The Elite Traveler: Vacation in the Caribbean

I normally like to write about multiple places/destinations to give everyone options.  This month I have decided to do things a little differently.  I am focusing on one particular place…the crème de la crème of the Caribbean – Ani Villas.

Located on the beautiful island of Anguilla, Ani Villas boasts 2 fully serviced villas complete with a butler, servers, and a chef.  In order to make us all feel a little safer at night, Ani Villas even provides a nightly security guard.  Each Villa is comprised of 5 bedrooms including 2 grand masters, 1 junior master, and 2 twin rooms.  All bedrooms have their own en-suite bath.  Each villa also has its own pool, hot tub, kitchens, indoor and outdoor dining areas, lounges, and decks.  A tennis court and fully equipped gym is also available to guests on property.

While all of these amenities may seem a bit overwhelming, no need to worry!  The staff at Ani Villas is trained to make your stay the trip of a lifetime.  You can do as little or as much as you want to do thanks to the Estate Manager.  The Estate Manager will plan all of your services and activities if you wish them to do so.  In a situation like this, you may wonder if you will get any privacy with all of the staff catering to your every need.  Lucky for you, the staff at Ani Villas is very discreet.  Their job is to make you feel like you are in the privacy of your own home.  The staff thinks of everything.  They will prepare tents, umbrellas, food, drinks, and snorkeling equipment if you wish to go to the beach.  Don’t feel like packing it back up?  Of course you don’t!  You’re on vacation!  The staff not only prepares these things, but takes care of all the packing up and cleaning as well.  This is just an example of the numerous things they can do.  The list could go on for days – candlelit dinners, scheduling in-house spa services, setting up boat service to other islands, organizing events (ex. birthday party, anniversary dinner), etc etc.  The possibilities are endless!  To note, your rates for stay will be inclusive of all breakfasts, dinner cheffing service and beverages consumed in the home.

I know some of you take your family and/or friends on trips with you.  The perfect thing about Ani Villas is that you can rent the estate as a whole (meaning both villas and the entire property), or you can rent the villas individually.  If you would like to do an individual villa, but don’t need all 5 bedrooms there is an option for that too.  Ani Villas allows guests to rent a villa out per bedroom.  For example, if you only need 2 bedrooms for a one week stay the price is based on a per night per bedroom charge.  This is a great option so that you are not paying for extra bedrooms that you don’t really need, while still allowing you to get the full villa experience.

I can already hear the next question.  Can I get it for Christmas?  Ladies, ladies, ladies….if I received a dollar for every person that wanted to rent a villa for Christmas and didn’t inquire until September/October my husband could quit playing baseball!  Hehe – JK!  If you want a villa like this over any holiday, you need to call almost a year or more in advance.  I would lean toward more if you want to be on the safe side.  Please note that during the busy season (winter) and almost every holiday, any villa rental typically requires a full week rental.  Some require a 2 week rental.

This leads me to my next question.  Who is booking this place for any of the 2014 holidays?!?!  Seriously though, first come first serve. 🙂

Ani Villas truly offers a one of a kind experience.  It’s everything that everyone wants, but not something that everyone can have.  Villas like this book extremely quick so it is important to get on top of things if you are truly interested in this one-of-a -kind experience.  Another thing that I would like to point out about the island of Anguilla is the amazing location.  In order to get to the island of Anguilla, you would fly into St. Marteen.  From St. Marteen, Ani Villas would arrange for you to be picked up by boat and taken to the island which is a short 20-30 minute boat ride away.  What makes this experience even more worthwhile is that Anguilla is also located close to the beautiful island of St. Barts.  I like to call this a 3-in-1 experience.  You could easily take a boat to St. Marteen and St. Barts for a day trip and get to experience all 3 of the beautiful islands.  Where to find a boat?  The staff at Ani Villas has it covered.

I am including the link to the Ani Villas website below.  WOW is really the only word to describe these villas.  The views, furnishings, and amenities offered are truly magnificent.  On top of that, I have established a relationship with the property manager at Ani Villas.  By doing this, it allows me to have direct communication in order to make sure your stay is everything you want and more.  A lot of you ask me where I would go on my personal vacation if given the choice to go anywhere.  My answer is simple – Ani Villas is the place to be!
