Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina Partners with Waypoint Real Estate Consulting; Begins $12.5 Million in Capital Improvements

Posted by Scrub Island, July 2015

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS – Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina – the newest luxury private-island resort in the British Virgin Islands and one of Travel + Leisure’s 2015 500 World’s Best Hotels – has recently partnered with Waypoint Real Estate Consulting, a Florida-based agency specializing in the sales of resort real estate. The partnership is intended to increase awareness of the real estate offerings around the island and renewed momentum of villa development.

“Scrub Island Resort allows buyers to experience the dream of owning a home in the Caribbean without the inconvenience of building and maintaining one,” said James Miller, Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina managing director. “We believe Waypoint has the skill and experience needed to connect the resort with buyers eager to experience such an exclusive location.”

Along with several new villas, Scrub Island Resort’s capital improvement plan will encompass building and finishing roadways, increasing on-island transportation, and completely redeveloping the irrigation system while massively enhancing landscaping around the entire resort. A major upgrade and renovation of the resort pool was recently completed, along with the addition of a VIP sun deck and cabana on Pavilion Beach overlooking the marina.

The award-winning Ixora Spa was relocated to a villa in closer proximity to Marina Village and now offers treatments using Elemis products, a line that has pushed the boundaries of science to make breakthrough discoveries in the field of vitamins, minerals, marine and plant medicinal therapy. Guests of Ixora Spa enjoy an infinity plunge pool, three treatment rooms equipped to accommodate couples or single treatments and spectacular views of Beef Island, Marina Cay and Virgin Gorda.

“Selling Scrub Island is selling the lifestyle of ultimate luxury and exclusivity on a private island, while still offering all the amenities of a resort including world-class restaurant outlets, award-winning spa, private beaches and a 55-slip marina,” said Myles Newell, principal of Waypoint Real Estate Consulting. “We look forward to exposing our clients interested in luxury private-island living to the two-bedroom suites and two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom villas available.”
