Location Guana is located in the British Virgin Islands, just minutes by private launch north of Tortola.
Accommodation Guests stay in large and airy stone cottages, each with a private terrace overlooking the sea and in a style linked to the history of the island, which was once a sugar cane plantation owned by American Quakers. There is a main house with a dining room, library and bar.
Dining At cocktail time, guests gather on the Sunset Terrace for drinks, then dine privately or join others on the terrace overlooking both the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Meals feature home-baked bread, island-grown fruits and vegetables, and of course the freshest of seafood.
Activities Swimming in the sea or the island’s private sea pool, diving, various water sports, sailing, fishing, tennis, golf, croquet, or just curl up in a hammock with a good book. The hilly island is also covered with paths beckoning guests to explore. Daytrips to the neighbouring islands are recommended.
Best time to travel All year round. The hottest months are August and September, when daytime temperatures can average in the 90s F (32°-38° C). There is more rain during the fall than at other times, but it is only ever brief, intense showers. June to November is officially the hurricane season, though it is usually still a fine time to go. Winter is about 5° F (3° C) cooler than the rest of the year, and sweaters are recommended for the evenings in the cooler months as trade winds blow continuously.
Getting there Fly to Tortola’s Beef Island Airport, where guests are met by a Guana representative. Then a short taxi ride to the dock and a 10-minute boat ride to the island (the taxi and boat cost USD 25 per person).
