Hotels in British Virgin Islands

With such a picture-perfect location, it would seem like hotels in the British Virgin Islands need to do little except offer you a window to enjoy the view, but with spas, great restaurants, live entertainment and ocean activities (sailing, fishing, surfing), they go out of their way to be excellent hosts for your BVI vacations.

Right by the beach, Anegada Reef Hotel is a laid-back, family-run hotel where the 20 rooms have relaxing views of the ocean or the garden. At the Garden Restaurant, enjoy an outdoor meal of lobster, baby back ribs and their house specialty, the Rum Smoothie.

Over at Virgin Gorda, the Bitter End Yacht Club is one of the most relaxing hotels in the British Virgin Islands. With gorgeous ocean-view suites and beachfront cottages (with hammocks in the deck), you may not want to leave your room, but make sure you pay a visit to their Sailing School, or test your skills at kite boarding, snorkeling or windsurfing. Reward yourself with a meal of fresh-caught fish at the Clubhouse Steak & Seafood Grille.

When Laurance Rockefeller founded Little Dix Bay in 1964 as a haven for well-to-do travelers, he had the foresight to choose an island that would dodge the wrath of rampant development, which has spoiled so many pristine Caribbean locales.

A modest 17-room property that often schedules soca music during cocktail hour.

Owned by longtime food and travel writers Jefferson and Jinx Morgan since 1982, the Sugar Mill Hotel is one of Tortola’s best hotels.

Head to the outdoor bar for Wreck punch, made with rum—and bartender Alex Warren won’t tell you what else.

Once a pit stop for European explorers, the 230-acre island has been virtually uninhabited for decades—until this luxe property opened its doors. Accessible only by ferry (a 10 -minute ride from Tortola), the 52-room resort is the only destination on the entire island—and it has plenty to offer.
