Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts in conjunction with investment firm Starwood Capital Group has just announced today that they will be taking over the Viceroy Anguilla hotel in the Caribbean, making the transition when the hotel closes in August, and reopening it as the Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Anguilla in October 2016.
The quiet island of Anguilla remains one of the only islands in the British West Indies to maintain an embargo on high rise hotels, casinos, and cruise ships. Guests are instead treated to tranquil beaches and secluded bays.
The property is situated beachfront on the west side of the island. When the property reopens as a Four Seasons, it will offer 166 guest rooms and residences, including 5,000 square foot villas and vacation rental units. The property also has a spa, pool, and boasts watersport activities.
Right now it looks like prices for Viceroy Anguilla start at $500 a night for regular rooms, residences start at $1,085, and villas (four and five bedrooms divided between two levels) start at $1,800, and there is no word yet on the new Four Seasons pricing. Currently, even the lowest category room comes with custom designed bed and 483 square feet.
The Four Seasons Anguilla will join the Four Seasons Nevis as the second Four Seasons property in the Caribbean.
The Viceroy Anguilla in the Caribbean consistently gets rave reviews for the rooms and amazing resort with most disappointments stemming from customer relations/service onsite. With the takeover by Four Seasons it will be interesting to see how the new dynamic will change the viewpoint of guests.
