This time of year often centers on excellent gifts and plans to spend time with family and friends. An exclusive beach escape to Anguilla—a partnership between Àni Villas and Moët Hennessy—offers the ultimate combination of the two.

The retreat for up to 14 guests (available now through 2014) includes round-trip private-jet service, a weeklong stay in a pair of five-bedroom villas overlooking Anguilla’s Little Bay, a custom list of Champagnes and wines curated by a Moët Hennessy Champagne expert and exceptional dining experiences designed by a private chef. (For example, the Rosé Sunset Cruise, a jaunt by sailboat to a private island for a freshly caught seafood dinner, is paired with Ruinart Rosé Champagne and select Cloudy Bay and Numanthia vintages.)

“Guests at Àni Villas are discerning travelers who value high-end unique experiences,” says general manager Felix Pina. “As a result, we wanted to find a way to complement their villa experience with luxury indulgences prior, during and after their stay.”

The estate values privacy and features infinity pools, indoor and outdoor dining options and a full-service team—from concierges to butlers to. Guests can enjoy a tennis court, a full gym, mountain bikes and paddleboards, as well as yoga and a variety of spa services. Add in your favorite people and it’s one lovely package to put at the top of your wish list. From $250,000; 264-497-7888 (ask for Ira Bloom);;
