Looking towards a winter break that’s packed full of sun, fun and good times? We look at the luxury options available in the British Virgin Islands.
Known for fantastic Caribbean scenery and as the location of Richard Branson’s Necker Island, the BVIs make the perfect winter escape. After being quite badly hit by Hurricane Irma in 2017, the British Virgin Islands have been revamped and redeveloped. Now is the perfect time to book that luxury holiday…
Blessed with 60 stunning islands and cays, great hiking trails and fun nightlife, these are the 7 best luxury experiences you can book in the British Virgin Islands.
Experience true luxury at Guana Island
Twenty minutes by boat from the airport and you’ll be able to relax at the privately owned Guana Island. Spread over 850 acres, this resort has no public marina and houses only 35 guests at most at any one time. What this means is you’ll be able to experience a truly serene and luxurious holiday….
Turquoise Holidays offer a 7-night stay at Guana Island from £3,995 per person. This includes accommodation in a Sea View Cottage on a full a board basis, international flights and boat transfers.
Party the night away at Oil Nut Bay
If you’re after a great location to host friends and family for an unforgettable winter break, Oil Nut Bay is perfect. Set at the eastern end of Virgin Gorda, the third biggest island in the archipelago, it’s perfect for exploring beaches and bays with your private boat rental or just enjoying the villas.
Exclusive access to Necker Island
Sir Richard Branson is opening his Necker Island paradise to visitors for a once in a lifetime experience. Previously only available to those invited by the billionaire entrepreneur, now you too can experience the exclusivity.
Glamping at Anegada Beach Club
You’ve never been camping like this! Anegada is a beach front complex offering beautiful huts right by the beach. For affordable and stylish luxury, this is an unbeatable experience, perfect for couples and families. Go paddle boarding or snorkelling, play giant jenga, or just relax with a good book on your verandah.
Luxury eco-tourism at Cooper Island
Producing their own water and energy, Cooper’s Island is a beautiful family owned resort. Much of the furniture is made from reclaimed fishing boats, and the whole island is surrounded by reefs ready for you to explore by snorkel, kayak or paddle board. Oh, and they also make their own eco-friendly beer on site too!
In Mahoe Bay, on the western coast of Virgin Gorda, you’ll find a variety of villas available for rental during the winter. These villas all face the sunset and are perfect for big groups, such as families or friends. If you tire of the wide sandy beach and the gently lapping blue sea, you can wander hiking trails along the coast or head to nearby Spanish Town for shopping and dining.
Set sail in the British Virgin Islands
One of the main reasons many come to the British Virgin Islands is for a luxury sailing experience. There are many options for chartering both bareboats and captained yacht charters all across the BVIs with Sailo. For a day trip, a fishing trip, or something a little longer, choose an incredible sailing experience.
We think the British Virgin Islands are one of the best luxury destinations, so book your deal now before the winter cold bites….
