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.

Come Sail Away

As you may know, Anguilla’s national sport is sailing. Get a first-hand experience of what it’s like to sail on a traditional West Indian sloop with the crew at Tradition Sailing. Take the tiller, raise the sails or simply relax as they top off your champagne. Arrange an afternoon snorkel, sunset sail or for the more adventurous, a day at Prickly Pear islands for prime snorkeling and the most delicious lobster on Anguilla.
