Fodor's Expert Review Malliouhana, An Auberge Resort
Meads Bay, , Anguilla
This classic luxury hotel perched cliff-side over beautiful Meads Bay beach has been transformed by Auberge Resorts into a fancifully modern beach paradise. The jungle/undersea decor, enlivened by cheerful Haitian folk art, feels a little like a Mermaid fantasy, but it fits the perfect beach location, and every minute is enriched by the friendly, helpful staff, the first-rate food, and the able management. There's an out-with-the-old-in-with-the-new ethos here, and healthy, farm-to-table cuisine shows the management's California roots. Twin heated infinity pools have luxe lounges, and the cocktail bar serves up tasty rum concoctions most of the day. Huge bedrooms and new bathrooms are pretty and relaxing. There is morning yoga on the pool deck, a fitness center and a spa, as well as tennis and paddleboarding for the happily active clientele.
