If 33 white sand beaches is not enough to entice travelers to take a Caribbean getaway to Anguilla, its latest hotel enhancements and savings will have your clients immediately booking flights.

Anguilla offers travelers a variety of land and sea activities—from parasailing tours and fishing charters (your client can fish for Wahoo, marlin, swordfish, and yellow and black fin tuna) to shopping and bird watching tours.

That white sand? Well, it’s accessible from five-star Cap Juluca,which has enhanced its 67 guestrooms set in 15 villas featuring a new design with new linens, furniture and abstract art. The signature cocktail lounge, Maundays Bar, and Blue, the beachfront bistro, have also been redesigned. Other additions at the hotel include the new waterfront bar, Spice Lounge, and new watersports and recreational activities for guests.

The Stay In Luxury package features accommodations in an Oceanfront Luxury room with daily continental breakfast. Rates start at $495 per night. For more information, visit capjuluca.com.

Boutique hotel Shoal Bay Villas also expanded adding 10 new deluxe rooms, a fitness center and a spa treatment room to the property. At the spa facility, guests can choose a range of treatments performed by a Balinese therapist.

The villas are set on a 2-mile beach and feature fully equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs and complimentary WiFi. From May 1 through Nov. 15, guests can take advantage of the summer special packages with 7-night stays for the price of five nights (with up to two kids free).
