Surfsong Villa Resort – The Perfect Staycation

A sense of calm washes over you the moment you pass through the gates at Surfsong.
Tucked away just a short ride over the bridge from Tortola in the BVI, this boutique resort is a peaceful sanctuary from day-to-day life. With unforgettable views, luxurious amenities, attentive staff, and a tranquil atmosphere, Surfsong offers guests the best of personalised service and a place you’ll want to return to time and again.
Butterflies dance among the lush green trees, friendly geckos dart across the paths, and the playful sound of bananaquits ring throughout the Surfsong property. With seven secluded villas and a maximum number of 30 guests at a time, you’ll feel you have this private oasis all to yourselves.
Resort founders Mark and Cate Stephenson have modelled the resort after the way they like to travel and Surfsong has welcomed guests to Beef Island’s southern shore for more than 10 years.
“We love convenience and a place to call home on our travels. But we also appreciate privacy and a high level of service from a resort. Surfsong is the perfect home base for adventuring throughout the BVI,” said Cate.
Each of the villas offer elegant bedrooms with plush king beds, plenty of space to relax and a sense of intimate exclusivity not often found in a resort setting. As the name suggests, the song of the waves reverberates throughout the five-acre property, creating a sense of serenity wherever you go. The boutique nature of Surfsong gives guests the ability to discover the islands on their own time, at their own pace, with the amenities they like best.
Entering the main reception area is like walking into a treasured friend’s home. Cosy furniture offers a gathering space for friends and family, and the honour bar makes creating your own cocktails and refreshments simple and easy. Take what you like and simply write down your choices to be billed later to your villa.
A two-story beach lounge provides space for indulging in an afternoon spent with a book in a gently swinging hammock, a friendly game of cards with your fellow travellers, or a cocktail party to celebrate any of life’s great moments. As low tide washes over the rocks and coral just beyond the resort, elegant white herons land gracefully as if on cue, skates and stingrays glide through the shallows, and the sound of the surf provides a peaceful soundtrack to daily life at Surfsong.
Just steps away from the beach lounge, plenty of soft white sand gives guests room to relax before an expanse of calm, cool water lapping the shore of Well Bay. Paddleboards, kayaks, and a Hobie Cat are available to guests at any time during their stay and present endless hours of fun on the water.
Explore the sea grape path along the shore and you’ll discover a number of picturesque places to stop and create a memory. A charming waterfront pavilion presents an amazing place to enjoy a cool breeze, take in a good book, or even steal a secret nap. Wine and cheese on the settee is a lovely end to the day, and this private and romantic spot will quickly become your favourite view in the BVI.
One of the most delicious parts of a stay at Surfsong is dining at The Courtyard restaurant. Executive Chef David Cioppa creates truly memorable culinary experiences that will surprise and delight guests. His creative, refined dishes crafted from local Caribbean ingredients make every bite unforgettable. With more than 20 years of experience as a chef in New York City, Chef Cioppa focuses on fresh, accessible Caribbean food that is only available at The Courtyard.
Surfsong is now offering The Courtyard dining experience to the public for the first time since opening more than a decade ago. With a limited number of tables and a reservations-only format, each dining experience is intimate and personal. Nestled among towering boulders, romantic tables are bathed in flickering light from a fire feature, and a trickling waterfall sets a soft, natural tone for a special evening. Dinner guests can enjoy a chef-prepared meal on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights starting in June 2016.
Chef Cioppa creates an elegant new menu each day, inspired and shaped by what local ingredients are in season and what guests have been requesting as repeated favourites. Dining in The Courtyard at Surfsong is much like an overnight stay, where personalised wishes are always welcomed. Dietary restrictions, personal preferences, and special requests mean your evening is tailored to your desires.
A new staycation package makes the Surfsong experience available to BVI and USVI residents like never before. Be pampered for a long weekend at Surfsong and enjoy a two-night stay in June through October that includes meals and accommodations. The ability to experience a high-end boutique resort is available at Surfsong, which will quickly become your favourite place to stay in the BVI.
Perfect for couples, friends traveling together, multi-generational travel, and corporate retreats and meetings, Surfsong is the ultimate in personalised boutique accommodations in the Caribbean. With all of the convenience of a resort stay at your fingertips, you’ll feel like you’re on an island of your own.
