Flag Luxury Properties has engaged Baccarat Hotels and Residences, a subsidiary of Starwood Capital Group to operate its exclusive ultra-luxury hotel and residences on the island of Anguilla, British West Indies.The property will be named The Baccarat Hotel and Residences at Temenos, Anguilla and will be the first of its kind in the Caribbean.
The Baccarat Hotel and Residences at Temenos, Anguilla will include a 114-key ultra-luxury hotel and an 18,800-square-foot world-class spa and a fitness center. Within the hotel there will be 50 oceanfront residences. Guests and residents will enjoy personal exclusive services and signature Baccarat aesthetics. The 286-acre resort also includes 18 estate homes, 10 villas, 38 Spa Villas along with a Greg Norman-designed championship golf course—Anguilla’s first and only course.
The Temenos Golf Club, managed by Troon Golf opened in 2006 and has quickly become well known for its breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and nearby St. Maarten, along with its dramatic and challenging terrain and other features. The full-service 28,000 square foot clubhouse features Zurra—a Mediterranean-influenced restaurant managed by famed restaurant operators, authors and lifestyle experts Bob and Melinda Blanchard.
Baccarat brings to the resort its longstanding reputation as one of the world’s premier luxury brands—one of a select few that define and shape luxury. Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group, is widely recognized as one of the lodging industry’s leaders in building great brands, having led the creation of W Hotels and St. Regis brands and the reinvention of Westin when he served as Chairman and CEO of Starwood Hotels & Resorts. In addition to Baccarat Hotels, Starwood Capital is developing two other international luxury brands, Crillon Hotels and 1 Hotels & Residences.
“We are very excited to announce our participation in this outstanding resort which will quickly become one of the Caribbean’s and the world’s finest resorts,” said Mr. Sternlicht. “Nearly every amenity will be provided to our guests which we will combine with a spirit of uncompromising service. Baccarat is a 247 year old global brand. It is synonymous with perfection and beauty. Each Baccarat product is a handmade work of art by craftsmen who dedicate their lives to the creation of these masterpieces. We intend for each Baccarat Hotel to be its own work of art. In Baccarat Hotels, we aspire to be the perfect getaway experience combining memorable design executed in a relaxed, comfortable and inviting atmosphere. The Baccarat Resort in Anguilla is about the quality of light, a sublime elegance which can be appreciated in bare feet.”
“We have engaged Baccarat Hotels & Residences to help us take our project to completion and ensure that our vision for this unique property is completely fulfilled,” said Paul C. Kanavos, Chairman and CEO of Flag Luxury. “We have always intended Temenos Anguilla to be one of the world’s finest and most exclusive resorts—based not only on having the very best facilities, but also reflecting a superior level of service for our residents and guests that is unsurpassed anywhere. We know that Barry Sternlicht shares our vision and we look forward to working with him and his team to make it a reality.”
