Pampered on Peter Island in the off-season
For ultimate luxury, look no further than Peter Island Resort and Spa. The largest private island in the BVIs allows guests to reserve the entire island as well as the airspace above if their wallets are deep enough, but living on St. John allowed us to take advantage of the local off-season rate and spend our anniversary week being pampered in style. Vacationing at the exclusive resort in September had its perks: we were one of four couples on the entire island. Staying at a resort where staffers outnumbered guests, we whiled our days away on isolated beaches––save for the server who delivered a picnic basket and chilled bottle of wine around midday––and we spent our afternoons alone at the world-class spa. Book the last couple’s massage of the day to enjoy a private bohio perched above roaring seas for an extra hour or two. Not much can beat watching the sun sink into an endless tangerine-tinged sea next to your love with a glass of champagne in hand.
