Guana Island

Guana Island, one of the most private hideaways in the Caribbean, is 850 acres of undisturbed natural beauty and one of the largest private islands in the British Virgin Islands. The 42 guest resort is its only occupant and the first resort built in the BVI’s which still retains a special authentic character. On arrival at Beef Island airport be prepared to be whisked away by boat to an unforgettable island retreat. With ample time to explore, enjoy over twenty hiking trails or the numerous sports and watersports on offer. If its relaxation you are looking for, take a short ride down the White Bay Beach, take a yoga lesson or book a massage in the comfort of your villa or in the outdoor spa.

The island has an abundance of natural life and there is a small museum with information on its history and wildlife (nothing dangerous!).

Rates include three meals a day, wines with lunch and dinner, snacks as well as use of the islands activities including kayaks, pedal boats, tennis and snorkeling.

A selection of accommodation options are available:

Sea View Cottage: The resorts guest rooms complete with private terrace with sweeping views of the Atlantic and Caribbean. All feature: private bathrooms with adobe style showers, ceiling fans, WiFi Internet access and hair dryers. Amenities include coffee machines, refrigerators, alarm clocks, sewing kits, hair dryers, irons and boards. Choose either king or twin beds.

Sea View Pool Cottage: All the amenities of a Sea View Cottage with the added luxury of a private pool.

North Beach Cottage: Truly a world of its own, the North Beach Villa is the only house on the Island’s stunning North Beach. Favoured for its beauty and seclusion, the villa’s living room, bedroom, and kitchen, are surrounded by scenic terraces. Nestled among leafy sea grape trees, the only sounds you’ll hear are the surf lapping the white sand at your doorstep, and the pelicans diving just off your seaside deck.

If you’d prefer a calmer swim, you’ll find your own saltwater pool just steps from the ocean. And when you feel like company, hop in your golf cart and take the winding trail past a Quaker stone wall, the Island’s Orchard and the Flamingo Pond, to the main beach and tennis courts. Meals are served at the Club, but arrangements can be made to dine alone at North Beach.

Pool and Beach

  • White Bay Beach is “arguably the finest beach in the BVI,” according to Caribbean Travel & Life. It is the half-mile stretch of pure white coral sand that most of the guests use every day. There are times, however, you’ll want to be alone. Really alone. Fortunately, there are six more beaches, some so secluded they are accessible only by boat, on any of which can be arranged along with a very private picnic.
