WHO: British Virgins Island Government and Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina

WHAT: Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina is pleased to share the recent announcement regarding the new, relaxed protocols for vaccinated travelers to the British Virgin Islands. Effective May 15, vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to submit to a COVID-19 PCR test on Day 4 of their visit.  An arrival PCR test will still be administered upon arrival; however, once the negative results are confirmed – usually within 24-48 hours – guests will enjoy unlimited access to both the resort and territory.

“This is a significant change for our vaccinated travelers,” stated resort General Manager Michael Schoonewagen.  “Our vaccinated guests will be able to book excursions to visit The Baths, iconic diving spots and all the neighboring islands without the worry of having to receive a second test.”

Visitors are still required to show proof of a negative PCR test five days prior to arrival.

More information on the new protocols is available here.

WHEN: Effective Saturday, May 15, 2021

WHERE: Situated on its own private island in the British Virgin Islands, the AAA Four-Diamond Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina is tucked along a rugged cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and neighboring islands. The resort has offered a serene haven for travelers since opening in 2010, providing exceptional on-island experiences and an ideal location for island-hopping exploration of the best of the BVI. The resort offers several overnight options for guests and sailing vessels, with 52 guest accommodations, including suites with gourmet kitchens, spacious living areas and private/oversized balconies, as well as a collection of two-, three-, four- and six-bedroom villas, and a 55-slip marina with five for mega yachts up to 170 feet. Two private beaches, a waterfront infinity pool, an intimate spa, world-class dining, and on-site access to dive and sailing charters complete the overall experience on Scrub Island. A year-round tropical climate, balmy breezes and crystal-clear waters are the perfect setting to enjoy other island adventures, such as hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling and more. An on-site boutique with high-end resort wear and accessories, sundries shop with grab & go options, and full-service provisions store with gourmet foods, fresh produce, meats, seafood, beer, wine, spirits and more are all available to resort and mooring guests.
