Why Zemi Beach House Is the Best Resort in Anguilla Right Now 

By: B. N. Spangler - February 16, 2024

It feels like Damian is reading our minds. Whatever we need, whether a fruit skewer or a perfectly-timed rum punch, just seems to appear out of thin air. 

The wonderfully attentive Damian is part of the team at Zemi Beach House’s spectacular pool overlooking the sugar-white sands of Shoal Bay Beach. 

It’s that rare infinity-edge pool that somehow seems to blend with the sand, making you feel that you’re practically in the ocean with every dip.

It’s our favorite hotel in Anguilla right now.

There’s a reason why visitors in the know keep flocking to Zemi Beach House, though, and it’s not just the team or the pool. 

It’s because part of this resort, part of the LXR Hotels and Resorts portfolio, is meticulously thought out, beautifully designed and impeccably run.

The hotel is part of the LXR Hotels and Resorts collection, part of the Hilton umbrella.

The 76-accommodation property, a mix of everything from rooms and suites (the design is amazing, particularly in the toes-in-the-sand rooms we stayed in) to oceanfront villas, is set on Shoal Bay East on the northern coast of the island, a quieter, more serene corner of Anguilla that feels deliciously secluded, like you’ve come upon your own private beach — but still within easy reach to all of the great eateries that make Anguilla one of the Caribbean’s culinary capitals.

And then there’s the culinary program: a beach club; the Asian-Caribbean fusion spot called Stone; a modern sushi lounge; the international eatery, 20 Knots, where you can dine on fresh yellowtail tuna tartare, a selection of Caribbean curries or lobster spaghetti. Every Wednesday night you can head to the sand for a classic Caribbean beach barbecue; Friday evenings are made for sunset happy hours; on Saturdays, it’s Sushi and Jazz. With every meal, you’ll enjoy the thoughtful wine curation of the property’s popular sommelier, Sven. 

By night, you can retire to the Rhum Room, one of the Caribbean’s leading rum bars, with a collection of almost 150 artisanal expressions led by a full-fledged “rummelier.”

It’s a 300-year-old house transported from Thailand to Anguilla.

But it’s not all about indulgence; the wellness program here is impressive, anchored by authentic 300-year-old Thai House that offers a unique collection of rituals, treatments and “escapes,” accompanied by a Moroccan hammam. 

Zemi Beach House is the essence of the modern luxury resort we’re all craving right now, with that enviable mix that caters effortlessly to those seeking wellness, activity and leisure. It’s got the intimate feel of a boutique resort with an almost impossibly broad slate of amenities — with something for every kind of luxury traveler, whether you’re traveling with your significant other or, as we did, with our kids. 

That’s no easy feat. In Anguilla, it delivers a Caribbean hotel experience that is very hard to top.
