One of the top resort comunities in the British Virgin Islands is reopening for the holidays.
Virgin Gorda’s Oil Nut Bay luxury eco-resort community is planning to reopen as early as Dec. 16, the property announced in a statement.
The opening will include the property’s beach club, restaurant, resort amenities and marina.
The resort is already open to its homeowners and will begin renting villas and suites to guests in March 2018.
“We are grateful for our amazing team and many outside partners. As a result of their herculean efforts, clean-up is complete and forward progress continues at a rapid pace at Oil Nut Bay,” said David V. Johnson, founder of Victor BVI, the developer of Oil Nut Bay. “Following Irma, our immediate goals have been to make sure our team members have a job to come to every day, to support the relief efforts of Virgin Gorda and to build the public’s confidence in the future of the British Virgin Islands. Oil Nut Bay and the BVI will come back, better than before.”
It’s a strong sign of recovery for the British Virgin Islands in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
“We could not be where we are today without the unwavering support from Oil Nut Bay’s homeowners, who have generously contributed to the North Sound Foundation to help the relief efforts of our surrounding community,” said Emily Oakes, Director of Marketing for Oil Nut Bay.
