GUANA ISLAND, B.V.I.

Guana Island in the British Virgin Islands is, perhaps, the oldest private-island resort in continuous operation in the entire Caribbean. And for good reason.

A PRIVATE ISLAND WITH 15 ROOM GUEST ACCOMMODATIONS AND GUEST COTTAGE

GUANA ISLAND IS LIKE NO PLACE ON EARTH.THOUGH ITS NOT UNCOMMON IN FICTION

The escapist kind, In which a character knows someone who owns a private island in the Caribbean where a small group gathers and the plot unfolds. The island doesn't have bus tours, public restaurants, or glitz of any kind. It does however, have excellent accommodations, fine service wonderful food, acres of privacy per guest, a year round daily temperature in the low eighties and a choice of oceans. This makes good reading, we admit. But , as your about to discover, its even better when its real.....

A private island hideaway where the sun always shines, the tradewinds keep the temperature where you like it and there is no pace to keep but your own.

Guana Island is an 850-acre unspoiled paradise in the British Virgin Islands. Once a Quaker sugar cane plantation, the island is now the exclusive province of the Guana Island Club, a beautiful intimate resort built on the historic ruins of the centuries-old Quaker estate. Guests on Guana Island stay in rooms with private baths and terraces, in cottages along a ridge with a panoramic view. With the splendor of nature taking peoples breath away at every turn, some restraint was used indoors.

The interiors are comfortably but not overwhelmingly furnished in a style that comes out of the history of the island. The mood favors native stone architecture without media rooms and discos. White Bay Beach is the mile-long stretch of pure white coral sand that most of the guests use every day. And since they never number more than thirty, its hard to imagine anyone thinking it crowded. However, when you really want to be alone, there are six more beaches on the island, some so secluded they are accessible only by boat, and a very private picnic can be arranged.

Guana Island is a haven for many endangered species, including the Masked Booby, the Barefoot Screech Owl, and the Crestfallen Traveler. This is a real wildlife sanctuary, with an official designation and more flora and fauna than any island its size in the Caribbean, maybe even the world. The dining terrace overlooks both the Atlantic and the Caribbean.

After cocktails, guests gather at friendly social dining tables for dinner, or they can opt for more privacy.

Guana Island takes its name from an iguana-shaped rock formation on its western coast.

Getting there is easy. Fly to Tortola via San Juan, St. Thomas or St. Croix. Guana's boatmen will meet you at Beef Island Airport and take you on the ten-minute cruise to this very special island in the Caribbean with 7 Private Beaches

7 BEACHES

Built in the 1930s amongst the 17th century ruins of a Quaker sugar plantation, Guana Island has been painstakingly diligent in preserving its old-Caribbean character and charm. There's no glitz here. No TVs, no phones in the guest rooms. The spacious, paddlefanned accommodations and large modern baths admittedly extend beyond Quaker tradition, however. And ample cross ventilation and openness allow the scents and sounds of this 850-acre, private-island sanctuary to find their way to you.

This superb resort has seven beaches (some so private they are accessible only by boat), two tennis courts, myriad boating activities and miles of well-marked trails through unspoiled foliage to splendid mountaintops. The guests of the 15 accommodations enjoy panoramic views of the sea and neighboring islands. And for honeymooners and others desiring ultimate privacy, there is the secluded North Beach Cottage, a one-bedroom house with living room, kitchen and bath, surrounded by open and closed decks for dining, lounging or sunbathing.

Guana Island is a place where busy people can pause, take stock and renew themselves in absolute comfort and assured privacy.

YOU GUESSED IT. TEAMS OF DECORATORS WERE NOT FLOWN IN FROM NEW YORK

With the splendor of nature taking people's breath away at every turn, we decided to use some restraint indoors.Our interiors are comfortably but not overwhelmingly furnished in a style that comes out of the history of the island, which was once a sugar cane plantation owned by American Quakers. Thats right, Americam Quakers - but Quakers who knew how to live!

The favored native stone architecture and managed very nicely without media rooms and discoe... That mood still prevails
