Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Anguilla

Barnes Bay, West End Village, n/a Anguilla, AI2640, Anguilla Fodor's Choice

On a promontory over 3,200 feet of pearly sand on Barnes Bay, the newly reflagged showpiece (formerly the Viceroy) wows international sophisticates. For an over-the-top experience, book one of the spacious two- to five-bedroom villas, complete with private infinity pools and hot tubs, indoor-outdoor showers, electronics galore, and gourmet professional kitchens stuffed with high-end equipment, not to mention house managers who keep things running smoothly. But even standard rooms (studios and one-bedroom suites) are grand and brimming with luxuries. The five restaurants range from beach barbecue to banquet, and snacks and cocktails in the Sunset Bar are a must. You'll find a full spa, gym, yoga center, a camplike kid's program, and tons of activities. The warm but professional management keeps everything as cool and suave as the guests. If you want a funky, toes-in-the-sand, umbrella-drink escape, look elsewhere; this place is posh. Try a package that includes breakfast.
