Concordia Studios

The hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017 have unfortunately left the property severely damaged. This being so, the resort is currently closed. They have no reopen date, and no certainty of reopening. Efforts are being made, but for now the reservation team will contact travelers to refund deposits once communications have resumed.

Quiet and relaxation is a prime feature of Concordia Studios, where open air rooms allow vacationers to get back to nature, without fear that nature will get back at them. This property has a long history of excellence, as reported by many guests who have gone home completely satisfied with their choice of lodgings.

Visitors hoping to stay active will never run out of things to do at Concordia Studios, as they'll have convenient access to an excellent range of outdoor options. If you're hoping to plan for some special occasion, or if you're coming with a group, this group-friendly lodging can make organizing a bit less troublesome.

Situated in Concordia, 0.9 miles south-southwest of Friis Bay, Concordia Studios welcomes customers who are interested in staying in this neighborhood or nearby. It is 2.4 miles south of the center of Coral Bay.

Activities and Amenities

The White Sand Beach at Salt Pond Bay is an easy 15 minute hike from Concordia via their Nature Trail, and it provides excellent swimming and snorkeling opportunities. Getting out on the water with a half-day snorkel sail or a sunset sail are wonderful ways to highlight your vacation. Sailing, off-shore Snorkel trips, scuba certification, dive trips, kayaking and other water sports can all be booked at their Activities Desk.



Virgin Island National Park hiking trails are the perfect place to explore Caribbean flora, fauna, and history. The resort's open air pavilion is the perfect setting for yoga, stretching, meditating, and hanging out; the views are spectacular here, and deer often visit randomly. You may rent the pavilion for weddings and other special events.



Games, magazines, and books are available for borrow, and guests are welcome to leave books behind for future guests to enjoy. The freshwater pool is open daily from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm.



Guests are also invited to enjoy a three hour landscape painting class at Concordia lead by local artists Gail or Victoria. Guests may sign up ahead of time for the Tuesday session. This class is available to all guests ages 15 years and older, or children 10 years and up when accompanied by a parent.



Crab races are an additional activity offered by Concordia Studios that is fun for everyone, not just children! Anyone can choose a soldier crab to enter in the race; just inquire about times at the activities desk. Private and group boat charters can also be arranged through the activities desk, so you may explore the nearby British Virgin Islands.



The Sundries & Souvenir Shop stocks beach towels, bottled water, beer, snacks, toiletries, flashlights, t-shirts, ice cream, and batteries, along with other small necessities that guests may have forgotten to pack. Snorkel gear and beach chairs are also available for rent daily or weekly through the activities desk.



While Concordia Studios encourages guests to leave work and social media behind, they offer Wi Fi internet access in two locations on the property, including one house computer for guests to check flights. Due to the relatively remote location, connectivity tends to be slow, and is not always available.



Regarding guest laundry, a coin operated washer and dryer are available to guests daily from 7:30 am until 9:00 pm, and bio-degradable detergent is available for the use of guests. Each unit has a private deck with clothes lines and pins to dry laundry. In addition to laundry soap, they provide bio-degradable hand and body soap and dish detergent in all of their units.



A courtesy phone is located outside registration for local calls, and long-distance phone cards are available for purchase at the Sundries & Souvenir Shop.



Bed linens, bath towels and kitchen towels are provided in each unit. To conserve water the management asks guests to use just one set throughout their stay. Fresh linens or towels are available upon request. Beach towels are not provided, but Concordia beach towels are available for purchase in the Sundries & Souvenir Shop.

Concordia offers relaxing massage services in the privacy of your unit or on your deck. Upon arrival visit the Activities Desk to arrange a massage.

Whenever there are children staying on property, Concordia shows a G or PG rated movie in the yoga pavilion after dinner two or three nights a week. Everyone is invited and encouraged to bring snacks and drinks. Visit the activities page to read more.
