Anguilla with Prabal

As part of our partnership with American Express for their #AmexInspires initiative, Prabal recently travelled to Anguilla with a group of friends to find his inspiration for coming collections.

He found Anguilla to be one of the most beautiful Caribbean islands he had visited, the vibrant colors and tropical landscapes resonating enormously. We have logged the four favorite moments of his stay as a travel reference for those of you who may find yourselves there in the near future..

To Stay - Without a doubt the Viceroy Anguilla. One of the American Express Travel Insider properties, our villa at the Viceroy was spectacular. I had heard so much about staying here and totally lived up to expectations.

To Eat - Veya. Nestled in a luscious tropical garden amidst the trees on top of Sandy Ground Hill, with candlelit stairways and a canopied veranda, the ambience was breathtaking. I had the tamarind glazed roast chicken, Christophene gratin, tropical fruit chutney, followed by warm chocolate cake with chili, caramelized bananas and roasted banana ice cream.

To Visit - Sandy Island. A tiny off shore cay accessible by fishing boat. Populated by charming brightly colored huts, with one beach restaurant serving freshly grilled fish, and rum punches.

To Relax - The Spa at the Viceroy Anguilla. It has everything, amazing massages and a spectacular infinity pool from which you can watch the sun set.
