If you like you can choose to browse the Library to find a good book, socialize with other guests in the comfortable living room or just relax on a jasmin-scented terrace.

At breakfast and lunch enjoy splendid buffets that range from the healthful to the sinful. In the afternoon take a break for Guana-grown fruit or tea and fresh-baked cookies at the Club or on the beach. Or dine in the privacy of your villa.

Scientists say that Guana has more flora and fauna than any island of its size yet studied in the Caribbean and possibly the world. This formidable reputation is one we strive to keep by protecting Guana's natural environment.
Guests who care about nature find much to see and enjoy.

THE ORCHARD Tour the organic orchard and discover papaya, passion fruit, banana, coconut, pineapple, mango and numerous other plants.

MARINE LIFE Guana has three distinct reef areas for any level of snorkeling or scuba experience.

WEDDINGS Come as a couple, small group or fill all the cottages, whichever you choose Guana will take care of everything working to plan your wedding to the smallest detail. Choose to be married on the beach or have a perfect sunset wedding on the Queen's Terrace or even a moonlit night in the fragrant Garden of Eden.

RENT THE ISLAND You and up to 35 others can have the island all to yourselves. Imagine your own private Caribbean island with soft white sand beaches, tropical foliage, mountain trails, tennis, flamingoes and a population you've chosen yourself. No moorings, no public restaurant or beach bar. The entire island will be yours.

Though most guests hate to leave for even a day, it can be fun to visit Tortola or other British Virgin Islands. The boatmen can take you to Virgin Gorda to see the famous Baths, to Norman island to see the Caves and have lunch at Pirates Bight, or we can arrange a taxi tour around Tortola stopping for lunch and shopping.

Guana monitors the number of children and the dates when they can come. There is a special during the summer called Summer Kids Weeks.
