Glamping on Anegada at the Anegada Beach Club (British Virgin Islands)

“Glamorous” and “camping” are two words that I don’t normally associate with each other, but glamping at the Anegada Beach Club has made me think differently. The ABC blends the perfect mix of luxe amenities with undisturbed rugged beauty to create a truly unique and magical experience for guests. 

I stayed at the Anegada Beach Club in 2016 (and it was fabulous), but they fully renovated in 2017 and it looks even dreamier. The “tents” have been upgraded and look more like thatched huts, but it’s all still the same vibe. 

The resort has five tents that front the beautiful white sand beach (there were two others set back on a second row as well as some more traditional guest rooms situated more towards the pool and restaurant area), and obviously, apart from it being a tent, there was nothing rustic about our setup.

So besides the ah-mazing beachfront tents at the ABC, the resort has quite a few nice amenities. The resort boasts the only pool on Anegada (and they keep it at the perfect temperature) and up by the restaurant/bar/pool areas are plenty of hammocks and places to lounge around in.

The restaurant had some of the best food we had on the island and they served breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The staff was also nice enough to fill our Yeti tumblers up with ice for us so we’d had cool drinks down at the beach. Speaking of the beach, the ABC had plenty of beach loungers and palapas that provided shade.

After spending 5 nights at the ABC, here’s my takeaway: the Anegada Beach Club is like a really cool summer camp for adults! Now mind you, I never went away to summer camp but I have my ideas. Maybe it’s the tents, or maybe it’s the small but super friendly staff or the other tent dwellers that were oh-so-happy to sit around the beach bar and chat over PainKillers, but the ABC has a real community feel that makes it perfect for a true getaway.

If you’re skeptical about sleeping in a tent, here’s the deal: 1) the bathrooms were probably the nicest I’ve ever had ANYWHERE, 2) it was downright luxurious, 3) everything is netted to keep out mosquitoes plus there was an electric mosquito killer, 4) fans kept up plenty cool at night, 5) we had a couple of stormy and windy nights and even though it sure sounded like we were going to blow away, I’m happy to report that we didn’t ; )
