Justin Bieber and Meryl Streep Are Fans of This Low-key Caribbean Island — but Its Newest Villas Will Make Anyone Feel Like a Celebrity
When you think of celebrity travel, paparazzi-heavy spots like St. Bart's or the south of France may come to mind, but the Caribbean island of Anguilla is quickly becoming the choice for stars looking for low-key luxury.
The likes of LeBron James, Justin Bieber, and Meryl Streep have been seen taking in all that the tropical spot has to offer, but its celeb-worthy accommodations are available to everyone, specifically at the brand new Kandara Villa.
Kandara offers everything a relaxation-seeking star — or everyday person — would want in a beach vacation, including retractable glass doors that invite the dream-worthy sea breeze into every room. With its layout, you’re never more than a glance away from the endless ocean views and can vacation like Streep herself as the digs are complete with a staff including a villa manager, butler service, 24/7 concierge, and daily housekeeping.
The villa boasts six suites, a number of large balconies, a roof deck, and can host up to 12 guests.
With prices ranging from $3,900 to $11,000 a night, this villa is the entertainer's dream with a large kitchen and both indoor and outdoor dining space, making it ideal for a group of friends or a family looking for a home away from home. Complete with an infinity pool, hot tub, and secluded beach cove access, you will have a hard time coming up with excuses to leave Kandara.
But if cabin fever ever ensues, some of the best dining options at the Four Seasons and Belmond Cap Juluca hotels are just a short ride away.
Adventure-seekers can enjoy the sights of the Anguilla by chartering a boat through Gotcha Garfield Sea Tours. Known for his rum punch, the boat's captain, Garfield Richardson, knows the waters like the back of his hand and offers different types of cruises and boats to fit every party. While you can create your own itinerary, don’t miss Little Bay, a protected intimate cove where the NBA icon recently visited and did his famed rock jump.
Be sure to grab lunch on Sandy Island, an off-shore cay with a panoramic view of Road Bay.
Besides the water, there’s no better way to see the island than driving around in a Moke, a British open air vehicle, for ultimate sightseeing. They're available to be rented by calling Moke AXA and will be delivered right to your door.
And when it's time to chill out with a cocktail and your feet in the sand, cruise over to Elvis’ Beach Bar for a fun night of music and laid-back island vibes. Bankie Banx’s Dune Preserve is another lively spot for great tunes and blue skies.
