In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma last fall, the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla served as the relief center for the Anguilla Stronger fund, offering water, meals, showers, and other aid for more than 1,000 affected employees of local hotels. The fund, which was launched by the resort’s owner, Starwood Capital Group, went on to raise more than $1.7 million and provide everything from books to building supplies for island residents. While recovery efforts on Anguilla are still ongoing, the island is well on its way to reclaiming its position as a top Caribbean destination—and the Four Seasons is once again leading the charge.
Like almost all hotels on Anguilla, the Four Seasons suffered damages during Hurricane Irma. The 35-acre beach resort, which debuted as a Four Seasons in 2016, shuttered for nearly seven months before reopening to hotel guests and residence owners in late March. During the closure, a few of those owners arranged to send relief supplies via private plane to support the Anguilla Stronger campaign. Visitors interested in making a contribution of their own can consult with the resort’s concierges, who will arrange volunteer opportunities and other methods to aid in Anguilla’s recovery.
