Virgin Gorda’s Hidden Gem : Oil Nut Bay
Chic Family Travels was invited to tour Oil Nut Bay during our recent family vacation at Little Dix Bay. Oil Nut Bay has largely gone under the radar, and I discovered it only by nosing around Luxury Link. Oil Nut Bay has primarily relied on word of mouth, and I really wanted to see this Virgin Gorda hidden gem for myself.
Oil Nut Bay is located on Virgin Gorda, but only accessible by boat as there is no road leading to it. Thus, Oil Nut Bay sent over their private boat to pick us up and take us on a short 15 minute boat ride to the resort.
Upon arrival to Oil Nut Bay, I was immediately impressed with the arrival dock. I heart gold lettering…just saying.
They even had cold bottles of water waiting on us. Rum punch would have been better. In their defense, they might not have known that we are perfectly o.k. with drinking in the morning while on vacation.
We jumped in a golf cart and headed out to tour Oil Nut Bay. One word describes Oil Nut Bay…wow. As it should with a starting price of 1.9 million for a home site. If that sounds like chump change to you, home sites are offered up to 15 million. Needless to say, this is where the rich and famous will play.
Everyone of the home sites will have a breath-taking view of the Caribbean Sea. While I may never own one of these posh pads, I have a photo of the view! Whacha think? If I had 15 mil lying around, I would be buying in!
Don’t have 15 million lying around? Me either, but you can still spend a week or two at Oil Nut Bay. This Oil Nut Bay view picture is actually very close to where the 3 Cliff Suites are located, and you can rent a 1 bedroom Cliff Suite for a Virgin Gorda vacation. If you book the Cliff Suites through Luxury Link, it will cost around $5200 for a week.
Oil Nut Bay is primarily a residential home development, but you can also rent the vacation homes that are included in the rental program. Oil Nut Bay will be a full service resort offering a kids club, fitness center, tennis facilities, marina village, pool, and restaurant. We had the pleasure of enjoying lunch at the Oil Nut Bay Beach Club. The Beach Club overlooks the pool, and is not open to the public.
Here is my little photo bomber again! You knew that he would eventually make an appearance 🙂
We enjoyed our wood fire pizza cooked to perfection at the Oil Nut Bay Beach Club, and had to head back to Little Dix Bay.
Oh snap, look what photo opp I discovered on our way out! I got it here first Heidi, so don’t even think about it 🙂
