  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to St Vincent and the Grenadines

    St Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean

    One of the most striking impressions of St Vincent and the Grenadines must be from the air flying between St Vincent and the other islands. You behold a breathtaking panorama of the sea in a multitude of shades of green, turquoise and blue and dotted here and there islands of varying sizes, frequently enveloped by white sandy beaches. There is a great variety of luxury hotels on these islands, including Petit St Vincent, a secluded, private island retreat which offers a rustic sophistication amid natural scenery; and The Cotton House, offering a mixture of luxury and privacy, contemporary comfort and historical ambiance in Mustique.

    Although much in demand by yachtsmen and favoured by the aristocracy, St Vincent and the Grenadines in particular are quite off the beaten track and uncommercial. St Vincent is a lush, tropical mountainous island of fishing villages, bananas and coconuts, with many beaches made up of black volcanic sand. The Grenadines each have their own character - Bequia in particular is charming, relaxed and very pretty with gingerbread houses, flamboyant trees, bougainvillaea and caters well for the visitor; Canouan is still quite natural and is only starting to be developed; Petit St Vincent and Palm Island to a are both occupied exclusively by the hotels we feature. The Grenadines provide an away from it all luxury holiday destination, with glorious natural scenery and great sailing and snorkelling opportunities.
