If you are searching for a tropical holiday that doesn’t involve classic destinations like the Bahamas or the Maldives (although, you should definitely visit those during your lifetime), have a look at Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, a tiny country comprising of 32 islands in the eastern Caribbean Sea and, in particular, a resort calls Palm Island. Just imagine yourself basking in the sun, a few steps away from the beautiful waters of the Caribbean while enjoying the sound of waves crashing against the shore and the taste of freshly made piña colada.
The place is not swarming with annoying tourists, there is no traffic disturbing your peace and, for a week or two, serenity sweeps over you and you have no worries in the world. Well, the Palm Island Resort offers all of that and much more. The only way to get to the resort is by boat. Once you dock, you are warmly greeting with a cocktail drink and led into one of the 43 guest rooms, suites and villas which have been designed with utmost privacy and comfort in mind.
The island on which the resort is situated spans only 135 acres of land and is known for stunning tropical flora and fauna, particularly the colourful birdlife. There are five beautiful white sandy beaches on the island which is worth exploring whether on foot or by bike.
As for the accommodation and the luxury it offers, let’s just say that it is crème de la crème. All of the guest rooms have beachfront patios. They are sitting on stilts amidst lush gardens and are furnished with rattan furniture with Caribbean-style colourful fabrics. Each room has a queen-size-bed, a deep soaking tub, a spacious shower, a private terrace and stunning view of the ocean. Then there are 560-square-feet suites called Seagrape Suites with the same amenities as the beachfront rooms. The villas are located on the opposite side of the island and they exude elegance and luxury. Each of them have an in-suite marble bathroom, a dining terrace, a private infinity swimming pool and are stocked with Champagne, tea, coffee, fruits and snacks.
You will also be spoiled for choice when it comes to activities on the island – from hiking in the nature, cooking classes, fitness walks, cycling and trips to other islands to water activities like sailing, the trips to the Falls of Baleine, a freshwater fall that erupts from volcanic slopes, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. The Palm Island Resort has it all. watch video below
