Quintessence Hotel opens on Anguilla


A year after devastating Hurricane Irma nearly destroyed Anguilla, the island is set to open for the season, bigger and better than ever. The Caribbean’s newest Relais & Châteaux property, the ultra-luxury boutique hotel—QUINTESSENCE, is set to open on November 5, 2018.

Quintessence features its award-winning restaurant, JULIANS—A Tropical French Bistro, along with pools, spa, tennis, and over a mile of unspoiled white sand beach on Long Bay. Around-the-clock butler and concierge service caters to our guests’ every need. AIDAN SPA has a full menu of manicures, pedicures, facials and massages with the goal of pampering the body, relaxing the mind and soothing the spirit.

Julians has been awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2018, with a collection of our 1,600 bottles, all stored in the hotels state-of-the-art wine cellars. Caribbean French cooking by Executive Chef Dominique Thevenet, combined with locally sourced ingredients create an island-infused luxury dining experience.

Q Hotel Anguilla displays luxury and elegance with nine stunning suites, all accommodations with French châteaux comfort. Ten years to build, owner and famed trial lawyer Geoffrey Fieger, spared nothing to create a timeless, world-class tropical mansion. From the Versailles floor pattern, to the vaulted cedar wood ceilings, to the largest art collection in the Caribbean, every spacious room is filled with comfort and elegance to create an extraordinary lush tropical experience, inside and out.

In the suites at Quintessence you will find Hästens Beds—handcrafted all-natural exquisite Swedish mattresses with the finest of linens, along with premium marble bathrooms, and amenities by Gilchrist & Soames.
