BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS – Visitors to the website can now access an online module of the luxurious Ocean View Villas at Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, considered among the most lavish accommodations in the British Virgin Islands and unique within the prestigious Marriott and Marriott Autograph Collection® portfolios. Through colorful photography, videos and more, the new online module showcases the amenities, furnishings and breathtaking views available in six of the resort’s spacious villas. Designed as the ultimate private island escape, Scrub Island Resort and its Hillside Villas are ideal for exclusive weddings, family retreats and other special occasions.

Once on the Marriott’s site, visitors can easily navigate a gallery of photography to virtually explore the six villas, each with a private plunge pool and comfortable outdoor seating. Ranging from 3,000 to 6,000 square feet of living space, the villas are exquisitely appointed with local artwork, custom furnishings, king-size beds with luxury linens, natural stone flooring, bamboo ceiling fans and 42-inch flat panel televisions. Top-of-the-line Subzero®, Wolf® and Viking® appliances set the stage in full-gourmet kitchens opening onto spacious living rooms with large sliding windows that give sweeping, unobstructed views of the Caribbean. Bathrooms feature natural stone flooring, a granite-top twin-vanity, rainforest showerhead, water closet and roman tub. Villa guests also enjoy services such as daily housekeeping, transportation, and, on demand, a personal chef or butler.

Beyond the luxurious villa accommodations, Scrub Island Resort offers many distinctive experiences for events, such as a cliff-side wedding ceremony with a breathtaking view of neighboring islands; a family reunion event at the North Beach pool; or a gala event in the Columbus ballroom. The resort offers a variety of indoor and outdoor event space, including the largest ballroom in the British Virgin Islands, measuring 2,145 square feet which can be broken down into three smaller spaces for more intimate gatherings. Other popular event settings on island include the Candle Room, located in the resort’s signature fine-dining restaurant overlooking the surrounding waters; Marina Point, where magnificent yachts and sailboats serve as a backdrop; the pool at North Beach, with full food and beverage capabilities available for group functions; and others.

For vacation escapes, ocean view villa rates begin at $2,550 per night, with villas accommodating up to 10 guests.
