BVI's Latest News

Virgin Gorda - Top Island in the Caribbean!

I am delighted to share the exciting news that leading publication Travel + Leisure has voted Virgin Gorda as the Top Island for the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas. It is the latest announcement in a series of good news for the British Virgin Islands when earlier this month it was revealed that a new direct, non-stop flight service between Antigua and Tortola – which is Virgin Gorda’s neighbour, just 20 mins away by boat – will come into effect from 1st November this year. In celebration of this accolade, the new flight and the 50th anniversary of the opening of Rosewood Little Dix Bay on Virgin Gorda, Little Dix Bay is offering a special 7 night package for two.

A landmark year for Rosewood Little Dix Bay, the resort marks 50 years since it was founded by Laurance Rockefeller. Reminiscent of its iconic past whilst looking forward to the next 50 years and beyond, Little Dix Bay is undertaking a multi-million dollar renovation, the first step of which was completed earlier this year with the unveiling of the new Tree House suites. Having undergone a full transformation, these five Tree House Suites are the rebirth of the iconic, stilted Tree House Cottages originally built by Rockefeller and are now luxurious spacious rooms with cool white interiors, large living areas and wraparound terraces with views of the ocean and just steps from the beach.

Exciting times for the BVI and beautiful Virgin Gorda!

 
The Painkiller

It has been a week of beautiful weather and let's hope it continues into the week-end!  Pimms has long been a popular drink of the British, consumed during these long, hot lazy days of summer. In the British Virgin Islands, the Painkiller is the "Pimms" of the BVI...only stronger!

The Painkiller originated at the Soggy Dollar bar on Jost van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands, however, If you can't be at the British Virgin Islands' Soggy Dollar Bar itself to enjoy a true painkiller drink, mixing it yourself is the next best thing. See below....


SERVES 1-2

2-4 oz. of Pusser's Rum
4 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. cream of coconut
1 oz. orange juice
Grated fresh nutmeg

In a jug half filled with ice add the first four ingredients and stir. Pour into cocktail glasses and top with fresh grated nutmeg.

Enjoy!

 
Lift Off to BVI!

Such exciting news for the British Virgin Islands!  BVI Holidays is delighted to announce that from November 2014 we can offer our clients a non-stop flight between Antigua and Tortola.  A local BVI company - VI Airlink has been chosen to operate the route and will guarantee that every passenger has a window seat and complimentary drinks.  Flying time will be just one hour from Antigua.

This means that guests can spend even longer in our beautiful islands....snorkelling the enchanting reefs or strolling on the deserted white sand beaches.

Call today and I will be happy to assist with planning your holiday to the beautiful, unspoilt British Virgin Islands.

 
11,000 Virgins

Some people are under the misapprehension that Christopher Columbus discovered the beautiful British Virgin Islands during his second voyage to the New World in 1493.  The BVI were virtually untouched by human hand and Columbus was so blown away by their beauty that he named them "Las Once Mil Las Virgines" after the legendary St Ursula and the 11,000 virgins.

In fact, Columbus wasn't the first to trip across the Virgin Islands.  They were first discovered by the Amerindian tribes who made their way up the island chain by canoe from Venezuela hundreds of years earlier, settling in small villages along the shoreline where they hunted and fished.

By the time Columbus sailed in, there was no longer any trace of these intrepid explorers.

 
Wonderful Holiday at the Sugar Mill

Having never visited the Caribbean before, we needed some help organising our recent trip to the BVI.
We were very fortunate in finding Joyce at BVI Holidays!  Her prompt and personal responses by email and phone ensured any queries were sorted quickly, and the right accommodation for us found. It was stunning.

The end result was a most memorable trip.

All the travel arrangements ran so smoothly, and all her recommendations were spot on.
 
Thank you Joyce - for giving us such an introduction to what everyone we met on BVI says are the best of the Caribbean islands - we can only agree. They are spectacular.
 
Kind regards
 
Sue
