Oil Nut Bay Resort
Nestled on a private peninsula on the lush island of Virgin Gorda sits Oil Nut Bay, a world-class resort and residential community in the British Virgin Islands.
The property’s remarkable accommodations, eco-sensitive design and state-of-the-art technologies compliment its sun-drenched white sand beaches, dazzling turquoise waters and stunning landscapes. Rental customers choose from a variety of villas from one to six bedrooms, whether on the beach or up on the cliffs overlooking the ocean.
The Oil Nut Bay Beach Club offers a world-class restaurant, casual poolside dining, complete concierge services, a spa, and a kid’s club with nature center.
Think Simple designed and installed audio video systems throughout the villas and Beach Club plus automation systems and lighting control. The lighting control system includes 96 lighting and 6 fan circuits in the Beach Club pavilion, rotunda, restaurant, swimming pool and garden areas, using the latest centralized control system from Crestron.
The brief was to install a system that would make it simple to control the mood and ambiance of the resort, using preset scenes that could be changed easily by the management. Because the Beach Club and other buildings would be LEED certified, the system had to minimize the use of power. Because of the resort’s remote and exclusive location, the system also had to be extremely durable and robust.
Think Simple designers chose a Crestron PAC2M control system for its proven reliability, fast performance, rigorous construction and programming flexibility. Crestron D3-Pro software simplified the creation of the lighting zones, and because its astronomical clock tracks the position of the sun each day, the desired scenes are automatically triggered without the need of seasonal adjustments.
Think Simple also designed a custom control interface that allows the owner and managers to make changes and adjustments as they wish using their Apple iPads.
Working closely with local electricians and contractors on site, Think Simple kept to a tight schedule to ensure completion in time for the inaugural Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous, now an annual event at Oil Nut Bay.
In addition to the resort, we have completed audio, video, lighting and networking systems in the Oil Nut Bay Villas.
