ANGUILLA…WHERE GROUPS CAN MEET ON THE BEACH WITH A PROFESSIONAL FEEL D O S W E L L I N G R A M Anguilla is a warm and welcoming island destination tucked away in the northern Caribbean. Embraced by unri- valed white beaches and breathtaking turquoise seas, Anguilla is casual and easy, a unique blend of high style and low- key elegance, and the best of the good life set to a slow and casual island tempo. Anguilla is an experience that captivates visitors and creates friendships and mem- ories that last a lifetime. Submerged in decades of rich histo- ry and teeming with exciting local cul- ture, the family friendly island of Anguilla is proud to recommence its wildly popular premier Summer Prix Fixe & Beyond offerings. Crafted as Anguilla's answer to the "all–inclusive," the island-wide savings will offer visi- tors access to unique three-course menus at the island's finest restau- rants, as well as incomparable savings at select resorts, hotels and villas. A relaxed state of mind often provides room for innovative solutions. If you are looking for a meeting space where your team can work hard, rejuvenate and think clearly, look no further than Anguilla. This beautiful destination can provide you and your business team with an elite environment that is equal parts business and pleasure. Spacious luxury villas, ded- icated meeting spaces, an 18-hole cham- pionship golf course, state-of-the-art audio visual equipment, business support services, private chefs, catering and a place to relax at the end of your sessions; Anguilla is perfect for small high-level board and strategic meetings, high-end groups and top tier incentive programs. Anguilla's venues can accommodate from 20-100 persons in a variety of con- figurations. Hotels and resorts offer meeting services and provide concierge assistance. The Anguillan population is largely of African descent, their roots dating back to the mid-1600s when distant ancestors were brought over by British colonists to work on the plantations there. Today, there is little evidence of Anguilla's legacy of slavery and plantation living. The Heritage Collection Museum houses artifacts that showcase both the harsh conditions and the ingenious and inventive ways in which the people of Anguilla coped and created tools for sur- vival by engendering a unique way of life that they called "the jollification". The Valley is the home of government and commerce, the Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport, and the Anguilla Tourist Board. Here you will also find the island's only surviving plantation house, the beautifully restored Wallblake House, built in 1785, offering a glimpse into Anguilla's colonial heritage. The Wallblake House is situated on the Western edge of The Valley next to Anguilla's Catholic Church. Located across from The Old Cotton Gin, this part of the capital houses some of Anguilla's more colorful and interesting architecture. What is left is a culture of independence, pride and resilience born out of the love, loyalty and conviction of a people deter- mined to survive with little help from the outside. Spectacularly sited on some of Anguilla's best beaches, Anguilla's 4- and 5-star properties offer style and seclusion at the highest level. With superb spa facilities, gourmet and casual dining ven- ues — on site and nearby — and enough surprise and delight in their design and ambiance to reward the most discriminat- ing guest, you'll find world-class luxury in a world-class luxury destination.˝ A valid passport (with at least six months before expiration) and return or onward tickets are required for all visitors to Anguilla. Green card holders must have a valid green card and valid passport from their country of origin. Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport is easily accessible by air, through the main gateways Puerto Rico, St. Maarten/- Martin, Antigua and St. Kitts. WHO YOU GONNA CALL?
