Anguilla is celebrating turning 50 by introducing a new app, “Anguilla App,” that offers deals across the island, from restaurants to lodging to shopping to on-island attractions.
The more than 60 offers are said to represent a savings of more than $15,000. The free Anguilla App is available in the Google Play and Apple App stores and can be installed in a variety of devices, from phones to tablets.
This app will constantly be updated with offers, and will allow visitors to pick and choose the ones that pique their interest, as well as discover some activities or opportunities they might not even be aware of.
Examples include $50, three-course prix fixe menus at leading culinary establishments; spa discounts; complimentary room nights and discounts at various properties; special rates on private chefs at villas; discounts on sports equipment rentals; and gift cards. For ease of use, the app has a filter feature between transportation, accommodations, dining, shopping and entertainment.
The Anguilla App will continue to be updated as the framework to support other tech has already been built. Other features of the app will include an interactive map; a user profile posting walls and ability to ‘friend’ people; a chat function; virtual reality tours; implementation of location ‘check-ins’ and linking to social media.
The "Anguilla 50" celebrations mark the 50th anniversary of Anguilla’s secession from the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, and decision to chart her own path to prosperity as a British Overseas Territory. To recognize and celebrate this golden anniversary, from May through April 2018, Anguilla will be promoting the culture, history and magic of the island, both at home and abroad.
