You’re stressed at work. You’re stressed at home. You’re stressed out by life in general. Take a deep breath and make for Virgin Gorda, where Mango Bay, a collection of comfortable, welcoming studios, one bedroom and two bedroom duplex villas, exists solely to help visitors slow down and unwind.
On the agenda for your stay at Mango Bay: tour the resort’s lush, perfectly manicured tropical gardens, then fall asleep to the sound of the sea gently lapping at the beach. The next morning, start the coffee percolating in your own private kitchen, then grab one of the resort’s complimentary kayaks, and explore Mahoe Bay’s vibrant double reef, whose swarming sea life puts on a show solely for your benefit. Kayaking sound like too much activity on this chill-out vacation of yours? No worries, just take up residence in the beachfront hammock and laze away the afternoon in the shade of sea grape trees. Or commandeer one of the resort’s complimentary floats and drift out into the bay.
As if Mango Bay’s comfy accommodations aren’t spectacular enough, the fabulously exquisite Aquamare, a collection of three 8,000-square-foot five-bedroom beachfront villas beckons from next door. These secluded villas, each with their own infinity pool, are so marvelous that actor Harrison Ford was the first guest when they were completed in 2008. Aquamare even provided a haven for Barbados-born beauty Rihanna on a recent vacation, and we figure Aquamare must be really special to have lured her away from her own picturesque home island.
Whether you choose Mango Bay or Aquamare, you’ll be greeted by Gino’s friendly smile and warm temperament. He’ll make you feel like a top-notch guest, while the property’s seclusion will have you feeling like the last person on earth. And sometimes, that’s just the kind of escape you need.
- For both ultimate seclusion and warm, placid waters, spring through early fall is the best time to visit.
- Mango Bay’s nicest accommodation, hands down, is the Beachfront Villa, whose wide, shaded porch, complete with comfy deck chairs and outdoor dining area, is situated right on the beach.
