai house. There are five private spa suites where guests may choose from a menu of customized therapeutic massages, holistic body treatments, signature healing rituals and facials. The spa’s juice bar is tucked away in the ancient rice barn of the Thai Tea House.

Marissa combines biotherapy techniques with massage for a unique treatment that is designed to promote general wellbeing. Marissa’s fans also rave about her reflexology skills, and local resident and author of One Way Ticket, Melinda Goddard, calls her a “stress buster.”

Y PARENTS, VAN and Laurie, have been visiting Anguilla since 1984. I started coming to the island when I was 5 years old. Since then we have stayed in the same double room at Shoal Bay Villas every year. My husband, Graham, has been coming with us on our trip to Anguilla since we started dating 9 years ago. When Graham and I got engaged we agreed there couldn't be a more magical place to have our wedding than on the small island of Anguilla. With a total of 55 guests, we filled Shoal Bay Villas, and it couldn't have been more perfect to have all our favourite people in one place! On the evening everyone arrived, Graham cooked fresh fish from Island Harbour on the resort’s grills and we all hung out by the pool and on the beach. The next night, Preston Hughes Transportation took us all to Dad's Bar and Grill

108

www.trueanguilla.com

in Sandy Ground for an incredible ribs and fish buffet, and we ended the evening at Elvis' Beach Bar where the famous Mamma Wanna was waiting for us and fun was had by all! On our wedding day, Graham was able to schedule a massage onsite at Shoal Bay Villas with Jepun Bali Massage and I went next door to Manoa to get ready so that Graham and I didn't see each other. Later, the guests proceeded down to the point of Shoal Bay East – which I like to call ‘The Edge of the World.’ Dumpa played "Under The Sea" from the Little Mermaid on the Steel Pan as we walked down the aisle. There is an old Kentucky tradition (where I am from) to bury a bottle on the site of the ceremony in hopes of good weather. Graham and I buried a bottle of old Pyrat Pistol Rum that we collected on the island 6 years ago and had been saving for a special day.

After the ceremony, we joined our friends and family for cocktail hour under the portico at Shoal Bay Villas. One of our favourite moments was sitting on the porch of our room, as we do every day and every evening, chatting with our closest friends and family before we were sent off with sparklers to lead the walk along the beach to Madeariman for the reception. We enjoyed a delicious dinner of fresh crayfish, peas and rice, vegetables and “Greer’s parents started coming to the villas around the mid-80’s and she started coming here as a toddler, we think of them as Shoal Bay Villas family so we were thrilled when she decided to hold her wedding here and happy that it was everything she hoped it would be.” — Kathy Haskins, Shoal Bay Villas

johnny cakes followed by Geraud's incredible chocolate, lemon, and coconut wedding cake. Boss and the Horsepower band played, and the staff – who are like family to us now after going to the restaurant for 10 years, joined in the fun, and we ended the evening with lots of dancing. Our beautiful wedding photography was by Susan Croft. We cannot thank the island enough for welcoming our wedding and taking such good care of us. True hospitality at its finest, and everything was fun, causal and absolutely more than we could have ever asked for.

“Anguilla is the most beautiful island with the nicest people in the world, which has brought has back for 35 years.” — Van and Laurie Thompson

WEDDING MAKEUP

Your wedding is one of the most important and memorable days of your life. As you spend time figuring out the finest details, be sure to think about your makeup artist as well. Whatever you do, unless you are skilled at it, don't do your own makeup that day! Here are some tips to help select the best professional for you:

1

RESEARCH THEM Anguilla has a number of professional makeup artists. Take a look at their websites and Instagram accounts to see examples of previous work.

112

www.trueanguilla.com

2

MAKE A PHONE CALL AND FEEL THEM OUT Find someone you get good vibes from. He or she will spend a fair amount of time with you, so make sure you can have a conversation and feel at ease with that person.

3 4

FIND INSPIRATION Search sites like Pinterest or Instagram for makeup looks that you like. DO A TRIAL Meet with your artist and try out your makeup look. Your artist should be able to tweak the look and customize it to suit your face.

5

SPEAK UP! If you love it or hate it, let your artist know. A professional artist will listen to you and make adjustments based on any allergies, sensitivities – or simply your opinion – to give you the best result and make you look beautiful.

nguilla is now offering two different Residency-By-Investment Programmes: the High Value Resident (HVR) Programme for tax residency and the Residence-by-Investment (RBI) Programme for permanent residency. A recent article in Global Citizen magazine says that “Anguilla… has become the ultimate destination where luxurious living meets financial freedom” and that the island’s “two Residency-by-Investment Programmes bring opportunity within and freedom beyond for ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWI) whose lifestyle is unbound to a single location.” An official agency called Select Anguilla has been set up to administer these initiatives for the Government of Anguilla. The agency will provide guidance in the first instance and ultimately bring legitimacy and integrity to the programmes through strict due diligence background checks. Select Anguilla

118

www.trueanguilla.com

is supported by key players in the investment migration industry — Arton Capital, Latitude Group and Apex Capital. UHNWIs wishing to take advantage of Anguilla’s HVR programme must: pay US$75,000 per year in annual worldwide income tax to Anguilla’s Treasury; own and maintain property in Anguilla valued over US$400,000; establish links with Anguilla such as bank accounts and memberships; spend a minimum of 45 days in Anguilla annually; and declare not to have spent over 183 days in any other sole country. Individuals or families interested in the RBI programme can either make a contribution to the island’s Capital Development Fund starting at US$150,000 or purchase real estate at a minimum value of US$750,000. If you would like to learn more about these programmes, visit www.selectanguilla.com, or contact Philip Kisob, CEO of Select Anguilla.

IMAGINE YOUR OWN PERSONAL SANCTUARY ON ANGUILLA FROM THE WORLD’S LEADER IN LUXURY HOSPITALITY. ON THE CARIBBEAN’S MOST EXCLUSIVE ISLAND. THE PREMIER ISLAND LIVING EXPERIENCE YOU’VE ALWAYS DREAMED OF.

A

nguilla has a special way of making you feel at home, whether it’s your first visit or your hundredth. Interestingly, Anguillians are also known as “Belongers,” a legal term, but also an apt description, because Anguilla, with its warm welcome, intimacy and authenticity, makes people feel as though they really do belong here. Carlo Parisi and Cristina Savoldi Bellavitis from Milan have found a true home at Four Seasons Private Residences Anguilla. Their piece of paradise lies within the beautiful Four Seasons Resort, which spans nearly a half-mile of beach and coastline between Meads and Barnes Bays. As home owners, they not only have access to the island’s incredible beaches and outstanding culinary scene, but also to the signature service and world-class amenities of this leading resort; including 4 restaurants, 3 pools, 2 beaches, a state of the art fitness centre, an expansive outdoor sports facility, a Kids for All Seasons club, and an ocean-side spa. “Anguilla brings out the best in us. We daydream about the island when we’re not here,” says Cristina. “We have what we call the ‘Anguilla crave.’” All of the Residences are stunning, featuring Kelly Wearstler’s signature design – a one-of-a-kind aesthetic that feels resort casual and modern chic at the same time. The silver travertine of the resort compliments and draws one’s eye toward the real star of the show: the turquoise crystal water meeting the clear blue skies on the island’s best beaches. Beaches that are never more than steps from all Residences. In the evenings, if not enjoying their own generous pool deck or patio, owners wander over to the Sunset Lounge to join resort guests as they relish another perfect Anguillan sunset, safe in the

knowledge that this is an experience they can repeat as often as they wish. An experience owners from all over the world crave when they are away from their Anguilla home-away-from-home. Four Seasons Private Residences Anguilla are available for Full Ownership in a range of residential styles, with prices from $825K for a Deluxe Studio to $10M USD for a 5 Bedroom Beachfront Villa. Easy, turnkey ownership benefits include a permanent, on-site Director of Residences and dedicated Residential Service team always available to assist with owner needs. There is also an optional rental programme that allows owners to rent their space through the hotel when not in residence. If you are seeking an island paradise to call home, now is the perfect time, because

“ANGUILLA BRINGS OUT THE BEST IN US. WE DAYDREAM ABOUT THE ISLAND WHEN WE’RE NOT HERE. WE HAVE WHAT WE CALL THE ‘ANGUILLA CRAVE.’” — Carlo Parisi and Cristina Savoldi Bellavitis Anguilla and Four Seasons Private Residences Anguilla are ready for you to belong.

potential. Villa Mañana in Seafeathers is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath villa with views of St. Martin, St. Barts, Statia, and on a clear day St. Kitts/Nevis. Built in 2005, it is a traditional West Indian design utilizing ample amounts of Anguilla stone and gingerbread trim in its architectural features. 3 bed, 3 bath Banana Wind is built in a striking, contemporary style designed to take advantage of the stunning views and cooling trade winds, on almost 200 feet of oceanfront on Round Rock Bay (at Lockrum).

ADRIAN KOBBE OF GumbKo International: “Anguilla continues to appeal due to its still unspoilt nature and unique place in the market – no other small island has 5 of the world’s leading luxury hotel properties. There is still plenty of land available in interesting places and as an architect I can help the buyer see the potential in the land.” Adrian also has some “very good quality older homes in good places,” properties built in the late 80’s that have been very well maintained and are ready to move into (unless you want to change the décor) – often with large, well-established gardens and with great views, in locations like Little Harbour, Sea Rocks, Sea Feathers and Captains Ridge.

year. We have a truly varied selection of properties on the market at the moment — with prices ranging from as little as $185,000 for a ‘lock and leave’ walking distance to the sea studio, to gems like Black Pearl, with its own beach access or the comfortably priced ‘mid-isle’ Luna Danza with a swimming pool and exceptional views. Basically something for everyone.”

JACK MADDEN OF Four Seasons Private Residences: We’ve welcomed so many owners, and are projected to have the highest daily hotel rate in all of the Americas within the Four Seasons brand. Our owners do not have to worry about a thing, they can concentrate on enjoying the leisure and lifestyle opportunities their new home affords, as our contract includes full hurricane insurance with a 0% deductible.

STEVE HAINES OF Trophy Properties is very excited about the upcoming season following a banner season of closed sales. "If you are looking for this season's most remarkable value for an Oceanfront Estate Villa purchase, it is the spectacular Villa Paradise; a renowned estate with 7 bedrooms on 3.5 acres. This Trophy exclusive listing features breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and the neighboring island of St. Maarten, a new 28’ x 69’ infinity edge pool spilling over to the Caribbean Sea, and considering the newly reduced price, I encourage those interested to call now as it will not last long. Alternatively, if living in a fully turnkey Five-Star Resort is more appealing, we also have exclusive listings for resale at the Four Seasons Resort and Residences with pricing starting at just under $700,000.” 124

STILL THE ONE…

MELINDA GODDARD AND Terry Brady fell in love with Anguilla in 1990. “I've kept a photo of that first cottage on my desk ever since. Just a glance centers you all over again,” she reflects when asked about discovering the island. As chronicled in, One Way Ticket: From America to Anguilla, they traded hectic corporate jobs for “remote” consulting and mentoring in 2002. Working where many vacation, they

embraced this “sophisticated, eclectic paradise and people” as their only home. What do they love most after all these years? “Friendships we never thought possible… and the serenity of morning walks on Shoal Bay, where the sandpipers ‘scissor skitter’ at the water’s edge.” What’s next? “We’ll celebrate 40 years together in 2020. I love him more than oxygen and still love Anguilla. You could say ‘still the One’ about both!”

SETTING UP HOME IMAGINE WORKING FROM Anguilla: Grab a coffee, spend a few hours doing what needs to be done from your oceanview office, then take a 2 minute commute to a rejuvenating dip or lunch by the pool. Sound appealing? Visit the team at the Kobbe Design shop in The Valley for inspiration. They represent an impressive selection of stylish office furniture and window treatments as well as tried and tested Caribbean weather appropriate furniture from trusted brands out of USA, Brazil, Canada and Italy. 126

DOING BUSINESS IN ANGUILLA ANGUILLA IS ONE of the ‘cleanest’ financial jurisdictions in the world with two huge advantages: no Corporate Tax and a very efficient and professional cadre of service providers. Steve Garlick of Anguilla Finance, the organisation whose role is to market and develop Anguilla's financial services products throughout the world says, “all financially astute people should know where Anguilla is and what it provides... especially in the areas of Company Formation and Management, Trusts, Mutual Funds, Foundations and Captive Insurance.”

Donald and Fiona Curtis

IF YOU WOULD like to know more about setting up or doing business in, or internationally from, Anguilla — talk to business consultant Fiona Curtis of Counsel Limited, a fully licensed fiduciary with over 25 years of experience who will give you no-obligation advice. Fiona suggests when you purchase a home in Anguilla, even if you are not considering renting it out at the moment, you look into forming a company to purchase your property from the get-go to “keep your options open,” so if you change your mind and decide to rent it out at a later date, you can. It's also useful for estate planning purposes and asset protection. Having a company in Anguilla also allows you to open a bank account with one of the Local banks.

YOU CAN RELAX knowing your new property will be well protected when you are not in Anguilla, local rental agents provide excellent villa and house management programmes and local insurance agents, Donald Curtis of CIB, Curtis Insurance Brokers and Chantal Piazzi of Island Insurance, have excellent reputations and insure many of the island's leading properties and homes. One of the reasons Anguilla bounced back faster than neighbouring islands from super-storm Irma was because these two professionals were on island and processing claims immediately — with pay-outs occurring in record time. 128

PRICKLY PEAR CAYS

BY AIR One of the special things about Anguilla is that large airplanes don’t fly here – you have to transfer by smaller planes from St. Maarten (SXM), Puerto Rico (SJU), Antigua (ANU) or St. Kitts (SKB), 4 of the Caribbean’s best-serviced and most reasonable destinations to fly into from North America, South America, United Kingdom, and Europe.

Simply call or go online and book your transfer with companies like Calypso Charters and Gotcha Garfield Seatours. Once you clear St. Maarten immigration and collect your bags you will be met in the arrival hall of the airport by a representative who will transfer you and your bags to your boat a few minutes away via taxi.
