Hurricane Irma destroyed Bitter End Yacht Club, according to a video from Caribbean Buzz Helicopters.
The resort is a popular spot for the wealthy on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. The island is next to Necker Island, where Richard Branson stayed during the monstrous storm.
Caribbean Buzz's video shows mere shells left of buildings that were once idyllic beach huts boasting floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. Roofs of buildings were tossed on the mountain above. Piles of trees now lie along the sand.
The resort closes annually during the "tropical season," the resort said in a post on its Facebook page. Employees who were at the resort are safe, the club said in a later statement.
Communication with the island had been "severely compromised" because of Irma, and the club said it was still awaiting word on the extent of damage as of Thursday afternoon.
"We are deeply saddened by the events that have taken place due to Hurricane Irma. Our hearts are with the Bitter End Yacht Club team, friends and neighbors throughout the Caribbean who have been impacted by the storm," the club said in a statement on its website. "We are actively monitoring the situation and will provide further updates as they become available on our Facebook page. We thank everyone for their patience and support through this difficult time."
Bitter End Yacht Club did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
