New hotels and airport improvements coming to Anguilla
Clients looking for new accommodation options in Anguilla have some new choices for impending travel plans.
“In the west end, we have Kokoon Villas, a small enclave of 6, 2 and 3 bedroom homes overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the hills of St. Maarten,” said Haydn Hughes, Minister of Infrastructure, Communications, Utilities, Housing and Tourism for Anguilla. “Ani Private Resorts will open a second Anguilla property in 2024 — a new 15-suite resort at Shoal Bay Beach.”
In other news, Cap Juluca, a Belmond Hotel, is set to introduce a new $48 million spa.
Hughes also noted that Phase 2 of its Clayton J Lloyd International Airport expansion, which includes a new cargo facility, is well underway. Construction for the new terminal is slated to begin next month. The final part of the airport transportation will see a runway expansion and will be able to accommodate larger aircraft.
“We are optimistic about our tourism prospects,” he said.
For Canadians, the main entry point to Anguilla is a flight or ferry transfer from St. Maarten. Those who choose to travel by ferry will arrive at Blowing Point Ferry Terminal, which opened in January 2023. Travellers who arrive at Princess Juliana International Airport will also notice a new departure hall and expanded check-In hall.
Lastly, construction is underway on a new mega-yacht marina.
