Exterior View - Àni Villas, Anguilla, Caribbean

Àni Villas

Home to such resorts as Cap Juluca, Anguilla has never been lacking for luxury, but two special villas on the north side of the island have raised the bar on blissful isolation.

Àni Villas—which are offered as either a separate four-bedroom or six-bedroom house or as a single, ten-bedroom home—is perched atop a cliff with sweeping views and a cooling breeze even in the most humid season. There are two pools, a tennis court, fitness room, game room, and two rooftop balconies to watch the setting sun while sipping on the chef’s special rum punch. Each villa comes with its own kitchen and airy living spaces with high ceilings and enormous sliding-glass doors leading to generous al fresco spaces, all designed to make the most of the ocean views. The predominantly white interiors are contemporary and sleek, with such unique touches as a gurgling pond underneath the stairs and a coffee table made from the gnarled roots of a teak tree. All rooms are outfitted with large-size Red Flower products.

The villas are located up on a cliff, about a 5-minute walk from a small beach and about 15 minutes away by car from the main beaches and restaurant area of Anguilla. Those unafraid of heights will love the drama of the glass-balconied overwater deck that leans far over the face of the cliff.

Guests who want to get close to Anguilla’s iconic clear-water beaches will appreciate Ànivilla’s private beach service: a staffer sets up a tent and chaises before you arrive, prepares snorkeling equipment and stays to ready lunch, which can include simple falafel sandwiches and grilled lobster. A host of amenities make life at Anivillas extra sweet: included in the rate is a seaport/airport pickup from St. Martin or Anguilla, a private chef who will map out the menus with guests pre-arrival, a 24/7 open bar and an SUV for the guest’s private use during their stay. The staff was accommodating whenever I had a request and completely unobtrusive when I didn’t.

From my solitary early-morning swim to evening cocktails on the rooftop terrace with a panoramic sunset view, I left Ani Villas feeling rejuvenated and already looking forward to my next trip to this special place.

Aerial View - CeBlue Villas & Beach Resort, Anguilla, Caribbean

CeBlue Villas & Beach Resort

CeBlue Villas offers one of the most dramatic and stunning arrivals of any property on Anguilla. The island’s typical shrub-lined roads give way to electric blue water, stretching as far as the eye can see, and it immediately becomes clear why the villas were so fittingly given the name CeBlue.

Located on the island’s northern shore, the resort is composed of eight villas, all bordering a steep path leading down to Crocus Bay Beach. The villas can be configured into anything from three up to six bedrooms, making them a great option for larger groups and multi-generational families traveling together. While those set on beachfront accommodations might prefer resorts like Cap Juluca, for some, CeBlue's incredible vistas will make up for the lack of sand right outside the front door.

The rooms, while small, are comfortable and feature a modern décor with Asian-inspired details in calming hues of beige and brown. Each duplex unit also comes complete with its own private plunge pool, a fully equipped kitchen and an airy dining room. Additionally, the villas offer 5,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space with a grill, a seating area (perfect for sunset cocktails) and plenty of lounge chairs from which to soak up the balmy Anguillan sun.

What sets CeBlue apart from other villas on the island is the property’s fully staffed lobby area, which houses a concierge desk, alongside the Blue Bar pizza restaurant, a boutique, a small gym and a spa with two treatment rooms. The service is friendly and attentive, although fast-paced travelers should note that island time prevails at CeBlue (as it does on all of Anguilla, in fact).

Crocus Bay Beach is located a short, five-minute walk or two-minute golf cart ride down a steep hill from the villas. The beach is full-service and the on-site activity manager happily assists with water sport rentals, including paddle boards, kayaks, boogie boards, snorkel gear and sunfish sailboats. Brace yourself for the climb back up to CeBlue, though, as this trek can work up a sweat. Alternatively, the resort is happy to arrange a golf cart transfer back to the villa.

In addition, while Anguilla does not boast a high level of infrastructure and is not particularly walkable, the villas are but a 15-minute drive from the island’s best beaches and restaurants, which are certainly worth exploring. Indagare members can contact our Bookings Team for assistance with car rentals, or to arrange a car and driver.

Indagare Tip: Be sure to set aside a night for a private dinner. During my stay, our chef wheeled in six live lobsters and grilled them on the terrace for us. Not only was this an incredibly special, local experience, but it also was the best lobster I’ve ever tasted.
