As the recent announcement copied below relating to Anguilla’s acceptance as part of the Virtuoso family reconfirms, the island is poised for a substantial increase (perhaps a “boom”) in tourism arrivals / villa rentals / real estate sales / etc., over the next few years–as such please let me know how I might be able to assist…a pleasure to do so.ANGUILLA TOURIST BOARD ACCEPTED INTO GLOBAL LUXURY TRAVEL GROUP VIRTUOSO®
The Anguilla Tourist Board has been accepted into Virtuoso®’s exclusive portfolio of luxury travel partners, comprised of more than 2,000 preferred suppliers in 100 countries. Inclusion in Virtuoso will open up new sales and marketing opportunities to the network’s luxury travel advisors and their highly desirable clientele.

Anguilla enjoys a unique position in the luxury travel space. The island is a favorite of corporate executives, celebrities and high-net-worth travelers attracted by her size and location — it is small and intimate and lies a bit off the beaten path — and her truly spectacular beaches. A stunning collection of resorts and villas that offer personalized attention and understated elegance, as well as an exceptional culinary scene with over 100 local and international eateries, add to the island’s allure. Above all, the authentic experiences, memorable encounters and genuine hospitality extended to Anguilla’s guests are the reasons why the island enjoys one of the highest repeat visitor rates in the region.

FROM WONDERFUL TO (KINDA) WOEFUL WITHIN A WEEK
Since writing the above, Anguilla has lost its coveted “covid free” status as a cluster of covid cases have been identified, primarily in the South Hill / Blowing Point areas. The Government has adopted a focused and forceful contact tracing and isolation approach to minimize or negate community spread with it remaining the intention to open Anguilla on July 1st without quarantine requirements or mask mandates for guests who are fully vaccinated at least 21 days prior (i.e. by June 7th for July 1st entry)–as such wonderful should return promptly (hopefully).
