Petit St Vincent

A true private island escapism

Undiscovered, unspoilt, unplugged and unbelievably beautiful, the tiny island of Petit St Vincent is a destination dreams are made of. Situated in a naturally sheltered spot on the southernmost tip of the Grenadines, it is home to just 22 cottages and villas that take barefoot luxury and pure relaxation to a whole new level. If you’re looking for plunge pools, glamorous nightlife and flat screen TVs this probably isn’t the place for you. If warm, turquoise seas teeming with marine life, palm-fringed beaches, incredible food and wine and the sound of waves gently lapping against pristine shores are your kind of thing, then this is paradise found. Experience time without television and many modern technologies to really feel you have escaped from the rest of the world. Explore the colourful corals of nearby Tobago Cays; enjoy private dinner for two under a thousand stars; stretch out with morning yoga and abandon yourself to the treetop spa. This is the place to restore, re-energise and reconnect with life’s simplest pleasures. Adults only.

Delightful Private Island Retreat

rural Virginia

Spent six nights at PSV after Thanksgiving. We were given a lovely and very private cottage with its own (rocky) beach on the eastern end of the resort. PSV has a caring, sweet tempered staff, and felt empty even though most of its cottages were occupied. There are gorgeous beaches all over this small island where you could really kick back and relax. We had great massages by the Balinese massage staff, great meals and, best of all, an amazing sail/snorkel expedition on the resort's 52 foot sloop Beauty to the not-undiscovered Tobago Keys. Captain Jeff and First Mate Simba cooked us an amazing lunch and showed us some of the most beautiful coral reef we've seen anywhere in the world. PSV does so many things well without seeming to break a sweat. It is a really special place to which we will be returning soon.

Great Anniversary Trip!

Lakewood Ranch, Florida, United States

We have stayed at this resort multiple times (last time 4 years ago). The resort provides much privacy both in your cottage as well as on the beach. The cottages are semi-modern with excellent AC and large bathrooms. I don't care about not having a TV but would personally prefer having wi-fi in the rooms but that is not the case. Food was generally very good with some highs and lows. The chef prepared a special dinner for our anniversary which was fantastic. Lunch items for my wife were great but just ok for me. The fish of the day was baracuda the entire week (a little odd) and I would have preferred some mahi or snapper in there. The beach on the west end is nice and you can get your own secluded spot and spend the whole day there as they deliver food and drinks. Service all around was excellent, especially (sure I have forgotten someone) Sudar, Selwyn, Small, Kennedy, Avonel, Kyella, and Maurice. They all helped make our stay very memorable. Music a couple nights was nice. On the suggestion side the resort could use some new beach chairs and loungers on the west end. The furniture is a bit beat up with loose arms and missing cushions. All in all highly recommended!

Beach wait service

Beach wait and room service

Boasting a digital detox across the resort, one thing that isn't compromised is service. For room service, island transportation or if you want to be left alone for an afternoon snooze, Petit St Vincent's flagpole system is a simple yet effective way to communicate with the staff. If you require service, raise the yellow flag - if you wish to be left alone raise the red flag.
