Several U.S. Virgin Islands hotels, resorts, villas and other accommodations have opted to keep their doors open to essential personnel during the COVID-19 outbreak. The USVI Hotel & Tourism Association and St. Croix Hotel & Tourism Association are proud to be able to support our members as they offer this valuable resource to the community in a time of crisis.

The Government of Virgin Islands has authorized accommodations to stay open to house essential personnel, including government workers, relief workers, business travelers and airline associates. Properties remaining open will comply with all government mandates and ensure all services, such as food delivery, are also in compliance.

Properties that have opted to stay open include the following. To make a reservation at any of these accommodations, view the contact information:

Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters.
