Anguilla to Expand Reopening With Return of Hotels and Resorts

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 25, 2020

Anguilla is set for the second phase of its tourism reopening in November, marked by the reopening of hotels and resorts on the island. 

Phase Two, which will begin Nov. 1, means hotels, resorts and villas will have been added to the approved and certified accommodations categories for visitors to the island. 

That will soon include some of the island’s landmark hotels, starting with the Nov. 1 reopening of Anguilla’s signature Belmond Cap Juluca resort.

Also relaunching Nov. 1 is one of the island’s leading small hotels, the Frangipani Beach Resort.

That will be followed by the relaunch of the CuisinArt Resort on Nov. 14 and the Four Seasons Anguilla on Nov. 19, among others.

The government is also introducing a “bubble” concept, which allows properties to “safely offer their guests access to a variety of approved amenities, services, and activities while they stay in place.”

These activities range from waterspouts to beach yoga and other options, “provided that they are implemented in accordance with general COVID 19 protocols, such as social distancing, sanitizing and hygiene practices,” according to a statement from the Anguilla Tourist Board. 

Anguilla first opened its borders in August with a system that included an “application” process for visitors.

That system will remain, with a revised fee schedule as low as $300 for individual travelers on trips of five days or less (that goes up to $500 for couples and higher for families).

For travelers looking to stay between six days and three months, the fee is $400 for individuals and more for couples and families. 

The fee covers two tests per person, along with surveillance and the costs associated with the requisite additional public health presence. 

Even since reopening, Anguilla is reporting no active or suspected cases on the island. 

All travelers must obtain a negative test result there to five days prior to arrival, along with COVID-related travel health insurance. 

Anguilla then performs a PCR test to all visitors on arrival, with an additional test (when applicable) on either day 10 or 14 of their trip, depending on their source country. 

Once travelers get a negative result on their second test, they are free to move about the island.
