Nothing says “luxury” like a private island. And in the BVI, a new wave of “purposeful luxury” has emerged in The Aerial BVI. The new, all-inclusive private island destination combines the beauty of these islands with a unique opportunity for resort guests to reconnect to what really matters in their lives.
Perched atop Buck Island overlooking the Sir Francis Drake Channel, the expansive 43-acre property offers impeccable views of 14 surrounding islands and not-to-be-missed sunsets. Designed to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor experiences, the resort itself is fused with the island’s topography to make “nature’s little secret” – the British Virgin Islands themselves – the star of the show.
Five residences – Unity House, Faith House, Serenity House, Love Villa and Grace Villa – can sleep more than 30 guests at a time. Spacious rooms with en suite baths and outdoor showers add to the unique island experience. Each individual room was designed with a specific intention that is shared with guests to maximize their time at the resort. Guests will also enjoy relaxing on private terraces and balconies that allow them to soak in as much of what Mother Nature has to offer from the beautiful BVI.
A sparkling horizon-edge pool seems to reach out into the sea, and a wide range of on- and off-island activities will keep everyone entertained while staying present and centred.
The staff at The Aerial BVI are passionate about curating an incredible bespoke experience for guests. Bookings include a personal island concierge, multiple island hosts, world-class nutritionist chefs, wellness consultants, spa therapists, water sports instructors, as well as garden and animal specialists, all welcoming guests with a range of cerebral and physical activities.
The primary purpose of The Aerial BVI is to help guests achieve personal goals while encouraging real, authentic growth from the inside out. Part of this growth begins with the strategically-sourced local BVI food, professionally prepared by nutritionist master chefs. All food and beverage has been carefully curated to heal people and raise their vibrational frequency, exposing guests to a new way of eating that allows them to think their best, feel their best, create at their best, and connect back to the planet in a beautiful and sustainable way.
The property is a true farm-to-table experience serving the most delicious yet healing food on the planet. Every dish has been carefully sourced to offer optimal health for guests while sustaining the planet. Onsite gardens grow produce and herbs that the kitchen uses, and all other ingredients which cannot be grown on the property come from local BVI suppliers. Any other non-BVI food items are sustainably sourced. By keeping food as local as possible, The Aerial BVI has created strong community ties which guests can experience through foraging expeditions with the chef and local cooking classes.
Wellness is woven into the island’s DNA and runs as a backbone to every guest experience. The Aerial BVI boasts world-class wellness practitioners who are on hand to guide guests through activities such as guided writing, presence training, environmental healing, red light therapies, immunity-boosting treatments, acupuncture, nature hikes, yoga and ocean water therapy. Guided wellness retreats are also available and practitioners work with guests pre-arrival to cater each retreat to the goals and desires of individual visitors.
One mission of the Aerial BVI is to serve as a positive resource for the surrounding British Virgin Islands. During a portion of their stay, guests are given the opportunity to serve or give back in the form of teaching within the community, turtle tagging, reef clean up and more. This collaboration has resulted in a ripple effect of positive transformation for the greater community.
The Aerial BVI’s sustainability credentials stretch far outside just the kitchen with practices such as composting, zero waste management programs, sustainable job training programs for local BVI islanders, electric on-property vehicles (Mokes) and community outreach, with major solar power projects planned for the future. Additionally, the resort’s structures feature materials made from natural stones and shells from the island itself. Rooms are stocked with products featuring all-natural ingredients, including locally-made sunscreen.
The Aerial BVI is an all-inclusive experience, and bookings start from £30,500 per night with a 3-night stay minimum. To inquire about reservations, visit www.aerialbvi.com.
