What Past Guests Are Saying
The ultimate Caribbean vacation
Your own private Caribbean is the feel of Golden Pavilion. Accommodations, location, views, amenities, and service are all five star. Kate and Tony are entertaining personalities who also provide the best in services. Kate is an accomplished cook and every meal is not only delicious but lovely in presentation. Tony is an experienced captain and they are both well versed in all things Caribbean. It is evident they have a love for what they do. The home is beautifully designed to accommodate a large group with both private and social spaces. There are secluded nooks and crannies where one may enjoy the grounds singly and there are outdoor spaces where your group may gather. The pool terrace is magnificent providing unending vistas with plenty of seating for both the sunlovers and the shade seekers. We were a group of 5 adult couples and thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub in the evenings as the sun set. The large upstairs lounge is a beautifully relaxing party room with incredible views. There is much to do on Tortola but we found nothing more attractive or enticing than staying put at Golden Pavilion. I encourage you to use the all inclusive plan...our needs and wants were anticipated and met quietly, efficiently and with the highest satisfaction. Our appreciation to the owners who have created a beautifully and artfully decorated home with such a thoughtful layout in a priceless location managed by a wonderful couple. Thank you for sharing a golden oasis with the ten of us...your unrivaled, truly Golden Pavilion.
Virginia Beach, Va
From the moment Kate and Tony met us at the airport to the day they dropped us off, our vacation was superb. The Golden Pavilion was beyond our expectations. The meals that Kate prepared for us were delicious and the desserts sinfully good. Our day trips on the Intrepid with Tony were fun filled(Bubbly Pools, Soggy Dollar, Foxy's and more). The days we spent lounging around the pool reading were delightful. The full moon party at Trellis Bay will be an event that I remember forever. The nights of pool tournaments helped us bond as friends as family. Our teenagers enjoyed surfing Cane Garden Bay, Josiah's Bay and Little Bay. Little Bay is the beach adjacent to the villa and is beautiful! Our stay at the Golden Pavilion exceeded our dreams.
I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Golden Pavilion Villa. Tony and Kate were consummate hosts and did everything in their power to make certain our group was comfortable. The house itself is stunning with beautiful decor and furniture of the highest quality. Breathtaking views and stunning vistas only complement the setting. Tony and Kate are extraorinarily friendly and their demeanor was always positive. The food and service was excellent - I was always looking forward to the next meal.
I would recommend this place to anyone thinking about vacationing the Bvis. A memorable experience, to say the least.
Like many vacations, after looking at the GPV website, I would have been happy with 80% of what I saw in the photos. The photos do not do the Villa justice. It is beautifully decorated, immaculate and a true piece of heaven on earth. Tony, Kate and the rest of the staff are perfect hosts. Kate's gourmet cuisine is amazing and Tony makes a pretty good pain killer. Every need we had was attended to from typical hotel housekeeping, to food provisioning to flat tires on our rental. As much as I do not want this gem to be discovered, I highly recommend GPV for a dream vacation.

Simply The Best
Tony & Kate are two of the most delightful, fun and sincere people that you will ever meet. From the personal greeting at the airport to our return drop off there was simply not a minute that you would want for anything. If you did, Tony or Kate immediately took care of it!
Villa is better than the pictures, Kate's cooking and Tony's cocktails (Pain Killers and fresh fruit coladas) awesome, grounds are keep perfectly, rooms and bedrooms private air conditioning flawless, fitness room very good, sat TV got all required sports and network events, the infinity pool melts into the Caribbean, and Villa boat trips to out islands (island bars too) with "Capt. Ron" (Tony) extraordinary.
Simply The Best trip we have taken to any of the islands in 20 years! Pictures do not come close to actually being there in the Villa. In fact, we plan on going back for 10 days in February 2011 to break up the winter months in Virginia.
I don't know where to start with my review! The villa is out of this world, it's stunning. The gardens are wonderful and the location is perfect. The interior of the villa is sumptuous, the pool is a dream. We were married at the villa and had family and friends staying and about 50 guests. Tony and Kate worked really hard setting everything up for us. Kate's food is amazing, she even made me a wedding cake, she really is a talented chef with the best personality.Nothing was too much trouble for them and their ideas and organisation were second to none. I feel blessed to have been married at the Golden Pavillion with Tony and Kate taking care of us and all our guests, we hope to return again!
Wow! Amazing! Incredible! Every word that describes this place has to end in an exclamation point. And the caretakers! wow! Tony and Kate are such caring and wonderful caretakers of this heavenly place. The dishes that Kate whips up are out of this world. I showed pictures to friends and they felt like it looked like a trip of a lifetimne. Which it was.I love to keep going back. This place is perfect and magical.

Breathtaking and Serene
This is the second time Greg and i have stayed at the Golden Pavillion. Each time was a magical, beautiful, serene, savory experience for us. Tony and Kate made our stay truely wonderul. Kate is a brilliant chef and Tony took us on great boat rides to great snokel beaches and his artistic table displays and helpful tips around the island were so appreciated. The owners Val and Steve are wonderful generous people. I highyly recommend Golden Pavillion for special events or just pure relaxation. Just being in the presence of both Kate and Tony makes your vacation truely special. The House is so wonderfully designed for pure comfort and pleasure and the pool is to die for. The view from the main dining area outside is picture perfect and brings you to a place of tranquility. I would go back again and again and again.!
Over the Top!
We went to Golden Pavilion Villa with teenagers, parents and grandparents and all had an incredible time! Tony and Kate are the best hosts and feel like family by the time you leave. Our most enjoyable times were in the boat island hopping with Tony or laying in the pool relaxing. We were concerned the teenagers (ages 17 to 19) would get bored in Tortola but it was the opposite. They loved it and can't wait to return. The villa's website cannot do it justice. The outside deck was larger than it appeared and the views are incredible. It has all the amenities you could ask for. The road to get to the house is a little bumpy but I understand the neighbors want to keep it that way so the nearby beach will remain almost private. We went there one day and were the only ones there! It was really the most incredible vacation ever and Kate's cooking was wonderful. It was very sad to leave and we cannot wait for a return trip.
David and Holly
Where to begin? The view is stunning, the house is spectacular, and the staff (Kate and Tony) were over the top in service and friendliness.
We loved the walk to the almost empty beach, when we could tear ourselves away from the incredible negative edge pool.
I can't say enough about Kate's cooking - everything was simply perfect.
Las Vegas, Nevada
A terrific visit with wonderful and lasting memories of the BVI
In May of last year we visited Tortola from St. John for a getaway with friends and family from St. Thomas. We had the ultimate pleasure staying at the Golden Pavilion Villa.
Prior to arriving, we were thinking about some off property activities, maybe site seeing, dining, etcetera. However once at the villa, everything was absolutely magnificent and from the moment we were greeted by Tony and Kate our plans were finalized … we weren’t going anywhere else. Tony and Kate were superlative hosts:
• Gracious … from first impression to last.
• Knowledgeable … providing an excellent property tour and answering general questions, whether about the villa and amenities or the near by beach and the island of Tortola.
• Always accessible … never intrusive.
• Kate prepared a superb dinner for us one evening. It was evident that her culinary skills as a Chef, certainly would rival any of the “Top” or “Iron” Chefs. From her freshly baked breads and succulent baby back ribs to the ultimate chocolate dessert. All amiably served by Tony … talk about feeling truly pampered.
The lay out of the villa was perfect. It provided each family enough personal and private space, yet allowed us the ability to gather and “hang out” together (the main purpose of the trip) in various areas from the cozy living spaces to the veranda and the large open pool deck. And, there was no escaping the tranquil surrounding setting and the fabulous vistas of the magnificent Caribbean.
It was a terrific visit with wonderful and lasting memories of the BVI, especially now that we have since left our own slice of paradise in the USVI (and our friends), and moved back to the mainland of America.

Golden Pavilion Villa
5 Star Service.
5 Star Design, the villa is just FAB.
5 Star Food from breakfast to dinner.
5 Star location on the island, quiet and private.
5 Star views, all I can say is WOW.
5 Star Ameneties, we loved the boat rides and gym.
The Island of Trotola has not much to offer but The Golden Pavilion made up for that.
We will come back for sure.
Do not miss this villa experience-extraordinary!
This is an exceptionally designed villa, in the Balinese style, perched on top of a hill with the most amazing views I have ever encountered.
Tortola is a wonderful island as it combines active West Indian culture with all of the picture perfect tropical amenities we long for.
Tony and Kate, the property managers will immediately make you feel at home as you step into the foyer and out to the pool deck with the infinity pool hanging over the water where you are likely to spot rays and turtles. This is luxury that feels so comfortable you relax immediately.
Kate is a remarkable chef, and she and Tony quietly suggest to you your hearts desire before it is articulated! Do not miss a cocktail on the
'secret' deck tucked into the beautifully landscaped grounds overlooking the water. Do not miss a boat ride with Tony at the helm and his decades of vast knowledge of these waters and islands. The only difficult decision is deciding if you really need to leave this property... ever. Truly I have stayed at luxury villas all over the Caribbean, do not miss Golden Pavilion.
Great Caribbean vacation
One of the most relaxing and pampering vacations ever.
A fantastic time yet again...
We just returned from our now annual stay at the Golden Pavilion. We loved it
once again; the house, the views and of course the service. The house
accommodates 4 couples very well with great amenities for all. The ocean
view is tremendous with the sunset clearly visible from the house, the pool
and the deck.
However, the service provided by Tony and Kate is what really distinguishes
the Golden Pavilion from the rest. Kate is an excellent chef and will cater all
meals for you. Meanwhile Tony is the captain ready to take everyone on board
the boat for some snorkeling and island hopping. They are always readily
available but not too intrusive should you desire to be left alone.
Overall we highly recommend the Golden Pavilion, Just don't take our time
All of the elements of a great vacation were met or exceeded: a gorgeous location, luxurious accommodations, a plethora of activities, excellent food and drink and a superlative staff. Kate and Tony bent over backwards to ensure that we had a wonderful vacation. Kate not only accommodated special dietary needs, but prepared delicious and healthy food. Tony was an accomplished and confident tour guide; he took us on a great boat trip to Virgin Gorda. The Golden Pavilion is a jewel - with Kate and Tony, it truly shines!
House is spectacular !!! View is terrific. Toney and Kate couldn't have been more accomodating. Kate's cooking was wonderfu1. Varied and delicious menus every day.
House included media room,exercise room, and spacious pool area with hot tub.
This house is great for a large family or 3 or 4 couples.

Paradis in Tortola
When we moved into the Golden Pavilion a few days before my daughter's wedding, I did not have high expectations as we had already spent a couple of weeks in a lovely villa overlooking Brewers Bay. But on entering the property it was as if we had arrived in Shangri La. We all agreed we would not leave the property until we were thrown out! Kate and Tony were the perfect hosts, I thought they might turn out that way when they pressed cocktails and nibbles on us as we were entering the infinity pool a few minutes after our arrival. Of course Anna's wedding was truly perfect, surrounded by her lovely friends and a charming registrar.
Mark misled us when he told we were leaving 24 hours before anticipated and when Kate corrected him, we were all dancing down the corridors in joy.
In truth we are not used to living in utter luxury but now I have had a taste of it, I think I might raise my expectations up a notch or two.
One of my perfect bits was when I realised I need never think about food but magically just the food I would love to eat appeared on that divine dining table on the terrace and then of course I could just walk away from it all.
My husband was amazed at the gardens, we have lived in the tropics so he knows how hard it is to keep a garden under the beating sun in tip top conditions. There were some stunning plants and trees to inspect.
Then of course there was the view, how to describve the pleasure of just sitting there wondering if you could spot a whale, dolphin or even a distant bird or two.
I am asking my husband for a contribution to this review and he remarked on the peace and tranquility he experienced. He also wanted to add that he found the staff, Juliette and Pamela when we were there, very polite and friendly.
We have 700 wedding photographs to remind us of our wonderful visit and a lifetime of memories.
This was our 2nd time at the Golden Pavilion in 2 years!!! As far as the property there is no better view than standing in the infinity pool looking over the islands and ocean. Each bedroom is unique and offers a stunning view.
Taking advantage of the free day with the boat is a must. Tony knows the islands well you can easilt island hop during the day.
The best part of renting the Golden Pavilion may not even be the views, boat, or accomations but the food. Kate is amazing cook. From fresh fruit and pastries to everyone's favorite, tuna tacos, you will be amazed and pleased with each and every meal.
I, and the seven others we stay with, highly recommend a stay at the Golden Pavilion.
Fantastic experience! everything exceeded our expectations. The villa was
picture perfect, the staff was very pleasant and accommodating, the food and
presentation was five star, and the many unique spaces gave us all (three
families) plenty of space to mingle together or privately. Hope to go back at
some point in the future.
the great escape
Tony and Kate were the perfect hosts, Kate's fish tacos were the best we have ever had. This was our second time visiting and we will be back again.
Golden Pavillion Wedding in Paradise
what can I say we chose the villa to get married in!
My husband and I lived on Tortola and of all the places we looked at, the moment we walked through the gate into the villa we both knew this was definitely the place we wanted to get married.
Both of our families came from the UK and we all stayed in the villa together, the view is breath taking the rooms are luxurious and cool and Tony and Kate could not be better hosts. Always there when you need them but also leaving you in complete privacy.
From the beautiful unique Bali furniture, the ultra modern entertainment systems to the exquisite meals prepared by Kate this was definitely a holiday of a life time for us and we are now just saving to go back!
Complete Luxurious Paradise!
Golden Pavilion Villa is an amazing experience. The villa is incredibly well designed with every comfort and luxury in place. It is laid out very well so that each of the four bedroom suites has privacy (and it's own patio) - and the common living areas are centered around the most amazing view. The inside/outside living is incredibly easy - a wonderful dining area makes for the center of the oudoor living area with an amazing infinity pool, wonderfully large outdoor couches, a hot tub, fire pit and plenty of shady, private areas. The managers, Kate and Tony, are on top of every detail and are quick to take care of any request or question. If you have the option to have your meals at the Villa you will have the most amazing culinary experiences - certainly rivaling any restaurant in the Carribean.
With the most wonderful beach a quick walk away, a gym on premises, complete state of the art office and entertainment in place and a pool table - you have everything that you might need!
This Villa is the best I have ever stayed at and I would highly recommend!
