Big resorts and hotels have their places, but there’s nothing like an island boutique property. One of the better examples of that is Biras Creek Resort, an exclusive 31-room luxury property in the British Virgin Islands.
Beginning May 1, guests can book one of the all-inclusive deals for an opportunity to explore the local culture and tropical surroundings of Virgin Gorda, which some refer to as the “Billionaire’s Playground,” including the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
In addition, throughout the month of August, the resort will be offering several new activities designed specifically for families, welcoming kids of all ages. The property typically does not allow children under the age of 6.
Biras Creek (ww.biras.com) features newly renovated one and two bedroom suites, each with its own private verandah overlooking the Caribbean Sea or naturally landscaped gardens. Accessible only by boat or helicopter, the property is located on a strip of land nestled between two lush hills and surrounded by the protected lagoon of the North Sound, the open Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The all-inclusive resort features a private white sand beach, along with numerous outdoor activities including complimentary motorized Boston Whalers, Hobie Cats, snorkeling, hiking, paddle boarding and biking.
Here’s a look at the packages:
