Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, the newest luxury private-island resort in the British Virgin Islands, has created a new “Thanksgiving’s on Us” package that blends the tropics and traditions into a unique, island escape. Starting at $979 per night, the package includes a seven-night stay for the price of five, luxury accommodations in a spacious two-bedroom ocean view villa, a bottle of wine and four seats at a lavish Thanksgiving Day feast at the resort’s fine-dining Caravela restaurant. The “Thanksgiving’s on Us” package is valid for any seven-night stay that includes Thanksgiving Day (November 28).
A stylish retreat for families to enjoy during their Thanksgiving getaway, Scrub Island Resort’s ocean view villas are nestled into the island’s hillsides and feature spacious living areas, gourmet kitchen, deluxe bedrooms with luxurious en suite bathrooms, private plunge pool or infinity edge pools and breathtaking views of the Caribbean and surrounding islands.
The Thanksgiving Day dinner will be served November 28 from 6 to 10 p.m. at Caravela, Scrub Island Resort’s elegant restaurant overlooking the Caribbean. Executive Chef Davide Pugliese will add Caribbean flair to the traditional feast, featuring tropical caprese salad or traditional pumpkin soup; roast turkey breast or honey baked ham; mashed potatoes, sage stuffing, green beans and cranberry-orange relish or pesto crusted grouper, polenta cake and green beans; and pumpkin pie or pecan pie for dessert.
With its gorgeous setting and average November air and water temperatures of 78 to 82 degrees F, Scrub Island is likely to inspire Thanksgiving traditions beyond Black Friday shopping sprees or naps in front of televised parades and football games. Guests can float in their private plunge pool and take in the views and easterly trade winds from their villa terrace, lounge by the resort’s four-tiered infinity pool with a Caribbean cocktail from the swim-up bar, or get pampered with a pumpkin body scrub or face mask special at the Ixora Spa. To work of the turkey dinner, guests can hike the island’s winding trails, stroll beautiful private beaches, or drop by the marina to arrange kayaking, snorkeling, diving, fishing or sailing excursions in the surrounding crystal clear waters.
