1 – What is your all-time favorite experience at Cap Juluca?

My experience at Cap Juluca was spectacular from the moment I discovered the existence of this place until the final minute of my checkout. I loved the unique way everyone treated me from the beginning to end. They have sensational methods of captivating their guests! No doubt my favorite experience at Cap Juluca was being able to leave my rooms open, feeling the ocean breeze with the possibility of rushing out at any moment to throw myself into Maundays Bay. One of the best beaches in Anguilla was right in front of my amazing room. I have visited more than 60 nations, and I can state with deep certainty some of the best treatments I’ve received on my international travels have been at Cap Juluca, no doubt one of the best resorts in the Caribbean Sea.

CJ: What is your all-time favorite experience at Cap Juluca?

KM: The night Omari Banks performed a cappella at our table at Blue at the end of the evening! It had been one of those perfect evenings—a glorious breeze, a delicious dinner and just the right amount of wine left to sip as we listened to Omari’s final set. He stopped by our table to say hello before he left, but ended up joining us for a moment. Someone mentioned a song and suddenly he was singing it, softly, clearly, beautifully.

CJ: What is your all-time favorite experience at Cap Juluca?

BH: I’ve had so many magical moments at Cap Juluca. I love just sitting on my deck watching the sea. But in some ways, stepping off property with the hotel’s stellar staff defined my recent stay most of all. We boarded the resort’s boat for a sunset sail anchoring for a bit in Little Bay, sipped champagne and snorkeled. We watched crazies jump from the cliffs, never contemplating to participate. We were having far too much fun with our entourage. Kudos to Elvis who made the jaunt magic.

CJ: What’s your most memorable indulgence at the resort?

BH: I love Cap Juluca – from the bounty in the gift shop to the way the staff remembers you from last time and truly wants to know how you are feeling. The live music, the clapping of waves against the shore, the croaking of frogs – it’s all a beautiful, barefoot-elegant kind of indulgence.
