Nail Bay Resort
We booked the Sundowner villa for our honeymoon as it sounded very romantic. I had read reviews and seen pictures, but when we arrived to the villa we were absolutely blown away. It was so gorgeous that we could hardly believe it. And to top it all, there was love songs playing in the radio on arrival =)
The villa is luxuriously furnished and there is everything you could possibly need from every kind of kitchen appliance to washer and dryer and everything in between. It is kept in tip top condition by the excellent housekeeper, Cordell, who can apparently make what ever animal he wants from the plentiful fluffy towels. There is an outdoor shower, which I was quite worried about before our arrival, but I shouldn't have been. It is private, was not infested with scary bugs and had very good water pressure.
But the highlight of the villa must be the patio, which overlooks the turquoise sea and is very private. There is plenty of nice furniture and your own small pool with a fountain. The patio is incredibly romantic at night with beautiful lighting. We don't usually ever cook ourselves on holiday, but we absolutely loved to stay in our villa at nights to barbecue enjoying the sounds of the sea and the love songs from the radio. I wish I was still there...
The road to Nailbay was in a bad condition, but manageable so don't let this scare you. And they are paving the road so it should get better. The restaurant at the Nailbay resort, The Sugar Cane, is very nice and surprisingly moderately priced. Definitely a good option if you don't feel like driving to get dinner or cooking yourself.
This is the most special place we have ever been to and a place where we will definately return one day. In a one word, it is perfect.
Far & away down a rutted dirt road
Located on the site of a former 19th century sugar mill plantation, this full service resort offering the usual span of resort activites plus tennis courts, bocce court, & croquet lawn. Accommodations from studio & 1 bedroom hotel rooms to villas of all sizes from studio to 5 bedroom villas with private pool. Again, rates vary according to size of room & season, so see website below.
This is a more expensive resort than Mango Bay, the cheapest room in low season is $155 a night, plus the usual 7% BVI Government Tax and 10% Service Charge added on to that.
Unique Quality: Swimming & snorkeling are great if the winds & currents permit,but their beaches are much more exposed to the elements than Little Dix Bay. I don't see the range of freebies included on their website that Mango Bay or Little Dix Bay provide (like snorkeling equipment, kayaks & little sunfish sailboats), only an offer to hook you up for day trips. Offhand, this was a very isolated resort that looked to me like it was pretty spendy for the value received, but maybe that's just because the drive was dirty & exhausting.
The views, though wonderful, are no better than Mango Bay's superb views.
Directions: Out North Sound Road past Savannah Beach & the Salt Pond, turn left at the group of signs (see photo attached), and drive FAR down a rutted dirt road. By boat = better!!!
