British Virgin Islands
Scrub Island Story More than five years ago, Joe Collier of Mainsail Hotels visited Donovan's Reef Restaurant on remote Scrub Island while on vacation. During a long evening of good conversation, food and camaraderie with the family who owned and operated the restaurant, the vision to build an exclusive luxury resort and spa on the unspoiled 230-acre tropical paradise took shape.
After more than a decade of planning, Mainsail Development Group, in conjunction with Scrub Island Development Group, LLC, broke ground in October 2005 on a $70 million resort development to include a boutique hotel, soothing spa, 65-slip marina and luxurious residences. The resort,
known as Mainsail Resort Marina & Spa, has a scheduled completion date of late 2007.
Careful to protect the natural beauty of the island which
inspired them, the developers are making painstaking efforts to preserve the surroundings that make the island so special. This is the first new resort development in the British Virgin Islands in more than 15 years.
