Island dreamIn the heart of the Caribbean
Destination: St Vincent and the Grenadines, Caribbean
Vacation: Secluded luxury
Seeking: Tropical paradise
Highlight: Private island resort
Sometimes it’s just not enough to get away. Sometimes you really need to put a little cerulean blue between yourself and normality. Luckily places (by ‘places’ read unimaginable secluded paradise) like Petit St Vincent in St Vincent and the Grenadines exist for just such occasions.
Petit St. Vincent resort lies 40 miles south of St. Vincent in the very heart of the Grenadines – one of the most beautiful stretches of water in the Caribbean, and one of the best Caribbean islands to visit for ultimate indulgence. Cooled by the trade winds, and sitting just 12 ̊ 32’ north of the equator, the island is famed for its near-perfect climate all year round.
The 115-acre island is home to lush green hills, palm-fringed beaches, and miles of rugged coastline. 22 exquisite villas can be found on the hillside, the beach, and the bluff along the eastern side of the island, and are just a short walk from the main beaches, two restaurants and hillside spa (naturally).
A boutique beach resort where low-key luxury meets high-end service. A place to disconnect from the world and reconnect with each other. This is Caribbean living as you dream it can be.
