This Top British Virgin Islands Resort Is Going Independent
One of the top resorts in the British Virgin Islands will once again be operating as an independent property. The BVI’s Scrub Island Resort is ending its 11-year affiliation with Marriott’s Autograph Collection.
Scrub Island was actually the first hotel in the Caribbean to join the Autograph Collection back in 2010.
“Since opening in 2010, Scrub Island has only grown in popularity as a prized sanctuary for travelers seeking an exceptional island getaway,” said Joe Collier, President and Founder of Mainsail Lodging & Development, which owns the private-island resort. “We greatly value our relationship with Marriott, but the time is right for Scrub Island to return to its original status as an independent property, allowing us the creativity and flexibility to further cultivate authentic and elevated vacations in the BVI. Our upcoming enhancements, along with our expanded and elevated villa offerings are ideal for an independent private island resort marketed to a targeted audience seeking luxury homes and suites with bespoke amenities.”
The property is already in the mist of an upgrade, one that includes a new round of capital improvements and two new villas, among other changes.
The resort has a total of 52 accomdations across a mix of rooms and suites, along with a collection of 13 different villas, with two, three, four and six-bedroom layouts.
It’s also home to two private beaches.
