The Times of London has published a very favorable article about holidays in the British Virgin Islands commenting that “Desert islands and drinks on deck: a new affordable sailing holiday to Virgin Gorda puts this famously luxe Caribbean nation within reach”.
Meanwhile The New York Times places the BVI as second best destination in the Caribbean.
Furthermore, Guana Island, the award-winning resort in the British Virgin Islands, is collaborating with renowned California wine brand, HALL Wines, to offer a three-day Spring Wine Program from May 5-7, 2020. The program will bring some of HALL’s most celebrated vintages as well as its Director of Winemaking, Megan Gunderson, to Guana for a dynamic program for travelers and food- and wine-lovers alike.
Chef Mendoza will be creating new menus for the program, pulling as many ingredients as possible from the Guana Island orchard, including fresh herbs, fruits, vegetables and microgreens. The four-acre orchard has been recently expanded to include three new greenhouses and is home to tropical fruits such as breadfruit, soursop, and papaya as well as more exotic items such as lemongrass and pomegranate. The culinary team also sources fresh fish from the waters surrounding Guana, including grouper, yellowfin tuna and mahi-mahi.
Caribbean Journal is confirming that the British Virgin Islands is seeing a major tourism rebound so far this year, according to the latest data from the Caribbean Tourism Organization. The British Virgin Islands reported 172,776 stayover tourist arrivals in the first half of 2019, representing a 93.5 percent increase over the same period in 2018. That amounts to a strong recovery for the destination in the last two years since the impacts of Hurricanes Irma and Maria on the BVI.
