Posted by Scrub Island, November 2013

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS – Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, the newest luxury private-island resort in the British Virgin Islands, is offering residents of Puerto Rico exclusive discounted rates for the Thanksgiving holiday. Ideal for a tropical Thanksgiving family getaway, the rates include a luxurious ocean view guestroom for $295* per night, or an upgrade to a one-bedroom suite with gourmet kitchen for just $395* per night. Guestrooms and suites all feature traditional Caribbean décor and private patios offering marina and ocean views. For the ultimate in exclusivity and privacy, our striking collection of hillside villas are available starting at $1260 per night. The rates are valid for any stay that includes Thanksgiving Day (November 28).

Scrub Island Resort will also be serving a lavish Thanksgiving Day feast from 6 to 10 p.m. on November 28 at Caravela, the resort’s fine-dining restaurant overlooking the Caribbean. Executive Chef Davide Pugliese will add Caribbean flair to the traditional feast, featuring tropical caprese salad or traditional pumpkin soup; roast turkey breast or honey baked ham; mashed potatoes, sage stuffing, green beans and cranberry-orange relish or pesto crusted grouper, polenta cake and green beans; and pumpkin pie or pecan pie for dessert. Guests can enjoy this holiday feast for $50 per person.

With its gorgeous setting and average November air and water temperatures of 78 to 82F, Scrub Island is likely to inspire Thanksgiving traditions beyond Black Friday shopping sprees or naps in front of televised parades and football games. Guests can float in their private plunge pool and take in the views and easterly trade winds from their villa terrace, lounge by the resort’s four-tiered infinity pool with a Caribbean cocktail from the swim-up bar, or get pampered with a pumpkin body scrub or face mask special at the Ixora Spa. To work off the turkey dinner, guests can hike the island’s winding trails, stroll beautiful private beaches, or drop by the marina to arrange kayaking, snorkeling, diving, fishing or sailing excursions in the surrounding crystal clear waters.
