Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina Received Two World’s Best Awards from Travel + Leisure in 2014 and 2015
BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS – Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina – the newest luxury private-island resort in the British Virgin Islands – was named one of Travel + Leisure’s 500 World’s Best Hotels for 2015 and ranked eighth World’s Best Family Hotel in the Caribbean in 2014.
The rankings are determined from the results of a reader questionnaire developed by the editors of Travel + Leisure which judges hotels, cities, islands, airlines, tour companies, spas and more. Respondents evaluated hotels on five characteristics, rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value, rating each on a five-point scale of excellent, above average, average, below average and poor. Required component ratings were then averaged, creating an overall score.
Scrub Island Resort boasts 52 suites and a collection of two-, three- and four-bedroom villas featuring spacious floor plans, custom furnishings, natural stone, spectacular master suites, gourmet kitchens with Wolf and Subzero appliances, and breathtaking views of the Caribbean. Guests can also enjoy other amenities at the private island resort, including three pristine beaches, renowned restaurants and bars, a well-equipped health club, exciting excursions offered by the on-site dive shop, unlimited use of sea kayaks and stand up paddleboards, resort-wide Wi-Fi, resort ferry, on-island transportation and complimentary airport transfers from EIS/Beef Island Tortola.
