Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina has been part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection for the past 11 years. On August 1st it will end its affiliation with the brand, making one of the world’s few points hotels on a private island no longer eligible for award stays.

The exclusive resort is located on a private island adjacent to Tortola. It consists of 26 guest rooms and suites as well as 10 luxury villas. The property has been undergoing an $8 million renovation including new dining options and refreshed room furnishings.

Reservations are not available through Marriott after July 31st. The hotel’s rooms were previously redeemable between 76,000 and 110,500 points per night.

Anthony’s Take: It’s always sad to see properties leave the flags of the big chains since you can no longer earn and redeem points or credit towards elite status. This property looks gorgeous and was on my list for future stays, but when I travel I want to earn points so it likely won’t be happening any time soon.
