BVI Holidays

Lambert Beach Resort is Back!

Lambert Beach Resort and Spa in the beautiful BVI has reopened.   The resort has the same Italian owners who have completely refurbished the property and added a fitness room, tennis court and spa.  It’s just beautiful.

Lambert Beach Resort is situated on a stunning beach at the Northeast of Tortola close to Beef Island airport.  They have a brand new chef offering many culinary delights, not only at the beachfront restaurant but at the poolside and swim-up bars too.

You can also combine a few nights at Lambert Beach Resort on Tortola with a few nights on beautiful Virgin Gorda or prior to, or after a yacht charter.  It’s all very flexible.

Call BVI Holidays to book your stay at Lambert Beach Resort and Spa.



World Travel Week

You may or may not be aware that week commencing 6th January was World Travel Week.  Back in December, I was approached and asked if I would be interested in promoting the BVI as the “go to” destination for 2020.  Of course I was, I didn’t need to be asked twice!  What an amazing opportunity to raise awareness for the beautiful BVI.

I went along to the recording studio in London on 8th January and was interviewed by several radio stations including Sky and BBC Radio Norfolk – 16 interviews altogether!  I was extremely nervous but excited too.  It all went really well and it was a real pleasure speaking with so many different presenters in locations all over the UK.

Where is YOUR “go to” destination this year, or even next year?  I do hope it is the beautiful British Virgin Islands.

If you would rather be here doing this

then that’s absolutely fine, but if you would rather be doing this….

Exciting New Updates From the BVI

It’s exciting times in the beautiful BVI.  Rosewood Little Dix Bay  on Virgin Gorda is re-opening on January 1st and the hotel looks absolutely stunning.  I always wondered how they could improve on perfection but….they have done just that and I can’t wait to visit.  So much has been upgraded and they now have butler service catering to their guests’ every need.

After an active day perhaps playing tennis, kayaking or island hopping around the other islands in the BVI, you can have a nice relaxing treatment in the Rosewood Little Dix Bay Spa followed by an aperitif in the Rum Room before enjoying a delicious dinner in one of Little Dix’s three fabulous restaurants.  The following day you can take advantage of the complimentary beach drop off provided by Rosewood Little Dix Bay…..who wouldn’t like to be here…….

More exciting news comes from the Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda.  The owners have been working hard on the rebuild since the hurricane in 2017 – the eye passed directly over Bitter End and the hotel was wiped out completely.  After the recovery operation on the island was completed (the owners of Bitter End were very involved in this), they got down to the painstaking task of clearing away the debris and now the first phase is almost complete. This will be the shops along the waterfront, the docks, moorings, marina facilities and dining.  There will also be plenty of great spots to enjoy Painkillers and killer sunsets!  We have to be patient – rebuilding Bitter End is not just about building an hotel – it’s like rebuilding a small town!

The day is not too far away when we will be seeing this beautiful sight again in the North Sound, Virgin Gorda.  The buzzing, thriving hub that is the Bitter End Yacht Club.



The Sailing Capital of the World

What happens when steady trade winds meet an island-flecked channel with tame currents and hundreds of protected salt-rimmed bays?  They create the sailing capital of the world – an ocean of great adventure.

There really is nothing like sailing in the British Virgin Islands.  Discover hidden coves, great anchorages and snorkel spots and deserted white sand beaches.

If you want that “adrenalin rush” join in with the many regattas that are held throughout the BVI.  From a fun “whatever floats” race to high level international, match-racing regattas.  The BVI is the place to be.

You can charter monohulls, catamarans and power boats and because the islands of the BVI are close together, you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner on 3 different islands.  If you would rather sit back and let someone else do all the work, you can hire your very own skipper while you sit back and enjoy a rum punch on the aft deck.

There is lots of fun to be had below the waves as well as above – the snorkelling and diving in the BVI are second to none and you can also try your hand at SNUBA, which is somewhere between the two and particularly good for people who have never snorkelled before.

The British Virgin Islands are special – do come and see for yourself.


It’s Official – BVI is the Best!

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) has been ranked as the number-one best holiday destination in the Caribbean.

Online travel magazine ‘US News’ ranked the BVI ahead of 16 other Caribbean destinations, edging out St Lucia who ranked second and the neighbouring US Virgin Islands in third place.

The online magazine computed these rankings based on their user-votes and expert insights along with other contributing factors which included accessibility to beaches, tourist attractions and comfortable accommodations.

It also described the BVI as a paradise which attracts travellers who love sailing, diving and seclusion. US News further dissected the main and sister islands, listing some of the benefits tourists can look forward to when travelling to the territory.

For Tortola the online magazine described the main island as having mountainous cliffs and chalk-white beaches characterised by changing tides and calm, easterly winds.

Jost Van Dyke was labelled as having the region’s best New Year’s Eve parties, offering delicious Caribbean food and drink and providing water sport activities such as diving and fishing.

The popular attraction, The Baths – which can be described as the pride and joy of Virgin Gorda – was said to be one of the most ‘picturesque shores’ in the BVI. Anegada in the meantime, was described as the place to be for supreme seclusion, for its slow pace, flat terrain and sparkling sand.

The BVI also ranked high in some of the magazine’s other regional categories including third best family holiday destination and one of the best places to visit in February. The territory was also mentioned for best Caribbean honeymoons and best Caribbean beaches.

Only one thing left for you to do – pick up the phone and ask me to arrange YOUR holiday to this beautiful Caribbean paradise that is the British Virgin Islands.






Guana Island

One of my favourite spots in the whole BVI is beautiful Guana Island.  It really is heaven on earth.  Stay in a luxurious hillside cottage or your own private villa with pool.  Enjoy stunning beaches, excellent snorkelling and a choice of watersports.

You can challenge your partner to a game of tennis or be pampered in the Spa.  Sip herbal tea in the orchard specially made for you by the lovely Jamal.  Feed the 6′ long iguanas on fruit – they love melon balls (!) and enjoy freshly laid eggs for breakfast from Guana’s very own hens.  There are numerous hiking trails on Guana, all clearly marked and some more challenging than others.

After a delicious dinner on one of Guana Island’s romantic terraces, you can watch your favourite movie in the Garden of Eden while popping popcorn and sipping your favourite wine.

Allow me to arrange your next holiday to Guana Island in the beautiful BVI.

Peaceful, personal, paradise……this is Guana Island.

Island Hopping in the BVI

In my opinion, the British Virgin Islands is the best destination in the world to go island hopping.  You can visit so many beautiful beaches and have lots of amazing snorkel stops in one day.

How many islands you can visit (and there are lots) depends on whether you wish to be under sail or power.  If you just want to enjoy a leisurely sail on a lovely catamaran where you have plenty of sunbathing space, a suggested itinerary would be to head for Virgin Gorda and spend time at the Baths or Devil’s Bay.  There is a trail between the two but you need “jelly” shoes or similar – it’s not for the faint hearted!  Next stop could be snorkelling at Fallen Jerusalem which comprises a jumble of granite boulders interspersed with small patches of silky sand.

Moving on for lunch at Cooper Island Beach Club is a must where you can be lazy and watch the marine life (in real time) drift past on a television positioned above the bar, while you enjoy a nice cocktail.

Another quick stop is to snorkel among the magnificent tarpons at Benure’s Bay, Peter Island en route to Norman Island for a late afternoon cocktail at Pirate’s Bight Beach Bar.

A truly fabulous day out and, if you are under power, there are so many more places in the beautiful BVI you can visit in a day.

A Great Testimonial from Sandy in Georgia, USA!

Thank you BVI Holidays and particularly, Joyce Kinniburgh, for relentlessly searching for a place in the BVI to meet the needs of our large family vacation.  She certainly met every need we had! We are most grateful for her finding these two lovely homes for us to enjoy.


Blue Lagoon and Beachcomber houses in Mahoe Bay Virgin Gorda are an amazing combination of homes for a large family gathering.  Over Thanksgiving of 2018 we took our five children, their spouses and their children to Virgin Gorda for a week. Our group made up 12 adults and 12 children under the age of 10.  The accommodations could not have been better. 3 couples and four children stayed in Blue Lagoon and the rest stayed at Beachcomber. Every bedroom was comfortable with air conditioning, adjoining bathrooms and plenty of beds to accommodate our needs.  All of our requests were waiting for us which included groceries, high chairs and porta cribs. We took advantage of a chef coming to prepare one meal for us which was a huge hit. The guys in our group held non stop ping pong matches at the provided game table as well as putting competitions on the lovely green at Blue Lagoon.  Both homes provided modern kitchens with all updated appliances including extra sharp cutlery. Being that we had serious cooks among us, that was quite a welcome bonus! Being able to have laundry handled for a crowd this size made packing lighter for all. Our housekeeper, who came daily, helped keep everything tidy as well. As far as swimming is concerned,  we were able to protect the more fair skinned little ones from the hottest sun in the shaded pool area of Blue Lagoon whilst enjoying the beautiful view. The two homes are merely a concrete road distance between each other so the children ran safely back and forth throughout our stay. Both homes are equipped for larger numbers to socialize. We also appreciated that we never felt on top of one another and that there was always space for the introverted to escape the energy of 12 children.


There are no words to describe the beauty of the landscaping of both homes but Beachcomber is beyond words. It is a tropical paradise. The Beachcomber pool is easily accessible with outdoor dining space for large crowds both near the house and additional space near the ocean. The beach is smooth beautiful white sand with calm enough waves to enjoy paddle boarding and snorkeling. I appreciated the shower and faucet near the beach for easy clean up of sand covered children as well as the placement of the hammock in the tree to be able to view everything going on both at the beach and the house.  Of course, all the children and the adults enjoyed the outdoor shower experience in most of the bedrooms. We felt like special guests of the owner as he sent someone to check on any maintenance issues (of which there were none) or any questions we might have.


Mahoe Bay, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

We have traveled extensively in the BVI over the years.  This is by far the most beautiful and welcoming place we have stayed.  I highly recommend it. Sandy Thoms/ Athen, Georgia, USA

Thank you Sandy for this amazing and wonderful review.

If you would like to stay at either Beachcomber or Blue Lagoon, please do call and I will be delighted to arrange this for you.
