Once teeming with dozens of thriving cotton and sugar cane plantations cultivated by African slaves, St. John’s is now a tourism magnet that attracts sun-loving visitors from all over the world. The smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands — St. Thomas and St. Croix being the other two islands — it is a haven for nature lovers. Well-preserved national parks make up 60 percent of its total land area, and wherever you may be in St. John’s, you are never far away from pristine beaches with clear blue waters teeming with a rich assortment of marine life. Gallows Point Resort Set on five well-kept and spectacularly landscaped acres, this recently renovated resort is a world of its own. Steps away from a private coral reef that’s perfect for snorkeling, it is still minutes away from some of the finest restaurants in the island that serve international cuisine and local dishes. Gallows Point Resort offers a breathtaking, panoramic view of the other islands while safeguarding the privacy of its guests due to its secluded location. Accommodations Rooms are impeccably and tastefully furnished with modern amenities while retaining a distinct tropical island charm. A fully equipped kitchen in every suite means guests have the option to dine in private any time they wish. However, if they feel like mingling with other guests or don’t feel like cooking, they have the option of dining at Zozo’s, Gallows Point Resort’s in-house restaurant. Zozo’s is also one of the most popular dining establishments on the island. Nearby Attractions Gallows Point Hotel is ideally located. It is under a mile to Honeymoon Beach, a popular destination on the island. The Virgin Islands National Park is less than four miles away. Guests have the luxury of [...]
