More than six years ago, Joe Collier of Mainsail Hotels visited Donovan's Reef Restaurant on remote Scrub Island while on vacation. During a long evening of good conversation, food and camaraderie with the family who owned and operated the restaurant, the vision to build an exclusive luxury resort and spa on the unspoiled 230-acre tropical paradise took shape. After more than a decade of planning, Mainsail Development International, in conjunction with Scrub Island Development Group, LLC, broke ground in October 2005 on a $100 million resort development to include a boutique hotel, soothing spa, 65-slip marina and luxurious residences.
Careful to protect the natural beauty of the island which inspired them, the developers are making painstaking efforts to preserve the surroundings that make the island so special. This is the first new resort development in the British Virgin Islands in more than 15 years.
Approximately 65 slips are planned ranging in size from 30ft. to 150ft. The facilities will be first-class with complete access to fuel, ice and supplies. As an added benefit, Mainsail property owners will receive first property on slip availability and short term / long term lease options. For the fisherman, Mainsail Marina will become the ultimate location. The "North Drop" area, the hot spot for world record billfish-Blue Marlin, White Marlin and Sailfish is only 40 minutes away. Several premiere fishing charter boats will operate from Scrub Island. Lastly, rental boats will also be available for inshore fishing for kingfish, bonefish, mackerel and tarpon.
Reflective of the world-class standards, Scrub Island Marina will offer much more than a place to leave your yacht. We will provide a luxurious lifestyle experience with amenities and services that make your arrival a celebration.
