THE PRESERVE AT BOTANY BAY | ST. THOMAS, USVI. A protected 397-acre enclave and gated community, The Preserve at Botany Bay is located just 20 minutes from Charlotte Amalie, the island’s capital and location of its main airport. Community residents can enjoy a beach club with an ocean side infinity-edge pool, as well as complimentary fitness classes including Pilates and yoga. Just steps from the pool are the sugar mill ruins, remnants of the plantation era on the island slated to become The Spa at Botany Bay. Seasonally, guest chefs and mixologists are invited to the community to cook traditional Caribbean cuisine and create drinks with local fruits and spirits.
84 homesites ranging in size from 3 to more than 14 acres comprise The Preserve, which is owned by the renowed Timbers Resorts; nearly all have been sold for the creation of custom island estates. Dramatic ocean views and three private beaches are available for residents, while concierge services include preferred access and special rates for golf courses, surf and dive shops and tour operators. Airport transportation and pre-arrival grocery shopping services are also available. The westernmost tip of The Preserve is protected by The Nature Conservancy and boasts private spots for a sunset beach stroll, as well as endless natural scenery including coral reefs filled with colorful fish and trees lined with exotic birds and flowers.
ST. THOMAS, USVI. St. Thomas offers luxury retail, world-renowned golfing, and unparalleled coral reefs in addition to world-famous Magen’s Bay (dubbed by USA Today as one of the top three beaches in the U.S. Virgin Islands). It is the most convenient and well served of the Caribbean Islands, with frequent and direct flights from both the mainland United States and England.
Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is located on St. Thomas and is known as the largest shopping area on the island, as well as one of the busiest port of calls for cruise ships in the Caribbean. Residents and visitors can enjoy incomparable views of the islands by traveling on the city’s 700-foot Skyride or walking up the famed 99 Steps to the top of the city.
Another way to enjoy the panoramic view is to visit Mahogany Run, a 110-acre golf course designed by renowned golf course architects George and Tom Fazio. The course is home to the impossibly difficult “Devil’s Triangle” – holes 13, 14, and 15 – and has attracted golf enthusiasts like Bill Clinton, Michael Jordan, John Travolta and Sylvester Stallone.
Besides golfing and shopping, countless beaches throughout the island offer everything from adventure to relaxation: Magens Bay was voted one of the best family beaches on the island by Frommer’s, Coki Point Beach is famous for crystal-clear water perfect for snorkeling and diving, and Lindbergh Beach is the choice destination for locals. For thrill seekers, Sapphire Beach attracts windsurfers and Hull Bay is a favorite for surfers.
Once arriving in St. Thomas from the mainland United States (or elsewhere), many residents and visitors “Island Hop,” traveling amongst the various Virgin Islands for weekend getaways or daytrips to experience one of the top five best places to visit in the Caribbean according to U.S. News and World Report.
