Recommended as the 'most romantic' place to the stay in the Virgin Islands, Pavilions & Pools has been written about in Fodors Guide as a place where you could disappear, undisturbed, and never be seen until you leave. You can be free in your own BBQ and relax.
The Secret has been the subject of a tasteful gut renovation and has been restored, with an eye to every detail, to a private, just-for-two, luxury destination.
2 TV's. Movie channels. The pure sound of Dolby Stereo. Immaculate kitchen, well stocked with fine glasses, plates and cook water. Four ring glass stove top. Winter opener. Stainless steel fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Bar with beautiful honeycomb tile detail. Faux finishes and beautiful original art.
Once you enter through your gate you are in another world, far away from the demands of life so that you focus on your partner, or the novel you are writing and total, undisturbed relaxation.
Your pool is pristine and at night it sparkles for your midnight swim. Beyond it palm tree fronds and bright bougainvillea sway in the gently breeze. and you have a lovely sea view beyond. You alone can sea the islands of Tortola and St. John and passing sailboats. You are on the edge of a rare protected swathe of original caribbean eastern dry jungle that runs into the national park behind the incredibly beautiful Lindquist Beach..
Here, beneath the shade or your gazebo, you can sip your morning coffee or cocktail, watching butterflies or hummingbirds, busy amongst the tropical plants.
Walk down the footpath to get to Pelican Beach, just beyond your jungle, to experience some of the island's best snorkeling in the coral canyons along the edge of Pelican Point. From here you wan walk along almost a golden mile of Sapphire Beach to the Sapphire Beach Marina. The boats here can be the launch to your own personal water borne adventure.
Breakaway leaves from here and is the best way to see all of the 50 plus islands in the archipelago in one day. You will be visiting the famous Baths at Virgin Gorda and dining on another island and visiting the Soggy Dollar Bay on Jost Van Dyke, so bring your passport. Stay closer to home and choose one of the day sails to the national park of St. John. Snorkel. Lunch at Honeymoon Beach. Take a romantic sunset cruise. Champagne. Celebrate.
For those who like action some of the best scuba diving is to be found around these islands so visit Red Hook Dive, 5 minutes away. The marina also offers one of the best deep sea fishing experiences if you would like to try your hand at catching a Wahoo.
Time to eat, so throw your fish or steak on your barbecue in your garden and chill out in the pool as the delicious aroma rises.
It's the most convenience place to cool down. You don't have to walk around carrying towels and bother with taking your clothes on an off. You are already right at home.
Don't feel like cooking on the grill or in your gourmet kitchen? Then walk down the path through the tropical gardens outside of your personal preserve to visit Cheers Mate, our friendly pub on the property. Try happy hour of a meal beneath the tent as you enjoy the big comfy cushions and the beautiful view of Cruz Bay, in St. John, just across Pillsbury Sound.
You could also visit Red Hook, the centre of the island's night life, just 5 minutes away. There is something for everyone here with over a dozen bars and restaurants to choose from. Use our free concierge service to ask what might be right for you or which beach you should go to be all alone.
There are several luxury aspects to your accommodations here that are very rare but which will make your life very comfortable. The quiet split AC gives you separate controls and air conditioning units for your living area and bedroom. When you retire you can switch off your living room unit and retire to your cosy bedroom with your own remote control for the AC in your bedroom to guarantee your sleeping comfort.
Again you have tow TV': one on your living room and one in your bedroom. We have more channels here than anywhere else so you will have a selection of the latest movies that you can watch in bed.
You BBQ grill has a choice of two grill areas: small just for you or huge if you are having a party.

Guestbook comments from the manager
I have lived on an off the island for over 20 years.
30 years experience in hospitality. I have worked at the Ritz Carlton and Hilton and some famous island hotels.
My emphasis is on personal service.
To the best of my knowledge this is the most upgraded cottage at Pavilions & Pools.
It is one of a few with a sea view beyond the jungle.
The perfect romantic retreat.
