We speak with Chrislyn Hughes who tells us more about this breathtaking property. Château Genesis is situated in Anguilla’s West End, and the villa is the ultimate way to explore the tranquil island, which is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean. The island can be found lying east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and to the north of Saint Martin. The territory is made up of the main island of Anguilla, which is approximately 16 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point, and numerous other small islands and cays, on which there is no permanent population. Equipped with white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, rolling hills and a host of activities to partake in, the island has something for everyone to enjoy. After a long day participating in any of the recreational activities the island has to offer, from diving, snorkelling, hiking, fishing, to exploring any of the 33 beaches that can be found on Anguilla, return home to the comforts of the Château and unwind. Guests can enjoy all the amenities the Château has to offer, with luxurious elements such as personalised service, a private gym, and even a chef and butler available on request. With all this of variety available to you, and magnificent views in every direction, the property provides the perfect setting for either a romantic getaway or a holiday with a group of family or friends. The Château captures the essence of Caribbean design and elegance with a refreshing, modern twist, featuring spacious bedrooms including a master suite and an outdoor shower, complete with superb views of the neighbouring Saint Martin Island. All rooms come with air conditioning and ceiling fans, allowing you to relax and stay cool at mealtimes or evenings spent inside. The Château also proudly sports a fully equipped, state-of-the-art kitchen, cozy living and dining areas, powder room, and open patios to nicely complete the main floor. On the basement level, you can expect to find a six-person cinema room complementing the private gym, providing you several activities to do in the evening or any free time, whether alone or with loved ones. The team at Château Genesis are equipped with more than 20 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, and although only a small team, they pride themselves on delivering the best service and ensuring quality standards are reached for all guests. Each guest will be welcomed to the property by the villa attendant, before being gifted cold towels and a refreshing drink to kick-off an unforgettable vacation experience in the best way. During your stay, villa attendants, groundskeepers, and maintenance will all be on hand to deal with any issues that may arise, Chrislyn describes the staff as being, “the backbone of the villa”, taking pride in their jobs, and being honest, respectable and hardworking. The high standards of the villa are thus reflected in the staff, making sure every element of your holiday is as enjoyable as possible. Although many things have changed in the industry, Chrislyn believes the expectations of guests have stayed the same, they require the same high level of service and attentive staff, and the team at Château Genesis more than live up to this.
