The on-site La Cave Wine Cellar is the largest private wine cellar in the Caribbean and guests can take advantage of wine pairing experiences curated by the Head Chef.

Meanwhile the resort’s new look Beach Bar “is a glamorous nightspot by the water’s edge for champagne or a cosmopolitan cocktail as the sun goes down.”

There’s also Baie Longue beach and water sports and excursions including water-skiing, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and scuba diving off nearby reefs.

Sister property Belmond Cap Juluca on Anguilla opens Nov. 17.
