Anguilla’s Romantic HideawayWords by Samantha Ross
Anguilla is the ‘destination of destinations’ when it comes to couples searching for the classic, picturesque Caribbean beach wedding, because of the island’s serene romance. For 30 years, Malliouhana, Auberge Resorts Collection has been a destination for those looking to disappear to a place that is known by few but kept idyllic by those who do.
With one-and-a-half miles of sand the color and texture of powdered sugar, NASA reports that the bluest water in the world can be found around the islands of the British West Indies. Everywhere you turn, perfectly landscaped lush flora and fauna abound, tropical birds sing, fruit trees bloom…all to say, there is little-to-no decoration required to create an absolutely breathtaking event.
Décor isn’t the only to-do item Malliouhana can take off your list. Beyond setting the scene for every important moment of your celebration (atop a cliff where Caribbean waters crest below, in a private cove, or an open-air deck with panoramic views of the ocean at sunset), Malliouhana’s wedding specialists take extreme pride in their ability to make every detail impeccable.
Whether your destination wedding is an elopement or a full-fledged affair, Anguilla has everything to offer in island entertainment, along with a noteworthy culinary scene. (Fun Fact: Malliouhana is home to the island’s first fine-dining venue, Celeste.) Wade into the pristine waters of Meads Bay Beach, make life-long island friends at Elvis’ Beach Bar, or just float in Malliouhana’s two-level infinity pool sipping a cocktail via poolside Bar Soleil.
Anguilla is an island that truly offers the best of both worlds, boasting the same amount of fun and adventure as it does relaxation and serenity. When you’re looking for the latter, Malliouhana’s new spa can offer you peace-of-mind in spades. Where better to settle into new married life than with a post-couples massage, hand-in-hand, gazing out into the Caribbean?One of the best things about Anguilla, and the Malliouhana resort, are the people who come together to create an experience far beyond the typical. Guests return year after year to relish in the island’s welcoming embrace, incredible beauty and local smiles that are so genuine they’re contagious. When you take your wedding to Anguilla, you are guaranteed a celebration unlike any other and when you take your wedding to Malliouhana, you place it in the capable hands of people who have been celebrating love and romance since the time the resort was born. There is no better dream come true for a destination couple, and it’s all found in Anguilla.
