Laid-back colonial-style Tortola resort with a restaurant and beachside bar on a milelong stretch of sand
Just 30 rooms make up this laid-back colonial-style Tortola resort, which fronts Long Bay Beach’s powder-white sand. At 360 square feet, the Deluxe Rooms have a beachy aesthetic (whitewashed walls, aquamarine private balconies) and are just yards from the ocean. Settle in for breakfast, lunch and dinner (buffet during the day, à la carte at night) at the 1748 restaurant (the beachside bar and grill is set in an 18th-century sugar refinery), or swing by the 5:30 p.m. happy hour for papaya daiquiris and Long Bay Coolers.
In the Area
Pirates, including Bluebeard and Captain Kidd, once used Tortola’s secluded coves to launch attacks on Spanish ships carrying treasure. Today visitors explore the same inlets and beaches on catamaran rides, snorkeling excursions and chartered fishing trips. Ask the hotel to book a full-day sail to nearby Jost Van Dyke (the BVI’s smallest island, just three square miles, and home to the famed Soggy Dollar Bar), or set off on a guided flat boat for some Caribbean fly fishing. Landlubbers should visit the Callwood rum distillery (the island’s oldest continuously operating pot distillery) for a taste of the spirit made from pure cane juice; or explore Fort Burt, a hilltop defense built by the English in 1776.
