Four Seasons’ Anguilla resort is reopening in March, the company told Caribbean Journal in a statement on Monday.
One of three Four Seasons-branded resorts in the Caribbean (the others are the brand’s Nevis resort and the recently-rebranded Ocean Club on Paradise Island in the Bahamas), the Four Seasons Anguilla is already taking bookings for stays beginning March 23.
The largest employer on the island, its opening will provide a big boost for a destination hit hard by Hurricane Irma last year.
“While the logistics of delivering to the island the volume of necessary materials and systems required to complete our repairs have been challenging, we have worked tirelessly and leveraged Starwood Capital Group’s strategic relationships around the world to reopen as soon as possible. We recognize our position as the island’s largest private employer, and also realize the success of numerous local businesses such as restaurants, air, land & sea transportation providers, local attractions, etc. is driven by our guests and we are eager to reopen to bring much needed revenue back to the island,” said Roy Shanholtz, Vice President, Hotel Asset Management of Starwood Capital Group, which owns the property. “Everything at our resort will be in the pristine condition our guests expect and our employees will be thrilled to welcome them.”
The Four Seasons first opened its doors in late 2016 after taking over what was formerly the Viceroy Anguilla.
The 35-acre resort has 181 private accommodations including a mix of villas, townhomes, penthouses, residences and suites, along with standard guest rooms.
It offers a spa, a fitness center, tennis, three pools and more than 100 private pools on a setting between Anguilla’s Barnes Bay and Meads Bay Beaches.
“We are thrilled to reopen this iconic resort in our portfolio,” stated Vince Parrotta, Four Seasons President Hotel Operations for the Americas. “This resort gained significant popularity with our guests from around the world during our first year of operation as a Four Seasons. Guests are eager to return and we’re happy to welcome them back to the beauty of Anguilla.”
