Malliouhana, an Auberge Resort, has been regarded as one of the finest resorts in the Caribbean since it’s opening in 1984. The resort is built atop a panoramic bluff overlooking the Caribbean and reaching down to the white sands of Meads Bay and Turtle Cove beaches. Currently undergoing renovation under the management of luxury hotel operator Auberge Resorts, the newly refurbished resort will re-emerge, blending modern amenities with the warmth and gracious hospitality of the Caribbean. Auberge Resorts was brought in to re-brand and manage the property in February of last year and is scheduled to re-open in fall 2014.
