Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina – Caribbean Escape

The Scrub Island Resort, situated on a 230-acre private island in the British Virgin Islands, will become the first Caribbean luxury hotel to join the Marriott’s Autograph Collection.

The Autograph Collection, launched last year, is a group of stunning independent hotels hand-picked for their character and uniqueness. The Collection currently includes 20 properties across the USA and Europe but should compromise of more then double than number by the end of next year.

“The Scrub Island Resort is perfect for the Autograph Collection because it is a one-of-a-kind, independently operated property that can retain its personality, while benefitting from our powerful sales engine and economies of scale, which is important in these competitive times,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief development officer for Marriott International in the Caribbean and Latin America. “We are excited about the opportunity to reveal this exclusive resort in the Caribbean, for the rest of the world to also enjoy.”

The Scrub Island Resort opened its doors in mid-2010 and is the first private island resort to open in the BVI in the more than 15 years. The resort features 67 carefully designed guest rooms, a 60-slip marina, a gourmet market and retail outlet, a multi-level pool, a fitness center and spa. The setting of the Scrub Island Resort is a destination on its own with 3 secluded white sand beaches and several hiking trails for nature lovers.

“Scrub Island Resort is an exciting addition to Autograph Collection, located in a premier Caribbean destination,” said Kip Vreeland, vice president for Autograph Collection. “As our first Caribbean resort in the exclusive Retreat category, we are confident that our Autograph Collection guests will embrace this unique resort as the newest member of our portfolio.”

“We are pleased to be part of the Marriott International reservations engine and to promote our beautiful resort to a wider audience,” says Joe Collier, founder and president of Mainsail, which will continue to operate the resort.
