Interval International has announced the affiliation of The Grande Bay Resort & Residence Club in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Tucked into a hillside steps from the quaint town of Cruz Bay, the resort’s luxury villas have panoramic views of neighboring St. Thomas to the west and the British Virgin Islands 15 miles to the east.
The Mediterranean-style complex features one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas, ranging in size from 550 to1,680 square feet. Spacious interiors feature airy vaulted ceilings and living areas surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies, elegant wood furnishings, fully equipped kitchens, and state-of-the-art electronics.
Among the on-site amenities are a heated pool, hot tub, fitness center, wireless Internet access, and underground parking. Members and guests also can take advantage of pre-arrival grocery shopping, complimentary pick-up from the ferry terminal, twice-weekly housekeeping, and a full-time concierge that can arrange a variety of excursions.
With more than sixty percent of the island designated as the Virgin Islands National Park, St. John remains a tropical paradise, with crystal clear blue waters, hidden coves, white-sand beaches shaded by coconut palms and green sea grape trees, and miles of hiking trails. Other attractions and activities include visiting the Annaberg Plantation, where life on an 18th century sugar plantation is recreated, snorkeling and diving in Trunk Bay, and bird watching in the forest.
