Gloating isn't the best reason to visit Peter Island. But it can be fun, especially as you lie down for your Tropical Lime and Ginger Buff scrub in your private spa bohio overlooking Big Reef Bay. You can imagine the passing yachtsmen saying, "Wow, how can I get there?" The answer: only on the resort's boat, and only if you have a reservation. If you really want to inspire envy, "buy out" all 52 rooms & three villa estates on this 3-square-mile L- shaped island for your own epic event. Newly renovated ocean-view and beachfront junior suites plus new Indian medicinal treatments in the spa keep this favorite spot fresh amid the BVI's classic sites. Politely wave back to those yachtsmen -- or board the resort's Silmaril sailing yacht and join them. See photos.
