Oil Nut Bay, Virgin Gorda Set to Re-Open for the Holidays

November 21, 2017 -

Oil Nut Bay, a luxury residential and resort community located on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, will be one of the first resorts in the British Virgin Islands to reopen following cleanup and repairs from Hurricane Irma, which swept through the territory this September.

The property will reopen its Beach Club, restaurant, resort amenities, and marina on December 16. The resort is already open to its home owners and will begin renting villas and suites to guests March 1, 2018.

While the property did not come out unscathed, the foundation and structural integrity of the resort’s infrastructure and buildings was intact following the direct hit of Hurricane Irma and her 200 plus mile-per-hour winds.

The resilience of the resort is due in large part to Oil Nut Bay’s founding vision, which is rooted in the carefully balanced combination of science and art. The science is structural engineering and the art is spectacular design and physical beauty. Each Oil Nut Bay residence is carefully sculpted and constructed in harmony with the diverse topography of Virgin Gorda, with nature’s forces in mind.

Oil Nut Bay welcomed staff members, along with more than 200 contract workers, back on property just days after the storm subsided to support the immediate cleanup and restoration of the property.

“We are grateful for our amazing team and many outside partners. As a result of their herculean efforts, clean-up is complete and forward progress continues at a rapid pace at Oil Nut Bay,” said David V. Johnson, founder of Victor BVI, the developer of Oil Nut Bay. “Following Irma, our immediate goals have been to make sure our team members have a job to come to every day, to support the relief efforts of Virgin Gorda and to build the public’s confidence in the future of the British Virgin Islands. Oil Nut Bay and the BVI will come back, better than before.”

Oil Nut Bay was also reassured by the support and presence of the UK government in the early aftermath of the hurricane.
Since Irma, one new sale has already closed at Oil Nut Bay and five new villas will begin construction this season.

“We could not be where we are today without the unwavering support from Oil Nut Bay’s homeowners, who have generously contributed to the North Sound Foundation to help the relief efforts of our surrounding community,” said Emily Oakes, Director of Marketing for Oil Nut Bay.

Johnson and his wife, Pamela, created the North Sound Foundation to support and enhance the greater community. The need has never been greater than now and the non-profit is now supporting the relief and rebuilding of the Virgin Gorda community. In addition to ongoing clean-up, supplies and long-term planning with the government and community, the North Sound Foundation and Oil Nut Bay have adopted the Robinson O’Neal Elementary School in the North Sound and will be spearheading the rebuilding of the school, which was heavily damaged during Irma.
