Let the countdown begin. Malliouhana—the famous Caribbean resort that sits atop a panoramic bluff in Anguilla—will soon be showing off its new look after an extensive, three-year renovation by Auberge Resorts. As we reported last year, “The refurbishment bodes well for Anguilla and for Malliouhana, a resort that personifies the jet-setting crowd of the ’50s and ’60s. Interior designer Todd-Avery Lenahan, who redid Hotel Jerome in Aspen, says he’s using that vibe to recreate the hotel.”
The refresh has modernized the look and added the contemporary amenities expected by today's luxury traveler. To quote The Wall Street Journal: “The makeover opened up the views and replaced varnished-bamboo furnishings with a more mod-trad look, with white four-poster beds and turquoise accents.”
One of the highlights is the new Auberge Spa, housed in a separate villa with four treatment rooms. Note that complimentary fitness classes (like yoga) will be offered through the state-of-the-art fitness center. The resort has easy access to two prisine beaches, and the new pool and sunset bar will be a real attraction.
The official opening date is November 1, 2014. To celebrate, Malliouhana is running a special giveaway contest on Facebook. (“Like” the resort for a chance to win a two-night stay). For more information, visit malliouhana.aubergeresorts.com
