Peter Island Resort Peter Island, British Virgin Islands

Peter Island Resort
Peter Island, British Virgin Islands

Style: Classic Luxury. Built: 1970. Remodeled: 2001. Rooms: 52.

Named one of the "Best Places to Stay in the World" and "Top 20 Islands" in the world by Conde Nast Traveler, Peter Island is a private island, with all the exclusivity and romance that provides. At Peter Island there are more staff members than guests, with only 52 rooms and 1,200 acres of lush, mountainous terrain and 5 private beaches. Accessible only by boat or helicopter, the largest private island in the BVI is surrounded by the sparkling waters of the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Sir Francis Drake Channel.

For those seeking an unparalleled way to experience the idyllic, undeveloped serenity of the island, the resort's self-contained luxury villas are unmatched. For today's traveling elite, it has always been the impossible dream - to have the privacy, intimacy and comfort of a villa (preferably on a private island) and, at the same time, all the facilities of a leading resort. That dream becomes a reality with Peter Island's four extraordinary villas: Crow's Nest, Hawk's Nest, Ravens's Nest, and Falcon's Nest (the latter two are 2005 openings). The recipe: idyllic locations with breathtaking views, a choice of architectural styles and villa sizes, complete privacy, and the finest furnishing. Every possible need has been anticipated, from a villa director (who will customize your stay in advance of your arrival), to European chefs, personal villa staffs, a SUV, and even a private helicopter pad for easy access. Rates and reservations for Peter Island Luxury Villas are available by calling 1-888-5-Star-11.

All Peter Island guests are delighted with exceptional cuisine, an elegant wine room, and open-air restaurants. The Resort is known throughout the Caribbean as much for its inspired scenery as for its innovative cuisine, which artfully combines international favorites with island flair. Classic yet contemporary dishes- fused with Asian and Italian culinary influences- are served with graceful warmth by the personable Caribbean staff. Rediscover nature during one of the horticulture tours or on a self-guided hiking expedition. If you venture near White Bay, you may spy sea turtles feeding near the coral reefs. Spend an afternoon snorkeling or scuba diving (with top instructors based right at the resort) and explore the crystalline waters where life flows suspended in aqueous silence. The 10,000 square foot spa is built on its own secluded beach of flour white sand, 150 feet from the water, close enough to hear the waves and high enough to enjoy the astonishing view, bordered by coconut palms and filled with the ever-changing blues of Caribbean Sea and sky.
