Luxurious additions at Oil Nut Bay Marina Village

There are some exciting additions to the Oil Nut Bay Marina Village.  For all the residents, villa guests and BVI boaters out there, Marina Village at Oil Nut Bay is building a new Day Spa that is set to be open in early 2022.  Featuring a couples massage room, two individual treatment rooms, manicure and pedicure stations plus a hairdressing station…an Oil Nut Bay marina stop won’t ever have looked so good!

With 180-degree ocean views, the Marina Villas are an exciting site for your home away from home in the BVI. With only three available for purchase, these villas are currently under construction and will be completely built and furnished by February 2022.

They boast an open living concept, covered deck, suspended pool, two bedrooms and have an optional 3rd and 4th bedroom on the lower level. Becoming a Marina Villa owner means you become a member of Oil Nut Bay’s elite community, offering complete property management services and the opportunity to put your home in the rental program. 

It also means you gain access to an array of best-in-class on-property amenities.  Whether it’s enjoying the day at Beach Club with your family, working out at the Wellness Center, participating in the various activities or keeping your boat in the marina, being a part of Oil Nut Bay is so much more than just owning a home.

If this exciting new opportunity speaks to you, Oil Nut Bay invite you to learn more by contacting the Sales team by email: [email protected].

The combination of materials such as steel and ceramic underlines the high quality and exclusiveness of this timepiece. On the dial, the world’s seven summits are marked with red dots on two turning globes and are also engraved on the case back.
