Known for its untouched beach enclaves, St Vincent & the Grenadines is one of the world’s premier honeymoon spots - and for good reason.
The white sand beaches dotted across this chain of Caribbean islands offer much-needed relaxation and luxury, but there’s another side to St Vincent & the Grenadines too: one that offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, or even to exercise your adventurous streak.
St Vincent & the Grenadines is a magnet for those who love to spend their time on the water. Sailing is a frequent, joyous pastime here, and you’ll spot white sailing boats bobbing on the water at almost every harbour.
As might be expected from such a sea-faring island chain, luxury holidays to St Vincent & the Grenadines don’t all take place on the main island of St Vincent: many of the smaller islands offer supreme hospitality and wonderfully equipped hotels too. Try Canouan Island for stunning natural beauty, or Petit St Vincent for the ultimate in luxury seclusion. Want to get away from it all? You’ve come to the right place…
Another option is Les Jolies Eaux, on royal favourite Mustique, which features a villa on a private peninsula that was designed for HRH Princess Margaret. Yes, we told you that you’d find luxury here!
There’s a real old-world charm here, too. St Vincent & the Grenadines has managed to not only retain its old-fashioned ambience but has succeeded in keeping it at the forefront. Think dappled shade offered by mango trees, grand colonial buildings in muted pastel, and an overall slow and languid way of life.
Don’t skip over this opportunity to take a step back to a simpler, more relaxing time.
Hotel of the Month
Top resorts in St Vincent & the Grenadines
With more than 40 years of experience hosting guests in the Caribbean, Inspiring Travel Company knows exactly what it takes to create a luxury holiday that you’ll remember forever. Here are just a few of the magical resorts and hotels that St Vincent & the Grenadines has to offer…
The aforementioned Canouan Island is home to the Mandarin Oriental Canouan, a hotel that lives up to its internationally famous brand name by offering top-class hospitality in a setting that blends seamlessly into the lush landscape that surrounds it. The Mandarin Oriental boasts ten bars, four restaurants, and opportunities for some of the Caribbean’s best diving along its resident coral reef.
Alternatively, why not check into the Canouan Estate, where sumptuous private villas give way to an infinity pool that looks down over the calm waters of the neighbouring beach? Golfers will be itching to try out the 18-hole championship golf course, resplendent in its dramatic natural setting.
Canouan Island itself is tiny, and at just two miles long is a haven for secluded coves and pristine beaches. Don’t leave without checking out its recently restored 17th-century church.
South of Canouan you’ll find the tiny private island of Petit St Vincent, filled to the brim with tranquil beaches and verdant green forests. The cottages on Petit St. Vincent have recently been refurbished to the highest quality, but this is a resort that eschews the trappings of modernity: you won’t find televisions, phones or internet here. Instead, spend your time relaxing at the Hilltop Spa, dining on local cuisine in the exquisite restaurant, or discovering an underwater world via the guidance of the Jean-Michel Cousteau Caribbean Diving Centre.
Bequia Island, found just south of the mainland of St Vincent, is home to the tropically-located Bequia Beach Hotel. Surrounded by greenery and with a secluded beach all of its own, the hotel has been called a “stunning oasis of peace” and the “jewel” of the Grenadines. It reflects the small, relatively undiscovered nature of Bequia itself: intimate, boutique, and the perfect relaxing choice for your luxury holiday to St Vincent & the Grenadines.
