officially opens today. A sister property to CuisinArt Golf Resort &
Spa, The Reef features 80 state-of-the-art accommodations, a dramatic
lobby entry and bar with sweeping ocean views, fitness center, boutique,
two restaurants, and a spectacular pool.


“We are delighted to celebrate the launch of The Reef and welcome guests

guests with the best that both properties have to offer.”

Accommodations and Lobby

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of The World, The Reef features
80 accommodations that include 25 Golfview Junior Suites and 25 Seaview
Junior Suites in the main building. Four additional beachfront buildings
house 30 accommodations ranging from Beachfront Junior Suites to Corner
Beachfront Junior Suites, Superior Beachfront Junior Suites and Deluxe
Beachfront Junior Suites. The hotel’s open-air lobby affords a stunning
view of the Caribbean Sea and is designed to evoke a yacht on land.
Design accents including Italian ceramic tile floors, limestone walling
fabricated in Bali, Royal Botania furniture and a dramatic spiral
staircase leading to the restaurants and pool reveal a chic
juxtaposition of relaxed Caribbean luxury and urban flair within moments
of stepping foot on property.

Food & Beverage

The Reef offers a true gastronomic journey, using a farm-to-table
approach that includes locally-sourced fish such as snapper, grouper and
lobster, and fresh produce from CuisinArt’s on-site Hydroponic Farm, in
addition to some of the most coveted global ingredients handpicked by
Executive Chef Jasper Schneider. The Yacht Club, serving breakfast and
dinner, offers a menu of sophisticated fare and extensive raw bar
selections, with a brilliantly nautical design, including porthole
inspired doors, sails draping down from the ceiling, and sailing
photography that adorn the walls. The Reef is also home to Breezes, a
dazzling beachfront lunch restaurant and bar ideal for those craving a
relaxed Caribbean experience. The restaurant’s Argentinian-style grill
and wood fire allow for roasted fish and vegetables to be served
directly from the oven. A poolside menu and light bites in the lobby
lounge will be served. Guests at The Reef can also easily enjoy the
exceptional cuisine that CuisinArt has to offer, including four
restaurants, an intimate Chef’s Table experience that is unmatched in
the Caribbean, cooking lessons and more, along with signing privileges
at all of CuisinArt’s dining venues and complimentary transportation
provided throughout the estate.

Wellness Offerings

At the core of The Reef’s on-property programming is a focus on
wellness, encompassing everything from cutting-edge spa treatments and a
bevy of nutrient-dense juices fresh from the Hydroponic Farm, to diverse
fitness classes including yoga with meditation and aqua-cycling class.
Guests at The Reef will have the opportunity to be pampered poolside
through an array of “Spa to You” services. At CuisinArt’s award-winning,
27,000 square foot Venus Spa, guests can enjoy additional treatments as
well as a unique Farm-to-Spa Blend Bar activity to make their own body
scrubs and bath salts using dried herbs such as lavender and rosemary
straight from the Hydroponic Garden.

Activities & Recreation

The resort’s swimming pool overlooking Merrywing Bay beach will play
host to the island’s first aqua-cycling class, and a resident DJ will be
stationed poolside from 3:00-6:00 PM, setting an idyllic ambiance
through specially curated playlists for sunbathers and swimmers alike.
The Reef has also partnered with Anguilla’s distinguished sea adventure
company, Anguilla Watersports, to offer guests a multitude of
sea-adventure activities that include glass-bottom kayaking, snorkeling,
paddle boarding, and a water trampoline. Guests of The Reef will also
receive special pricing to experience Anguilla Watersports’
family-friendly Aqua Park at Cove Bay, the largest inflatable water park
of its kind in the Caribbean, and kite surfing lessons.

printed with hip, on-trend sayings including “Beach Hair Don’t Care” and
more; Pete Huntington shirts hand crafted from Bali and Onias
