Since its conception, this island landmark was a cut above, where we residents would “dress” for dinner, celebrate special occasions, and always the cuisine has been among the best on island. Its early beginnings in the 1600s were decidedly upscale as well. It was the Apple Bay Plantation during the height of slavery and rum trading. The romantic restaurant, within the stone walls of the old mill, like the hotel, has won more awards than any place in Tortola. It is one of the few that has contemporary plate presentations. The gazebo adjacent to the bar is a pleasant place to begin with one of the well-concocted, Caribbean cocktails. And breakfast is far and above the norm, like Eggs Benedict with mushrooms and green-onion, Béarnaise sauce.
Accommodations are individualistic with the newest duo close to the sea but also to the main road. If sensitive to morning street noise, opt for a hillside or pool suite. Lots of pink and white decor and delicate, tropical flowers, all of which are honeymoon-worthy.
Across the road, chaises have been set up on the petite beach and in season there is lunch service. One can walk to Sebastian’s and Long Bay from here. (See those reviews.) There are hiking trails to Sage Mountain. Located among the peaceful villages in the west end, the landing for the ferry from St. Thomas is just five minutes away.
Hotel packages are tailor made and can include meals, a rent-a-car, diving, sailing, – what you like.
