Salamander Hotels and Resorts has been tapped to manage the new Aurora Anguilla Resort and Golf Club. 

Salamander, best known in the Caribbean for managing the iconic Half Moon resort in Jamaica, will assume management on April 26. 

Salamander was founded by noted businesswoman and entrepreneur Sheila Johnson, who has owned a home in Anguilla for more than a decade. 

“Anguilla is such a special place for me, and I have a deep love for the island, its people and their authentic passion for hospitality,” Johnson said. “The improvements that have already been made are incredible and Salamander is committed to helping realize Richard’s vision of excellence. We look forward to introducing Aurora Anguilla and the beauty of its people to our Salamander loyalists.” 

The 300-acre property, formerly the CuisinArt resort, was acquired by Best Buy founder Richard M. Schulze in 2020. It recently reopened after a dramatic renovation project that included a transformation of its Greg Norman-designed golf course. 

The resort is also adding a new nine-hole short course, also designed by Norman, this summer. 

“We are dedicated to making Aurora Anguilla the finest resort in the Caribbean and I’m very proud of the enhancements that we have made to date,” said Schulze. “With a new hands-on, collaborative partner, we will provide guests the thoughtful, anticipatory service and experiences for which Salamander Hotels & Resorts is renowned.” 

Schulze says his goal is to “make Aurora Anguilla appealing to a broad range of luxury travelers, inclusive of families.”
