More About Cap Juluca
Insulated from the outside world, yet only minutes by air or boat from St. Maarten, Cap Juluca resort is a private self-contained enclave on Anguilla in the British West Indies, situated along two miles of the most pristine white sand beaches in the Caribbean. Offering a spectacular private getaway, Cap Juluca's spacious Moorish villas with 97 luxurious suites and bedrooms, five-star restaurants, exotic landscaped tropical gardens, and friendly and gracious service professionals provide an unparalleled level of luxury.
During season, the resort's guest list reads like a who's who of the social registry, but with a staff to guest room ratio of four to one, the intuitive service is unparalleled. Its ambiance is intentionally romantic, with surreal vistas during the day, and after a breathtaking sunset, dramatic nightscapes of the twinkling lights of St. Maarten and miles of shimmering water shattering the moon's reflection into a thousand pieces. With a ban on cruise ships, casinos and high-rise buildings, guests escape to the sun kissed sanctuary of Maundays Bay, offering anonymity for the affluent and known as a favorite hideaway for celebrities.
More About Temenos Golf Course
In planning the course, significant environmental efforts were undertaken to preserve and to enhance the island's natural habitats. Most significant was the renewal of Merrywing Salt Pond, an island landmark. Featured predominantly in the course, the pond's water has been reinvigorated, giving rebirth to its natural organisms. New flushing channels permit sea water to flow out of the pond during high tide.
Temenos Golf Course offers a golfing experience where sand, wind and water blend seamlessly with Anguilla's natural environment to present a golfer's paradise. Some of its signature holes include:
-- Players being greeted by a spectacular vista of St. Maarten and the Caribbean Sea at the tee box of the 390-yard starting hole. The fairway descends over 40-feet to a narrow, two-tiered green sitting precariously on the edge of a saltwater lagoon. This is the hole that Robb Report called, "The Caribbean's answer to the 18th at Pebble Beach."
-- Large sand dunes on the left and a saltwater pond on the right framing the perilous drive on the 440-yard 16th hole that plays dead into the trade winds and ends with an elevated green surrounded by water and protected by deep bunkers.
-- The drive for the finishing hole carrying the edge of the mangrove thicket in a vast stretch of saltmarsh that winds through eight of the course holes. The narrowing fairway ascends forty feet through rugged terrain to a narrow green carved out of the native shrub.
