Luxury Hotels: The rush of sea waves, white dunes of sand and lush greenery all await you at Emerald Crest, located on lovely Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. Here, you are surrounded by sea and a rich marine life. People visit this little piece of heaven to get away from it all, to relax, to unwind... in short to have a great time. And a great time is what we promise you at $422 to $947 per night. The good news is that you can fly in to Tortola unlike some other Caribbean resorts, which are only accessible via ship or boat.
What you get at the Emerald Crest Hotel in the British Virgin Islands is a double-storied luxury villa with superb and commodious accommodations. All the chambres come complete with four cable TVs, an FM radio and DVD player. If you are in one of the rooms upstairs, you also get a mini fridge and coffeemaker.
Whether you are upstairs or below, you have the luxury of living it up in a king-sized bedroom with an attached bath suite, rather sumptuously appointed with a Jacuzzi bathtub. You'll love the cozy dressing room and the covered balcony, offering a beautiful view of the sea.
If you happen to be ensconced downstairs at Emerald Crest, you get an extra bathroom and laundry room. You can step out into the dining room, which is next to a kitchen well-known for dishing out epicurean delights. On a particularly warm afternoon you can get into your swimsuit and head for the C-shaped pool surrounded with amenities such as a gas grill, a tiny refrigerator and wet bar.
Feel perfectly free to wander around the villa, taking in the sights and sounds of the powder-white beaches and the singing birds. Or, if you prefer to be adventurous, you could go "bay-hopping" in Tortola's many bays such as Brandywine Bay, Trellis Bay, or Cane Garden Bay. If you like water-related sports or activities like scuba diving, snorkeling or angling, Tortola provides you with the opportunity to indulge yourself.
For the more erudite, a walk through the historical ruins of the Mount Healthy Windmill, Dungeon or Fort George would be like taking a walk through history. If you want even more, there is the BVI Folk Museum in the capital city, Road Town.
Having had your fill of history -- and adventure -- in Tortola you would surely look forward to a wholesome meal. We strongly recommend that you sample Caribbean specialties like spicy goat, the West Indian roti, curries, and fresh lobster.
