Petit St Vincent

Escape the distraction of modern life on a dreamy private island. Petit St Vincent is home to 22 beach-chic cottages, carefully positioned on the 115-acre island to ensure seclusion and privacy. Enjoy the natural environment as you wander over the hills and along the sandy beaches, exploring nearby islands by private boat with a picnic on a deserted beach. For the ultimate in relaxation, head to the treetop luxury spa which provides indulgent massages and facials, manicures and pedicures and take one of the morning beachside yoga sessions. With a staff to guest ratio of two to one, you’ll have you’re every whim catered to as you unwind in pure tranquillity.


Calm and secluded, Petit St Vincent rests 40 miles south of St Vincent in the Grenadines island chain. Flying into Barbados, you’ll catch a private plane service to Union Island and then a boat cruise to the jetty on Petit St Vincent. The transfers will take just over an hour, so take your time to enjoy the views as you jet over the sea and get the first glimpses of your paradise island as you splash over the waves. Looking to keep busy? Golf lovers should take advantage of the golf course on nearby Canouan Island while thrill-seekers can try out the non-motorized water sports on offer or dive down into the sea with a PADI diving instructor.

Your room

With super-king size beds, lounges, indoor and outdoor dining areas, as well as a sun-deck or a beach front garden, you’ll feel completely at home in your spacious cottage. Built from natural local materials to help blend into the landscape, you can expect panoramic views out across the ocean. The cottages are all air conditioned, but we’d recommend opening up the large windows and letting the Caribbean breeze flow through. There’s no TV or internet in the cottages to encourage a relaxing atmosphere so you can enjoy the environment without any unwanted distractions. Unique to this little island is the flagpole system outside each villa to call for room service. Raise a red flag for ‘Do Not Disturb’ and a yellow one for service and a butler will be at your door in no time.

Why we like it

The attentive service combined with the complete seclusion of the cottages makes the Petit St Vincent an ideal location for a magical honeymoon or relaxing island getaway. An all inclusive hideaway, you can dine at the casual Beach restaurant with your toes buried in the sand or eat overlooking the harbor at the hilltop Pavilion Restaurant. Both restaurants offer delicious gourmet cuisine prepared with fresh local ingredients. For a more romantic experience enjoy cocktails and a picnic on an adjacent deserted islet as you watch the sun set over the Caribbean Sea.
