Iconic Anguilla resort changes hands

Adventurous Journeys Capital Partners (AJ Capital Partners), Chicago, has acquired the Malliouhana Hotel & Spa in Anguilla and has retained Auberge Resorts to lead a renovation and repositioning of the resort.

The 55-room resort sits on a 20-acre (8-hectare) beachfront site overlooking Meads Bay and Turtle Bay. Amenities include two restaurants, a 15,000-sq-ft (1,394-sq-m) spa and extensive fitness facilities.

“Malliouhana has a storied history as one of the most exclusive destinations in the Caribbean,” said Ben Weprin, CEO of AJ Capital Partners. “The unique character and charm of the property will be celebrated and enhanced to provide a sophisticated and relaxed experience. The government of Anguilla and the Roydon family have been tremendously supportive in allowing us the opportunity to own and operate this distinctive property.”
