The owners' have dedicated their time and efforts to preserving as much of this tropical wonderland as possible. This isle was eagerly purchased in 1978 and has featured only one resort since ownership, the Peter Island Resort and Spa, built and maintained on a stretch of land at Sprat Bay. With a grand total of 52 hotel rooms and just 3 villa options, guests are more able than ever to take their minds off of manmade developments or attractions and immerse themselves in the natural aspects of the island instead.

There are several beaches to explore and fall in love with: Honeymoon Beach, White Bay Beach, Big Reef Bay and Beach, and Deadman's Beach–the largest out of all them with a mile-long shoreline. Each one provides a unique sensation and experience, as does every other part of Peter Island, allowing this one-of-a-kind Caribbean destination to fulfill the owners' mission of preservation and also surpass vacation expectations by simply existing. Once home to famously historical figures like Christopher Columbus, Captain Blackbeard, and Sir Francis Drake now its your turn to experience a private Caribbean island - come visit!
