Islands – Guana Island
Think paradise, think Guana Island. This 850 acre island in the BVI is privately owned and accommodates just 32 guests. The exclusivity has helped the tropical forests, mountains, valleys and beaches remain completely unspoilt. Enjoy seven pristine white sand beaches, miles of undisturbed natural beauty, comfortable accommodation and a personal service here on Guana Island in the beautiful British Virgin Islands.
Guana Island is a thriving ecosystem, home to threatened and endangered species like the Caribbean roseate flamingo, the stout rock iguana and the red footed tortoise. Taste fresh papaya, coconut and mango in the orchard and discover a diverse range of tropical fish and coral by snorkelling or diving one of Guana’s own reefs.
Accommodation on Guana Island is in spacious, comfortably furnished Sea View Cottages with private terraces, sprinkled along a scenic ridge with spectacular views of the neighbouring British Virgin Islands. Most have air conditioning and all feature ceiling fans, complimentary WiFi Internet access, hair dryers, coffee machines, iron and ironing board. Guana has one Seaview Pool Cottage which has all of the above but with the luxury of its own plunge pool and stunning views over Guana Island’s beautiful white sand beach.
For a really private hideaway retreat for two, North Beach Villa, with its own plunge pool and situated on a stunning white sand beach, offers complete privacy and seclusion.
Guana Island also offers luxurious two and three bedroom villas with pools, for families or groups of friends. The villas can also be rented as just one bedroom giving absolute and complete privacy.
Dining on Guana Island is casually elegant, with meals taken on outdoor dining terraces with spectacular sea views. Talented chefs prepare tantalising dishes with freshly caught seafood and organic island-grown fruit and vegetables. The Guana Island chickens provide enough fresh eggs every morning for their guests’ breakfasts!
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea and fruit are included in the cost on Guana Island and wine is included with lunch and dinner.
Enjoy a beach barbecue on occasional evenings, also included.
Enjoy a relaxing massage and a range of other treatments at Guana’s Water’s-Edge Spa or on your private terrace. Yoga classes are also offered in Guana’s own Garden of Eden with spectacular views. A charge applies for these services.
Hiking or walking enthusiasts have over twenty marked trails to choose from on Guana. You can hike by yourself or hire a guide. A tour of Guana’s orchard is a must – sample a banana straight from the tree, sip coconut water right from a coconut and enjoy some of Jamal’s freshly made soursop tea. You can also work off some energy on one of Guana’s tennis courts – they have an Omni Court and a Hydro Court – rackets and balls are provided, or try out your skills at croquet, table tennis or on the volleyball court – all complimentary. Complimentary water sports are provided on Guana – small boat sailing, hobie cats, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking. Snorkel gear is also provided free of charge. Fishing, Sunset Cruises, Kite-Surfing, SNUBA and SCUBA diving, Castaway Picnics and trips to other islands can be arranged for an additional charge. Complimentary internet access is available throughout the island.
Jack, Jill and Jeremey – the Guana Island donkeys always enjoy visits from guests, particularly if you come bearing banana leaves! Just pop into Guana’s orchard on the way and Jamal or one of his friendly team will be happy to prepare some for you. You may also be lucky enough to have a glimpse of Guana’s pink flamingoes.
After dinner you can enjoy a movie evening in the beautiful Garden of Eden on Guana Island complete with wine and popcorn! Just let the Guana team know what your favourite film is and they will do the rest.
