The Hon. Ralph T. O’Neal, OBE, Premier of the Virgin Islands (U.K.) officially opened the newly paved public road to Nail Bay Oct. 2.

‘The opening of this newly concreted 22 feet wide public road to Nail Bay, beginning at the intersection at Pond Bay and the existing main Valley to the North Sound road, marks the completion of a major infrastructure project. This will make access to all the various properties along the northwestern shore of Virgin Gorda such as Pond Bay, Mango Bay, Mahoe Bay and Nail Bay much more comfortable for both residents and tourists alike who no longer have to navigate on unpaved dirt roads that washed away after each rain,’ said Mr. Ajit Mathew George, Managing Director of Nail Bay Resort. He has been eagerly looking forward to this day since he first came to Nail Bay almost twenty-seven years ago in December 1982.

The developers of Nail Bay Resort recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (‘MOU’) with the Taj Hotel Resorts and Palaces to develop in Virgin Gorda the first Taj Exotica Resort, Spa & Luxury Residences in the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Mr. George said that by completing the paving of this road three months before the end of this year, the Government of the Virgin Islands has once again demonstrated its commitment to attract a world class five star brand with an outstanding reputation for extraordinary service around the world.

According to BVI Platinum, ‘This historic 148 acre former sugar plantation below Gorda Peak with almost a mile of waterfront overlooking Sir Francis Drake Channel on the north western shore of Virgin Gorda has been in the process of being developed into a luxury villa resort with over 50 million dollars invested to date. Over the past three years, most of the secondary roads within Nail Bay have been paved in concrete after all the utilities were placed underground. Generators were installed to automatically provide stand-by electricity to all lots together with a state-of-the art internal water distribution system served by a desalination plant at Nail Bay.

‘Rated #1 hotel in Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda by and recommended by Frommers and The Best of the British Virgin Islands and named the best value in Virgin Gorda by Travel+Leisure Magazine, Nail Bay offers numerous distinctive villas, apartments and rooms with magical sunset views and three sun bleached, deserted, sandy beaches with great snorkeling. Nail Bay also offers modern conveniences such as ADSL internet service, satellite television and radio as well as DVD players and iPod stations and dining at the SUGARCANE restaurant.
