Hotel Spotlight: Malliouhana, Anguilla

Hotel Feature |


There is a fabulous new hotel on one of my favorite islands in the Caribbean, Anguilla! Malliouhana was just renovated in 2014, 30 years after it’s original opening. Their legacy now continues, more luxurious than ever before! The hotel is set on a hillside and boasts 3 beautiful beaches. Their decor is really chic, and has a kind of retro Palm Springs vibe. Anguilla is known for their insane beaches, and the Malliouhana is no exception! You can take a boat over to Sandy Island or Scilly Cay for a day for fresh fish and rum punch on a tiny private island. So cool!






“A true tropical oasis, Malliouhana is set on 25 acres of lush, landscaped gardens that merge with one and a half miles of pristine white-sand beaches to envelop your senses and bring to life the true majesty of Anguilla. Enjoy the absolute essence of your destination, discover the healing power of seeking pleasure, and discover a staff committed to delivering every service and amenity with an unrivaled sense of passion.”

Real Honeymoon: Christine and Arbi

Real Honeymoon |


Christine and Arbi had a wonderful time on their honeymoon in Venice and Florence with a last minute trop to Milan to see a European football match! They then travelled down to the Amalfi Coast and stayed at Casa Angelina in the town of Praiano. This was their first time in Italy and they loved it- so much so they are already planning to return soon! Read more about their experience below.


About Venice:
“Our hotel was absolutely beautiful and the workers we really nice and helpful. They gave us wonderful suggestions on restaurants and guided us to the places we wanted to visit. During our short stay there we deliberately got lost in the little streets while shopping, dined at amazing little restaurants, visited San Marco Square, and took a boat to the island of San Lazaro and Murano. Our last night there we decided to take a private taxi to the Hotel Danieli for dinner. It was perfect.”


About Florence:
“From Venice we took the train to Florence. We both enjoyed traveling with the train and going through all the cute little towns. The first class tickets were absolutely worth it! I didn’t think I would love any other city just as much as Venice but Florence was amazing. Our hotel, again was awesome. It was in a great location, center to a lot of great stores and restaurants. The staff was really nice and helpful also. The shopping we did here was pure damage but all worth it… Haha. I do wish I had more time here so next time I would stay a day or two longer although my husband was happy with the length of our stay.”


About Milan:
“The next day we took a train to Milan to go to the game. Our hotel was still pretty close to the Duomo and all the stores. This was definitely a plus since we wanted to walk around and soak in Milan as much as we could. The city was popping because of the fashion week so it was really exciting to be mixed up in that energy.”


“After Sienna, we went back to Florence and took a train to Naples. I can’t emphasize how much we enjoyed our train rides from city to city. Freccia Rossa was the best. When we arrived to our hotel the rain clouds had departed and we were left with this amazing view!! WOW. It was fantastic. For the next four days we went to Positano for lunch, Sorrento for dinner, visited Amalfi and Ravello with a scooter and Capri for the day! It was perfect.”
