Your First Look at Virgin Voyages' Private Island
Virgin Voyages revealed on Thursday plans for Beach Club at Bimini, the private island oasis that will only be available to the cruise line's guests (or “sailors,” as Virgin calls them).
“A cornerstone of every voyage will be The Beach Club at Bimini, where sailors can feel the sand in their toes in a stylish setting with white-sand and crystal clear waters and programming that will rival the best beach clubs in Ibiza and Saint-Tropez,” Virgin Voyages said in a statement.
The island, designed with Miami-based architects EOA, Inc., features was built with natural materials and soft earth tones to help it seemlessly blend into the surrounding seascape. The club overlooks the ocean, but does come with its own expansive lagoon-style pool as its center.
On the island guests can spend the morning in a yoga and meditation class on the beach. Then, throughout the day the island will be overtaken with a more energetic vibe culminating in a DJ-led pool and flotilla parties. The day on the island will end with a beach bonfire paired with acoustic musical performances.
On the island, guests can also dig into complimentary dishes like conch and mango salad, banana leaf-wrapped queen snapper, and Bahamian rum cake. They can dine with friends, sit on beach loungers, or opt for a more private accommodations with both beach-side and poolside cabanas available for rent.
This stunning seven-mile island will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of Virgin Voyages' itineraries.
