Anguilla aims to make island more affordable

The Anguilla Tourist Board has announced a new program that will allow travellers to play like the stars without paying like them. “Charming Escapes” is a new cooperative venture between the Tourist Board and 16 select hotels, villas and inns that offers a unique and affordable way to experience what has become one of the Caribbean’s most exotic and exclusive island getaways.

“Anguilla has gained a reputation as a haven for the affluent traveller,” said Amelia Vanterpool-Kubisch. “And with our sublimely beautiful setting, some of the finest lodging and dining options in the Caribbean and a people who are as warm and welcoming as our remarkable weather, it is no surprise. However, we wanted to let travellers know that The Anguilla Experience is not reserved for the affluent alone.  Anguilla offers a range of accommodations for everyone, and our “Charming Escapes” program is designed to make finding the right place to stay an easy decision.”

The Charming Escapes designation provides a “seal of approval” for the island’s leading mid-market properties.  While each of the 16 properties is unique in its own way, many boast a variety of shared attributes, from stunning ocean views to beautifully landscaped grounds. Select properties will even arrange to have a chef come in and cook for you.  What they all share in common is a warm and friendly staff that typifies the unique and uplifting spirit of its people.

The “Charming Escapes” portfolio includes Anguilla Great House Resort, Arawak Beach Inn, Brooklands Island View Apartments, Caribbean Sea View, Caribella, Ferry Boat Inn, La Sirena Hotel, Lloyd’s Guest House, Masara Resort, Paradise Cove Hotel, Patsy’s Seaside Villas, Rendezvous Bay Hotel, Royal Palms Holiday Apartments, Shoal Bay Beach Hotel, Shoal Bay Villas and Syd-Ans.
