Zemi Beach House Anguilla: Forget the View, Focus on the Taxes

Zemi Beach Taxes is part of the Birthday Bash Trip Report.


What is your favorite part of trip planning? Mine is putting together my Excel spreadsheet showing how much I saved versus how much someone who purchases Rimowa Luggage would spend. I have a dedicated page on my blog for these works of art (see Bus-Ted: TPOL Points & Cash Summary). As I was filling in the cells for this trip, I went to Hilton.com to see the retail price for a stay at Zemi Beach Anguilla. The cost of the stay would have been $4,076.99 for three nights. While that is shocking, what was more offensive were the taxes.

It’s an additional $866.76 in taxes, almost as much as one night. Money must not mean anything for those fancy luggage folk.

  1. A 27% tax on hotel rates isn’t particularly unusual. I just checked my next trip, and both my hotels in Denmark charge 25%.
