Malliouhana Hotel & Spa

P.O. Box 173
Meads Bay, Anguilla
British West Indies


Following our short one-hour flight from San Juan to Anguilla, B.W.I., Malliouhana’s guest service director greeted us and made arrangements for our ten-minute cab ride to their property.

Malliouhana is located on the Northwestern coastline on a twenty-five acre bluff overlooking two spectacular beaches. The lush landscape gardens and two mile white sand beach and azure blue water of Meads Bay painted a very romantic backdrop for this extraordinary environment.

Before the creation of the Malliouhana, a British industrialist and well-traveled bon vivant Leon Roydon and his late wife, Lyane, had created their dream of building a Caribbean resort with the standards of that which they were accustomed to while they traveled in Europe. Like many others, the Roydons fell in love with Anguilla.

Since the opening in 1982, this resort has won rave reviews including top awards from Conde’ Naste and Wine Spectator, for its extraordinary interiors, style, refinement, gourmet cuisine, and attention to detail.

Malliouhana Malliouhana clearly understands the needs of its discerning guests. They offer a staff-to-guest ratio of more than two to one, which affords a high level of service. The warmth of the Anguillan staff and the meticulous care of Leon Roydon and his son Nigel creates a gracious atmosphere. Leon who welcomed us to the Malliouhana arranged for a tour of their new eight-month-old spa.

This 15,000-square-foot ocean front spa offers therapeutic and specialty massages, body treatments, skin care, hair care, and a fully equipped fitness center. This luxurious spa welcomes all island visitors and local residents. The spa menu is very extensive and many of the body treatments used include the indigenous flowers and plants on the island. We scheduled our appointments and chose the “couples suite” so that we could allow our readers to learn about a very unique characteristic of this gorgeous facility. Our treatments were scheduled to include a lunch half-way thru our four hour stay in the couples’s suite.

Next, we were off to enjoy the delicious cuisine at “Le Bistro” restaurant located poolside next to Meads Bay beach located on the beach. We found the menu and quality of the food excellent.

This daytime restaurant serves lunch, snacks and afternoon tea and is open to all hotel guests and island visitors. A wonderful variety of menu items will help curb the appetite after bobbing in the surf at Meads Bay.

Fabulous Pool Incredible architecture and style
After a wonderful lunch it was time to enjoy our first treatment here at their new spa. The selection for massage was quite extensive. This included the traditional therapeutic style that could be tailored to meet your individual needs for deep tissue, or sports.
Spa View to poolside. Very romantic dining.
Dinner offered a magical feel as you were able to enjoy the “open air” unrestricted view of the sunset over the ocean. The dining experience at Malliouhana is recognized as being one of the finest in the Caribbean for its gourmet cuisine, elegant atmosphere and award-winning wine list.

Hotel guests and island visitors delight in the tantalizing cuisine of the French menu infused with Caribbean flavour while gazing out over a star-filled sky in the open air Main House Restaurant or enjoying a tasty lunch in a casual poolside setting at the beach side cafe - Le Bistro overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Hotel guests can also choose an intimate feast for two from the privacy of their room under their covered outdoor terrace.

Breakfast was an equally wonderful treat at this outstanding outdoor location. The food as well as service was exceptional. After breakfast it was time to prepare for the special menu of services selected in their spa suite.

Malliouhana Spa Malliouhana Spa
The treatments that were tried were:

Stone Therapy - a deep comforting and balancing treatment that uses warm basalt stones in rhythmic gliding strokes to induce a contemplative state of relaxation. Cooling stones are applied at the end of the treatment to refresh both mind and body and to help tone skin and muscle tissues.

Anti-ageing Lift Defense Treatment - A precision treatment that targets the visible signs of ageing with an innovative scientific formula that reduces visible wrinkles, firms and lifts facial contours, reinforces skin’s resistance and prevents the appearance of new wrinkles. Application of a triple-action-firming mask is combined with precise, digital massage for optimum hydration and protection. Particular attention to the contour of the eyes promotes elasticity and cellular renewal for a visibly effective reduction of puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles.

Sea Surge and Soak - A calming bath that balances the nervous system, this blend is recommended to counter the ill effects of overexertion, nervous disorders and stress. Extracts from orange, valerian, cat mint and chamomile are added to produce a relaxing state of mind and body.

Malliouhana Spa French ‘Gommage’ Body Polish - An invigorating full body exfoliation that eliminates dead skin cells and prepares the skin to absorb active plant extracts and nourishing, protective emollients. The body ‘gommage’ is applied and gently massaged to remove dead skin then rinsed thoroughly with specialty showers for a smooth, luminous appearance. The treatment is completed with light effleurage using a hydrating lotion with oil extracts that regulate skin permeability for optimum protection. Half way through the treatments a healthy and very tasty lunch was presented along with champagne.

When all the treatments were completed it was time to go to the hair salon to renew the hair’s appearance from the treatments.

The salon is very intimate and you feel as if you feel quite catered to. The products used are top of the line!

Once again it was time to go to dinner, but this time the location selected was at the Cusinart Resort off premise. As you enter the restaurant you get the feel of a very lively atmosphere, and the cuisine is most definitely “Italian”. The wait staff was very friendly and the evening was most memorable.

We shall return to write a special feature in the future at this location since this is one of three top-notch locations on the island of Anguilla.

The salon is very intimate

The next morning we had our final breakfast at the restaurant overlooking Meads Bay and the water was summoning us!

This is by far the best location for snorkeling. With so much to see in the calm water, two hours went by so quickly! When can we return? We miss it already.

Thank you for joining us.

See you at the Spa!
