The Preserve at Botany Bay

The Preserve at Botany Bay

st. thomas, virgin islands

The gentle caress of a breeze, then the soft rustle of a palm. The quiet roll of a coral blue wave lapping talcum sands. Long arms of bougainvillea inching around the cool stones of a forgotten sugar mill. Here, on this majestic island within an island, souls are nourished and nature is preserved. In all the world no waters equal those of the Caribbean. Alluring. Gentle. Beguiling. 

On the far western shore of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands is a pristine, 397-acre preserve overlooking three half-moon beaches. Here, an intimate and luxurious resort offers a private beach club, expansive estate lots with postcard-perfect views, as well as luxurious villas overlooking the sparkling waters where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. Discover the perfect place to keep the world at bay in one of the most glorious settings on earth.

steeped in history

sugar mill ruins

Excavations have uncovered rock drawings and a prehistoric village, indicating that the Botany Bay site was first settled long ago. However, the area remained largely unoccupied until the early 18th century, when several sugar cane plantations were established. They eventually consolidated and became the Botany Bay Plantation, the ruins of which include a factory building, curing house, animal mill and domestic structures. These ruins remain preserved on the property’s slopes and beach.
