The British Virgin Islands are known as “Nature’s Little Secret”, but the secret is out, and Oil Nut Bay is one of the most spectacular resorts in the Caribbean. Its new Marina Village allows guests to dock their boat, dine and discover this new fantastic oasis.
Oil Nut Bay’s Marina Village showcases relaxed outdoor dining, breezy covered lounging, a boutique island coffee bar and shopping. It is a refreshing social destination to unwind with friends and family whether you are staying on the property or arriving by boat. Nova, the signature overwater restaurant offers exceptional cuisine, a large island-style bar, a suspended swimming pool, overwater hammocks, daybeds and more.
The global dining experience is always evolving and Nova brings a brand-new dining concept to the BVI. A high-end restaurant with a comfortable feel, dining at Nova is unlike anything in the region. Built over the water, Nova gathers family and friends around the table to share delectable small plates in an exquisite locale that’s both relaxing and rejuvenating. Experience a feast not only for the taste buds but for all of the senses: Choose to lunch in the restaurant or dine on one of the signature overwater hammocks.
The menu offers more than 50 small-plate dishes ranging in size all designed to complement one another and allows diners to share an experience together in an intimate and lively atmosphere. Sample a selection of flatbreads, dips, fresh seafood and desserts. A local favourite is the Copper Pot Cauliflower, featuring a burnt butter-roasted whole head of cauliflower on a bed of Skordalia Sauce with toasted pine nuts and pomegranate seeds, finished with microgreens and more. All of the dishes in Nova feature the highest quality locally grown ingredients or procured whenever possible.
More Than A Marina
With an air of a European beach club, the Marina Village is perfect for an all-day excursion. Immersing yourself in the beautiful setting is all about letting go, unwinding and truly soaking up the Oil Nut Bay experience.
Sip on exotic teas and made-to-order espresso drinks from the coffee shop’s full menu featuring small-batch artisanal coffees by Virgin Island Coffee Roasters. Pair your brews with house-made pastries, cakes and breads. Enjoy your beverage as you stroll the docks, watch the sea turtles dance beneath the water’s surface or browse through books at the library.
Oil Nut Bay’s library has been thoughtfully curated by true book lovers to educate, entertain and inspire. Tailored to the British Virgin Islands locale, the library is a quiet retreat where guests can soak in information about the region, read a current novel, trade a book out with the book exchange or simply unplug and relax. As part of Oil Nut Bay’s commitment to reading and the local community, a library has been donated to the Robinson O’Neal Memorial Primary School in the North Sound.
After a coffee and a little reading, explore fashionable wearables, gift items, and local crafts at the boutique. Featuring chic resort wear for men, women and children from international and Caribbean designers, exclusively curated for Oil Nut Bay. Guests can shop for everything from swimwear to caftans, cover-ups and dresses. A variety of sundries including t-shirts, jewellery, bags, gifts, sun and skincare products are also available.
Whether you choose to join us for our Sunday Brunch, lunch or dinner, coffee, a cocktail at the bar or retail therapy, the Marina Village at Oil Nut Bay is brimming with island style and laid-back vibes that everyone will enjoy.
