Quintessence Anguilla Assisting Haitian Artists With New Partnership

Quintessence Anguilla, a nine-suite boutique luxury hotel, which has one of the largest collection of Haitian artwork, has launched an initiative where guests can book a stay and help give back to Haitian artists. The property’s owner Geoffrey Fieger has partnered with Le Centre d’Art in Port Au Prince to support the center’s effort to repair the studios, homes and workshops of local artists that were destroyed in a recent earthquake.

Fieger’s art collection, which can be experienced throughout the property, includes more than 1,000 pieces by renowned Haitian artists such as Henri Robert Bresil, Albott Bonhomme and Jasmin Joseph, spanning across various mediums from sculptures and metalworks to paintings. The property recently debuted an on-site gallery where guests can purchase original works. A portion of proceeds from each room night booked at Quintessence for travel during the month of November will be donated to Le Centre d’Art.

Founded in 1944, Le Centre d’Art is a public interest institution that serves as an educational hub, gallery and collection database for emerging local artists.

“One of the main purposes of travel is to understand, appreciate, and support the cultures and communities that make us all unique,” Fieger said in a press statement. “I’ve always had a passion for Haitian artwork and greatly admire the talented artists whose work we showcase here at the hotel. After seeing the recent events in Haiti, our team at Quintessence knew we had to give back in some way. We hope that our partnership with Le Centre d’Art encourages our guests and supporters to travel for good and visit us in support of Haiti this fall.”

Set above the white sands of Anguilla’s Long Bay Beach, the Quintessence Hotel, a member of Relais & Châteaux and Virtuoso, has a collection of luxury accommodations, experiences for adventure seekers, French-Caribbean fine dining at Julian’s by Chef Dominique Thevenet and the Quintessence Art Gallery.
