Nestled in the northeastern Caribbean, the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla possesses the easy vibe of the islands along with a fascinating blend of South American Amerindian, Arawak, French and British cultures. Its ancient inhabitants, the Amerindians, believed the Big Springs caves at Island Harbour and The Fountain caves at Shoal Bay were the original sites of the universe's creation. Petroglyphs and artifacts have recently been discovered and preserved in two of Anguilla's historic national parks. While English holidays, such as the Queen's Birthday, Whit Monday and others, are celebrated, Anguillans also honor their multi-cultural heritage. Fortunately, the plantation system that was common throughout the islands never took hold here, partly due to the island's imperfect soil and unpredictable rainfall. Although the fierce Carib tribe once inhabited the island, Anguilla today boasts a friendly, peaceful environment, perfect for an idyllic Caribbean holiday in the sun.
Nestled atop a panoramic bluff and gazing down upon the azure and gleaming white sands of Meads Bay and Turtle Cove beaches, the Malliouhana, an Auberge Resort celebrates the luxury, majesty and tranquility of Anguilla.
