Petit St. Vincent
The 22 private cottages are designed to blend with the environment, each one carefully placed to nestle into its surroundings.
Built from local bluebitch stone, the cottages have airy vaulted ceilings with floor-to ceiling glass doors opening onto a private veranda. Each cottage has air conditioning, Italian linens, iPod dock and contemporary teak furnishings. The rooms don't have locks on the doors.
With no telephones in to the rooms, guests can hoist a flag to request room service.
The resort is centered in the east of the island with views of the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The highest point, the tree-covered Marni Hill, dominates the northwest of the island, with walking trails meandering to the peak. The island is almost completely surrounded by sand with a 1.5 mile stretch of uninterrupted beach and numerous hidden coves.
A large horseshoe reef protects the long stretch of eastern beach, and smaller reefs encircle the rest of the island. Turtles and graceful rays can be spotted among the vibrant coral.
As a private island there is nothing other than the resort, but Union Island is a 20-minute boat ride away with shops and a variety of restaurants.
Food and drink
The Pavilion is the hotel’s main restaurant, open for à la carte dining from breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu changes daily, incorporating fresh produce from the organic garden and eggs from the island’s free-range chickens. Locally caught seafood is a speciality.
The Beach Restaurant hosts tables set under a traditional thatched roof, providing à la carte lunch and dinner menus. Cuisine ranges from pizza to Caribbean barbecued chicken. During lobster season, guests can pick lobsters from the live lobster pool.
Goaties Bar is next door, affectionately named after the most senior member of the island’s staff. Serving an array of rum cocktails, it’s the idea place to finish the day.
Barbecues are regularly held on the beach, serving fresh caught fish. Private dining is also available, from portable lunchtime picnics to dinner served in your cottage.
The hotel’s wine cellar holds a collection of more than 4,500 wines, and a rare champagne collection. The island’s sommelier is on hand to assist in the perfect choice. The resort also runs special events throughout the year including wine tasting and specialist rum talks.
Families are welcome, with the two bedroom beach villas being particularly suitable with twin beds available in the second bedroom. There is no specific children’s menu but the chefs are on hand to create individually tailored meals.
Island-hopping is recommended and the island has four yachts which can be chartered to visit nearby islands, bays and reefs, including the Tobago Cays Marine Park. Fishing trips can also be arranged, as well as a trip on a traditional sailing sloop.
The hotel’s concierge can assist in booking a day trip to the nearby 18-hole golf course on Canouan Island.
This is an ideal escape to experience true desert-island luxury. The spacious cottages soon feel like home and ordering breakfast to be served on your private terrace is a wonderful way to start the day. With coral reefs, palm trees and pearly sand beaches, it has everything you would expect from a top island retreat and a warm level of service to match. It’s easy to see why so many guests revisit every year.
With no TVs, Wi-Fi or phones in the rooms, this is for couples and families looking to switch off and explore the tranquil tropical island.
