Happy New Year Everyone! We've been pretty quiet on here but we've been busy putting things back together for our opening on the 1st of April 2018. Whilst the effects of the hurricanes were devastating we were lucky compared to most. We lost many of our decks, boardwalks and docks, some of our buildings, and sustained heavy damage to our inverter room for our solar but things are on the mend! Our onsite team are working hard to get things back on track and the good news is the microbrewery survived so we'll have plenty of homemade beer for our opening. Although we still have no phones/internet we'll try and get more updates out, but please feel to message us on Facebook. We still have a lot of work ahead but we'd like to thank everyone who has shown us support over the last few months and we look forward to seeing you all in April. #bvistrong #newyear #paradise
Thank you to all the friends of Cooper Island who have sent messages of support as we work towards rebuilding our little bit of paradise. Progress over the last month has been slower than we had hoped and following a full assessment of the damage, we must unfortunately remain closed until Easter.
Cooper Island Beach Club will open to hotel guests on Sunday 1st April 2018. If our restaurant & retail services can open prior to that date, we shall announce it via our website and Facebook page.
Our office on-island was destroyed, so our US agent in Florida will be contacting all guests due to stay with us prior to 31st March 2018. You may also call 1 800 542 4624 or +1 727 323 8727 for assistance. Our thoughts remain with all of those affected by Hurricane Irma and Maria. For information on providing aid and relief to the British Virgin Islands please go to: bvirelief.com and bvivolunteers.com
Thank you for all the messages of concern and support following Hurricane Irma’s impact on the BVI. Whilst the damage to our infrastructure was substantial, no-one was hurt and Cooper Island Beach Club can be rebuilt. If you are booked to stay at CIBC prior to 31st Dec 2017, please contact our US agents in Florida 1 800 542 4624 (toll free within the USA) or +1 727 323 8727 to reschedule/refund your trip as required.
Once we know more about the recovery timescale for the BVI’s tourism infrastructure and charter yacht industry, we will advise if Jan/Feb/Mar 2018 travel dates are viable or not. A further update will be posted on 15 October 2017.
Our thoughts are with all of those affected by Hurricane Irma and who are still without shelter, water or power on Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost van Dyke and Anegada. For information on providing aid and relief to the British Virgin Islands please go to: bvirelief.com
A really brief update just in - Cooper staff on island are all safe, quite a lot of damage but buildings still standing. Still no regular communication but a huge sigh of relief. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and will let you know more when we can #thankful #cooperfamily #cooperbvi #hurricaneirma
With hurricane Irma on the way we are battening down the hatches in preparation. To all of our patrons, vendors and staff still in the BVI stay safe and we'll see you again once the sun is shining ❤️
Hi Everyone, we're sorry to report that the tropical wave caused severe flooding to our operational systems and we have been forced to close 6 days earlier than scheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Good Morning from Cooper Island Beach Club 😁
After a quick rum scouting trip we've just returned with 2 newbies for our top shelf: English Harbour 1981, 25 Year from Antigua and El Dorado 21 Year from Guyana. We've also returned to a very nice article from Caribbean Journal, Cheers! #cooperislandrumbar #cooperislandbvi #britishvirginis #englishharbour #eldorado #rumtravels #caribjournal
Thanks to everyone who turned up to the VISAR darts fundraiser. Amazing turnout and even the heavy rain couldn't dampen the spirits.
