IRAS CREEK RESORT IN VIRGIN GORDA NAMED TO TRAVEL + LEISURE MAGAZINE'S 2004 WORLD'S BEST HOTELS
Biras Creek Resort, on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, has earned the distinction of being listed among Travel + Leisure’s annual World’s Best Awards in the magazine’s July 2004 issue. Of the top 25 hotels within the Caribbean, Biras Creek ranked sixth on the list. The resort was ranked previously in Travel + Leisure in August 2002.
Biras Creek Resort is tucked away on a 140-acre hillside peninsula in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. Accessible only by boat, this idyllic tropical retreat has a long-standing reputation for excellence. It is a member of the exclusive Relais & Chateaux, one of only five like properties in the Caribbean. With accommodations for fewer than 60 guests at a time, the all-suite hotel melds the vivid natural beauty of the islands with the elegance of understatement – flawless service, superb cuisine and accommodations.
This year, Biras Creek has added Spa by the Sea, a health and beauty spa complete with the latest in treatments and a yoga platform dramatically positioned on the beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Spa by the Sea features unique treatments infused with locally grown aloe and salt from the nearby Salt Islands as well as DeclÈÃ, the exclusive French line of cosmetics and beauty products.
Twenty Ocean Suites are perfectly situated along the water’s edge for sweeping views of uninterrupted green and the ocean beyond. Nine Garden Suites give way to magnificent flora and fauna in a rainbow of hues with peeks of the emerald sea in the distance. Bathrooms feature a delightful private outdoor shower. Two Grand Suites and one Premier Suite offer the ultimate in tropical luxury with such features as panoramic windows facing Berchers Bay, magnificent sitting and living rooms, and furnished outdoor verandas overlooking the ocean. Additionally, oversized bathrooms feature indoor/outdoor showers and freestanding deep bathtubs.
