A group of friends and I are planning a trip to the Virgin Gorda. I'd like to stay somewhere with a view that has some local flavors. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I know of a few places. Little Dix Bay has breathtaking ocean views, palm trees and the ocean breeze. I'm relaxed just thinking about it.. Aquamare Villas is comprised of three villas and is a great spot for relaxation. Each of these beachfront villas one have three master bedrooms.
Katitche Point Greathouse is famed for it's horizen edge pool that looks like it runs right into the ocean. So cool and so relaxing. I don't even need to mention the beautiful suites or amazing tropical garden right outside your door.
Bitter End Yacht Club is one of the world's best resorts, the Bitter End Yacht Club is such a fun vacation spot for water lovers. Try snorkling, sailing or fishing. If there are any kids in your group, there are plenty of fun activities for them, too!
If you want a place that also is a very private resort with a great restaurant, Biras Creek Resort four-course prix fixe menu features European and Caribbean dishes, like braised lamb shank and grilled mahi, and boasts one of the area’s best wine lists. Plan ahead, as the resort is accessed only by boat or helicopter, both surprisingly less expensive than you’d think. Since it's only reachable by boat, this resort is the epitome of privacy. Every guest is given a bike for their duration of their stay. A perfect way to enjoy the island.
Mentioned in this answer:
Bitter End Yacht Club is amazing (and has a really great story which you can read here: http://www.beyc.com/index.php/beyc-history )... It's not cheap, though. It has a view of Saba Rock, a tiny island right in front. Speaking of Saba Rock, you could also check
Saba Rock Resort (http://www.sabarock.com/ ) - it only has 8 rooms but it's a touch cheaper and might be cool to rent out the whole thing if your group is large enough.
Obviously, the best way to enjoy BVI is on a boat. Skippered charters on sailboats can be pretty cost effective if you've got the right # of people for 4 staterooms.
