Tantalizing getaways for the New Year

CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa

Escape the winter chill with the one you love by spending Valentine’s weekend at CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa in Anguilla. This legendary resort closed in September 2017 after sustaining significant damage from Hurricane Irma. It is now reopened with fully restored architecture, completely redesigned interiors, and a fresh, modernized look throughout. The redesign also added a 5,000-square-foot event space with Swarovski lighting, a splash pad for kids of all ages, a new spa concept, and revamped menus at its spectacular world-class restaurants. The CuisinArt Golf Club is back to its pre-storm splendor, with special incentivized rates from $1,095 per night including romantic meals, champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, and a couple’s spa treatment.  |  cuisinartresort.com
