Belmond opens the 2021/22 season of its Caribbean resorts

The new season of the two Belmond branded Caribbean resorts is full of news: Cap Juluca in Anguilla and La Samana in St. Martin in fact, they reopen their doors in view of the next winter season and the following spring-summer.

At Cap Juluca, it is particularly noteworthy the inauguration of a Peruvian restaurant, to which are added unprecedented experiences for guests and a new direct flight from Miami departing December 11 with American Airlines.

Uchu, which in the Quechuan language, the ethnic group originating from the Inca empire, means spice, notably features a menu of contemporary Peruvian cuisine that blends with the wealth from the Anguill seaa: shellfish, crustaceans and local fish, ceviche, crab cakes and quinoa poke are among the proposals for an elegantly informal lunch on the seafront while, at sunset, with its wooden furnishings surrounded by tropical flora and live DJ sets , the restaurant is transformed into a lounge by the pool. The new formula completes the gastronomic offer of Cap Juluca together with the Caribbean tradition of Pimms, the Italian one in collaboration with Cipriani at Cip’s by Cipriani and the informal Cap Shack on the beach

As far as experiences are concerned, there are two novelties this year: to pay homage to Anguilla’s passion for the sea, Belmond guests can join the third generation fisherman Shawn Romney and go, in a traditional yo-yo reel, in search of a yellow-tailed snapper, a blue runner or a parrotfish, then bring the fresh catch back to Uchu for a private ceviche lunch. On board a vintage sea blue Volkswagen van, you can then leave to discover the 33 beaches of the island. For lunch, a gourmet picnic will be set up by the sea while at sunset, guests can opt for a champagne toast and cruise back to Maundays Bay.

Unusual culinary experiences also in La Samanna, as well as a new wellness proposal. The historic cellar La Cave Wine Cellar of the structure, one of the largest private ones in the Caribbean with over 2,000 bottles, is the inspiration for the program La Cave Under The Stars: Unique dining experiences led by a stellar array of international chefs and sommeliers. Already known as a meeting place for local artists with their works on display throughout the property, La Samanna also now promotes an important themed residential stay program. Starting next December 15th, the French photographer Francois Castelain, who splits his time between Paris and St Martin, will notably exhibit portraits of the island’s residents captured through his own lens. Guests also have free portrait photography courses with Castelain. L’Energetic Re-Mastery finally, it is the latest addition to Samanna Spa, designed to holistically support general health. Edited by Christine Caruso, with twenty years of research in energy medicine, each course is tailored to the individual guest.
