Capturing the charisma, character and charm of the British Virgin Islands the Peter Island Resort rests on a private island blessed with five dramatic beaches, more than 20 secluded coves and the promise of pure personalization.
In 2001, the only retreat on the 1,800-acre island re-opened following an extensive renovation of its 52 rooms. Peter Island Resort blends a sense of provocative serenity and simplicity with Caribbean elegance. Edged by the expanses of the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Sir Francis Drake Channel and six breathtaking bays, the resort falls four miles south of Tortola and occupies the fifth largest of the loose array of 60 islands, cays and exposed reefs that comprise the British Virgin Islands.

Dining - Peter Island Resort
The Peter Island Resort offers the following restaurants:
Tradewinds - The resort's main dining option, veteran Chef Wilford "Willo" Stoutt crafts choice Caribbean and Asian fare into fresh, fusion cuisine matched only by the staggering view of Drake Channel and neighboring Tortola through large, waterfront windows. Next to the open-air dining area, a new wine room hosts private events and specialty dinners, and the Tradewinds pergola serves daily al fresco lunch. At sunset, musicians serenade guests with calypso or reggae. The resort features a new, seven-day rotating menu each season.
Deadman's Beach Bar and Grill - Camouflaged by sea grape trees, towering palms and a cedar shake roof. Offers a more casual menu for lunch and dinner just steps from the most dramatic beach in the Caribbean. Reef Bay burgers, coconut shrimp, and a salad and desert buffet highlight the open-air enclave.
Drake's Channel Lounge - With its tiled "island" bar, mosaic map of the island and shaded sitting area, offers a relaxed setting for sipping the resort's signature drinks, the Peter Island Landscape and Mango Smoothie. Guests "stranded" on the resort's most remote beach favor it.
White Bay Picnic Lunch - A gourmet feast with fine linens, china and flatware. Island staff deliver the basket directly to the beach and then remove it when summoned.
