Peter Island was a destination we had dreamed to visit for many years. Choosing it for an 11 Day honeymoon was the best decision we have made as a newly married couple. We stayed in a Beachfront Junior Suite, 2nd floor. Views from the balcony over Deadman's Beach and Bay were fantastic, beach access was outside the door, and it was only a short 5-7 minute walk up and down a hill to the main lobby/Tradewinds restaurant, or 5-7 minutes the other way along the beach or road to Deadman's Bar and Grill. The room is very spacious, double shower with jacuzzi tub is luxurious, and the balcony right on the water is priceless. With very good AC and two fans, it never felt hot or stuffy, it was cool inside to balance the breezy warmth outside.
Food was phenomenal! We took part in the Vintner's Dinner twice! Thank you Robert Knock for the picking great wine pairings and information on wine. The Saturday Night Buffet is a highlight, don't miss it! The new emphasis on island grown ingredients and farm-to-table dining adds a delicious element to the already delectable menu. Some have mentioned the islands menu seems limited: yes the items are consistent except for some specials like fish of the day or a big shipment of Anegada Lobster. But, speaking as a foodie who was there for 11 days of meals: there are many great dishes offered that you will want to have your favorites a few more times and not feel disappointed.
The spa was beautiful and accommodating - check out the gardens. Plenty of services available as expected of a high-end spa, but no crowds and not at all stuffy or pretentious (true for the entire resort!).
One can be as active, or passive, as desired. With 11 days, we were able to get the best of both. We participated in: Sunset Loop Wine and Cheese, Manager's cocktail reception, island tour, full day sail on the Silmaril (THANK YOU JUDY and ROBIN!), day trip to Virgin Gorda on a catamaran, afternoon on Tortola, tea time, picnic lunch on White Bay beach, honeymoon beach, tour of the villas (awesome!) and three, 2-tank dives with Paradise Watersports (Thanks Randy!).
Peter Island exceeded our expectations, and we had high ones going in. The island is beautiful, snorkeling right off the beaches is great, and the dives nearby are even better.
The secret to Peter Island? The staff! They go out of their way to make your stay wonderful and to exceed your requests and expectations. A personal thank you to: Wilbert Mason GM whose professionalism and high standards lifts Peter Island into a class of its own; and of course Jean Kelly who represents the warmth and heart of Peter Island as a welcoming destination for people from around the world to share in a wonderful island experience that will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and alive.
