Belmond unveils flagship Caribbean resort following major redesign

Belmond has unveiled its newly-designed flagship Caribbean resort via a short film starring British actress Naomie Harris.

Belmond Cap Juluca in Anguilla reopened last November following a top-to-bottom renovation reimagining everything from the suites to the swimming pool.

In a bid to capture the resort’s ethos of ‘barefoot luxury’, the James Bond star can be seen strolling along the white-sand private beach, enjoying the sea view infinity pool and making use of the hotel's brand-new Arawak Spa.

“For me, Belmond Cap Juluca embraces the soul of the Caribbean; the place where I feel most at home,” Naomie said in a statement.

“It is magical to be able to just take a moment to breathe in and do nothing, and simply enjoy the joy of being surrounded by beauty and nature.”

Located in a secluded cove of Maundays Bay, the property features 108 newly-designed rooms and suites - including three and five-bedroom private villas – two restaurants, a cocktail lounge and a bar. 

The resort was designed by Texas-based interior design firm Rottet Studio with the aim of complementing the island’s natural beauty and signature Greco-Moorish architecture.

It comes hot on the heels of the reopening of neighbouring Caribbean resort Belmond La Samanna in Saint Martin, bolstering the hotel giant’s presence in the region.

“We are delighted to work with the beautiful Naomie Harris on this film to capture the essence of ‘barefoot luxury’ that we have created at Belmond Cap Juluca, a true authentic escape. Naomie brings this genuine feeling to the narrative that inspires you to walk in her footsteps,” explained Belmond’s senior vice president of brand and marketing, Arnaud Champenois.

“With the opening of our new flagship property on Anguilla and sister hotel, Belmond La Samanna on Saint Martin, with its retro-chic pastel refresh celebrating contemporary nostalgia, we have redefined luxury Caribbean escapism.”
