At Scrub Island, we continue to innovate and test new methods to ensure your safety is our top priority. Afterall, what’s paradise without being able to leave your worries at home?

While exploring our resort amenities, Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina requires all guests and associates to wear a face covering while adhering to social distancing guidelines.

We are maximizing existing technology and introducing the electrostatic sprayer in our welcome pavilion, dining outlets and meeting spaces to rise to the challenges of today’s pandemic environment. Electrostatic sprayers are used in multiple industries to apply a wide range of chemicals more effectively to surfaces, by applying an electrical charge to disinfectant solution. This electrical charge enables the disinfectant to reach, wrap around and cling to hard surfaces like a magnet. This method is employed in healthcare settings and its use is consistent with our commitment to introducing hospital-grade disinfecting products and technology, where appropriate.

Every guest room, suite and villa is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to your arrival. For guests staying with us five (5) days or longer, housekeeping service can be done on the third day. For stays ten (10) days or more, service can be done every three days. In-room amenities, toiletries and room service can be delivered to your door upon request.

Rest assured our resort will be fully operational, including dining, boutique, as well as our beaches and pools. Our team is ready and waiting for you! Should you have any other questions, please contact us at [email protected], or call us toll-free at (877) 890-7444.
