BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (Feb 13, 2019) – Mainsail Lodging & Development is delighted to announce the recapitalization and reopening of Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in the British Virgin Islands. On Dec. 31, 2018, The Ardent Companies, through a $41 million investment, replaced First Bank of Puerto Rico as principal lender. Mainsail Lodging & Development will continue to operate the resort under Autograph Collection® Hotels, a member of Marriott International’s industry-leading portfolio.
“This marks an extraordinary milestone in the history of our resort,” said Joe Collier, president of Mainsail Lodging & Development. “Scrub Island has been our passion project for well over a decade, and this strategic alliance ensures our guests will receive the amenities and service befitting a boutique private island resort.”
As a part of the relaunch, many improvements have been completed in the hotel’s 52 rooms and suites, as well as the collection of 10 villas, ranging from two- to six-bedroom floor plans. Resort dining options were rebranded featuring fresh concepts at the newly named Donovan’s Reef Marina Bar & Grill and Scrub Island’s signature dinner restaurant, Cardamom & Co.
Returned to its original location perched above Marina Village, Ixora Spa offers multiple treatment rooms, a private pool and a new yoga deck with spectacular views of Sir Francis Drake Channel.
Boating enthusiasts will appreciate the fully renovated 55-slip marina with brand new pedestals, providing access to power and water, as well as new lighting, including underwater illumination. Announced earlier this year, Dream Yacht Charter, the world’s leading charter company, has relocated their base of operations in the British Virgin Islands to the resort’s marina, while both Offshore Sailing School and Dive BVI offer certification classes and exciting excursions throughout the destination.
Guests can also enjoy the resort’s 24-hour fitness room; a newly upgraded Wi-Fi network that offers the fastest service with coverage throughout the resort; Donovan’s Beach with water sports and newly resurfaced multi-tiered infinity pool and pool bar; and the recently expanded North Beach, which provides the ultimate in privacy.
Always an exclusive getaway, Scrub Island Resort offers private-island luxury now more than ever, with crystal-clear water, pristine beaches and crowd-free vacationing. For reservations visit www.ScrubIsland.com.
