After ten years building Anguilla’s first ultra-luxury boutique hotel, Owner Geoffrey Fieger announced that Quintessence Hotel – A Tropical Grand Mansion will be first to open on Anguilla since Hurricane Irma.
The grand opening of the hotel is set for January 1st, while the restaurant, Julians, is already welcoming its first guests.
Overlooking the white sand beaches of Long Bay, Quintessence offers an experience unparalleled throughout the Caribbean, with nine lavish suites and villas, a five-star restaurant, spa, bars, an infinity pool, fitness centre, yoga pavilion, boutique, and state-of-the-art business suite.
Around-the-clock butler and concierge service caters to a guests’ every need.
“My wife, Keenie, and I have lived on Anguilla for more than 30 years, and we have built The Q to make guests feel as if they are being hosted in our grand tropical home,” Fieger said.
“We are eager to show visitors that Anguilla is as strong and beautiful as ever.”
The Q Hotel was designed to exacting standards, with handcrafted fixtures and custom artwork throughout, including a priceless collection of Haitian paintings and sculpture collected over decades by Fieger.
On the grounds, a tennis court, life-size chess board, yoga pavilion and outdoor massage pagoda are tucked into the lush foliage, offering a focus on health and wellness, including a strict non-smoking policy throughout.
Aidan Spa has a full menu of manicures, pedicures, facials and massage using the finest skin care products, while Gilchrist & Soames amenities are offered in-room.
Julians, a tropical French bistro, headed by executive chef Dominique Thevenet, offers a menu that blends locally-sourced tropical dishes with traditional French cuisine into a style Fieger calls “island soul food”.
A full complement of hand-selected liquor and cocktails, along with the Caribbean’s finest wine cellar, complement the menu.
For discerning travellers, The Q Hotel features an en-suite business villa that accommodates up to nine people, equipped with video conference capabilities, and free Wi-Fi throughout the property and on the beach.
