Caribbean Dream. Petit St Vincent. Small Luxury Hotels. If you have the chance, visit it, Yareah friends. Luxury and relax!
Tucked away in the Grenadine islands of the West Indies, Petit St Vincent is a luxurious yet unpretentious barefoot hideaway surrounded by densely forested hills and coral-sand beaches. Set on its own private island, Petit St Vincent is a dream idyll and the newest property to join the Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ collection in the Caribbean.
Aside from offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, Petit St Vincent also provides guests the rare opportunity to unplug from the normal day to day urban technological clutches. Without the distractions of internet, phones or television, the resort provides the chance to unwind and enjoy each other’s company without distraction.
The atmosphere at Petit St Vincent resort is one of understated luxury and it is a chic yet ecologically sustainable resort encompassing the whole 115 acres of the privately owned island. The 22 one and two-bedroom cottages are hidden amongst untouched natural beauty and scattered over hillsides, cliffs and beaches with breathtaking views.
The cottages have peaked purpleheart-hardwood roofs and are decorated in shades of blue and tangled driftwood furnishings. All the rustic cottages also feature indoor and outdoor living spaces and air-conditioning, although the constant sea breezes and the careful design and placement of the cottages ensure that they remain cool even when temperatures are sky high.
There is a beach bar and restaurant, perched at the waters’ edge, under thatched roofs and palm trees. Serving a menu that pays homage to local Caribbean ingredients and dishes, it is also the perfect spot on the island to watch the fiery, orange and purple-tinted sunsets. For relaxed evening entertainment, the private island hosts weekly beachside barbecues and alfresco movie nights.
The resort can also arrange for a picnic anywhere on the island; along the beaches, forest trails or meadows. For a more exclusive setting, The Mopion Sandbank which is a tiny deserted island 15 minutes off the shore of Petit St. Vincent, offers the perfect setting, with just one thatched roof umbrella, surrounded by turquoise water and stunning views of the southern Grenadines.
Petit St Vincent offers various water and land sport activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving and hiking. Alternatively guest can charter a yacht and head further afield to discover the nearby islands, bays and reefs. For the ultimate pampering session, the hillside spa which is nestled in the trees on the west side of Marni Hill, offers treatments from a simple facial to a deep tissue massage.
