Overview

Private island resort with an award-winning spa and a fully equipped dive shop and marina, plus two private beaches

The Look

Just a short hop across the harbor from Tortola’s Beef Island airport, Scrub Island Resort is a 52-room getaway where guests can make like Robinson Crusoe on an island all to themselves. After arriving via private launch, it’s easy to slip into island time thanks to a lounger lined beach and pool overlooking the marina, which offers a long list of free water activities. Kick off your trip with a visit to the hillside Ixora Spa and opt for an “Island Dream” massage (which incorporates fresh aloe from the island) in an open-air treatment room overlooking the Caribbean.

Bed and Bath

Rooms and suites are furnished in an understated style that befits the West Indies. The guest rooms have bamboo ceiling fans, teak furniture and private patios or balconies, while suites include kitchens with Subzero and Wolf appliances and granite countertops. All bathrooms include separate showers and tubs. And no matter where you stand in the public spaces or in your room, you’ll have a view of the harbor — even in the shower, courtesy of a tiny window carved out of the tile.

Beyond

Of the resort’s two restaurants, Cardamom & Co. is more upscale, with a menu that tells the story of the spice trade and its impact on the diversity of cultures and flavors found throughout the Caribbean. The other choice on the property is Donovan’s Reef Marina Bar & Grill, an open-air eatery serving local fare (jerked chicken wings; coconut rum grouper) and popular Caribbean favorites. In the mood for a tropical cocktail? Visit One Shoe Beach Bar for drinks right on secluded North Beach. The island’s Marina Village includes Antilia boutique where guests can pick up swimsuits, flip-flops, and other resort wear, as well as Gourmet Market & Cafe for provisions, plus a 24/7 fitness center.

Enjoyed our stay here. Stayed in the Governor’s suite which was excellent. People were all very friendly and helpful. Ali at reception was great. We enjoyed the pool, the beach and the pig roast held each Wednesday night. We will return,

Beautiful property. Love the pools, but people with/without passes overran the lower pool making it difficult for paying guests to find their place in the sun. For the price, would not recommend if you’re looking for exclusivity. Staff needs to do a better job of monitoring pay guests vs locals.
