Once you take out your passport, get ready to be on island time in the beautiful British Virgin Islands. The charming and intimate Scrub Island is situated just off the coast of Tortola and is home to Scrub Island Resort, the only a five star resort on the island that boasts infinity pools, incredible restaurants, private beaches and a spa that looks out onto the vast ocean and a private marina. From the mainland, Scrub Island Resort picks you up at a private dock with their own private vessel where you will be greeted with a freshly made island cocktail.

The luxurious accommodations are designed as private beach villas with high wooden ceilings, marble bathrooms, and fully stocked kitchens! Admire the majestic crystal blue waters of the Caribbean from your expansive private balcony.



Treat yourself at the Ixora Spa that’s tucked away at one of the highest points on the island. Before or after your treatment, be sure to take a dip into their private infinity pool offering the best view on the entire island.

Scrub Island Resort is home to two delicious restaurants, Tierra! Tierra! and Caravela Restaurant and Bar. Tierra! Tierra! looks out over the pools and beach – and is the perfect spot for a late lunch or snack while sunning out by the pool. Once you’ve showered off and have gotten dressed up for the night – Caravela is the ideal spot for a romantic evening with an expansive wine and cocktail list. Dabble in the succulent filet mignon for dinner. In the morning Caravela serves a bountiful breakfast buffet with the best the Caribbean has to offer and an exclusive island blend coffee to fuel the day’s activities. At the casual Tierra! Tierra! enjoy local BVI fare such as the crispy Coconut Shrimp- a perfect afternoon snack.



To enhance your fun in the sun, visit one of the many bars on the resort for an exotic Caribbean elixir. Take the waterslide which brings you right to the swim up pool bar where you can meet their award winning mixologist, Casper who keeps the action going at the swim up bar at the lower level pool. He offers guests a personal experience with every drink he makes and infuses freshly grown herbs from his personal rooftop garden in his island concoctions.


Take advantage of the many water sports available at your disposal such as their world class diving and snorkeling, kayaking, and sailing. While you’re exploring – we recommend heading over to Marina Cay Island and visit Prussel’s Restaurant where you can sip on their famous painkiller drinks or heavenly chicken sandwich while your feet are in the sand!



With plenty of options for adventure or relaxation, Scrub Island Resort is the ideal spot for quite the romantic getaway. From the time you step off the boat to zipping up your suitcase to return home, the staff treats you like family with non-stop smiles and handshakes. Your wish is their command and their number one priority is making sure you love everything about your trip. You’re a short plane ride away from paradise – so do what we did – just go!
