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.
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.
Cap Juluca has recently undergone a multi-million dollar renovation of the property, including reconstruction of the main lobby area and revitalization of the guestrooms and the four dining areas.
Cap Juluca is the perfect place for honeymooning couples to relax and enjoy each others company and make sure you include a private in-room couples massage. If you are looking for outdoor activities there is a Greg Norman, championship golf course nearby and on the resort other activities include Bocce, croquet, tennis, yoga and Pilates. Some of the complimentary water sports include windsurfing, wake boarding, sea kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing. If planning your wedding, arrangements can be made for a private sailing excursion through the Director of Activities, for your guests to enjoy a spectacular and memorable sunset.
Cap Juluca has a “Wedding Team” that is available to assist in planning the perfect “Destination Wedding” with four packages to choose from, the staff will provide everything you will need, including assistance with wedding officials, licenses and documentation, whether it is your first or a vow renewal.
