Trip Report Peter Island Resort BVI

Jump to last reply

We recently returned from celebrating a special anniversary. Peter Island Resort, BVI is spectacular. It is as if everyone involved wants you to relax and enjoy yourself. We stayed in a Beachfront Jr. Suite. Spacious, with a beautiful view of Deadman and Little Deadman's Beaches, and our own balcony. 5 beaches are available. Read up on your choices and schedule what you want to do as soon as you arrive or even before you arrive. White Bay Beach has 6 huts you reserve, lunch will be delivered if ordered the day before. Honeymoon Beach is rocky and not to everyone's liking, but it is for just 2 people so that was cool. We also did a day snorkel with Patouche Charters, arranged by the folks at Peter Island. Travel up to Sunset Loop with your cheese and wine and watch the sunset.

We did not have any spa services but heard from several folks they were some of the best ever. We did participate in a Core class with a visiting traineer, Analise and her husband Nick. They are from Vancouver and were great! Analise spoke to each participant to make sure everyone worked out at their own comfort level. (Amazing how you can distract yourself with the gorgeous view!)

The people are what stand out most at this place. Every single staff person we interacted with was pleasant, smiling and only wanted to please. I overheard a few complainers that the staff handled flawlessly. Polite and only wanting the guest to be satisified. Monica, Denise and Marsha at the desk are on top of everything there! Mike, Colin and Nickie seemed to be the gentlemen that made sure we all got to anywhere we wanted to be! The Food and Beverage director, Rimple is an amazing asset to this place. He has an incredible knowledge of wine and food and hosts a wine dinner once a week which was terrific. Besides that is he is just plain fun. (My only "complaint" was he should do it 3 times a week as it was where we met some great, fun folks we would have liked to have spent more time with!) Raj and Claudette are top notch wait staff as is everyone there, including the famous Miss Jean. Susan on Deadman's Beach should become a familiar, smiling face as she will bring you food and cocktails all day long! Have her bring you the Peter Island Special!

We loved this place. Guests range in age, some folks return year after year. I probably would say it is best for couples, though I am sure they would accomodate children. We saw a few, but not sure if they were visiting from the boats or overnight guests.

The worst thing about Peter Island is seeing it disappear from site on your departing ferry!
