If you haven’t experienced Mariner Inn and Marina in Tortola, British Virgin Islands this year, then you truly haven’t experienced The Moorings base at all!
Following a $15 million investment, The Moorings proudly opened the Mariner Inn and Marina in the BVIs on January 29, 2009. The inviting reception area opens to a landscaped plaza, with panoramic views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel. From here, visitors can stroll among the new retail shops or stop in the café serving island pastries, ice cream and gourmet coffee. A spa is also available, as well as a business center with free Wi-Fi, swimming pool, a full service restaurant and dockside market.
The Moorings is dedicated to preserving the cruising grounds it operates in, and therefore environmental considerations were central to the design and building of the new base. As the most modern and environmentally-friendly charter base in the Caribbean, the new base features:
- Desalination plant provides 60,000 gallons of water daily
- Laundry operation that recycles treated water, saving 12,000 gallons daily
- A new marina that features a flow through breakwater assisted by a pump, which can circulate over 50 million gallons of water per week!
The Mariner Inn Hotel
Located in The Moorings Marina, rooms at the Mariner Inn have been renovated to provide customers with luxurious accommodation. These ocean front hotel rooms with a balcony overlooking the harbor are perfect for those wishing to extend their vacation. Customers choosing an evening start or simply wishing to freshen up prior to departure will also be able to benefit from the use of a new, modern club-style shower facility with private dressing area.
Charlie’s Bar & Restaurant
A particular highlight of the Moorings Marina is Charlie’s Bar & Restaurant. Aptly named after The Moorings founder, Charlie Cary, this open-air restaurant is built out over the water and offers a casually elegant atmosphere including fantastic harbor views and cooling breezes. Sleeking furnishings, a soaring natural wood ceiling, sultry lighting, the coldest cocktails and a blazing pizza oven all tantalize the senses!
