SCRUB ISLAND, VIRGIN ISLANDS--(Marketwire - Nov 30, 2012) - Recently honored with an abundance of top travel awards, a luxury Scrub Island hotel quickly credits hard work and a commitment to excellence as the mainstay for its success.
While basking in the limelight with a litany of honors, the Marriott's ever-impressive Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, Autograph Collection® is looking to continue up the ladder of success with the dedicated efforts of its steadfast team of hospitality professionals.

- Top 30 Caribbean Hotels, Reader's Choice Award by Conde Nast Traveler
- Best Resort by Virgin Islands Yacht & Property
- Top 10 Spas in the Caribbean by Caribbean Travel + Life

"It is an honor to be recognized by such an outstanding publication as one of the top hotels in the area," said Norwood Smith, vice president of marketing and sales of the Marriott's new luxury spa in the Caribbean after learning of the resort's selection by readers of Conde Nast Traveler. "We hope to continue our climb to the top as more of our fabulous guests share their experiences from the resort and influence others to visit the property for themselves."
