The Italian family who owns Cuisinart kitchen appliances also happens to have a passion for Anguilla. The CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa is nestled on Rendezvous Bay and boasts an impressive hydroponic farm with 44 varieties of lettuce, tomatoes, and herbs. Choose some ingredients for a custom smoothie and whip them up in the namesake food processors. For a unique gastronomic experience, guests can arrange a tour of the farm followed by a cooking class with the executive chef. The resort’s 98 suites and villas, spread out along the coast, look more Grecian than Caribbean in white stucco with terra-cotta tile floors and blue domed roofs. The spacious all-suite abodes boast oceanfront balconies with views of nearby St. Martin on the horizon and oversize bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. With five restaurants, a golf course, tennis courts, beachside water sports, swimming pools, and a full-service spa, guests technically never have to leave the resort. However, it's conveniently positioned a short stroll on the beach from Anguillian reggae legend Bankie Banx’s delightfully ramshackle Dune Preserve beach bar, where Banx and others perform weekly.
