Following the success of the Bar & Restaurant renovation project in December 2009, the same team of local companies were contracted to renovate the resort’s guest cottages in 2010. The first four rooms were completed in February 2011 featuring spacious beachfront balconies, luxurious ‘wet-room’ showers and furniture made from recycled teak. The remaining six rooms will be ready for the start of the new season in October 2011.
Duplex in design, the guest accommodation sits on top of cisterns that collect rainwater for the resort.
This elevated position provides superb views of The Sir Francis Drake Channel and the islands beyond. Seventy five percent of the resort’s electricity is provided by a state-of-the-art photo-voltaic solar array.
Management and staff at Cooper Island Beach Club said they are committed to supporting sustainable tourism in the BVI.
The use of organic shower amenities and Eco-friendly cleaning products enables shower water to be recycled for garden irrigation. Tree trimmings are turned into pulp and compost, and even the used fryer oil from the kitchen makes bio-diesel for the generator. Cooper Island Beach Club is the only Eco-dive resort in the British Virgin Islands, offering inclusive packages with their on-site PADI 5 star Dive Operation.
