British Virgin Islands Luxury Resort Cultivates One-of-a-Kind Partnerships for Guests' Benefit

From Sailing Packages, to Honeymoons, to Local Charities, Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina Has a Partnership for Everything

SCRUB ISLAND, VIRGIN ISLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 04/14/14 -- Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina may be new, but it's already making waves in its community and beyond. Since opening in 2010, the private-island resort has offered guests a sumptuous taste of Caribbean living with secluded beaches, world-class dining and some of the most beautiful private villas in the Virgin Islands. Having demonstrated its impressive aptitude for hospitality then, it's no wonder that this luxury hotel in the British Virgin Islands has taken things to the next level, cultivating three distinct partnerships that enhance the guest experience and redefine what it means to travel to the BVI.

The resort's first collaboration with HoneymoonWishes is a nod to the happy situation many guests of this BVI private-island resort find themselves in. Designed to offer newlyweds a more practical and rewarding approach to their wedding registries, HoneymoonWishes lets couples register for experiences and services during their honeymoon rather than china and linen for their home. So friends and family can, for example, gift the couple with massages at the resort's award-winning Ixora Spa by L'OCCITANE, an upgrade to their suite or a Royal Swim Adventure with Dolphins instead of a new set of towels.

Of course, one of the features that makes this resort so popular among honeymooners is its crystalline waters, which also happen to make the area one of the best places for sailing. Accordingly, the property recently teamed up with the respected Colgate Offshore Sailing School to offer a variety of sailing packages. Whether beginners opt for the five-day Learn to Sail course, or experienced skippers want to try their hand at the Performance Sailing course, there's a package for everyone. A number of features are included with each package, including a diploma, graduation celebration and, in honor of Colgate's 50th anniversary, a $50 resort credit.

No matter which package one books, staying at Scrub Island Resort is the sort of experience that inspires the best in people. With that in mind, the property recently partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a program that invites travelers to donate five or more pounds of their luggage space to bringing needed donations for the communities they visit. Those arriving at Scrub Island can find online a complete list of requested items that the hotel's beneficiary, the BVI Autism Centre, desperately needs. The BVI Autism Centre works with children and adults who have disorders on the autism spectrum, helping them develop their cognitive, social and life skills. As the first property in the BVI to partner with Pack for a Purpose, this luxury resort provides a unique opportunity for guests to make a positive impact during their visit, and it serves as an example within the hospitality industry.

With so many ways to experience the best of island living, Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina offers something for everyone. And, in doing so, the resort is guiding the evolution of what it means to travel well.
