Guana Island

British Virgin Islands
850 acres, 35 guests, 7 beaches

Imagine the Caribbean before it went public

One of the few private islands in its part of the world, Guana remains the most unspoiled jewel of the British Virgin Islands. Our 850 acres, seven beaches, mountains, gardens, organic orchard, dozens of hiking trails, and even our flock of flamingos are the exclusive domain of a handful of guests for the duration of their stay. There is no public bar, marina, or any other commercial facility on the Island. Guana's understated elegance and absolute privacy (only registered guests are permitted) have made it a hideaway retreat for a century's worth of luminaries from the worlds of art, literature, politics, and industry.

White Bay Beach

White Bay Beach, often cited as the BVI's finest beach, is a half-mile expanse of powder-white sand. Six other pristine beaches provide even greater privacy. Snorkeling opportunities abound, especially at Guana's northern tip, which is a Protected Fisheries Area.
Guana's luxury boutique hotel, established in 1934, is built of native stone and coral, on the foundations of an 18th century Quaker estate. Sprinkled along a scenic ridge and cooled by gentle trade winds, each of our 18 unique rooms and villas offers commanding views of the Caribbean and the Atlantic.
Guana's internationally trained chefs create exquisite, farm-to-table cuisine, bolstered by produce from our own organic orchard, and breads and muffins from our ovens. All meals and wines, as well as snacks like tropical fruit and fresh-baked cookies, are included.
Activities and Spa
A fleet of beach toys like stand-up paddle boards, paddle boats, kayaks, Sunfish & Hobie-Cat, snorkeling gear, and tennis equipment, stand at the ready. Further adventures include water skiing, kitesurfing, local and deep-sea fishing, wake-boarding, and scuba.

For those who prefer something less strenuous, our intimate Hibiscus Spa provides massages and beauty treatments at the water's edge.

Getting here

It's easy to get to the Island that's like no place on earth.
From the US or Europe, fly by commercial airline into Tortola's Beef Island Airport (EIS) via San Juan, St. Thomas, or Antigua. Or fly privately or by charter. Our boatmen will be waiting for you with a smile, and then it's just minutes in our launch to Guana's White Bay.
As we hope you'll soon find out for yourself, the only difficult part about a trip to Guana is leaving it.
