DO call it a comeback!
Belmond Cap Juluca gets a marvelous makeover,
and now there’s more—and Moorish—to love
Anguilla was one of the first islands to bounce back after the devastating hurricanes of 2017—and bounced back it has. The small, skinny, 16-mile-long island is packed with resorts, but this one is tops.
The Morocco-meets-Mykonos Belmond Cap Juluca resort sits on a white-sand beach on a Caribbean island known as much for its welcoming people as its haute resorts. Large enough to keep a couple—or a couple of kids—busy for days, but small enough to feel like home, the whitewashed island enclave has just reopened after a $121 million renovation by new owner Belmond, emphasizing chic, natural materials and local Anguillan heritage. The hotel remains unrivaled in the looks department—white domes and archways frame views of vanilla sands and blue waters, backdropped by glossy gardens of palms and bougainvillea—and boasts some of the friendliest customer service on the island. It’s pure magic.
