Viceroy Anguilla Resort & Residences To Debut In November 2009
Much-anticipated opening marks Viceroy's international debut with acclaimed interior designer Kelly Wearstler
Situated on 35 lush acres, with 3,200 feet of beachfront land along Barnes and Meads Bays, Viceroy Anguilla's offering features 166 contemporary beachfront and blufftop villas, sophisticated townhomes and opulent resort residences. Anguilla has an unmistakable sense of place where guests will revel in utter privacy yet enjoy unlimited access to the resort's myriad pleasures.
A Sensual GlamourKelly Wearstler's timeless and sophisticated interiors offer a serene setting at Viceroy Anguilla. Organic elements, such as driftwood lamps, petrified-wood tables and travertine marble floors, coupled with textiles and techniques from all over the world, including hand-carved wood pieces from Asia, hammered metalwork from India and beaded artwork from Africa, offer a striking visual contrast to the geometric lines of the architecture and grant a distinct singularity to the resort.
Guests can look forward to an eclectic array of dining experiences at Viceroy Anguilla. The resort's signature restaurant Cobà will focus on local bounty of the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean accentuated by Pan-Asian flavors. The restaurant has 180 seats, with exquisite views of Barnes Bay and Meads Bay and seating both indoors and out. The chic Sunset Lounge will be the setting for cocktails, aged rum and Cuban cigars, all best imbibed with tapas and other fare to Reggae and Calypso rhythms around an infinity pool. Carved out of the cliff side on Barnes Bay, Half Shell will be a hip and intimate enclave serving colorful frozen cocktails and cold beer on tap. An array of fresh fare will help guests keep cool, including Bento boxes of sandwiches, ceviches and fresh sushi available for on-the-go beach food.
Poised at the water's edge, the 8000-square-foot spa offers curated collections of wellness rituals that cultivate body and soul alignment, including massages, body polishes, wraps, facials, mani-pedicures and a diverse array of specialized excursions, classes and experiences. The fitness center will feature a handsome complement of sophisticated Technogym and Star Trac bikes.
The Aquatic Center offers a wide range of non-motorized water sports - including sailing, windsurfing and snorkeling. "Generation V" kids club is inspired by the concept of "families that play together, stay together" and offers meaningful family experiences that respect the environment.
Known far and wide as "tranquility wrapped in blue," the island of Anguilla is a splendid destination for the international debut of the Viceroy brand. Set in the British West Indies and surrounded by the Eastern Caribbean, the island is revered for its pristine white sand beaches – 33 all together – and crystal clear turquoise waters.
The soft opening of the resort will debut in August, featuring special preview rates. Among key elements to be experienced with the first phase of the resort opening include a portion of the villas, Sunset Lounge, Half Shell beachfront restaurant as well as the infinity pool.
The opening of Viceroy Anguilla takes the Viceroy Hotels, Resorts & Residences brand offshore for the first time and follows closely on the heels of Viceroy Miami, which opened in February. Viceroy Snowmass will debut in the Colorado Rockies in December.
Rates at Viceroy Anguilla in November start at $695 for an Ocean View Studio. For reservations, please call 866 270 7798 or visit .
