Available beginning in August for Anguilla’s carnival-like Summer Festival, anyone looking for something a little different might find Anguilla’s Sheriva Luxury Villas & Suites “Summer Festival Frenzy Package” to be a perfect fit. The special package allows guests to enjoy genuine Anguillan hospitality, a traditional sailing adventure, multi-course dinner of regional cuisine, locally-inspired spa treatments, and more while staying in one of the resort’s 8-bedroom villas.  It also includes a private transfer to Anguilla from St. Maarten airport, welcome champagne bar, pre-arrival provisioning, personalized butler services including beach butler on the powder sand at Maundays Bay.

But everyone agrees the highlight of the Summer Festival Frenzy Package is sailing on a handcrafted Carriacou Sloop – the last surviving vessel of its kind. The sailing experience begins with welcome mimosas followed by a short introduction and history on the traditions of sailing. Then, it’s off to watch the famous Anguilla boat races before stopping at Sandy Island, an off-island cay, for post-race festivities and snorkeling. 

After a lunch of local lobster and crayfish, guests will enjoy a tasting of fine rums and cigars. Throughout the day, the group will enjoy premium spirits and fine champagnes while taking in the view of the crystal turquoise Caribbean Sea.
