British Virgin Islands

Biras Creek Resort, Virgin Gorda

Set on a 140-acre peninsula, this stone resort is accessible only by boat or helicopter, and “it gets a lot of honeymooners.” Rooms with private garden showers have a white-and-turquoise color scheme, Caribbean artwork, and verandas with sea views. Splurge on the master suite, which has “a plunge pool, a great living room, and two decks right on the ocean.” The candlelit dinner at Hilltop comes with “a fabulous view” of the North Sound—“the food is outstanding, but you have to climb to the top of the resort to get it.” The signature Island Cooler treatment at the spa incorporates a salt scrub, just-picked aloe, and a body wrap and massage. “I pray that I get a chance to return someday.”
