Ku Anguilla

Ku Anguilla is one of those hotels that seems like a dream, but it's a very real place. One of the top-rated hotels in the Eastern Caribbean surrounds you with luxury and style, as well as amazing views. All of the suites, as well as the beach-side restaurant, spa, and shops are bright airy airy, with attentive service to match.

The Ku Hotel in Anguilla is located eight miles away from the neighboring island of Saint Martin, on the island's scenic northeastern coast. This chic place to stay, modeled after the style of Saint Barts or Miami, overlooks Shoal Bay Beach, a two-mile strip of powdery soft white sand. The name comes the Native Arawak's word meaning "sacred place," a nod to the nearby ceremonial grounds of Fountain Cave.

This boutique hotel features 27 different suites, all in view of the ocean. Some open right up to Shoal Bay, while others feature balconies overlooking the lovely stretch of white sand bordering the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. You'll have plenty of room to stretch out among the 775 square feet, as each suite features a full kitchen, a private bedroom, as well as a bathroom and sitting room. With white and pale blue as the accents for the walls, linens, and curtains, the space of the Ku Hotel in Anguilla seems even roomier.

The comforts of home are readily available; you can keep in touch with the outside world through the radio, TV, and Internet access. Perhaps you'll want to post some pictures online that will make all your friends just a little bit jealous. In the bathrooms, there's posh robes and bathrobes for guests to enjoy. Gourmets and those who like to cook will appreciate the kitchen, complete with a blender, refrigerator, stove, and everything else you need to put together a meal. Shopping at the nearby outdoor markets will complete the list of things you need to make a good meal.

If you don't want to do any cooking on your Caribbean holidays or you want a break, you can enjoy a meal at the beachfront restaurant. The eatery is open in the morning, serving fresh fruit, eggs, muffins, and coffee. You also can request breakfast service in your suite. The midday meal features light favorites such as salads and sandwiches. If you're planning on doing some exploring, the staff can pack a picnic lunch to take along. At the end of the day, dinner features dishes that fuse together French and Caribbean influences. The bar of the Ku Anguilla is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, even drawing visitors from other resorts. Lunch at the Ku is one of the most exciting events on the schedule here. This festive weekly celebration features upbeat music played by local musicians.

Guests of the Ku Hotel in Anguilla will find a lot to do beyond their rooms and the restaurant. You can spend some time shopping at one of the resort's retail areas. The complex also includes a well-stocked boutique and a dive shop. Also at the Ku Anguilla, you can get a good workout at the gym or the freshwater pool that overlooks the beach. The spa will help you relax after time in the sun or on the treadmill.

Excellent snorkeling is available just off the coast, while more experienced scuba divers will appreciate the advice of the expert diver who can lead trips to some interesting reefs and ship wrecks just below the surface of those beautiful blue waters. You can make arrangements for glass-bottom boat tours for those who want to see the colorful marine life without strapping on a snorkel.

If you want to do some exploring beyond the confines of Shoal Bay Beach, the staff is eager to help you with car rentals and directions leading you to any place you want to go, including the ferry to Saint Martin.
