The project has featured significant upgrades to each of its 31 private guest suites, along with enhancements to Hilltop Restaurant, the picturesque outdoor pool and arrival dock area. The major construction is completed as the travel season heats up at Virgin Gorda which has been called by many seasoned travelers as an unspoiled, romantic travel destination which features some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. In addition, the cozy guest rooms feature striking artwork which display various images of the British Virgin Islands and lighten up the comfortable living and bedroom spaces.
Just received a message on Facebook concerning Biras Creek. How sad for the island and the workers. It will be interesting to watch the impact the re opening of Cuba to US citizens in the not too distant future is going to have on the rest of the Caribbean.
Travel over peak periods e. Christmas, New Year and other public holidays can affect prices considerably, as can exchange rates, flight class and room type. Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination.
Tucked into a narrow slip of land separating the Atlantic and the lapping Caribbean Sea, Biras Creek Resort enjoys an enviable position among luxury retreats in these parts. Accessible only by boat or private helicopter, this grande dame of British Virgin Island hideaways manages to feel both exclusive and decidedly down to earth, forgoing flash for a more understated elegance. A smattering of 31 suites punctuate the manicured trails that weave throughout the grounds, with all paths leading to an open-air dining and relaxation pavilion crowning the high point of the property.
Because it is easy to lose an entire day travelling to the islands in the BVI, we had flown into St. Thomas the previous day, spent the night and chartered our own flight to the Virgin Gorda Airport. Seeing as the commercial airlines serving the BVI, Cape Air and Air Sunshine, are not presently allowed to land at Virgin Gorda Airport due to some zoning restriction, the charter flight was a stroke of genius.
Biras Creek is the resort and mooring field located in the northeast corner of the North Sound. It's a more secluded mooring spot compared to The Bitter End or Saba Rock and it's very well protected by hills and mangroves. In fact, Biras Creek is a designated hurricane shelter area — just to give you a sense of how well it's protected.
The only obstacle for charter yachts going into the marina is Oyster Rock, which is on the south side, less than half a mile from the Biras Creek Resort. The rock is marked with a red buoy, so keep the buoy to starboard when entering. Continue eastwards towards the marina slips and drop the hook in feet or tie up to one of the 18 mooring balls at the marina.
We had dinner with a group of our friends. The restaurant had come highly recommended. Our experience was such a disappointment. The service was horrible and the food wasn't much better.
The Biras Creek Resort is a rustic-luxe retreat with just 31 suites. It features two beaches -- one calm, looking out to the North Sound, and the other slightly rocky. Most suites do not have TVs and standard suites are a bit datedbut guests get access to free Wi-Fi and bicycles, as well as a long list of on-site amenities: tons of water sports, tennis courts, an attractive pool, a game room, an on-site restaurant which has a dress code for dinnerand a tiny fitness center.
