Not many luxury resorts have the distinction of spanning more than 300 acres of unspoiled sand and sea in the middle of paradise. This is one of the many ways in which Aurora Anguilla Resort & Golf Club is setting itself apart as the ultimate 5-star property in Anguilla. As a new luxury resort located on Rendezvous Bay, Aurora Anguilla only opened its doors in the Fall of 2021; but the property’s relaxing vibe, paired with VIP-style services and amenities, are already making waves in the realm of luxury tourism. Charnissa Richardson, Director of Catering & Private Events shares more about hosting the perfect destination wedding in Anguilla.
