Marriott International announced today that the Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, which opened in mid-2010 in the British Virgin Islands, will join its Autograph Collection in early 2012. The luxury resort, on a 230-acre private island just east of Tortola, offers 67 guest rooms, suites and villas; a 60-slip marina; five restaurants and bars; a spa, and 7,000 square feet of meeting space. The resort will be the first Autograph Collection hotel in the Caribbean and Marriott International's first property in the British Virgin Islands. The Autograph Collection portfolio, comprised of unique, independently operated hotels and resorts, now includes more than 20 properties in the United States and Europe and is expected to double by the end of the year.
