Quintessence Hotel Anguilla launches 2018-2019 season


QUINTESSENCE HOTEL—A TROPICAL GRAND MANSION in Anguilla, British West Indies, is now taking reservations for the 2018-19 season. Q Hotel Anguilla is a new Relais & Châteaux boutique hotel overlooking the white sand beaches of Long Bay, with nine lavish suites, a five-star restaurant, two bars, a wellness spa, infinity pool, fitness center, tennis court, yoga pavilion, boutique, and state-of-the-art business suite. Around-the-clock butler and concierge service caters to our guests’ every need.

Quintessence opened on January 1, 2018 and was the first Anguilla luxury property to open after the Caribbean was ravaged by Hurricane Irma last September. Anguilla has now recovered, and the Q Hotel is the island’s preeminent luxury property.

The Q Hotel Anguilla embodies timeless luxury, making the world a better place through culinary excellence and unrivaled hospitality. Ten years in the making, every element of the hotel was created by artisans with museum-like quality…from the classic Versailles floor pattern to the vaulted cedar ceilings. The extensive Haitian art collection, carefully and meticulously procured for decades by owner Geoffrey Fieger, fills every room—mixing spacious comfort with beautiful lush tropical surroundings inside and out.

On the grounds, a tennis court, life-size chess board, yoga pavilion and outdoor massage pagoda offer a focus on health and wellness. Aidan Spa has a full menu of manicures, pedicures, facials and massages using the finest oils, sea salt scrubs and skin care products with the goal of pampering the body, relaxing the mind and soothing the spirit.

Geoffrey Fieger is a nationally known trial lawyer from Detroit, Michigan. He was inspired to build Quintessence by the original Malliouhana Hotel, on Meads Bay, built and operated by the late Leon Roydon.

“Like Mr. Roydon and his Malliouhana, I too share a passion for perfection, collecting antiques, Haitian art, beautiful architecture and interior design,” Mr. Fieger says. “It took 10 years to perfect my vision. We are proud to offer Quintessence Hotel as an unparalleled destination for discerning guests who desire unrivaled luxury, privacy and personalized pampering. It is for these special guests that Quintessence was created.”

JULIANS — A Tropical French Bistro, is without equal in the Caribbean. Executive Chef Dominique Thevenet blends traditional French cuisine with fresh locally-sourced ingredients—Mr. Fieger calls it “island soul food”. Delight your taste buds with chilled gazpacho, mango lobster salad, coconut mahi-mahi or beef tenderloin bordelaise, to name a few. Chocolate pepper cake filled with raspberry sorbet is a local favorite for dessert.

Quintessence offers custom private dining options at the Chef’s Table, in the Polo Lounge or in The Q Cellar. Enjoy the island breeze and panoramic views from the Grand Gazebo, or for a more intimate outdoor dining experience, the Tropical Cedar House nestled in the mansion gardens is a great option.

The Wine Spectator award-winning wine cellar at Quintessence Hotel is unrivalled in the Caribbean, offering guests an astonishing selection that has taken a lifetime to collect. Mr. Fieger has spared no expense in creating The Q Cellar, which consists of two chambers located beneath our five-star restaurant JULIANS. Handcrafted in stone, brick, and cedar wine racks, the cellar is designed in a Tuscan style, with a barrel-vault ceiling. Over 1,600 bottles of wine are protected with state-of-the-art temperature and humidity controls.
