It is Saturday on Peter Island, day one of your glorious holiday, and the two of you are lazily swinging in hammocks suspended near the serene shores of the blue-green Caribbean.

Towering palm trees gently sway in the sea breezes and the sweet fragrances of hibiscus and lilies linger in the air. As you listen to the waves rhythmically caressing the beach, staff members at this private island hideaway in the British Virgin Islands refresh your cold drinks.

Named one of the “Best Places to Stay in the World” by Conde Nast Traveler, Peter Island Resort has only 52 guest accommodations and 2 villas on its vast 1800 acre private island.

Welcome to Peter Island, where the sweet fragrances of hibiscus and lilies linger in the air and towering palm trees sway in the seabreeze.

Exceptional Peter Island cuisine, wine room, and open-air restaurants await Peter Island guests. Under the guidance of Chef Wilford “Willo” Stoutt, Peter Island Resort is known throughout the Caribbean as much for its innovative cuisine as its inspired scenery. A 28-year veteran of the resort, Chef Willo artfully combines international favorites with island flair. Classic yet contemporary dishes fused with Asian and Italian culinary influences are served with the unmistakable warmth and personable Caribbean character of Peter Island.

To showcase the essential complement to exceptional food, Peter Island Resort added a wine room to Tradewinds, complete with a mahogany banquet table, floor-to-ceiling wine cases and precise climate control. The resort broadened the depth, variety and quality of wines available and now offers over 300 selections within the Caribbean’s most exclusive collection of champagne, wine, cognac, armagnac, grappa and eau de vie up to $450 per bottle.

Every Thursday, Peter Island Resort welcomes 12 guests to the vintner’s wine-pairing dinner in the private wine room, complete with a colonial-style mahogany table and floor-to-ceiling wine cases. Each Saturday evening, a bountiful buffet is served featuring tastes of the Caribbean.

Before or after dining, Drake’s Channel Lounge serves sumptuous cocktails and frozen drinks amidst cushioned chaises and brisk Caribbean breezes. Resort favorites include the Landscape, a tri-colored concoction of midori, mango and raspberry, and the Mango Smoothie blended with ice cream, rum and coconut cream.

For “Caribbean Tea” each afternoon, Chef Willo directs English tradition with a tropical spin, offering flavored iced teas with fresh-baked pastries and Caribbean breads. Typical fare includes passion fruit, mango, rum, lemongrass or cinnamon tea with coconut drops, banana or carrot bread, and pancake-sized chocolate chip cookies.

Deadman’s Beach Bar & Grill, camouflaged by seagrape trees and towering palms, offers lighter fare for lunch and dinner with the most dramatic setting in the Caribbean. The restaurant features a wood-fired pizza oven and Mediterranean-inspired lunch and dinner menus as well as new china, glassware, linens, seat coverings, painting, and lighting. Each Sunday, a live steel drum band accompanies lunch, all just steps from the shore under the shade of a cedar shake roof.

Early morning coffee and Caribbean pastries are served daily in the library, amidst comfortable couches, the only public television on island, and shelves of classic and contemporary novels. The library is an open-air shrine to the yachting lanes of Drake’s Channel with its folding louver doors of rich mahogany lining each side.
For a classic taste of the Caribbean, make Peter Island your next vacation destination.
