2. OIL NUT BAY, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
On the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, the group’s thirdlargest island, the hotel retains a sense of exclusivity: you can only reach it by boat or helicopter from Tortola. After Irma’s passage, 200 contractors worked to get the resort open again, adding extra Marina
Villas – two-bedroom spaces with suspended pools – and Bay Suites, from where you get direct access to the beach club. Full island relaxation comes with hammocks stretched over the water, while a restaurant, deli, coffee shop and library make their debut before the end of the year.
Rooms from £590 (oilnutbay.com)
