On completion the Jumeirah Anguilla Resort project will consist of a 140-room Jumeirah luxury hotel with a spacious spa, conference facilities and beach clubs, as well as 460 residential units, which will also be managed by Jumeirah. Renowned golfer Jack Nicklaus has designed a championship 18-hole "Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course" for the Jumeirah Anguilla Resort. His Signature Course runs along a magnificent stretch of oceanfront property with several holes playing to or along the water. The course offers spectacular views across the sea to the beautiful peaks of St. Maarten.
