Located on the luxe island of Anguilla, CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa is a world of Caribbean calm and culinary temptation. Editor Sophie Ritchie shares more…
Mingling Mediterranean architecture with contemporary interiors and lip-smacking cuisine, CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa’s array of 91 suites and 7 villas are ideal for those who love to both explore and recline horizontally during a holiday.
Step inside the spacious entrance and gaze around at the nautical-inspired decor, before one of the welcoming team leads you to a suite bigger than most millennials’ entire homes. If the ocean views with waves lapping up the sand don’t make you swoon, then the culinary gems certainly will.
Breakfast with the ocean breeze and devour a selection of fresh fruit and hot classics, lunch in the golden sun and enjoy dinners served against the backdrop of a burning sun lowering itself back into the water.
Guests can dine at a number of eateries; Mosaic for open kitchen entertainment; Tokyo Bay for a sushi fix; Santorini at The Clubhouse for Med-inspired mouthfuls and, lastly, for a simple bite of ceviche, the seafood-centric Beach Bar & Grill.
Spacious is an understatement. The suites at CuisinArt are both gorgeous and gigantic, where guests can easily get their daily step count just from wandering through the rooms. Modish interiors blend vibrant blue hues with white linen and floors to create a calm and rejuvenating space with huge beds and beautiful views of the mesmerising ocean.
The bathrooms, complete with walk-in showers and tubs, invite guests to preen and pamper in the elegant surroundings – with huge mirrors and row after row of toiletries to test out.
What to do
1 Yoga: Make the most of CuisinArt’s weekly schedule of activities, including regular yoga sessions. Stretch out, breathe in and feel the tension ebb away as you downward dog in the morning sunshine.
2 Robe up: Relax in the resort’s on-site steam room or spoil yourself with a spa treatment from the expert team. Pampering experiences range from organic facials to body treatments – erase the effects of long-haul flying with the Heated Bamboo Massage, designed to massage tired muscles, promote circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage.
3 Take a swing: CuisinArt plays host to the island’s only velveted sporting landscape, a Greg Norman Signature Design 18-Hole Championship Course, with over four miles of golf course to take a swing at.
