General

Is Bolongo Bay an all-inclusive resort?

Yes! Bolongo Bay Beach Resort is the original all-inclusive property in the U.S. Virgin Islands and the only all-inclusive destination in St. Thomas. Unlike large corporate all-inclusive chain resorts that many people are used to, Bolongo is a smaller, more intimate and laid back all-inclusive experience. We have one open-air restaurant that serves meals a la carte, and all drinks are included as well.

Is Bolongo Bay an adults-only resort?

Bolongo is not an adults-only resort. However, during many parts of the year (like when school is back in session) we will not have any children here. Bolongo Bay is intimate, laid back and relaxing in many of the same ways of an adults-only, but we do not want to mislead any guests seeking a specifically adults-only retreat.

How far is Bolongo Bay Beach Resort from the airport?

Our airport is called Cyril E. King Airport with code STT. It’s 7 miles and around 15/20 minutes from the airport to Bolongo Bay Beach Resort. The airport is located on the western side of St. Thomas, and Bolongo is a small neighborhood on the southern coastline. Since you have to drive through Charlotte Amalie Harbor to get to Bolongo, days with many cruise ships in will make your ride a little longer. Sit back and enjoy the views!

How many restaurants does Bolongo Bay have?

We have one restaurant, Iggies’ Oasis Restaurant, with open-air seating, two gazebos and a pool bar. Iggies’ Oasis serves delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our world-famous beach bar, Iggies Beach Bar, is in the process of being rebuilt. In the meantime, we’ve been keeping the spirit of Iggies alive at our poolside location.

Are all non-motorized watersports free to use for guests?

Yes! All non-motorized watersports are included for guests at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort. This includes access to snorkeling gear, kayaks and paddle boards. If you know how to sail or windsurf, we have those available to sign up for. We also offer weekly slots for lessons or guided sails. As well, you will have access to beach towels, float mats, hammocks, and beach lounge chairs.

What is your smoking policy? Are your rooms smoke-free?

All rooms are smoke-free at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, as are the public areas, including the Heavenly Days Catamaran and the beach. Designated areas for smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes
