Beautiful, peaceful and perfect are just a few adjectives previous guests used to describe the Bitter End Yacht Club. Located on the northern edge of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands , this resort caters to travelers looking for a vacation that's equal parts relaxing and fun. Guests have their choice of Reef Rooms, Horizon Rooms, Garden Rooms or the Owner's Compound, which can accommodate up to six guests.

No matter which accommodation type you choose, you'll find all rooms come equipped with coffee makers, teak furniture, Wi-Fi access and wraparound verandas. Chances are you won't be spending a ton of time in your room, though. Bitter End Yacht Club provides a plethora of activities and water sports equipment. The resort has a daily activity schedule, which includes things like snorkeling tours, yoga classes, windsurfing lessons and excursions to top BVI sights like the Baths . When you get hungry, there are three on-site restaurants where you can sample everything from Caribbean cuisine and fresh seafood to casual bites like pizza and sandwiches. Note: The resort was impacted by the 2017 hurricanes and is expected to reopen again soon.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“ Terms ”) CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS AS WELL AS A SECTION GOVERNING THE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF DISPUTES. THESE TERMS ALSO CONTAIN A LEGALLY BINDING RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK. By creating a username, a login, clicking submit, using the services of Charter Experts, LLC d/b/a Virgin Island Sailing® (“ Broker ) or by accessing Broker’s website, you agree that you have read, and acknowledge your acceptance of these Terms. The Terms are subject to change at any time without notice at Broker’s sole discretion. Additionally, any transaction for which you have made payment shall be governed by the form of Terms in effect at the time of such payment notwithstanding any subsequent changes hereto.

If you are obtaining a quote, information, booking travel for and/or securing or procuring a Charter (as that term is defined in Section 1 below) for more than just yourself, all references below to “Charterer” or “you” (and derivations thereof) shall be read to mean you on behalf of yourself and each individual within your group for whom you are obtaining a quote, information, booking travel for and/or securing or procuring Charter.

These Terms shall be read together and construed, to the fullest extent possible, to be in concert with any other agreement by or among Broker and Charterer. To the extent they cannot be so construed, then in the event of any direct conflict between these Terms and any other agreement by or among Broker and Charterer (including but not limited to the agreement executed by Charterer for a Charter Reservation (as that term is defined in Section 1 below), these Terms shall prevail.

  • Prepaid Charter Reservations . Typically, Broker negotiates charter rates in advance with the yacht owner or charter company (“ Charter Provider ”) to obtain cost-effective rates, and facilitate reservations and availability for yacht charters, excursions and travel (the “ Charter ”). Broker also provides services to you by facilitating the booking of reservations for consideration and receives a commission from the Charter Provider (the “ Broker Fee ”). The Broker Fee is included in the pre-negotiated Charter rate provided to you, plus taxes and other fees where applicable. You agree that your payment is for the total amount set forth in the applicable Charter agreement (which Charter Provider may refer to as a Charter Contract, Charter Agreement, Booking Terms & Conditions, Instructions and Terms for Accommodations, as well as other derivations) provided to you by Broker (“ Charter Agreement ”). Upon execution of the Charter Agreement and receipt of the applicable deposit, you will have made a reservation for the Charter that authorizes Broker to facilitate the Charter on your behalf (“Charter Reservation”), including making payment arrangements with the Charter Provider. You further agree that Broker is a third-party beneficiary to the Charter Agreement and shall have the right to enforce such agreement to the extent it deems such enforcement necessary or advisable to protect its rights hereunder or under the Charter Agreement.

  Broker retains the Broker Fee as compensation in arranging your Charter Reservation. The Broker Fee varies based on the amount and type of Charter and/or services provided by Broker.  By making a Charter Reservation, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of the Charter Provider set forth in the Charter Agreement. Cancellation and no-show policies vary for each Charter. Carefully read the Charter Agreement and additional information provided to you by Broker. It is expressly agreed by Charterer that the Broker Fee is earned at the time the Charter Reservation is made. Late payment, wrong credit card or debit card details, invalid credit or debit cards, or insufficient funds are for your own risk and account, and you will not be entitled to any refund of any prepaid amount unless the Charter Provider expressly agrees otherwise under the Charter Agreement or in some other signed writing.

  • Charter Rules and Restrictions . Additional terms and agreements will apply to your Charter Reservation and any purchase or rental of equipment or other items, supplies, provisions and travel you may select. Please read those additional terms carefully. In particular, if you have purchased airfare, please ensure that you read the full terms and conditions of carriage issued by the supplier. You agree to abide by the terms of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal, including but not limited to payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the supplier’s rules and restrictions regarding availability, charges, fares, and use of products and services.
  • Payment . All payments must be made by personal check, bank/wire transfer, ACH payment and/or with a major credit card unless otherwise expressly stated. The total price for the Charter Reservation will be billed in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise stated. Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for international transactions. If you are making a reservation from outside of the United States on a US credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee. This means the amount listed on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and therefore a different figure than the amount provided by Broker for the Charter Reservation. In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the financial institution that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States. Booking international travel may be considered to be an international transaction by the financial institution or card company. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your financial institution on the day that it processes the transaction. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your financial institution. Broker shall not be liable to you for any such service, conversion, or exchange fee.

  Broker expressly reserves the right to cancel your Charter Reservation if full payment is not timely received as set forth in the Charter Agreement.

  • Cancellation and Rescheduling . You may cancel or change your Charter Reservation as set forth in the Charter Agreement by and among you, the Charter Provider and/or Broker. Please note that some Charter Providers do not permit changes to or cancellation of reservations after they are made, or after a certain date, as indicated in the Charter Agreement. You agree to abide by the terms of the Charter Agreement with respect to your Charter Reservation. Broker will not be responsible for reimbursing Charterer for any previously tendered deposits or payments by Charterer and disclaims all liability for the failure of a Charter Provider to refund or return any such funds.
  • Credit Card Transactions and Chargebacks . If for any reason, any Charter Provider is unable to provide the Charter, or any part thereof, for which you have contracted, your remedy lies against the Charter Provider, and not against Broker. However, Broker will use reasonable efforts to assist you and Charter Provider in reaching a resolution to a dispute between you and the Charter Provider. In the event that your payment has already been transferred from Broker to Charter Provider or to an escrow account, you agree that you will not seek a chargeback against Broker for such amounts transferred. You further agree to indemnify and hold Broker harmless from and against any liability, loss, damage or expense (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) that Broker may incur in connection with chargebacks against Broker or under the Charter Agreement and your performance thereunder. If Broker incurs any costs, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, to recover any payments charged back by your credit card company or other financial institution, you agree that you will be liable for these costs. If your payment is declined for any reason, you agree to settle any amounts owed to Broker via money order, cashier’s check, personal check or bank/ACH transfer immediately.
  • Broker Responsibility . Broker makes arrangements with the Charter Provider. Broker additionally makes additional arrangements with other suppliers for the various components and other services that comprise your Charter (“Charter Suppliers”). Broker is not an agent of these Charter Providers or the Charter Suppliers (and the Charter Providers and Charter Suppliers are not agents of Broker). Broker expressly disclaims any liability for the actions or omissions of the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers. The Charter Providers and the Charter Suppliers reserve the right to refuse service to you at their sole discretion. Broker assumes no liability for the acts of the Charter Provider or the Charter Suppliers in refusing service. Broker is not responsible for schedule changes and does not offer compensation for those changes. Broker is not responsible under any circumstances for any injury or damages you may suffer, in connection with sea, air or ground transportation, hotel accommodations, or other travel or excursion services arranged by Broker.

  You understand Broker is not the source or supplier of the Charter or other travel services you requested and acts solely as a broker for the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers. You agree that the Charter Provider and Charter Suppliers whose names appear in the information supplied to you are those who are solely responsible for providing the Charter you purchase. You consent to and request the use of the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers and agree to not hold Broker responsible should any of them: (i) fail to provide the Charter or travel services you purchased, whether or not such services are listed in the Charter Agreement or otherwise, (ii) fail to comply with any applicable law, or (iii) engage in any negligent act or omission that causes you any sort of injury, damage, delay or inconvenience.

By using Broker’s services, you waive and release any claim against Broker, its affiliated and subsidiary companies, and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents, arising out of or in connection with any loss of or damage to property or injury to any person caused by reason of (i) any defect, negligence, or other wrongful act or omission, or any failure of performance of any kind, by any Charter Provider, Charter Suppliers, or any other provider of sea, airline, hotel, ground transportation or any other travel provider connected to or otherwise associated with the Charter, (ii) any claim for inconvenience, loss of enjoyment, mental distress or other similar claim, (iii) any delayed departure, missed connection, substitute accommodation, termination of service or change in fares or rates, and (iv) overbooking, flight or other travel cancellation, lost or misconnected personal property, or any claim arising out of the air transportation portion of your travel, and (v) or any other claim arising out of or otherwise related to the Charter Agreement or services provided by the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers.

Excepting only liability that directly arises from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Broker, you will not hold Broker responsible for any injury, damage or loss you may suffer while on a Charter, whether incurred on the Charter or in connection with any other rental, purchase, excursion or activity, regardless of the relationship of any of the foregoing with the Charter Provider or the Charter Suppliers.

  • Your Responsibility . By booking a Charter with Broker, you agree to defend and indemnify and hold harmless Broker, Charter Provider, Charter Suppliers, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, causes of action, demands, recoveries, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other costs or expenses of any kind or nature, including but not limited to reasonable legal fees, arising out of or in connection with: (i) your breach of these Terms or the documents referenced herein; (ii) your violation of any law or rights of a third party; or (iii) your use of the Broker website.

You will review your Charter Agreement and travel documents for accuracy upon receipt. You understand that it is your responsibility to review the accuracy of all details in the Charter Reservation provided to you, and that you may contact Broker if you have any questions.

You assume full and complete responsibility for checking and verifying any and all passport, visa, vaccination, or other entry requirements of your destination(s), and all conditions regarding health, safety, security, political stability, and labor or civil unrest at such destination(s).

You understand that Broker recommends purchasing travel insurance to cover certain risks inherent in travel such as supplier bankruptcy and the inability to travel due to a medical or personal emergency.

  • No Warranties . All Charters, products, services, advice and information is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied to the fullest extent permitted under the law, including but not limited to, warranties of title or implied warranties of merchantability, satisfactory quality or fitness for a particular purpose. Without limiting the above, no warranty or guarantee is made (i) regarding the acceptance of any reservation request or Charter Reservation; (ii) regarding the availability of Charters, or any other product and/or services through Broker; (iii) that the use of Broker’s website will be error-free; or (iv) regarding the completeness, accuracy, reliability or quality of any information, content, data, service, advice or merchandise provided by Broker or through Broker’s website.

Broker has no special knowledge regarding the Charter Provider’s or Charter Supplier’s financial condition, unsafe conditions, health hazards, weather hazards, or climate extremes at locations to which you may travel during or otherwise in connection with your Charter.

  • Limitation on Liability . In no event shall Broker, Charter Provider, Charter Suppliers, and/or their respective affiliates, or any employees, agents, officers, directors, members or managers of any of the foregoing (“Broker and Charter Releasees”), be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of, or in any way connected with, your access to, display of or use the Broker’s website, the Charter or services provided to you in connection with the Charter (including, but not limited to, your reliance upon opinions of the Broker), whether based on a theory of negligence, contract, tort, strict liability, consumer protection statutes, or otherwise, and even if Broker and/or any other of the Broker and Charter Releasees have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

If, despite the limitation above, Broker or the Broker and Charter Releasees are found liable for any loss or damage which arises out of or in any way connected with any of the occurrences described above, then Broker, Charter Provider, Charter Supplier and the Broker and Charter Releasees will in no event exceed, in the aggregate, the greater of (a) the Broker Fee, and (b) One-Hundred Dollars (US $100.00).

The foregoing limitation of liability reflects the allocation of risk between the parties. The limitations specified in this section will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in these Terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose. The limitations of liability provided in these Terms inure to the benefit of Broker and/or its providers.

The foregoing does not affect any liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

  • Limitation on Time to File Claims . ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF RELATING TO BROKER’S SERVICES OR THE WEBSITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
  • Waiver . No waiver by Broker of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Broker to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
  • Severability . If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
  • Governing Law and Mandatory Venue . The laws of the State of Florida govern the rights and obligations of the parties to this Agreement and the interpretation, construction and enforceability thereof. You agree that any action or proceeding initiated by Charterer against Broker shall be brought solely in the federal and state courts of Hillsborough County, Florida, and you submit to the jurisdiction of those courts and waive any objections to the exercise of personal jurisdiction over you by those courts. In the event any action or proceeding is initiated by Charterer in a court outside of Hillsborough County, Florida, Charterer agrees to pay Broker’s costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees associated with defending such action or proceeding and waives any and all defenses to the transfer of said action or proceeding, whether jurisdictional or otherwise, to a federal or state court in Hillsborough County, Florida.

Bottom Line

This property was tragically impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria in September 2017 and is currently closed for repairs. Bitter End hopes to reopen in late 2018. The Bitter End Yacht Club, snuggled into a steep hill on the scenic North Sound, is a relaxed, family-friendly resort. The tech-free rooms (no TVs or Wi-Fi here) feature stunning views from the balconies, and the sliding doors allows breezes to sweep through; some rooms do not have air-conditioning but most guests find they don't miss it. While some rooms feel up-to-date (with bright comforters, sleek bathrooms, and comfy lounge chairs), others have dated furniture and are in need of renovations. The white-sand beaches at the hotel are narrow, but they are still the highlight here, offering plenty of water sports and relatively calm waters. The pool, however, is a disappointment: It is small and thus relatively unused. Families will likely enjoy the calm waters, the small kids' club, and the outdoor movie theater, while couples can enjoy the gorgeous views and the solid restaurant options.

Oyster Hotel Review

On a small white-sand beach on virgin gorda.

The Bitter End Yacht Club is tucked into the North Sound of Virgin Gorda, the British Virgin Islands' second largest island. Although Virgin Gorda does have a small airport (mostly used by chartered planes), the hotel is only accessible by boat.

Most guests fly into Beef Island Airport (adjacent to Tortola) and take the North Sound Express ferry straight to BEYC, which takes about 45 minutes. Those who fly into the Virgin Gorda Airport can take a short taxi ride (about $30 including tip) from Spanish Town (a tiny town with a grocery store and a restaurant) to Gun Creek jetty, from which the boat ride only takes about 15 minutes.

From the Bitter End, guests can nearly see mogul Richard Branson's private island, Necker Island, which is about a 15-minute boat ride away. The beaches at the hotel are small, but offer beautiful views of the surrounding archipelago, and the waters are host to the third largest Caribbean mega-yacht party, which takes place during the holidays every year.

bitter end yacht club virgin gorda

Note: This resort has suffered damage in the 2017 hurricane season and is closed until further notice.

Kids, some as young as seven, are perched in a Sunfish docked at the Bitter End Yacht Club, Virgin Gorda. They are learning about rigging, rudders and such de rigeur nautical terms as “starboard,” “port” and “mast” before their instructor heads them out for a hands-on sail in the splendid turquoise waters. Vacation at the Bitter End Yacht Club, Virgin Gorda, and you and your children can morph from landlubbers to savvy sailors.

Sailing is the prime past time of the British Virgin Islands (BVI). Along with fair winds, the British Virgin Islands are known for abundant harbors as more than 60 islands and uninhabited cays offer safe anchorage within a stretch of 80 nautical kilometers. With so many bays and secluded coves, BVI has always attracted sailors, including pirates. Ever sing “Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum” on a long family car ride? Legend has it that the ditty was inspired by the BVI islet where the notorious Blackbeard marooned 15 of his fellow swashbucklers along with one sword and a single bottle of rum.

The Bitter End Yacht Club, accessible only by water, is one of the best places in the Caribbean to learn to sail. The nautical term “Bitter End” refers to the end of a rope, but it’s also a perfect name for this resort, as it is located on the last spit of land before the open ocean. The resort attracts both experienced sailors, some docking their yachts at the property’s marina, as well as wannabes who don’t know their aft from a rudder but who are willing to learn. The best part of the Bitter End is everyone loves the ocean and no one cares or bothers to know who is sitting beside them at dinner, even if it’s neighboring Necker Island owner and Virgin Airlines and Records owner Richard Branson in his khaki shorts and flip-flops. The year-round sailing school offers a variety of hands-on courses as well as special classes for children at select times.

The laidback resort, where dressing for dinner typically means donning a clean T-shirt, offers 85 accommodations split between beachfront and hillside units. The windows, while screened to keep out bugs, are glass-less, meaning you’ll fall asleep to the sounds of the surf below and wake to spectacular sunrises.

Room Information

Find the best price for your stay.

The property offers 85 rooms split between beachfront villas and the North Sound Suites. Be aware that the villas and suites require some stairs. Pen flashlights are provided at check in to help you navigate the resort at night, when it's dimly lit and you're trying to find which villa is yours. A little tricky! Rooms come with porches, hammocks, a ceiling fan and mini-fridge but no televisions. Air conditioning is also available in all of the rooms as a back up.

Reef Rooms The beachfront rooms have what the resort calls a "West Indian treehouse" decor, a simple, but colorful ambiance with lots of wood, lilac walls, tiled bathrooms, teak vanities and batik fabrics. A ceiling fan, mini-fridge and coffee maker can also be found in these rooms.

Horizon Rooms These rooms are located on the resort's upper boardwalk and are considered the "tree house" rooms. There is a wrap-around veranda and the shower features a sea view.

Garden Rooms Located within the mangrove forest, these rooms also feature a wrap-around veranda.

The Bitter End Yacht club was totally destroyed by the Sept 2017 hurricanes. They are slowly proceeding to clean up & remove all the demolished structures. Based on personal observations, it will take a long time before anything is up & running. It shouldn’t be listed as an available option at the moment.

by Philip M

This amazing property was TOTALLY DESTROYED by Hurricane Irma in 2017. We hear some limited facilities may be open for the 2019-2020 season, but it's misleading to advertise rooms which do not exist at this time.

Family Activities

Beach There are three white sand swimming beaches at this resort. Families can find lounge chairs as well as Adirondack chairs to relax in as well. The swimming piers are also only steps away from all of the guestrooms, too.

Pool The outdoor fresh water pool offers families a great spot to hang out. Several lounge chairs surround the pool deck area and a few shaded areas can be found too.

Sailing If you can handle a sailboat, take your kids snorkeling on one of the complimentary Sunfish or Boston whalers. Many Bitter End packages include a three-hour introductory sailing class. Families with 'tweens and teens can take this workshop together and, for more instruction, sign-up for private lessons. The resorts Junior Watersports program targets teens 13 to 17. As a family, show off your skills by participating in the weekly sailing regatta.

Kids "Club" When children ages five to 12 are in-house, the resort offers two- to three-hours of activities once or twice day. These include a kid's kayak outing, sailing trip or a snorkeling trip, as well as afternoon arts and crafts at the resorts crafts center. With many children on property the resort may host an evening kids-only dinner followed by a movie or other activity.

Special sailing camps, geared for ages five to 12, operate during February President's Week, Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving (not summer). Through mostly hands-on instruction, kids learn basic sailing as well as go tube riding and race in family regattas. In summer, the resort offers Junior Sailing classes for ages 7 and older.

Movies The outdoor "theater" is a bit small, but it offers two movie screenings nightly, as well as a TV during the day running CNN and other news. Good to have, since the rooms come without TVs. At Bitter End, the goal is to be out and about and enjoying the water!

Excursions Hop aboard a number of the resort's sailing charters and visit The Baths, a must-see when visiting BVI. Here, snorkel the clear blue waters, climb in, around and through huge beachside boulders and caverns, and swim in private pools of water. When you're all done, climb the hill to grab a burger and a drink and look out at the view of sailboats moored in the bay. Other excursions include a visit to Norman Island, the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" or Anegada, a tiny spit of land that requires a sail on open water to reach.

Catch More Wind Kiteboarding is big at the Bitter End, and instructors are on hand to teach X Game-loving teens and their parents how to let the wind carry them away while kneeboarding. This sport is extreme and you may get bruised during the lessons but if you catch the wind, you'll literally fly through the air.

Family Dining

The resort offers three dining venues, and children's menus are available.

Clubhouse Restaurant The Clubhouse, the resort's main steak and seafood restaurant, is open-air, yet covered buffet and table service dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Boaters not staying at the Bitter End often pull into a slip and grab a meal, particularly its fine dining dinners.

The Crawl Pub The Crawl Pub provides casual dining for lunch and dinner, including brick over pizza. This pub is a hotspot during weekend evenings, where a DJ spins tunes and locals and boaters from across the islands come in for a good tune, especially on full moons. Fun for mom and dad, but keep the kids in the villas.

Almond Walk Almond Walk provides al fresco dining with buffets and live music -- the perfect place for sunset dinners.

Special Dining Options Light lunches and snacks can be ordered while relaxing at the poolside bar. The resort also can arrange for private dinners on the beach. Most families book the weeklong Admiral's Family Vacations, which includes lodging, three meals daily, and the Junior Watersports Program for ages 13 to 17.

Planning & Tips

All About the Extras A small sundry shop and a gift shop can be found at the resort.

The Art of Smart Timing July and August can get very hot and humid in the islands, and most sailors have left the area for cooler waters in North America. As a warm-weather destination, the resort is busiest during school vacations, especially around the holidays and spring break.

Getting There To get to the Bitter End, you'll fly into Tortola on Beef Island from San Juan on a smaller plane -- catch Cape Air's six- to eight-seater Cessna's for a real treat! A walk across the street from the intimate airport brings you to the North Sound Express boat launch, where the Bitter End shuttle will pick you up and bring you to Virgin Gorda. While you wait, there are a couple of boutiques and a bar offering refreshing rum drinks.

Getting Around Once on Virgin Gorda, boats will be your method of transportation.

For Mom and Dad The Spa at Bitter End can provide full services in the spa, in-room or on a beach: You name the location. Private yoga sessions are offered through the spa, including a sunrise session on a pier overlooking the marina.

Rebuilding Paradise: The Bitter End Yacht Club’s Inspiring Comeback

By: Shannon Sinnard Destinations

Nestled at the northeastern tip of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, the Bitter End Yacht Club has long been a premier maritime destination for sailors. For years, this iconic resort has drawn seafarers from around the globe, offering a serene escape amidst the sparkling waters of the Caribbean.

While the term “bitter end” often refers to the final part of a rope or chain, the phrase can also signify reaching the farthest point or the end destination of a long or difficult journey. The founders of the Bitter End Yacht Club chose this name to reflect both its geographical location and the spirit of adventure and perseverance inherent to sailors. For those who navigate to this end-of-the-line point, the BEYC stands as a haven where their journey culminates in beauty and tranquility. And, for many, it has long stood as a cherished traditional stop when exploring the waters of the BVI.

A Legendary Past, a Devastating Blow

In more recent years, the Bitter End’s name has embodied not only a physical destination but also a symbolic one. The iconic BEYC experienced a devastating blow in September 2017 when Hurricane Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes in history, wreaked havoc on the Caribbean, leaving the Bitter End Yacht Club in ruins. The devastation was profound, with buildings flattened, boats destroyed, and the once-thriving resort reduced to rubble.

bitter end yacht club virgin gorda

While many Bitter End enthusiasts were devastated to hear of the destruction Hurricane Irma left in her wake, the iconic Bitter End Yacht Club kept its loyal fans updated via its website , detailing both the damage and community efforts to rebuild this beloved BVI institution.

Rising from the Ashes

Having now been rebuilt and risen from the devastation of Hurricane Irma, the Bitter End’s name resonates even more with the idea of enduring and overcoming challenges – much like the sailors who venture to the farthest reaches to get there.

After the storm, the Bitter End Yacht Club faced a long and arduous journey to recovery. But the spirit of resilience and determination among its community never wavered. Fast forward to today, and the Bitter End Yacht Club has not only been rebuilt but has been reimagined, standing as a testament to the power of recovery and the adventurous spirit that made it famous.

A New Era for the Bitter End Yacht Club

The reopening of the Bitter End Yacht Club marks a new chapter in its storied history. The rebuilt resort seamlessly blends the charm and character of its past with modern amenities and environmentally friendly practices. Here’s a glimpse of what visitors can now expect:

State-of-the-Art Marina

The heart of the Bitter End experience, the marina, has been meticulously restored and upgraded, offering deep-water slips that can accommodate yachts up to 200 feet, along with enhanced dockside services. Sailors can enjoy top-notch amenities including electrical hook-ups, fuel, ice, showers, rubbish disposal, and laundry facilities. Additionally, guests have access to the resort’s swimming pool. The BEYC also boasts one of the best deep-water anchorages in the Caribbean, providing many of the same amenities as the docking facilities.

Culinary Delights

Dining at the Bitter End is an experience in itself. The resort’s restaurants feature locally sourced ingredients, celebrating Caribbean flavors with a gourmet twist. Whether it’s a casual beachside meal or an elegant dinner under the stars, the culinary offerings are sure to delight every palate.

Adventure and Exploration

For those with a thirst for adventure, the resort offers a wide range of water sports, including sailing, kiteboarding, windsurfing, and snorkeling. Guests can explore the vibrant coral reefs, embark on a deep-sea fishing expedition, or simply enjoy a leisurely paddle around the bay.

Environmental Stewardship

The Bitter End Yacht Club has embraced sustainability as a core principle in its rebuilding efforts. The resort utilizes renewable energy sources, practices water conservation, and is committed to preserving the natural beauty of the BVI. Initiatives such as coral reef restoration and marine conservation programs are integral to its operations, ensuring that the Bitter End remains a pristine paradise for future generations.

A Bright Future

From its storied past to its recent resurgence, the Bitter End Yacht Club is more than just a return to business; it’s a celebration of resilience, community, and the indomitable spirit of the BVI. As it welcomes back old friends and new, the Bitter End promises to once again be the ultimate retreat for those who seek the thrill of the open sea and the tranquility of an island paradise in one of the most breathtaking locations on earth.

The World's Most Remarkable Floating Hotels

Posted: 17 October 2023 | Last updated: 20 November 2023

Floatels, boatels, whatever you want to call them – hotels that place you right over the water offer some of the world's best views. Who wouldn't want to step out of bed and straight into the Indian Ocean, for example, or wake up to vistas of a historic Scottish port? Or how about waking up in a hotel room frozen in a lagoon? It's all possible at these incredible floating hotels across the globe.

Hotels to drift off in

<p>Set in the wilds of northern Norway, at the base of the Svartisen glacier, <a href="https://www.svart.no">this hotel</a> is held up for its green credentials. When it opens later in 2022, it's set to be the world's first "energy-positive" hotel (meaning it'll generate more energy than it uses), since the roof is covered in solar panels. And, of course, it has a dreamy location on the glassy Holandsfjorden fjord, built on stilts above the water.</p>

Svart, Norway

Set in the wilds of northern Norway, at the base of the Svartisen glacier, this hotel  is held up for its green credentials. When it opens in 2024 (after being delayed in 2022), it's set to be the world's first 'energy-positive' hotel (meaning it'll generate more energy than it uses), since the roof is covered in solar panels. And, of course, it has a dreamy location on the glassy Holandsfjorden fjord, built on stilts above the water.

The hotel's design is inspired by a “fiskehjell”, a wooden structure used to dry out fish, as well as traditional fishermen's homes. And it looks especially striking against its mountain backdrop. Beyond ogling the hotel and surrounding landscapes, guests can relax at the two-storey spa or get involved with activities, from sailing on the fjords in summer to cross-country skiing in winter.

Six Senses Laamu, Maldives

In an archipelago of brilliantly white islands surrounded by the azure Indian Ocean, it would be almost criminal not to make the most of the water. That's why, in the Maldives, there are plenty of hotels with floating (or seemingly floating) rooms. But Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Laamu Atoll. Surrounded by a beautiful coral reef, there are 97 beachfront and water villas, all crafted using local and sustainable materials.

Each over-water villa looks as if it's floating on the transparent waters, and is completely secluded from the rest, with incredible views over the ocean and out to Maldivian nature. The hotel has plenty of facilities too, with an ice-cream parlour, an over-water wine cellar and their signature Chill Bar, which is also built on stilts over the sea.

Arctic Bath Hotel, Sweden

This one-of-a-kind property is a true floating hotel. In summer, it glides serenely on the Lule River, and in winter, when the ice sets in, it's fixed to one spot, accessible via a pontoon. Arctic Bath Hotel's intriguing design draws inspiration from the woods, with a criss-crossed log exterior and a string of sleek guest rooms, each with direct access to the water. There's a modern cabin for five people back on land too. 

Love this? Follow our Facebook page for more travel inspiration

Expect saunas, a hot tub, spa treatments, a restaurant and bar – and the opportunity to indulge in a Swedish tradition: ice swimming. The central open-air ice pool is 'heated' to 4°C (39°F), so you can take a bracing dip before retiring to the sauna. You can also strike out on excursions including a moose-spotting safari, an ice fishing expedition and a Northern Lights snowmobile tour.

Angsana Velavaru, Maldives

This little isle is home to yet another amazing Maldivian resort. Angsana Velavaru is set on the stunning Velavaru Lagoon and has 33 'InOcean' villas, all with direct access to the water and spectacular views. The double-storey villas offer a private infinity pool, and for even more overwater action, guests can relax from hammocks suspended above the ocean.

A vast bedroom, luxurious bathroom and an enormous living area with plenty of space for dining complete this majestic over-water mansion. Guests can also indulge in award-winning treatments such as a honey sesame body polish and an olive oil body conditioner, all created using local native ingredients.

Pumphouse Point, Tasmania, Australia

In the wilds of Tasmania, Lake St Clair has some of the most impressive accommodation on the island territory. The Pumphouse at Pumphouse Point is an old industrial building, 820 feet (250m) out into the glacial waters with spectacular surrounding scenery. Inside, it's modern and minimalist, allowing you to focus on the wonderful mountain views through its huge windows. 

<p>The Pumphouse has three floors, all with lake view rooms, and a gorgeous, inviting lounge with a wood burning fire for cosy evenings in. The pontoon that leads out from the shore has ample space for deck chairs, so you can grab a book or a glass of wine and take in the wilderness for an afternoon. For active types, there are nature walks in the surrounding forest, including part of the world-famous Overland Track route. </p>  <p><a href="https://www.loveexploring.com/galleries/133512/the-worlds-most-futuristic-hotels"><strong>Now discover the world's most futuristic hotels</strong></a></p>

Stunning resorts aren't hard to come by in Thailand – the country has a plethora of fancy beachside hotels and luxury treetop accommodation. But this boutique hotel is special: it sits right on the Khwae Noi River with a number of pretty thatched villas for guests. 

Each villa has its own veranda directly over the water, with a swing for lounging on and deck chairs for sunbathing. Primarily made from wood and thatch, the hotel blends beautifully with the surrounding forest, and come nighttime its lighting shimmers in reflections on the water. From the hotel you can hire canoes or try out bamboo rafting, and there's a fascinating cave system to explore nearby. You can also enjoy a cultural Mon dance show over dinner.

Good Hotel, London, England, UK

You can feel good about staying in this floating hotel. The Good Hotel in east London's Royal Victoria Docks is more than just a Thames-side accommodation option.

Fingal, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Opened in January 2019, this handsome ship is in fact a beautiful 23-room floating hotel , permanently docked in historic Leith in Edinburgh. Once a Northern Lighthouse Board ship, it was revamped by the team at The Royal Yacht Britannia and now offers guests a seriously luxurious stay, with various types of cabin available and a deck with glorious views out to the Scottish capital. 

Once inside it hardly feels like you're on a boat at all. Bedrooms are elegant, with king-size beds, smart TVs and rain showers in the bathrooms. Onboard you'll find the stylish Lighthouse Bar, where there's afternoon tea or evening aperitifs, and a magnificent ballroom accessed via a sweeping staircase.

Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, India

Often lauded as the most romantic city in India, Udaipur has prime position on the shores of Lake Pichola. And no hotel is better placed here than the Taj Lake Palace , which sits 650 feet (198m) off the shore in the calm, shimmering waters. Formerly a summer retreat for the Mewar dynasty, it hasn't lost any of its luxurious royal vibes. 

Many of its original features, including free-flowing fountains and intricate fretwork, have been retained, and its grandeur is unparalleled in the city. Balconies made of marble offer fantastic views back to the enormous sandstone City Palace, and a pleasantly cool pool is the place to chill out after a day's sightseeing. As one of Rajasthan's most popular destinations, Udaipur can be frenetic and often noisy, but being on the water here gives visitors a rare sense of peace and quiet.

Off Paris Seine, Paris, France

What better way to enjoy the romance of the Seine than to sleep on it? You can do this at Off Paris Seine , a glamorous, 4-star hotel right in the middle of the city. At more than 260 feet (79m), this is the longest vessel permanently moored on the Seine, and its striking design is the handiwork of Parisian boat architect Gérard Ronzatti.

Rooms have excellent views of either the Right or Left Bank, and are individually designed with wall murals or bold, somewhat garish paint (if you're into that, ask for the orange room). In the lounge bar there's a plunge pool for those hot, Parisian summer days, where the city's trendiest locals come for sundowners on the decks or glorious brunches at weekends.

Sunborn, London, England, UK

If you're not rich enough to own a super yacht, Sunborn is here for you. Get the full luxury yacht experience on board this floating hotel on the Thames in London's Docklands area. Dine with views out to the sparkling skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, before retiring to the sumptuous cabins for a night on the water. 

<p>There's even an onboard spa, where you can enjoy aromatherapy and skincare treatments, while afternoon tea is served in the restaurant for a traditional British experience. Just don't get too used to it, as a yacht like this one would usually set you back tens of millions of pounds.</p>  <p><strong><a href="https://www.loveexploring.com/galleries/106430/the-worlds-most-expensive-hotel-suites?page=1">These are the world's most expensive hotel suites</a></strong></p>

As part of an exclusive new trip offered by Off The Map Travel, adventurous guests will be able to stay the night in one of these incredible glass-walled Aurora Huts on a hidden part of the Fjallsarlon glacial lagoon in southern Iceland. The two hotel rooms float atop the water's surface in summer, but in wintertime they freeze into the lake and can only be accessed via an all-terrain vehicle.
