On Friday, that announcement came to fruition as Anguilla welcomed back one of its most popular luxury resorts.
“Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla enjoyed significant popularity with our guests from around the world during our first year of operation,” said Vince Parrotta, Four Seasons’ president of hotel operations in the Americas, in a written statement. “Travelers and and residence owners are eager to return and we’re happy to welcome them back to the beauty of Anguilla.”
Since the resort opened as the Viceroy Anguilla in 2010 and was converted to a Four Seasons in 2016, it has garnered much buzz amongst Millennial couples traveling with other couples, as well as Baby Boomers, for its intimacy and access to multiple beaches.
“We have worked tirelessly and leveraged Starwood Capital Group’s strategic relationships around the world to reopen as soon as possible,” said Roy Shanholz, vice president of hotel asset management at Starwood Capital Group. “I have been here through every step of this process and welcoming guests back and having our employees back to work has been my goal since day one.”
The latest information about the island of Anguilla can be found at the Anguilla Tourism Board’s website, www.irma.ivisitanguilla.com. The website provides information about access to the island via air and sea, ground transportation, restaurants and attractions.
“We want to get the word out that Anguilla is open for business, and this site provides a wealth of information for those planning to visit Anguilla this winter,” said Donna Banks, chairperson of the ATB, in a written release when the site was launched in October.
According a statement posted on the new page, "On September 6th, Hurricane Irma passed over Anguilla -- fortunately both Hurricane Jose and Hurricane Maria, that followed in her wake, bypassed our island. Since Irma’s passage, Anguillians have come together to rebuild the island, with the overwhelming support of our stakeholder partners, a testament to the resilience and indomitable spirit of our people. As our chief minister has promised, we will be open for Christmas, and look forward to welcoming our visitors for the festive season."
