CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa

The Caribbean island of Anguilla has joined the list of top exotic golf holiday destinations. On 15 October CuisinArt Golf Resort and Spa, one of Anguilla’s leading hotels, opened a new 18 hole course, designed by Australian golf legend Greg Norman.

Norman, nicknamed the Great White Shark for his aggressive golf playing, has designed a stunning Oceanside 7063 yard, par 72 course offering spectacular views out to neighbouring St Maarten and the Caribbean Sea  that has cost $50 million to build. Experts say that the Greg Norman signature course will soon be recognised as one of the best in theCaribbeanregion and as a result CuisinArt is expecting a big boost in visitor numbers to the resort.

Guest staying at CuisinArt Golf Resort and Spa will of course benefit from this new facility right next door to the hotel and will enjoy significantly discounted green fees. Special golf packages, lessons and youth instruction are available on request and the beautiful Club House has an expansive terrace boasting sweeping sea views. For those needing to add to their golf equipment there is the CuisinArt Club Pro Shop and luxury locker rooms.

The CuisinArt Golf Club provides the ultimate golf experience in the Caribbean – a championship course with breath taking views and challenging, dramatic holes. Combined with the fabulous beach, spa, cuisine and spacious rooms and suites at the hotel, it is the perfect luxury resort choice on Anguilla with something for everyone.

CuisinArt sits on Anguilla’s finest beach at Rendezvous Bay where guests can enjoy the two blissful miles of crystal white sand and clear blue sea.  The resort’s gleaming white Mediterranean style design nestles perfectly in the beach’s intimate surroundings and guests can enjoy picture perfect views.  The top floor suites of the beachfront villas are the epitome of luxury living.

Golfers returning from a long day trying to master the new golf course (as well as other guests) can book themselves into the resort’s famous Venus spa, the largest spa facility in the Caribbean, which features multiple treatment and wet rooms, a thalasso pool, a hammam amongst its state of the art features plus an exciting range of invigorating treatments.

The resort also boasts the first on site hydroponic farm in the region, allowing guests to enjoy meals prepared with home grown organic produce – many of which are used in the Venus Spa treatments.  Guests can savour authentic Japanese cuisine in the newly built Tokyo Bay which is due to open its doors on 15th December – located on the rooftop of the Venus Spa. It will be the perfect location to soak up views of the hotel’s gardens, ocean and golf course.

  • The Temenos course is an unknown golfing gem..

    We had the honor of touring the Temenos course shortly before it opened. A good friend who is a scratch handicap came along for the tour. He was amazed and pronounced it a true PGA-level course, high praise from someone who has played all over the world.

    And the good news is that a second course, this one by Jack Nicklaus, will be underway soon, running along the sea, links-style, from Forrest Bay eastward. We ran into someone on the ferry who was there to plan the course.

    All in all, Anguilla is about to become a golfing mecca!

    This article is very misleading as this course was actually completed and opened in 2006. It was then called the Teminos Golf Club and was operated by Troon Golf in their customary professional fashion.

    Unfortunately, the course was part of a hotel and villa development whose construction was interrupted by the credit crunch of 2008 and the course was closed, before being reopened last year by another hotel on Anguilla.

    I played there a few times in 2006 and 2007 and am glad that it is open again – wide fairways but penal if you manage miss the short stuff!
