Cap Juluca On the Island of Anguilla
by Lynne Leonard
The resort of Cap Juluca is located on the island of Anquilla, also considered the friendliest island in the Caribbean. Anquilla is an intimate island, with a population of roughly 15,000 and only 35 square miles. It is the north most Leeward Island in the eastern Caribbean, situated between The British Virgin Islands and Saint Maarten. Anguilla’s Clayton J. Lloyd Airport is accessible through Puerto Rico, St. Maarten/Martin, Antigua and St. Kitts or you can fly into St. Maarten and take a short 30 minute sea shuttle to your destination. Once you have cleared customs and immigration a shuttle will be available to take you to the resort.
Take in the white sands and azure waters of Maundays Bay that surround Cap Juluca and blend that with the clean crisp lines and arches of the Greco-Moorish architecture you may feel as though you have been transported to the Greek Isles. Cap Juluca is an upscale intimate resort with 15 villas housing a total of 69 guestrooms each with a private covered terrace and a breathtaking oceanfront view of the bay. Accommodations range from a Superior Oceanfront to a Two-Bedroom Oceanfront Villa with private pool. Each room is accessorized with 40” LCD flat panel TV, CD/DVD player, complimentary wireless internet, Frette linens, BVLGARI bath amenities and a plethora of other luxury details.
Here’s The Scoop
Hidden gems are always worth the time and travel and Cap Juluca is one of those hidden gems. I have never felt so pampered! This was truly a five-star experience with a staff that exceeded my expectations. There are times when all you want to do is escape, and this is the place that will allow you to put it all behind you and relax. I admit I am a beach lover so I have experienced many beaches in my travels and it is easy to understand why these white sand beaches have been touted as some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. If lounging on the beach every day is not your thing and you want to spend a day exploring, there is plenty of great sightseeing on the island or arrange a day trip to Saint Maarten. The resort has a private charter boat that you can reserve for many different excursions from fishing to shopping to island hopping.
