Have you experienced the beauty of the Virgin Islands before? Well, if you aren’t familiar with them, they are a group of islands in the Caribbean Sea. There are the US Virgin Islands and also, the British VI’s. However, rather than turn this post into a geography lesson, let’s jet straight to Virgin Gorda, a British territory in the Caribbean Sea and settle in on Saba Rock Island Resort.
This beautiful resort sits in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda off the coast on it’s own private island.
A little additional history and background on the resort from their website reads, “Saba Rock Resort, as it exists today, opened its doors for business in May 1999. The resort was designed by BVI architect Paul Wattley, who worked in conjunction with local craftsmen on the 2 year construction project. Prior to that, the island was owned for over 30 years by BVI diving legend and treasure hunter, Bert Kilbride. Bert was appointed the BVI Receiver of Wrecks by Queen Elizabeth II.
The North Sound, Virgin Gorda consists of a small cluster of islands and resorts: Prickly Pear Island, Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island and Moskito Island, Eustatia Island, Bitter End Yacht Club and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS).
The North Sound plays host to a diverse range of water-sports, including mega yacht regattas hosted by YCCS, One Design sailing regattas, kiteboarding, SCUBA diving, stand up paddle boarding and amazing snorkeling. It is also home to some of the very best beaches in the Caribbean.”
Even Martha Stewart Magazine has touted them as having the, “most stylish rooms in the BVI.”
While I haven’t had the pleasure of staying here yet, I was lucky enough to view it from a sailboat once and knew this resort had to find a place on my bucket list of resorts to visit.
Saba Rock has all the features you could ever want; sun, sand, that gorgeous water and even rooms to make the interior designer in all of us squeal with delight. I’m ready to go! Are you?
