Looking for a Rum-soaked island getaway to relieve you of the last six months of coronavirus-induced stress? Then the Zemi Beach House on the shore of Shoal Bay in Anguilla may be just the place for you. The British overseas territory has recently announced plans to reopen to tourists, making it an ideal spot to sit in the sun, sip rum, and just generally enjoy some time not being worried.
What makes this boutique resort perfect for Rum lovers–other than the beautiful bay and white sand beach sitting in naked toe’s grasp–is the “Rhum Room.” There, guests can sip rums from across the globe or enjoy them in a variety of craft cocktails created by some of the best-versed bartenders in the Rum mixing game.
The Zemi Beach House takes Rum seriously. They have a “rummelier,” that’s the sommelier equivalent for Rum, who will guide visitors through a variety of hand-chosen tasting menus. Whether you’re interested in the French, English, or Spanish island variants, there’s a list made to fit your heart’s desire.
Those looking to get a larger pictuerer may want to try the Pirates of Caribbean, which runs $90 and includes Rums from Barbados, Jamaica, Bermuda, Guadeloupe, and Martinique. There’s also an Ultra-Premium Rummelier Selection for $100, which includes a selection of 5 ultra-premium rums chosen daily by the Rummelier. Those interested in guiding their own tour can choose from pages of options.
As stated above, Anguilla has announced its plans to begin reopening to tourists. Those interested in visiting the island must fill out an application, which can be found here. Tourists will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test that has been conducted within three to five days prior to arriving on the island.
