Peter Island is a lovely resort and spa situated on its own private island in the British Virgin Islands. To me these islands are the most romantic and beautiful in the Caribbean – very lush green and mountainous – warm calm blue/green water – warm breezes, great sandy beaches and within view of many small islands whose distant lights at night, along with the moon and stars, add to the sensual feeling.
The small resort (32 oceanview suites - 20 beachfront suites and 3 hilltop villas) prides itself on luxury and service……..and the staff is extremely friendly, professional and well trained. The clientele is mainly young, affluent Americans, many celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary and the villas appeal to families. Although children over 8 years of age are accepted, there are no planned activities for them. It is a quiet resort – guests are friendly but keep to themselves – no beach games are planned, no loud music and no TV’s in the rooms.
The suites are in two story buildings featuring four units each. The Oceanview Suites are located near the pool, lobby area and Tradewinds Restaurant and Bar, while the beachfront Suites are in five buildings adjacent to Deadman’s Beach. Although close together, they do offer quite a bit of privacy. Hammocks are scattered along the beach and lawns near the pool and suites.
Three meals are included in your rate plus afternoon tea. Alcoholic drinks and wines are not included although the water, soda, juice and beer that is stocked in your room are complimentary and are restocked daily – if you order an additional restocking of your minibar you will be charged. The food is very good – I have reviewed the restaurants and beaches in separate write-ups.
The only entertainment that I’m aware of is the Beach Party held weekly at Deadman’s Beach – but since occupancy was low during our stay this event was cancelled. It’s a totally relaxing resort that is quite peaceful but it will not appeal to guests that are looking for planned activities and nightly entertainment.
Since there is a marina on the island, boaters do come to spend a day or two or probably just to enjoy lunch and a day at the beach or for an evening of cocktails and dinner. The gift shop is well stocked with clothing, sundries, food items, liquor, gifts, jewelry and local crafts.
We highly recommend Peter Island for a quick romantic getaway or as a relaxing few days for relief from stressful work. It's bound to be a memorable vacation.
