Long Bay Beach Club, located in Long Bay on the West End of Tortola, provided the following update on their Facebook page. They said, “Out with the old…. watch this space” along with a new photo of the demolition that has started on the heavily damaged beachfront units. When asked on Facebook about plans for the future they replied, “Our design team is still working on the final renderings and as soon as they are made available we will sharing with our valued followers.”
While information is scarce on what is happening at the former Long Bay Beach Club we do know that the resort was sold in September, 2018 to a couple from California.
We also have heard that plans are to restore the resort to its former glory including the main reception areas, shops and the swimming pool. The resort will have the same basic format, but cater to a more high end clientele. Rumor also has it that the beachfront units will not be rebuilt, but this has not been confirmed.
