Peter Island Resort in the British Virgin Islands reports that it will reopen in October 2024, and possibly sooner.
The luxury resort, which closed following the 2017 hurricane season, has since undergone a complete transformation, including brand new and upgraded accommodations and new state-of-the-art meeting and event facilities.
“After over six years, we are excited to raise the curtain on Peter Island Resort’s transformation to a new level of luxury,” says David Van Andel, president, Peter Island Resort. “Our evolved and re-imagined private island hideaway will welcome guests with the same warm, Caribbean hospitality, casual elegance and natural tropical wonders that have captivated visitors for decades. For generations we have been honored stewards of Peter Island and we look forward to sharing our revitalized Caribbean treasure once again in 2024.”
New facilities and improvements at the 52-key resort include:
- beachfront locations for all rooms, junior suites and two-bedroom villas;
- new infinity pool overlooking Deadman’s Beach;
- the rebuilding and redesign of Falcon’s Nest, a six-bedroom luxury villa situated on a mountain peak and delivering 360-degree views of the Virgin Islands;
- and the upgrade and redecoration of Hawks Nest Villa.
Peter Island Resort is also significantly expanding its meetings and events facilities to accommodate groups of up to 180 people with a new 3,000-square-foot oceanfront conference center featuring a pre-function veranda spanning its length as well as an on-site kitchen and flexible indoor spaces. Located on a stretch of oceanfront near the new Yacht Club, Drunken Pelican restaurant and Sprat Bay, the new facility is flanked by two event lawns.
In addition, the 10,000-square-foot Peter Island Spa, which will remain in its current location overlooking Big Reef Bay, is being upgraded and redesigned. It will reopen with seven treatment rooms including two couples treatment rooms, welcome and relaxation lounges, fitness center, spa boutique, beauty salon, saltwater pool, outdoor hot tub, and men’s and women’s change rooms.
The resort will welcome two new restaurants as well. The Drake Steakhouse, located on Deadman’s Beach, will offer a selection of surf and turf dishes with a Caribbean twist, while the Yacht Club’s Drunken Pelican will serve more casual fare along with crafted cocktails, and a selection of beers, wines and spirits.
Finally, the new Peter Island Yacht Club, located in Sprat Bay harbor, will be its own destination with a dedicated swimming pool for Yacht Club guests, Drunken Pelican restaurant and bar, a commissary, Sea Chest Boutique, and a sports recreation area with pickleball, basketball, bocce ball courts, and a lawn-games area.
The marina will be able to accommodate vessels ranging from power boats, sailboats and catamarans, to super yachts of up to 200 feet. To protect the coral reef and marine life surrounding the island, moorings will be located in White Bay, Sprat Bay, Deadman’s Bay, Key Bay and Little Harbour.
