Sitting pretty on the tiny island of Bequia, The Liming is a refreshingly grown-up resort that opts for a luxury home-from-home feel throughout its standalone suite, the villas, five-bedroom Gingerlily Mansion House and around the grounds too.
There are only a few onsite facilities here, such as an ocean-facing infinity pool, open-air cocktail lounge and overwater restaurant, as the golden sandy beaches that surround The Liming, Bequia its well-equipped guestrooms and the fine food on offer are actually all you need.
Design-wise, The Liming, Bequia enjoys a contemporary take on beach-chic stylings. Think edgy artworks, furnishings and throws in cream, sky blue and light greens, rattan chairs on the beach and thick restaurant tables made from reclaimed wood. It’s a great look that’s not over the top on design yet leaves you under no illusion that this is a top St Vincent and Grenadines resort, with undoubted five-star credentials.
One of the real highlights when staying at The Liming, Bequia, are indeed those standalone guestrooms, an enticing mix that includes a suite, one and two-bedroom villas, and the magnificent Gingerlily Mansion House (a luxury home of five en suite bedrooms with a swimming pool and plunge pool no less).
In fact, every room comes with either a private infinity pool or Jacuzzi, a furnished terrace and sea views, lounge areas, a double walk-in rain shower and if booking the Mansion, a plunge pool, kitchen, dining room and separate lounge areas too. They are also just as beautifully designed inside as the rest of the hotel, and make for a truly romantic spot if ordering an in-room meal from The Liming’s kitchen, though their overwater restaurant terrace and stylish cocktail bar are equally hard to resist!
There is no spa or gym on-site, but in truth, you don’t really need them as the sandy bays, snorkelling and boat trips, daybeds and beach service, gourmet Caribbean cuisine and the privacy of your private-pool villa are what makes The Liming, Bequia so special.
The handful of Villas and the Junior Suite – plus Gingerlily Mansion House, a luxe five-bedroom abode – are each a designer’s dream to look at, completely private and very well-equipped both inside and out. They all come with either a private terrace and swimming pool or outdoor Jacuzzi, king-size beds, double walk-in rain showers, lounge spaces and all the mod-cons, a minibar and plenty more. Suites and the Mansion then offer multiple bedrooms, lots more space and, for the latter, a kitchen, dining room and separate lounge areas – ideal if travelling to the Caribbean as a family or group of friends. All also come with sea views which can be fully admired thanks to the room’s open-plan layout, while the décor scheme is a fresh and modern take on beach-chic living that suits the resort to a tee.
Restaurants and Bars
The Liming, Bequia’s overwater restaurant terrace is superb, as is the Caribbean food served throughout the day. You’ll have nothing but the gentle lapping of water, an island sunset and starry sky for company while enjoying contemporary Caribbean cuisine here, though meals can be ordered straight to your villa if fancying a romantic night in. There is also a beautifully furnished patio and cocktail bar around the pool, which is perfect for daytime drinks, plus a lovely thatched lounge area too.
Activities and Entertainment
If feeling active, non-motorised watersports and boat tours around this pristine part of the world are always popular while staying at The Liming, Bequia, and a climb up nearby Mount Peggy for panoramic island views is also highly recommended. Aside from this, the beauty of Bequia is that there’s very little else to concern yourself with, other than walks on Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay, sunbathing on golden sands or relaxing at the resort itself.
Most facilities at The Liming, Bequia centre around the suites and villas themselves, as this five-star hotel intentionally offers a more independent style of luxury Caribbean living. However, around the resort you will find a beautiful sea-facing infinity pool, furnished patio and luxe daybeds on the beach, while the resort’s concierge will also be on-hand for anything else you need throughout your stay.
Bequia, St Vincent and the Grenadines.
