Tainos Wellness Centre. Jill Walker (email@example.com) writes:
I have brought some of my favorite treatments with me from my last Spa (Manager of CuisinArt's Venus Spa). The Facial & Body Treatments are easily done in any room (decks & pool terraces are great, too). I feel incredibly blessed and lucky to have two women working with me- both professional, caring & excellent at what they do: Donna Gellman (from West End- studied Yoga & Body-Rolling in New York); and Vivian Massard (LaSirena- expert Cranial/Sacral therapist & Reflexologist).
I would like people to know that I have these therapeutic & pampering treatments mobile and ready to bring to private villas, resorts & homes. ('Instead of going to the Spa, the Spa comes to you!').

My mother lives there and I've been coming down there for the past 24 years. Unfortunately, this year I cannot make it and your web site has lightened the blow or the withdrawal of not coming down. Your site gives me information as if I'm right there. I get to see many friends faces in your photo's . Thank you so much. Randi

New to Anguilla?
Recently (1997) he was invited to exhibit at "Lineart" Gent (Belgium), at "A Prints of a Gift" Gallery on Hamilton Bay (Canada), then a personal exhibition at Galleria Miniaci in Positano (1998), introduced by Alessandra Scappini, "Galerie Quadrige" in Nice, Galerie "Alain Beciani" in Charleroi (Belgium), and Galleria Miniaci in Capri; (1999) "Fiera di Carrara" and at "Art Padova", then "I mille volti dell'Arno" Villa Caruso Lastra in Signa (Florence); (2000) with Galleria Miniaci at "Expo Art" in New York.
A virtual gallery of Antonio Biancaluni is available on the web at http://www.antoniobiancaluni.com
The artist was invited by Antonio Miniaci and Leandro Rizzuto to spend some time at Cuisinart Resort in Anguilla to exhibit his art works. Antonio Biancaluni could not be in Anguilla for a few days without being inspired by the beauty and colours of the island: he composed some paintings of incredible beauty which are shown in the gallery together with other works of his.
Antonio Miniaci is a merchant and art collector; his galleries in Capri, Positano, Milan and Miami and of course in Anguilla are internationally famous. Antonio Miniaci is also a protector of arts and culture and founded Miniaci Clubs all over the world by which he supports and introduces many endowed and talented artists.
Moreover, he is carrying on an interesting project in the South of Italy by founding and supporting a centre for the development of art and artists. In New York Antonio Miniaci met Leandro Rizzuto, an American of Italian origins, successful entrepreneur and developer and owner of the deluxe Cuisinart Resort in West End, Anguilla. The common southern Italian roots and the passion for art and beauty led them to conceive a space for art in Anguilla within the Resort.

To find them, take the road out of The Valley through The Quarter and Sandy Hill. As you enter East End village you will see them on the right. If you get to the Cable and Wireless out-station you went too far.
You can eat in, but the ambience is somewhat lacking. Call 264.497.4381 to pre-order your meal for pickup.
