Surfsong: A Bespoke Dining Experience in the Heart of the BVI

By Paul Joseph

Gently nestled on the southern shore of Beef Island, just to the east of Tortola, Surfsong Villa Resort offers superyacht visitors the ultimate excuse to head to dry land. Not least because it is here they will find The Courtyard, widely considered one of the British Virgin Islands’ premier dining destinations, drawing discerning visitors from far and wide.

Set in its own boutique resort, amid pristine landscapes with a romantic waterfall and a striking fire feature, it combines luxurious accommodation with exclusive concierge services and quite simply some of the finest food and drink you will encounter anywhere across the islands at The Courtyard restaurant.

The resort itself opened more than a decade ago but only formally began offering its dining service to highly select numbers of guests last year. Anyone who has visited will testify to the resort’s capacity to combine utmost privacy with a relaxed atmosphere – the ultimate setting for enjoying exquisite cuisine all served up by one of the region’s most distinguished chefs.

Executive Chef David Cioppa has over 20 years of culinary experience and at The Courtyard he has had the chance to test his skills in a uniquely creative environment. Here he is tasked with producing authentic farm-to-table fare that makes the most of the BVIs’ unique natural environment and its ability to harvest top quality produce.

Inspired by these locally-sourced ingredients, the talented Cioppa creates a new menu each evening. Alternatively, guests can request their favorites when reserving, providing a highly personalised, bespoke and intimate dining experience.

An intimate courtyard with a warm and tranquil ambiance seats up to 24 guests and the venue can also host special event dinners. So whether it’s a small wedding reception or a private occasion with a loved one, Surfsong will help to create memories that last a lifetime.

The Courtyard offers a prix fixe menu which changes nightly and starts at $65 per person. To make a reservation call 284.346.5014. You can also visit the resort’s official website here
