The Viceroy in Anguilla is a stunning property with everything you would expect from a luxury resort. Sunsets and more never looked better than they did from the top of this staircase. It winds down to the ocean in case you are in the mood for a dip.

Private plunge pool
As if the sleek beautiful rooms weren't enough, the Viceroy in Anguilla offers most guests their own private plunge pool, ours happened to look out over the ocean. it was the perfect end to a day at the beach.
I spent every morning at Aleta enjoying the buffet and never got tired of it. The pastries are excellent and the spread always looks like a piece of art. The restaurant overlooks the sunrise pool at Meads Bay, between the views and the food, there isn't a better way to start the day.
A Caribbean vacation wouldn't be complete without at least one massage. The Viceroy Spa is exquisite, the staff, the services and the gorgeous views from the pool deck make for a unique experience. I spent at least 6 hours there, it's the perfect place to relax.
Every evening around 6pm I headed to sunset lounge for some great food, a cocktail and a sunset that was spectacular. Sunset lounge serves delicious sushi, Thai food and more all while overlooking the ocean in the exact spot where the sunsets every evening. As if this wasn't enough, the lounge is designed beautifully with unique sculptures and a very cool textured marble wall.
The Viceroy has done an exquisite job of designing a resort that is both simple and sleek but yet ornate and lavish. The lobby and many other parts of the hotel has the best chairs and sofa's I've seen. I spent my first day in the lobby enjoying my welcome cocktail and admiring all of the furniture I'd love to sneak back to my NY apartment.
This is the view from one of the walkways at the Viceroy Hotel in Anguilla, West Indies. It is a perfect summary of the feeling you get from staying at this amazing hotel as soon as you arrive. The water is a calm blue wind that envelopes you throughout your stay.
Amidst a sea of aspiring bars in Anguilla, Viceroy's Sunset Lounge definitely stands out as far as the setting is concerned. Though the $15 price tag on cocktails can come as a bit of a shock, their setting is enough of a draw to captivate audiences. Go before sunset to watch the vivid Anguillan colors disappear from the lounge.
If you're staying for nibbles, be sure to try their sushi which is (arguably) the best on the island. Their sushi and sashimi sampler platter ($32) is my go-to for an unbeatable sushi fix.
