Cap Juluca radiates bliss and beauty. This luxurious five-star resort, located in southwest Anguilla’s intimate crescent of Maundays Bay, is one of the most spectacularly divine hotels in the entire Caribbean. The entire resort embodies the romance and serenity of a tropical island paradise, from the palm trees lining the powdery white sand beach to the timeless Greco-Moorish architecture. It’s a sprawling property covering 179 acres so you can expect lots of seclusion and privacy and a ride to your villa in a golf cart. Coming off last year’s 28-million-dollar renovation, it’s truly a gorgeous sight to behold and a phenomenal experience to enjoy. The improvements saw upgrades to every room category, new suites, a new beachfront bar, new entertainment, and new menus. Despite the external glory, it’s what’s on the inside that counts – and the guest service, staff, and comfort level is unparalleled. So come take a load off and experience the miraculous rest and rejuvenation that flows freely from Anguilla’s Cap Juluca.
Q: What are the rooms like?
A: Freaking amazing! Every single one of the rooms located in the eighteen villas is oceanfront so you’ve got the trademark white sand beach and turquoise water right outside your doorstep. As you enter into the large covered terrace, you’re already feeling blissed out and as you step onto the cool ceramic floors of your home away from home and drop your bags, you feel you’ve finally made it. The rooms come in eight different styles from Superior, Luxury and Premium Rooms to Junior, 1-, and 2-Bedroom Suites to the Private Pool Suite and the Private Pool Villa. The rooms span in size from 700-sq-ft to 5,180-sq-ft and are all beautifully appointed with the feeling of a private residence. The Private Pool Suites and up have full kitchens, large central sitting rooms, dining atriums, oceanfront dining terraces, and even your own private freshwater swimming pool. The standard amenities in all the rooms include 40″ flat screen TVs and Bose stereo systems, Hèrmes or BVLGARI bathroom stuff, A/C, and huge marble bathrooms (some featuring jetted tubs with ocean views) and even a bidet. All the rooms also feature big windows and wooden doors that open onto the patio. Basically, these little palaces are the perfect place to vacation.
