A special Valentine's Day episode of The Bachelor, which of course aired last night, was filmed at the tony CuisinArt Resort on the Caribbean island of Anguilla. The hotel, a favorite of Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter, his girlfriend Minka Kelly and Oprah hosted Brad Womack, the easy-on-the-eyes love-seeking Bachelor, as well as six young ladies looking to be The One.

The two-hour long episode was filmed during the resort's annual closedown last year, so the man had the whole resort to himself to individually court each gal. It's no wonder he didn't pick a woman the last go-round in 2007. And while we think he was kind of a jerk to leave the women of that season hanging, with perks like this we'd be hesitant to get locked down too. Anyway, CuisinArt just introduced six private three-and five-bedroom beachfront and garden view villas, where the group stayed. We just happen to be here and thought we'd give you a look inside their very swank rooms.

We doubt dear Brad knew this, but the resort is owned by Leandro Rizzuto, founder of Conair Corporation, which bought the kitchen appliance manufacturer CuisinArt. So, naturally, the villas have full kitchens stocked with all things CuisinArt. What a huge plug it would have been to have Mr. Romance whip up some gourmet vittles for these ingenues. Housewives and foodies would be storming department stores in droves today buying up blenders and shiny steel toasters.

Instead, the guy went the traditional route and treated one gal to a private dinner for two in the villas "backyard" fronting the Caribbean Sea. Cute. But there's nothing hotter than a man in a kitchen, especially when this kitchen is in a villa on a tropical island.

The villas also have their own private pool, in which the girls hung around in their teeny bikinis, but the real action took place when our man Brad took one gal (honestly we can't remember her name, they all kind of blend) down the private path to the beach and did that whole cliche making-out-in-the-sand-and-ocean bit. While we wanted to hurl at the thought, we realized that we were just haters and would probably be doing the same thing with a hottie of our own, given the opportunity.

Who knows what'll happen next on the show. But if it gives us more hotel eye-candy like this, we'll be watching. Rooms at the CuisinArt Anguilla begin around $440 per night, with the villas starting at $2,000.
