EXTRAORDINARY GEMS OF THE NORTHWEST CARIBBEAN
W

ith hidden coves, secluded caves and reef-lined beaches, you’ll quickly understand why the celebrity-studded British Virgin Islands are known locally as Nature’s Little Secrets—and will no doubt appreciate the eco-conscious approach to keeping it beautifully clean. And while this destination is the dazzling sailing capital of the Caribbean (you never know whose yacht may anchor nearby), there is plenty to experience ashore. Sip the creamy coconut flavors of a tropical “painkiller” cocktail, take a dip in a mysteriously beautiful volcanic grotto, and get adventurous with a new water sport — perhaps a nighttime kayak tour. With turquoise water and soft white sand, it’s everything you’d expect out of the Caribbean, but with an elegant twist.

PRIVATE ISLAND PARADISE

NECKER ISLAND | VIRGIN GORDA

Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson’s 74-acre private island paradise, is situated on Virgin Gorda, a stunning and unspoiled area of the Caribbean. Surrounded by coral reefs and fringed with beautiful white sand beaches, you’ll sink into inviting beds, indulge in world-class food, and enjoy the most thrilling (or relaxing) island activities. Famously, Necker can be fully reserved as a private hideaway for your group—but you don’t always have to book this private island to enjoy it. Individual rooms for weekly stays are available during select weeks of the year.

EXCLUSIVE ECO-TOURISM

ROSEWOOD LITTLE DIX BAY | VIRGIN GORDA

An eco-tourism destination long before the term was ever coined, Rosewood Little Dix Bay (developed by conservationist Laurance Rockefeller over half a century ago) celebrates Virgin Gorda’s untamed natural beauty. Foodies will appreciate the chance to join the Chef for a garden cooking class, or simply explore the menus of three open-air dining experiences. After an active day of hiking trails or watersport adventures, head to the award-winning cliff-side spa, set high on a bluff with intoxicating beauty and panoramic views. For a unique spa adventure, journey to the healing waters of The Baths, a geological wonder of awe-inspiring boulders with secret rock pools.

LUXURIOUS VILLA SECLUSION

BRANSON ESTATE | MOSKITO ISLAND

Moskito Island goes beyond your ordinary villa rental—it is one of the most exclusive private islands in the world, sprawling across 125 secluded acres. Of the island’s three estates, the Branson Estate (available for up to 22 guests) is a nod to Necker Island, just a short boat ride away. If you are seeking a perfect balance of a 'home away from home' feeling with all of the activities and services you'd expect from a luxury resort, this is just your style. Fill your days with excursions, spa treatments, private dining and watersports without having to socialize beyond your own group (unless you desire to, that is).

LUSH ENCLAVE OASIS

VILLA AQUAMARE | VIRGIN GORDA

Understated and serene, Villa Aquamare is a personal sanctuary offering three expansive beachfront villas hidden in a secluded enclave. Each villa features five bedrooms, a private infinity pool and breathtaking views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel. You and your travel companions can escape with privacy and tranquillity yet enjoy the comforts of personalized amenities and warm Caribbean hospitality—from a private chef with your favorite ingredients to a boat captain ready to set sail. If you’d like to achieve mastery in the art of being, you’ll learn quite a bit here.
