St. Thomas is among approximately 100 jewel-like islands that dot the blue waters of the northern Caribbean. The islands were visited by Columbus in 1493. For the next two centuries, the only Europeans to come to the islands were pirates, but in the 17th century, Danish settlers built vast sugar. The Old World architecture of its towns and villages, coupled with its tropical climate and cooling trade winds, make the islands an ideal vacation spot.                                                                             In 1971 Point Pleasant was designed and built by Ruth and Gunther Pfanner.  Except for the use of a backhoe along the shoreline, their local crew cleared all of the building sites by hand, carving the nature trails and pathways with shovels and pickaxes from volcanic stone millions of years old before any of the units were built.  In 1975 the Ruth and Gunther were given the Environmental Protection Law Award by the Virgin Islands Conservation District.  In 1988 the U.S Department of interior report stated that: Point Pleasant Resort on St Thomas is a model of economically and environmentally sound development and if this development was the rule rather than the exception, it would not be necessary to consider the dynamics of balancing conservation, recreation, and local business needs,” Everything we have come to love, living and visiting Point Pleasant is the happy realization of one couples dream.  For the past 52 years it has been every visitor’s good fortune that such dreams do come true.  Point Pleasant Resort, built on a steep hillside with glorious picture book views of many of the peaks which make up some of the Virgin Islands, Thatch Cay, Grass Cay, Sandy Cay, Jost Van Dyck, St John, Tortola, and many others.  The resort has been clothed from top to bottom, almost literally in a multi-colored ever-changing display of the most exotic plants of the islands.  Many other species have also been coaxed into thriving and blossoming in the island climate.  

This resort is an outstanding example of the unusually careful development of a steep, rocky location.  The natural and scenic amenities are both protected and made accessible to residents and visitors and are enhanced by imaginative landscaping, using mainly indigenous materials.  The villas placed in small blocks, seem to have grown out of the steep hillsides.  The slope ensures each one unobstructed vistas, as well as retaining the semi privacy of a quiet personal place in the natural landscaping.  Complementing these arrangements are a host of facilities which have set Point Pleasant Resort in a place, apart from most. The goal was, be eco-friendly, a series of winding paths lead to three amazing freshwater swimming pools, each at a different elevation and surrounded by a spacious decking. Our lower and middle pools have wraparound views of the ocean and sister islands.  At the water’s edge walk out into the ocean from Sun and Sea Bar and Grill our waterfront restaurant and enjoy kayaking, snorkeling at our watersports Mermaid’s Den or enjoy a day charter excursions on one of Seas the Days variety of boats to fit intimate to large groups for all occasions, or walk the shore and collect seashells.  A short walk down a winding path is our small, private beach named Sugar Beach, just the right size to let yourself forget the days stress and melt into the sand and sea.  The Ocean 180 restaurant is attractively secluded among the foliage.  This fine dining restaurant boosts breathtaking ocean and island views and sets mid-way down the path to our Terrace pool, from there walk the Nature Trail to our Gazebo, a very popular wedding spot.  Point Pleasant is your window into the Virgin Islands, the sea lies below you, encircling green-jewel inlands, all the way to the horizon there's sky and sea, with blue intensities.  We have all seen amazing views before, but perhaps none that can take hold of your heart and mind like this, a surreal feeling of calm we all search for and the need to slow the tempo of today's living and enjoy the moment!  Welcome to Serenity Welcome to Point Pleasant Resort...
