Carimar Beach Club “Stay in Place” Package / Long-Term Stays / COVID Precautions


A MESSAGE FROM CARIMAR BEACH CLUB


Carimar Beach Club’s “Stay in Place” Package and Long-Term Stays Now Extended Until April 30, 2021

Carimar Beach Club received the SAFE ENVIRONMENT AWARD and is certified for stays.

A few months ago, Anguilla announced their phase 2 opening to welcome visitors back to our
island within a safe environment – both for our guests but as well for the local population.

We at Carimar were able to welcome back our first repeat guests on October 18th, and since then we
have welcomed numerous guests back to Carimar – most of them long-time repeat guests, but
also some new guests who took advantage of our attractive stay-in-place packages and long-
term rates. We are glad to be busy, allowing our staff to earn a much-needed income.

In the last months, the Government approved various additional protocols to make the stay
during quarantine much more attractive (and safe), therefore, we decided to extend our special rates
until April 30th, 2021.

Depending on the length of stay, Carimar Beach Club is offering between 20% and up to 60%
discount on our regular rates from now until the end of April, helping to cover some of the
additional fees imposed due to Covid-19 and making an extended stay with us much more
attractive.

‘Stay in Place’ Package at Carimar Beach Club:

Visiting Anguilla in the coming weeks and months still requires a 10 to 14 days quarantine at
Carimar. This ‘stay in place’ time might not be your usual Anguilla vacation, however with
the newly approved protocols, your stay will still be fun, enjoyable, and a very special experience
– we promise!

As of today, the required quarantine is still needed regardless of any vaccine received.  As
Anguilla also is getting its vaccine program in place in the next weeks and months, this protocol may
change sometime this spring or early summer.

What can I do during my ‘Stay in Place’ time?

– You can spend as much time as you want enjoying Meads Bay, take a swim or snorkel – 
all within a designated area in front of Carimar.
– Since December 23rd, you can also walk between Carimar and Frangipani from 7 am to
6 pm, either just for a beach stroll, exercise or to enjoy a meal in one of the restaurants
along the beach within the Meads Bay Bubble (Blanchards, Beach Shack, and Straw Hat).
– There is a wide selection of restaurants available for dining out during quarantine. Those restaurants include Straw Hat, Blanchards, Beach Shack, Picante, Ember, Mangos, and many more. An updated list of restaurants participating with their bubble days is published weekly. A certified taxi will take you to the various restaurants, except for Blanchards, Beach Shack, and Leon’s, where we will escort you to.
– Nearly every restaurant on the island and caterers such as ‘Gerauds’ offer deliveries to
your apartment. You can enjoy a delicious meal in the privacy of your balcony or porch –
maybe while watching a ‘green flash’ sunset.
– Besides the restaurants, there is a wide variety of activities offered to ‘stay in place
guests’: Excursions to Scilly Cay, Sandy Island or Prickly Pear, a cruise on the ‘Tradition’ sailing ship,
Golf at Cuisinart, Scuba Diving, Fishing Trips, Yoga, Fitness, and Watersports. A list of
participating activities is updated regularly.
– Play tennis on our new synthetic ‘Agile Turf’ championship tennis courts, or you can use our courts as
well for exercise or Yoga classes.
– At Carimar, we now have kayaks and paddleboards available for our guests, which can
also be used during your ‘stay-in-place’ time. Complimentary snorkeling equipment can
be placed in your room prior to your arrival.
– If you like to work-out, we have various equipment (weights, yoga mats, resistance
bands, jump ropes, and more) available to use in your unit or on the tennis court – and
remember, you can now jog or walk along Meads Bay as well. After the quarantine period, guests may use our new fitness center by appointment.
– Carimar will stock your unit with all the groceries you might request prior to arrival. We
are also offering shopping, including bread and pastries from the Village Bakehouse for
you twice a week during your ‘stay in place’. Both services are offered to our guests
complimentary.
– We will also have a selection of selected restaurant-quality meats and seafood
specialties available to purchase for our guests.
– Carimar will also do your personal laundry complimentary once a week during your ‘stay
in place’ time.
– On request: Beach & Outdoor Games (e.g. Boccia/Boule), a wide selection of board and
card games, extensive Blu-Ray and DVD Selection (Blu-Ray Player in unit).

Before you notice, your ‘stay in place’ time will be over. And if you have time and can/want to
stay longer (many of our guests extended their stay once they arrived in Anguilla), take
advantage of our long term stay rates.

Long Term Stays at Carimar Beach Club:

If you stay with us for more than 14 days this season, you will qualify for a substantial discount
off of our regular rates, depending on the time of the year and your length of stay. As of today, this
offer is valid for stays until April 30th , 2021. This might be extended, always depending on the
restrictions and Covid-19 situation in the coming months.

If you have a little bit more time or can imagine working from your balcony overlooking Meads
Bay for a month or more, this might be the chance to enjoy Anguilla for such an extensive time.
Best of all, after your 10 to 14 days ‘Stay in Place’ vacation, you can enjoy your vacation the
same way you always did, without any restrictions (but let’s keep social distancing and hygiene
measures in place). If you are interested, please provide us with your preferred dates and we
will happily send you the pricing for your ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ long-term stay with us!

We hope that this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions or comments,
please contact us by email – carimar@carimar.com or call us toll-free at 866-270-3764. We will be happy to assist you to finalize your next visit to Carimar Beach Club.

New Cancellation Policy Due to COVID-19:

We hope that you and your family are all safe and healthy. Although we know that traveling can
still be challenging in these times, Carimar remains operational and open and is looking forward
to welcoming our guests back to Anguilla – whenever you feel comfortable visiting us again. The
ongoing vaccinations will certainly assist in feeling safer to travel. We at Carimar will be ready to
welcome you back.

We have implemented protocols and safety measures to make sure to keep everybody safe and
still have their special time in their ‘home away from home’ with us in Anguilla. We fully
understand that we all do not know what the next months might bring and with ever-changing
travel restrictions, your vacation plans might change. To that end, until further notice, Carimar
Beach Club is offering you flexibility, in case your travel plans are affected by official travel
restrictions. In such a case, you can reschedule your vacation with us at no additional costs for a
period of up to 13 months from your original arrival date. As an alternative, we can also offer a
full refund of your deposit should your reservation be affected by the COVID-19 crisis and fall
within the 60-day cancellation period. Please contact us at carimar@carimar.com or call us toll-
free 866-270-3764 to answer any questions or to reschedule your trip.

When you are ready, we will be ready to provide you with a much-needed escape to relax and
rejuvenate after this incredibly stressful period. Please take care of yourselves and your family.
