I

f you have been having thoughts about where to go

to recharge your batteries, give the body a dose of

much needed vitamin D and most importantly, live

easy, sleep soundly and boast to your peers that there

is an idyllic corner of the Caribbean that understands

your need for the perfect break then I think we should

all be heading for Peter Island Resort & Spa in the

dreamy British Virgin Islands!

Getting to your Caribbean bolthole can sometimes have

an irksome twist but let us dispel your travelling concerns

- getting to the British Virgin Islands has never been easier

- there is a regular, through-ticketed flight with BA to

Antigua and then onwards to Beef Island, so that you can

arrive in time for dinner at Peter Island on the same day

you leave the UK! On your return you can leave Peter

Island after one last lunch in paradise to fly to Antigua to

connect with the BA non-stop flight to London.

But enough of the rigours of international travel, what

about the island itself! Without labouring the point the

first observation is that Peter Island is the quintessential

luxury private island resort with beautifully decorated

rooms and villas suitable for all ages offering incredible

snorkelling in the ever warm waters, terrain that suits

hiking and mountain biking, all the non-motorised

watersports you can think of, a fully kitted gym, tennis

and even a prestige yacht available for 1/2, full day,

sunset and overnight cruises. For the more committed

the island also boasts a 10,000

2

ft spa and the

opportunity to scuba dive with a former Navy Seal or

SBS diver and video photographer that used to work

with Jacques Cousteau. Zut alors...

However, what you will surely remember most about

the island resort are the incredibly friendly staff. For

example Jean Kelly, who has one of those memories

that allows her to recognise a returning guest who may

not have been to the resort in 20 years and, on sight,

recognises them as long lost friends. Perhaps one of

Jean’s most endearing characteristics is that she knows

when guests are leaving and will get up early to bake

them some cookies to eat on the way home. Also, the

destination is completely safe - no hawkers looking to

sell you wooden carvings! Finally, you will surely rave

about the incredible food created by Todd Howard, the

dashing young Executive Chef or the amazing cocktails

created by Captain, the head barman.
