The Four Seasons is coming to Anguilla.
The luxury hotel company and Starwood Capital Group has announced that Four Seasons will be assuming management of the Viceroy Anguilla resort, which is owned by funds affiliated with Starwood Capital Group.
Following the hotel’s annual closure from August to October, it will reopen as the Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Anguilla.
“This is a unique opportunity to extend our presence in the Caribbean and offer luxury travelers a Four Seasons experience at the best resort property on the island,” comments J. Allen Smith, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “This is our first venture with Starwood Capital Group and we look forward to leveraging our combined strengths and shared commitment to excellence as we introduce a world-class Four Seasons resort to Anguilla later this year.”
Four Seasons has had a presence in the Caribbean for more than 25 years with the celebrated Four Seasons Resort Nevis.
The Four Seasons Anguilla will be the company’s second hotel in the region.
“Four Seasons is known all over the world for operating some of the finest luxury hotels and resorts in the world, and we’re excited to bring their level of expertise in resort and private residence management to Anguilla as we continue to make additional improvements to the already magnificent property. Four Seasons is committed to the highest standards of service and care. For our guests and current and future residential owners, we look forward to re-opening the doors of our Anguilla resort as a Four Seasons later this year and elevating Caribbean luxury to new levels,” says Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO, Starwood Capital Group.
The Four Seasons Anguilla hotel includes 166 accommodations including a combination of resort guest rooms, whole-ownership beachfront private residences, 5,000-square-foot villas and vacation rental units.
The management change will likely be a boon for Anguilla, given Four Seasons large-scale global network and marketing expertise.
Editor’s note: it’s already become one of the top Anguilla hotels.
