For a Caribbean Hotel with HistoryThe architecturally striking Malliouhana, which put Anguilla on the map for luxury travelers in 1984, reopened in November 2014 after a major renovation. Everything is lighter and brighter, from the opened-up terraces to the robin’s egg−blue walls. The “Garden of Eden” paintings by Haitian artist Jasmin Joseph, however, still grace the walls of most rooms, as they have since the inn’s opening. From $470.
Update: Malliouhana plans to re-open in April 2018 following the impact of Hurricane Irma. If you wish, you may donate to their employees or to the entire community of Anguilla.

Perched on a craggy cliff jutting between Meads Bay and Turtle Cove Beach, Malliouhana has views of the glittering aquamarine sea that will hypnotize guests from the moment they arrive to its chic porte cochere. The bright, cerulean open-air lobby with mirrored mosaic-tile flooring tumbles out to a deck where tiered infinity pools are punctuated by ruffled yellow umbrellas, and a cliffside restaurant serves fresh seafood and farm-to-table fare that could just as easily be at home on the Côte d’Azur. Built in 1984, this is Anguilla’s original luxury resort, which reopened in 2014 after a three-year closure and 18-month renovation by Auberge Resorts Collection. While guests may find it hard to take their eyes off the dazzling Caribbean, the 44-room boutique hotel’s interior design offers its own portal to the sublime with an aesthetic that can best be described as tropical eclectic. Guest rooms are painted sorbet yellow or robin’s-egg blue and boast white lacquer four-poster beds, mural panels by Haitian artist Jasmin Joseph, Venetian glass lamps, and sea-green marble bathroom vanities. All of this somehow swirls together for a look that’s both regal and untamed.

Malliouhana, an Auberge Resort
Anguilla’s famed Malliouhana hotel reopens this month after a two-year remodel by Auberge Resorts. The 44 rooms and suites have been updated in pale yellow and cool aquamarine colors, with subtle touches that evoke the glamour of the 1950s. Families should request the two-bedroom suite, which sleeps up to six people. The resort is known for its location, perched on a bluff above meads Bay, which is great for snorkeling, and the secluded turtle Cove beach. Now, guests can also cool off in a two-tiered infinity pool. Other additions include a 15,000-square-foot spa, an open-air cliffside restaurant, and a rum lounge.
