Back in 2017, Hurricane Irma delivered mass destruction to parts of the Caribbean, with the British Virgin Islands seeing a lot of damage themselves. Unfortunately, the popular Bitter End Yacht Club was unable to reopen right away due to the extensive damage to the resort facilities. However, there is some exciting news as the resort is not only set to reopen this coming winter, but it has added overwater bungalows to its room list.

These new overwater rooms, named Marina Lofts, will be the only overwater bungalows in the British Virgin Islands. In addition the new Marina Lofts, the resort will also stun guests with 2 two-story waterfront bungalows. For more information about this exciting new development and what to expect once the resort re-opens, continue reading below.

Overwater villa amenities and features

Due to the fact that this particular resort is only accessible by boat, the resort is already deemed a novelty. To make things even more interesting, the resort will now offer overwater bungalows that direct themselves out into the sea, making for wonderful views straight from your bed. The rooms are designed with 2 different levels, with a daybed on the first floor and a king sized bed on the second floor.



You’ll also notice how both levels have a private deck added on. This creates a nice indoor/outdoor space that connects, allowing for a nice breeze to flow through both levels. Guests can also easily tie up a kayak to the lower level deck, making for easy access into and out of the water.

Resort activities and things to do

Due to everything the resort offers to do and see, you’ll find that you won’t feel the need to venture offsite for food or relaxation. In fact, the resort offers a total of 5 differently styled restaurants, ranging from a pizza and wine diner to a beach bar made out of a sunken vessel that was reclaimed after being damaged by the hurricane. If you rather get something to take back to your room, you’ll find lots to choose from at the Bitter End Market.



Aside from relaxing and enjoying the views, guests will also have the option to partake in watersport activities. Here you’ll find kiteboarding, sailboats with both group and private instruction, kayaking, paddle boarding, and Hobi Waves.

  1. Looking at Bora Bora.
    Looking to escape an Iowa winter in 2022. Like Intercontinental, so far.
    Any suggestions?

    1. Amy,

      Literally all of the Bora Bora resorts are fantastic. My advice is to choose the best one that you can afford, or the one that seems to be offering the best deals at the time you are ready to book. The InterContinental chain is top notch. I can’t afford the Four Seasons either. -Roger
