Islands Tortola – Fort Recovery

Fort Recovery enjoys an enviable beachfront location and offers a choice of self-catering accommodation including a luxurious eight bedroom villa.

The History of Fort Recovery

Built around an original 17th Century Dutch Fort, Fort Recovery on Tortola, is possibly one of the last standing and oldest, completely intact Forts, not only in the British Virgin Islands, but in the entire Caribbean. This site is one of the most famous historical landmarks in the BVI. Surrounded with masses of tropical flowers, & swaying palm trees, Fort Recovery offers privacy and intimacy.  Jean Lafitte, a renowned Pirate, landed at Fort Recovery in the 1600′s. Shortly afterwards, Fort Recovery was used as a Barracks for wounded soldiers, thus the name Fort Recovery was derived….according to historical evidence.


At Fort Recovery, Tortola, all villas and suites are directly on the beach, offering quality accommodation fully equipped for self-catering and furnished to an extremely high standard. The views from the apartments of the British Virgin Islands are spectacular.

These consist of one, two and three bedroomed accommodations and offer kitchen or kitchenette, patio or balcony, living room, bathroom, air conditioning, ceiling fans, cable TV, free WI-FI and daily maid service.

Fort Recovery also offers a magnificent 8 bedroom beach villa offering privacy and seclusion, which is perfect for a large group of family or friends.
