Bolongo Bay Beach Resort

The award-winning Iggies Beach Bar and famous snorkel booze hunt are part of Bolongo Bay’s fun, lively atmosphere.

Located on the calm, Caribbean coast of St. Thomas, Bolongo Bay Beach resort is a family-owned favorite with a great beach, two delicious restaurants and wide range of complimentary activities that keep visitors coming back each year. Book this resort for a laid-back island vibe – it’s all flips flops, calypso music and rum at Bolongo Bay, which even offers a famous weekly snorkel booze hunt.

Highlights of this resort include:

A different type of all-inclusive

There are no buffets at Bolongo Bay; think freshly-caught lobster, filet mignon and conch fritters served at two a la carte restaurants, The Lobster Grille (pictured above) and award-winning Iggies Beach Bar & Grill. Even guests who book the optional room-only rate have access to unlimited paddle boards, kayaks, windsurfers, snorkel gear and more.

All oceanfront rooms

All rooms at Bolongo Bay are oceanfront with standard amenities like cable TV, air conditioning, refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, and safe. Rooms on the first floor have private balconies with direct access to the beach, while rooms located on the second and third floors have great ocean views. There are also nine value rooms, which are a bit older but a good option for budget conscious travelers, and nine condos set further down the beach.

Fun and lively, with lots of activities

Bolongo Bay offers a ton of activities beyond the beautiful beach and unlimited water sports – not that those should be missed! Enjoy beach barbeques and Carnival theme nights at Iggies, sip a rum punch at the pool swim-up bar, participate in the popular snorkel booze hunt, or for an optional cost check out Heavenly Days, the resort’s catamaran that takes groups out to swim with turtles during the day, and on sunset cocktail cruises at dusk.

Rates start at $429 for Value rooms, $550 for Oceanview rooms and $580 for Beachfront rooms for September and October travel (per night, all-inclusive).New for 2014: All-inclusive rates include a Sunset Harbor Cocktail Cruise and a Swim with Turtles half-day snorkel trip with a 7-night stay.
