No mass tourism but a lot of old-style Caribbean charm on 32 idyllic islands and cays
This is a selection of our favourite accommodation in this destination, but we do have other options that we can recommend, including homestays and villas in some locations. All our hotels are hand-picked by us for their charm, character and glorious locations. Whenever possible, we choose small hotels that are locally owned and managed, with great attention to detail, comfort and of course delicious meals.
Young Island is a 35-acre triangular shaped island, 200 yards and a 5 minute launch ride off the southern coast of St Vincent. It rises gradually to an altitude of about 150ft above sea level and is criss-crossed with walking trails. This is a top class resort with just 30 airy cottages scattered through the gardens, all with sea views and some with private pools. Wonderful meals are served under gazebos by the beach and there are two bars, one of which is just a short swim from the beach. Sailaway packages, where you can enjoy a few nights exploring the Grenadines on board one of the hotel’s private yachts with your own private captain and cook are also available.
